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...

Teleoperated semi-autonomous care robots aim to alleviate work pressure from care workers. Unlike many traditional stiff position-controlled robots, the care robot is operating in a shared environment with humans that is often unpredictable and unknown. Especially when dealing with tasks that involve contact with the environment, modulation of...

Daily stress is a problem that many people are suffering from. In previous research a prototype was developed to help users to identify their own stressful places and encourage them to conduct self-training exercises in those locations. This prototype is called ‘Grippy’. The goal of this project is to explore what qualities Grippy’s vibration...

Improving the safety level of aviation is vital to prevent serious accidents. One key area where improvements can be made is the prevention of loss of control occurrences, by preventing the aircraft state to pass beyond the limits from which no recovery is possible. Such improvements can focus on improved monitoring of the main flight parameters...

Haptic assistance (HA) 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 HA interfaces by complementing their advantages and mitigating their weaknesses. However, the...

Limitations of a haptic device can cause distortions of the force feedback it presents. Just-noticeable difference (JND) in system dynamics is important for creating transparent haptic interaction. Based on the previous work, this article presents a unified model that extends the existing JND rule. Our approach projects the JNDs in the...

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...

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,...

Telemanipulation systems - in 1925 a vision to remotelytreat patients, today widely adopted in a variety of applications - allow humanoperators to perform tasks which otherwise could not be performed, due to, forexample, limitations with respect to distance (e.g., space), scale (e.g.,surgery or micro-assembly) or hostile...

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...

An integral part of creating compelling and useful immersive virtual environments is the presence of haptic feedback, where both kinesthetic and cutaneous feedback convey unique information critical to object handling and manipulation. State-of-the-art haptic gloves are broadening the workspace and degrees of freedom for hand motion in VR,...

Modulation of the frictional force of a fingertip sliding over a surface-haptic device can produce compelling sensations of texture and relief. The virtual sensation is particularly apparent and feel as fixed in space if the stimulus is rigorously correlated with the displacement of the finger. While frictional textures tactually resemble...

Objective: This study aims to compare the effectiveness and subjective acceptance of three designs for haptic lane-keeping assistance in truck driving. Background: Haptic lane-keeping assistance provides steering torques toward a reference trajectory, either continuously or only when exceeding a bandwidth. These approaches have been...

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...

Current transformational developments in automotive user interface (UI) technology are causing a shift in emphasis from safety and efficiency to emotion and flexibility. The many factors to consider in parallel make this a difficult process, in which technological affordances all too easily push the user to the background. To address this...
