The field of Tactile Internet (TI) is transporting physical interactions over vast distances as if they were near. This teleoperation method increases the quality of tele-engineering, telesurgery and many other fields. However, it requires the strict end to end latency constraints of a few ms, which is still out of reach. This thesis looks at...

The haptic feedback signal in haptic interfaces is usually in the form of a force on the control device. In contrast, the “active side stick”, investigated in the 80s and 90s, uses an admittance display, whereby the position of the device is linked to the feedback signal, and force applied on the device is used as the control signal. These...

Current commercial Driver Steering Assistance Systems (DSAS) focus on path-tracking performance without taking into account driver intentions. Improved driver-automation interaction can be achieved by sharing vehicle lateral control through torques. Furthermore, integrating a driver steering-torque model allows to better match driver intentions....

This project was meant to explore social connection between people through haptic interfaces based on tactile vibrations, but it ended up being a reflection on how technology has been influenced by our understanding of human cognition and how new trends in cognitive science can help to create interfaces that make our digital interactions...

There are approximately 285 million people worldwide living with a visual impairment and the rate of acquired blindness is expected to continue increasing. Assistive technology for them is progressively being developed in order to enable independent living. For the blind and visually impaired, the tactile sense is the primary source of...

Traffic jams occurring on highways cause increased travel time as well as increased fuel consumption and crashes. Traffic jams without a clear cause, such as an on-ramp or an accident, are called phantom traffic jams and are said to make up 50% of all traffic jams. They are the result of an unstable traffic flow caused by human driving behaviour...

Collaborations are often transdisciplinary whereby people with different backgrounds need to be able to work together and therefore share knowledge. This means people have to cross knowledge boundaries. Crossing these boundaries can be done with boundary objects that help to transfer knowledge across these boundaries (Carlile, 2002, 2004). Touch...

This study proposes an LCA system that provides haptic guidance during lane changes. This system is fully integrated with LKA functionality to provide continuous lateral support during highway driving. Two different system configurations of this LCA are investigated. One is a generalized LCA that provides lane change reference trajectories based...

Background Upper limb prostheses help people with an upper limb deficiency in performing activities of daily living. They can be divided into two categories; body-powered and externally powered prostheses. The advantage of body-powered prostheses is that they provide feedback to the user. The advantage of externally powered prostheses is the low...

More and more vehicles have multiple advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS), that take over tasks from the human driver, thereby taking the driver out of the loop of control. This might create a discrepancy between the responsibility that the human driver feels and the responsibility that is attributed to them when something goes wrong....

Span, Joeri (author)
In haptic shared control (HSC), an alternative to full automation, a human operator (HO) performs a steering task while being assisted by force feedback on the control device. Human-haptic conflict, caused by misalignment of intentions or different use of reference information, is a source of annoyance and controllers should be designed to...

Many patients with an upper-limb deficiency choose not to wear their prosthetic devices due to a multitude of reasons, including physical discomfort and unintuitive, cognitively demanding control methods. A new haptic interface was developed combining the desirable control characteristics of body-powered control prostheses with the comfort of an...

Road safety is still a challenging issue. In 2020, 1.35 million people have died as a result of traffic accidents, where the number one cause of death for young adults between the age of 5 and 29 is car accidents. In an attempt to improve road safety, the automotive industry has developed numerous types of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems ...

Keeping a healthy work/life balance can be a daunting task in today’s overstimulated society. For many of us, a regular day can feel like running on a treadmill. This results in fast, restricted and shallow breathing throughout the day. Whereas, the right breathing rhythm can have a profound impact on our (mental) well being and overall...

Ultrasonic surface-haptic touchscreens produce compelling tactile sensations directly on the users' fingertips. The tactile sensations stem from the modulation of friction produced by acoustic radiation pressure, which reduces the contact between the skin and the glass plate. During this process, some of the vibrations are partly absorbed by...

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 study, an optimal torque control law is calculated online in the Model Predictive Control (MPC) framework to guarantee...

Humans efficiently estimate the grip force necessary to lift a variety of objects, including slippery ones. The regulation of grip force starts with the initial contact and takes into account the surface properties, such as friction. This estimation of the frictional strength has been shown to depend critically on cutaneous information....

Neurorehabilitation research suggests that not only high training intensity, but also somatosensory information plays a fundamental role in the recovery of stroke patients. Yet, there is currently a lack of easy-to-use robotic solutions for sensorimotor hand rehabilitation. We addressed this shortcoming by developing a novel clinical-driven...

The use of robots has attracted researchers to design numerous haptic training methods to support motor learning. However, investigations of new methods yielded inconclusive results regarding their effectiveness to enhance learning due to the diversity of tasks, haptic designs, participants skill level, and study protocols. In this review, we...

Electrovibration holds great potential for creating vivid and realistic haptic sensations on touchscreens. Ideally, a designer should be able to control what users feel independent of the number of fingers they use, the movements they make, and how hard they press. We sought to understand the perception and physics of such interactions by...
