Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) aim to increase safety and reduce mental workload. However, the gap in the understanding of the closed-loop driver-vehicle interaction often leads to reduced user acceptance. In this research, an optimal torque control law is calculated online in the Model Predictive Control (MPC) framework to guarantee...

Haptic shared control (HSC) has been shown to be useful in a wide variety of applications by providing the benefits of automation while keeping the human in the loop. In recent years, providing additional visual feedback has been found to provide benefits to HSC interfaces by complementing its advantages and mitigating its weaknesses. However,...

Aito has developed a technology that can be placedunderneath surfaces to give haptic feedback. They make use of piezoelectricdiscs to sense a pressure difference and actuate a pulse if this differencereaches a certain level. This system is possible because of the piezoelectriccrystals in the discs. These crystals create...

Over the last few years, technological innovations led to the development of new haptic interfaces. SenseGlove, a Dutch technology start-up, developed an exoskeleton-based haptic interface capable of motion tracking and providing haptic feedback. The academic industry has been identified as a potential target group for this product. However,...

Driving with driver assistance systems utilising haptic shared control (HSC) can lead to annoyance, or even disuse, when the intent of both entities differs. In order to increase compliance and acceptance of these systems, this study explores two types of visual information projected onto the outside scenery. One visualisation portrays only the...

In this thesis, we focus on flexible haptic feedback applications which rely on the sensation of touch to display a feedback to the user that establishes a system to user interaction. Piezocomposites made of piezoceramic and polymer phases can be used here due to their high flexibility and piezoelectric properties that enable them to deform...

The arrival of highly automated vehicles introduces a new interaction between the vehicle and driver. System limitations during highly automated driving require the driver to be ready to take back control at request.<br/>Previous studies on the take-over process concluded that the driver requires a transition period to stabilize vehicle control...

Interacting with holograms is something which is widely speculated about. Combining holographic projections with haptic feedback and gesture control might bring this concept closer to reality. This project aims at exploring the possibilities of combining these three technologies into a combined virtual control system. Project owner Safran...

This document details a lab study into bimanual synchronised haptics, followed by the design of a product that can be used in combination with the SenseGlove to provide their wearer with haptic feedback based on how they operate a steering mechanism in Virtual Reality. The Dutch Ministry of Defense approached SenseGlove B.V., a company...

An appropriate understanding of a machine's competences may be critical for safe use. Sharing measures of real-time function reliability could help users to adjust their reliance on machine capabilities. We designed a vibrotactile interface that communicates spatiotemporal information about surrounding events and further encodes a representation...

In this report the finger vibrotactile subsystem of the SoftGlove wearable haptic feedback glove is discussed. This system is an upgrade over the vibrotactile feedback that the current SenseGlove haptic feedback glove provides. The designed system consists of a linear resonant actuator (LRA) on each finger, which is controlled by a dedicated LRA...

de Rooij, Gijs (author)
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...

Teleoperation is by nature a deprivation of the senses, which can pose a handicap when operating in an unknown and even dynamic en- vironment. Noticing moving obstacles in such a situation can prove to be quite difficult and the UAV runs the risk of colliding with them. Previous work designed a shared control haptic interface based on the...

While touch Interfaces have greatly improved the user friendliness and functional possibilities of devices, haptic feedback has been lacking in user interface design. Good Haptic feedback not only gives confirmation of a key press, but also enriches the user interaction and improves the usability of interfaces.<br/>This absence of haptic...

The technological advancements in the automotive industry have enabled the automation of numerous routine driving tasks. As a result, the art of driving has become a control task with a strong supervisory character, including the common human factor issues. Haptic Shared Control has been shown to be useful in keeping the driver in-the-loop by...

Automation in a domestic environment is not flawless and human interference will be necessary, for implementing robots in this environment. <br/>When remotely controlling semi-autonomous robots, proposed concepts can be divided into two main concepts: To trade control back and forth between the human and the operator and to share control...

This thesis describes the design process to enhance the music festival experience for hearing-impaired people. This assignment was set up to make the MOJO backstage exhibition at Museum Prinsenhof Delft inclusive for hearing-impaired people. First, context mapping research with hearing-impaired and hearing festival visitors shows that...

Crew of small fast ships often experience exces- sive vertical accelerations when sailing in waves, leading to discomfort and injuries. In an attempt to avoid this, in good visibility experienced operators reduce speed voluntarily when they anticipate that the next vertical peak acceleration will be unacceptably large. However, at night and...

The FRISC is a high speed craft of the Netherlands Navy which came into use in 2012. Because these vessels sail with speeds up to 45 knots in inshore waters, a large amount of focus and accurate path following is needed for safe navigation, and due to large accelerations, there is a high level of physical strain. These two factors cause a high ...

Haptic Shared Control (HSC) can improve operator performance during teleoperation. HSC uses assistive forces on the master device to guide the operator's control input towards a reference trajectory. However, the reference trajectory might be incorrect due to inaccuracies in the sensed or modeled environment and thus not match the intended...
