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...

The energy transition is characterised by the growth of intermittent and thus non-steerable energy sources such as solar photovoltaic and wind. The technology development in the PV sector enables consumers to move beyond passive consumption of electricity towards becoming active producers of their own energy. This led to an increasing number of...

This MSc. Thesis research attempts to research the spatial distribution of natural light as it interacts with the glass brick masonry façade, in terms of both its quantitative- and qualitative characteristics, with the aim of applying this material in the transformation of historic buildings. An elaborate research on the visual effects of light...

Companies implement technical security measures to let their employees behave in a secure manner. Employees however, can circumvent these measures. To solve this circumventing problem companies should know better what the preferences of their employees are. Employees’ preferences with regards to technical security measures are based on the...

It is estimated that approximately 320,000 people in the Netherlands are visually impaired, some of which also have other physical or mental disabilities. The combination of disabilities can have profound impact on a person’s daily life. One of the encountered difficulties is a disrupted time perception. With a visual impairment the sensory...

When driven at low speeds, cars operating in electric mode have been found to be quieter than conventional cars. As a result, the auditory cues which pedestrians and cyclists use to assess the presence, proximity and location oncoming traffic may be reduced, posing a safety hazard. This laboratory study examined auditory localisation of...

Perceptions of different environments are different for different people. An abstract designed environment, with a degree of freedom from any visual reference in the physical world requests a completely different perception than a fully or semi-designed environment that has some correlation with the physical world. Maximal evidence on the...

Due to the current policies from the European Union and Dutch government, LNG which used as fuel for heavy-duty vehicles is intensively increased. Consequently, the probabilities of accident during operations of LNG transportation are expected to increase. This thesis aims to study LNG hazards and assess the risks in LNG transportation chain. To...

This thesis constructs a theory of urban intervention based on banality, functionality and perception. It provides an example of The Hague Central Station, by placing a fresh, sharp, and plain volume in the existing, complicated, heterogeneous field, therefore forming an illogical, anti-functional demarcation and differentiation of the territory...

The role of safety is often not included in flight choice behaviour. The perception of safety however does influence the choice of flight. To that end the factors that influence the safety perception are identified and this safety perception is captured as a summarising variable in the flight choice model. From these models combined the...

Haptic technology is more and more widely used to improve human interaction with devices, for example in touch screens of smartphones that vibrate when touched. Another application is haptic-tele-manipulation where a human controls a slave manipulator (e.g. a surgical-robot) by using a master device (e.g. a joystick). In haptic-tele-manipulation...

In this master thesis a data based Product Service System is proposed, which will trigger and raise awareness regarding the unperceived environmental factors affecting our life quality and enable users to take action. The Atlas Network serves as a boundary object bridging the gap between our perception of environmental effects and their harmful...

This paper presents the design problem of furniture arrangement in a residential interior living space, and addresses it by means of evolutionary computation. Interior arrangement is an important and interesting problem that occurs commonly when designing living spaces. It entails determining the locations of interior elements such as tables,...

This paper aims to address higher education students' learning space preferences. The study is based on a survey that involved 697 business management students of a Dutch University of Applied Sciences. The research focuses on preferred learning spaces for individual study activities, which require concentration, and preferred learning spaces...

Comprehension of aesthetical color characteristics based on a computational model of visual perception and color cognition are presented. The computational comprehension is manifested by the machine’s capability of instantly assigning appropriate colors to the objects perceived. They form a scene with aesthetically pleasing characteristics. The...
