The use of social robots increased in the past few years. Current technology, however, lacks in de- ploying a single robot for different applications without the help of a human being. Current solutions are time-consuming, labour intensive and hard to generalize. Being aware of its surroundings, in terms of environment and context, the robot can...

A necessity in driving simulation testing is to understand and attenuate simulator sickness in urban environments to reduce the number of undesired drop-outs. This final thesis explains a 6 degree-of-freedom simulator sickness prediction model based on observer theory including the visual system. The model incorporates state-of-the-art knowledge...

The modern era is witnessing a crucial revolution regarding the driving concept, towards a more assisted and automated way of driving. Despite the advantages such conception have been extensively predicted and supported in literature, a direct transition from manual to fully automated operation is at the current moment not feasible, both for...

Traditional analysis of human manual control behaviour is currently constrained by the linear time-invariant assumption of the state-of-the-art “cybernetic” approach. This implies that time-varying and nonlinear aspects of human behaviour are generally overlooked, while these could be critical characteristic factors in, for example, the...

Delirium occurs in upto 80% of the ICU patients and is one of the most common source of morbidity and mortality in the ICU. Inattention is one of the core features of delirium and affects 97% - 100% of the delirium patients. This indicates that attention can be a good parameter for detecting delirium. In literature, it has been found that the...

Introduction. To prevent burns from scar formation and contraction, the use of splinting therapy in the early phase of wound healing is considered as an effective non-surgical method. Splinting entails the application of a mechanical load in the opposite direction of the contractile force within the wound, based on the assumption that wound- or...

BACKGROUND - In a variety of patients with locomotive disorders gait efficiency is often assessed using mobile metabolic gas analysis during rehabilitative interventions. Conventionally, these measurements take 6 minutes per evaluated condition (e.g. with/without ankle-foot-orthosis; AFO). This duration is required since there is a dynamical...

Autonomous vehicles have advanced rapidly in the last decades. The automotive industry is making valiant efforts to strengthen autonomous vehicle technologies and improve overall road safety. Besides actual safety, feeling safe is equally important. In other words, there is also a socio-technical perspective of self-driving vehicles that should...

Lane change manoeuvres are known to vary widely in lane change duration. This is thought to be an effect of the surrounding vehicles and personal preference of drivers. However, little is known about the effect on steering behaviour during a lane change manoeuvre. Moreover, the relation of the effect of traffic to inter- and intra-driver...

Physical activity and mobility are important indicators of the recovery process of patients in the general ward of the hospital. Currently, monitoring mobility of hospitalized patients relies largely on direct observation from the caregivers. Accelerometers have the potential to quantify physical activity of patients objectively and without...

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...

Today's coastal zones are densely inhabited as the majority of the world's population lives in these attractive areas. The shorelines in coastal zones are shaped by complex spatial and temporal variable interactions between natural forcings like changes in mean sea-level, tides, wave and wind conditions, and storm surges. Besides, natural...

Traffic is a self-organising, regulated system, but there are several ambiguous situations where no rules apply. In such situations, communication is important in order to achieve a smooth traffic flow and a safe situation. However, in the majority of traffic conflicts, adequate coordination between road users is lacking. Communication is...

Social Robotics is an emerging field in Computer Science. Most social robots currently commercially available to buy do not have fast hardware components. As a result, the built-in software has low accuracy and performance with (amongst others) speech and facial recognition and dialogs during social interaction with users. Cloud computation...

Modern web information systems use machine learning models to provide personalized user services and experiences. However, machine learning models require annotated data for training, and creating annotated data is done through crowdsourcing tasks. The content used in annotation crowdsourcing tasks like medical records and images might contain...

Adolescents and young adults (AYAs) with cancer, aged from 15 to 39 years, are making the transition from childhood to adulthood. When the burden of cancer is added, it becomes part of this extraordinary and challenging time in their growth and development. Cancer affects the psychosexuality of AYAs as well as intimate relationships, which in...
