Dimensionality reduction algorithms transform high-dimensional datasets with many attributes per observation into lower-dimensional representations (called embeddings) such that the structure of the dataset is maintained as well as possible. In this research, the use of Virtual Reality (VR) to analyse these embeddings has been evaluated and...

On a regular basis doctors need to hold difficult conversations with patients. In shared decision making (SDM) conversations patients and doctors work together to get to a medical decision by talking about the patients preferences and values and the possible options and their respective risks and benefits. Good communication through the use of...

In the past 40 years, an incomprehensible 8,3 billion metric tons of plastic has been produced and is primarily being discarded and incinerated, instead of being recycled. Only 10 per cent of this total amount has been recycled to date, therefore it was decided to focus on recycling of plastic waste to reduce plastic pollution which negatively...

Embodied Conversational Agents (ECA) seek to provide a more natural means of interaction for a user through verbal and non-verbal properties of human face-to-face communication. For this reason, these systems are found to bring benefits in different mental health related interventions. However, a key challenge in developing agents to replace the...

Virtual Reality (VR) is a hot topic; some argue that VR causes a computing revolution as impactful as the smartphone. The infrastructure industry recently adopted VR as a tool in the stakeholder process. This thesis defines Virtual Reality as a three-dimensional virtual environment in which one can interact. VR is applied in several projects...

Virtual reality technology has captured the human imagination since before the first ceiling mounted glasses were invented in the 1960’s. Curiosity towards seeing what we can’t see and experiencing what we can’t experience, is one of the drivers behind societal and scientific progress.

In 2012, the technology saw a new phase of...

Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality have the potential to enhance the capabilities of the architect. This thesis explores the implications of the integration of these technologies intothe architectural design process. It provides a theoretical framework by discussing what VR & AR would mean to the architect’s workflow, and to his workspace...

The Rubber Hand Illusion is an illusion in which
visual cues of stimulation on a fake hand are combined with
synchronous tactile cues on a participant’s hand, which can
induce a sense of bodily ownership of the fake hand. This
technique does not facilitate synchronous movement of the
hands, and asynchronous stimulation or...

3D Digital Human Models (DHMs) provide industrial designers 3D and 4D information on the dimensions of the human body and its range of motion. Current models are based on outdated data from research on military populations making them unrepresentative for civilian populations. Available DHMs require experience to properly use them, are vague on...

This research project focuses on the impact of lacking spatial information in the execution phase of Dutch infrastructure projects. In this research project, spatial information is defined as a combination of geometric and geographic object related information. Three construction projects have been examined through case studies and depth...

The Noord/Zuidlijn is a new metro connection between the north, central and south of Amsterdam that will be in use from July 2018 onwards. The opening of this metro connection has many consequences for RAI Amsterdam since approximately 20.000 travelers will make use of the new metro station on a daily basis. A new metro station (called ...

Automated vehicles (AVs) are being developed by several companies and research groups worldwide. The implicit communication (e.g., eye contact) of the vehicle or driver seems to play an important role in the expected behaviour of vehicles. It is possible that vulnerable road users (VRUs) are less able to estimate the intention of vehicles (e.g.,...
