Several useful technologies to help people with dementia already exist. Robotic pets, for example, have been shown to alleviate negative symptoms associated with dementia. Most robotic pets, however, only have pet-like functionality. This is useful on its own, but adding additional care functionality would be helpful. A different useful tool for...

With the advancement of Artificial Intelligence leading to increasingly human-like outputs, assessing a machine’s ability to exhibit human-like intelligence has become more essential than ever. This study aims to investigate how human-like chess players perceive four conditions: one human opponent and three different types of algorithms. One of...

This work introduces a novel methodology for the development of interpretable reduced-order dynamic models specifically tailored for jumping quadruped robots. Leveraging Symbolic Regression combined with autoencoder neural networks, the framework autonomously derives symbolic equations from data and fundamental physics principles capturing the...

The promotion of desirable behaviours, such as socially appropriate or health-promoting actions, can be bolstered through a deeper understanding and awareness of the values that underpin the associated behavioural choices. Various implementations for promoting behaviour change based on goals already exist in Human-Robot Interaction, but, since...

Airlab, a collaboration between TU Delft and Ahold Delhaize, is developing Albert, a robot tailored to work in a complex supermarket environment. Key to Albert is a product detection and classification module that tells it what products to grasp and where they are located in a shelf. Albert’s existing YOLO‑based product detector a significant...

Lower-limb exoskeletons often use trajectory-tracking control to define the device's motion and assistance level. One challenge lies in ensuring a smooth and comfortable interaction between the user and the robotic device by defining a reference trajectory. While recent research has focused on generating individualized gait patterns based on...

Coggins, T.N. (author)
In the introduction of this thesis, I contend that robot ethics, as a research field, generally treats privacy as the appropriate distribution of information, and therefore overlooks privacy concerns raised by robots beyond this conceptualization’s purview. I illustrate this contention by evaluating a hypothetical case involving a household...

Panichi, Edoardo (author)
In this thesis, we introduce a novel approach aimed at enhancing the jumping and landing capabilities of quadruped robots. Our method integrates both model-based and model-free strategies and features a behavioral cloning framework designed to reduce computational delays often encountered in trajectory optimization.<br/><br/>Initially, we build...

van der Linden, Jesse (author)
The increasing presence of robots calls for a more seamless and information-rich communication method between humans and robots. This paper explores how natural user interface (NUI) modalities, particularly speech and gesture controls, can be used through augmented reality (AR) to operate robots. The increasing presence of robots calls for...

Falling remains a large source of (traumatic) injuries and healthcare costs. Over the past years, different actuators have been developed in the field of wearable robotics to help prevent injuries from falling. To increase the wearability of these systems, the weight of power storage can be decreased with intermittent instead of continuous...

This paper presents a hierarchical reinforcement learning framework for efficient robotic manipulation in sequential contact tasks. We leverage this hierarchical structure to sequentially execute behavior primitives with variable stiffness control capabilities for contact tasks. Our proposed approach relies on three key components: an action...

This thesis focuses on a vertical farming system designed for growing crops. The system’s deficiencies were identified during a company visit where the system was operating. An analysis was conducted to see when all deficiencies would be resolved. It revealed that the vertical farm robot had to be redesigned to grab seven benches deep to...

Throughout history, human progress has been defined by the mastery of materials, transitioning from stone and bronze to the steel age. However, this progression has not only been defined by the materials utilized but has also encompassed a shift in processes, moving from the industrial to the information era. Despite the advances in fabrication...
