Haptic feedback on the side stick has been used in previous research on assisting pilots in recognising flight envelope limits. Pilots indicated, however, that it was not always clear what the haptics were trying to tell them, leading to a lower system acceptance. This paper describes the design and evaluation of a visual display in...

This exploration study focuses on the braking behaviour of World Tour cyclists during a descent. For this study, 8 riders descended over 6 trials using a ‘sensor bike’. As part of this particular study, a novel brake sensor is developed and validated in practice. The sensor package can be transferred between bicycles, allowing each rider to use...

A lot of concrete structuressufferingfrom ASR show a decrease in material properties. However, it is not clear what might be the influence of ASR on structural behavior. Influence of restraint is often ignored in material property measurement, while reinforcement is present as a restraint of ASR expansion in most structures.Thisresults in so...

Hydrocarbon or geothermal reservoir often consists of several rock layers from different lithology. The various lithologies have their own number of mechanical properties and the layering effect introduced the term of mechanical contrast, which represents the ratio of rock strength between adjacent layers. Mechanical contrast and confining...

Behavioral treatment shows long-term success among children with AD(H)D, but is often expensive and hard to bring into practice. Flowy is a wristband that supports behavioral interventions by giving rhythmic vibrations as reminders for behavioral change.
Rhythmic vibrations on the wrist have shown to have a calming effect, and can alert...

Tour formation is a distinguishing feature of freight transportation. An increasing amount of research is dedicated to the consideration of tour formation in freight simulation models, but these tour formation models lack statistical calibration on empirical data, do not represent shipments explicitly, or focus on a narrow segment of freight...

In this report an analysis is presented on the impacts of weather codes on travel behavior. Loop detector data of seven segments in different provinces in the Netherlands are analyzed with regression models with autoregressive errors. Weather codes were found to be significantly influencing travel demand. Particularly codes orange for...

An important challenge in developing a social robot is making the interaction between human and robot to be more pleasant and convenient. It could be obtained by making the robot to develop, i.e. change its behavior over the course of time. Here we study two aspects of development: behavioral adaptation and behavioral complexity to which we...

When looking at the world around us, most of our surroundings are artificially constructed. These constructions have persuasive power and affect human behaviour, whether intended or not (Tromp & Hekkert, 2018). The industrial design discipline is responsible for configuring our environment, and therefore, for the influence that they might...
