Listening to music or talking on the phone while cycling as well as the growing number of quiet (electric) cars on the road can make the use of auditory cues challenging for cyclists. The present study examined to what extent and in which traffic situations traffic sounds are important for safe cycling. Furthermore, the study investigated the...

This booklet shows the results of a project developed at the TU Delft in a Master elective course offered by the chair of Landscape Architecture: Landscape Architecture ON site. The project revolves around the realization of a temporary, interactive ‘design-and-build’ project in a landscape setting, for the yearly Oerol festival held on the...

The graduation project, “East vs. West: Influence of Visual Cues of Packaging on Perceived Product Quality of Mayonnaise”, focuses on food product packaging, how they may be perceived differently across cultures and how they can be tailored to better suit specific cultures if necessary. The project looks into what aspects of food packaging makes...

Since the expiration of the FDM printing patent by Stratasys in 2009, Fused Deposition Modeling(FDM) printing has taken a large step towards accessible consumer 3D printing. Also, more knowledge is sought in the process of FDM printing and optimizing quality as the layer by layer deposition inevitable results in poor surface quality. This study...

The purpose of this empirical study is to gain insight in how Autonomous Weapons are perceived by the general public and the military and which moral values they consider important when Autonomous Weapons are deployed in the near future. The Value-Sensitive Design method is used to structure the study. This thesis proposes a design for a Moral...

In dit afstudeerproject wordt de architectuur benaderd als een proces.

Als onderdeel van de wereld.
Als iets dat in overgang is.
Aan constante verandering onderhevig.

Aan invloeden van buitenaf,
aan weer en wind,
aan de mens.

De mens die middels zijn handelen de wereld om hem heen vorm geeft....

The thesis, consisting of a design for a ceramics centre in Maastricht, deals with two main themes: the urban institution and the local use of natural stone. Architectural research focuses on (in)formality and visual perception of historical domestic façades in Maastricht featuring natural stone. The results of this study are used as a design...

The risk of being involved in an airplane accident is largely ignored in air passengers’ choice models. The reason presumably is that it is hard to operationalize, because objective safety indicators often involve extremely low probabilities that are hard to grasp and interpret by passengers. In this paper, we propose an operationalization...

The elevator diagram is a proposal concerned with the question of how to intervene in the contemporary city, with Luxembourg as an example. The proposal takes as a ground point the geography of the city, analyzing the dichotomy of the valley and the plateau as a particular characteristic, and intends to create an architectural interface capable...

Tactile perception is a complex system, which depends on frictional interactions between skin and counter-body. The contact mechanics of tactile friction is governed by many factors such as the state and properties of skin and counter-body. In order to discover the connection between perception and tactile friction on textured stainless steel...

Research has shown that staying indoors is not good for our health. People spend more and more of their time indoors. Therefore, providing a healthy and comfortable indoor environment is very important. The SenseLab will contribute to the understanding of and coping with the indoor environment. Students, teachers, researchers, but also the...

Understanding the process of human motion perception is essential for optimizing the motion cueing algorithms (MCAs) used by motion simulators. Previous research has shown that different motion cueing error types can be distinguished, at least some of which are rated differently by humans for equal error magnitude. Optimizing a motion simulation...

The material property of glossiness, which is attributed to many objects in our daily life, is physically independent of the objects' color. However, perceived glossiness can change with the contrast between the highlight and the area around the specular highlight. Hitherto, experiments mainly investigated gloss on unicolored surfaces. It is...

The plastic effect is historically used to denote various forms of stereopsis. The vivid impression of depth often associated with binocular stereopsis can also be achieved in other ways, for example, using a synopter. Accounts of this go back over a hundred years. These ways of viewing all aim to diminish sensorial evidence that the picture...

Manual control cybernetics aims to understand and describe how humans control vehicles and devices using mathematical models of human control dynamics. This “cybernetic approach” enables objective and quantitative comparisons of human behavior, and allows a systematic optimization of human control interfaces and training...

The extraction of natural gas in the north of The Netherlands has led to soil subsidence and the occurrence of earthquakes. Residents worry about the safety of their families and the saleability of their dwelling and might want to move. The goal is to examine whether the earthquakes are related to the intention to move. A survey among...

The authors wanted to prove that there is a large correlation between the concepts spatial openness and comfort (visual, wind speed and thermal) perception in people’s minds in a hot and humid climate in summer in order to be able to use spatial configuration parameters such as openness, connectivity and depth as a design tool for a comfortable...

Vestibular information from both sides of the head converges within the vestibular nuclei to contribute to postural stabilization of the head and body, and to provide accurate perceptions of self-motion. It remains uncertain whether these responses are evoked through equivalent integration processes, because our perception of head position is...

Studies on computer-based visual perception and aesthetical judgment for architectural design are presented. In the model, both color and the geometric aspects of human vision are jointly taken into account, quantifying the perception of an individual object, as well as a scene consisting of several objects. This is accomplished by fuzzy neural...
