Neglected and abandoned places in the contemporary city are typically understood as negative, problematic issues followed by a tendency of straight-forward architectural solutions. Considering such places as a result of accumulating city processes and conceptualizing them as ”cuts’’ in the urban and architectural tissue opens up an unforeseen...

Chronic (persistent) pain is a global health concern that affects one in ten adults ( Europe Pain Report, 2004). It is associated with pain on certain tender points of the body when staying still for long periods. Performing physical activity is key in combating this illness, but is also a challenge as patients suffer from fear of movement in...

Task-parameterized movement representation, as an approach for the generalization of demonstrations, is used to represent data from multiple local perspectives within the global reference frame, through which more accurate information about multiple aspects of the movement is given. The estimated transformation between the different perspectives...

The focus of this project is two-fold: first it explores how animation can be used to make functional robots more intuitively understandable. A framework for functional robot developers, to apply animations in the designed behaviours of their products, is proposed. Second, it demonstrates the value of the incorporation of animated behaviours, as...

Maker movement is emerging in Shenzhen which is seen as one of the catalysts in facilitating mass entrepreneurship and mass innovation. Because of its rich resource in Hardware, Shenzhen attracted lots of makers and startup teams to start their businesses. This is timing that Shenzhen heads to another phase of city development which is related...

As world urbanization continues apace and total population increases, there is an immediate demand for better monitoring and exploitation of space. In view of the above, the “Smart Cities” concept has been developed and numerous efforts are made to deploy technology to this end. The main information needed for city development and planning is...

Wearable robotic lifting aids compensate a proportion of the gravity during heavy lifting and can thereby reduce the burden on the operator’s musculoskeletal system. This study investigates the effect of errors in the compensation force of an inaccurate load compensation system on fast reaching movements of an operator. In an experimental study,...

Elastic joints endow robots with advantages including energy-efficiency, safety and performance. To optimally actuate such joints, robotic tasks are formulated as optimal control problems with task objectives and their solutions provide the optimal control policies. However, two general challenges while solving these problems exist. They include...

Expectations about future events influence motor behavior in a large extent. Behavioral studies have demostrated that cognitive processes such as the generation of expectancy have an effect on the preparation of voluntary movements. These experiments involve motor preparation paradigms in which reaction times (RTs) decrease with the expectancy...

As the pressure on elderly care is strong, preventive policy for health care is therefore essential. The goal of prevention for elderly is to keep older adults healthy, autonomous and independent as long as possible, even when they already need daily care. A preventive measure which is increasingly gaining popularity over the past few years is...

Expressing creativity answers to fundamental human needs such as Autonomy, Competence and Self-Esteem (Sheldon, Elliot et al. 2001). However, as industrialisation caused the first consumer revolution, passive consumption of mass-produced objects became the norm. A contemporary response to this passive consumption can be found in an increasingly...

The Schilderswijk in The Hague is a so-called “power district”: a quarter where the ethnical diversity and the illiteracy rate is high, and the amount of youngsters with education and/or a job is low. The teenagers and young adults often lack a connection to their neighbourhood and the other inhabitants. Consequently, they feel misunderstood and...

Goal. The three-dimensional vestibulo-ocular reflex (3-D VOR) is responsible for the maintenance of stable vision through generating compensatory eye movements in response to head movements. The main functional components of the 3-D VOR are the semicircular canals. The anatomy of the three canals is complicated, requiring the definition of...

The protection of breakwater structures is in this research considered. The design of rubble mound concrete armour layers for breakwaters can be divided in a single layer system and a double layer system. The single layer system is nowadays mostly applied because of the high interlocking, high stability of the structure, reduction of concrete...

Adding emotion to motion, or creating emotionally meaningful movement is one of the next steps in robotics. Non-verbal communication between humans and robots has the potential to raise the current interaction level to a next stage. This study is a contribution to the field of emotion expression in robotics. Several parameters are known for...

In industrial environments robots are used for various tasks. At this moment it is not feasible for companies to deploy robots for productions with a limited batch size or for products with large variations. The use of robots for such environments can become feasible through a new generation of robots and software which can adapt quickly to new...

Social movements are important sociological phenomena because they are the key agents that provide societies with new ideas and ideals to change people's behavior or their understanding of the world. This thesis aims to investigate into how the collective identity of the biohacker in the Do-it-Yourself Biology (DIYbio) movement mobilizes...

The goal of this research project was to develop and test an online, automated taxi movement planning tool, that optimizes the timed taxiing routes of all aircraft on an airport, by minimizing the impact on the environment. Automatic taxi planning tools have been developed before, but the emissions have never been included before as a factor in...
