The effectiveness of exoskeletons could be enhanced by incorporating low back muscle fatigue estimates in their control. The aim of the present study was to evaluate whether low back muscle fatigue can be estimated using the spectral content of trunk extensor muscle high-density EMG (HDEMG) by considering the motor unit action potential...

Estimation of low-back load can be used to determine the assistance to be provided by an actuated back-support exoskeleton. To this end, an EMG-driven muscle model and a regression model can be implemented. The goal of the regression model is to reduce the number of required sensors for load estimation. Both models need to be calibrated. This...

In collaborative robotic applications, human and robot have to work together during a whole shift for executing a sequence of jobs. The performance of the human robot team can be enhanced by scheduling the right tasks to the human and the robot. The scheduling should consider the task execution constraints, the variability in the task execution...

In this review we address the human in human robot collaboration (HRC). Although there are different hypotheses on potential effects of HRC on job quality, defined as the quality of the working environment and its effect on the employee's well-being, a comprehensive theory is still lacking. How does HRC influence job quality on an individual...

In het Klimaatakkoord van 2019 werd elektrificatie benoemd als een belangrijke optie voor CO2-emissiereductie van de industrie in 2030. Op dat moment was nog niet voldoende duidelijk wat de implicaties zouden zijn voor de hernieuwbare energieproductie. Daarom is afgesproken dat in 2021 wordt bezien of opschaling van de ambitie voor de...

Neonatal bloodspot screening (NBS) aims to detect treatable disorders in newborns. The number of conditions included in the screening is expanding through technological and therapeutic developments, which can result in health gain for more newborns. NBS expansion, however, also poses healthcare, ethical and societal challenges. This qualitative...

The Dutch government, in alignment with the Paris climate agreement, has expressed the ambition to reduce CO2 emissions in the Netherlands by 49% in 2030 compared to 1990. As freight transport is recognized as a serious CO2 emitter, this sector is confronted with a substantial part of the target. For cities, the reduction of the urban freight...

In the Netherlands it is common to nourish the coastline with sand from the seabed. Foredunes are replenished with sand from the beach and can be transported further into the dune area.We investigated whether nourishment material alters the phosphorus (P) content of dune soil and the nitrogen (N):P ratio of dune vegetation in two areas: a mega...

Unintentional intake of allergens through food products poses a daily risk for allergic patients. Models estimating the risk of reactions mostly use intake data from general population surveys. Our study evaluates the comparability of food intake levels in the general population to those in the food allergic population. Data were collected by a...

Building a large-scale quantum computer requires the co-optimization of both the quantum bits (qubits) and their control electronics. By operating the CMOS control circuits at cryogenic temperatures (cryo-CMOS), and hence in close proximity to the cryogenic solid-state qubits, a compact quantumcomputing system can be achieved, thus promising...

There is a strong urge to replace conventional bunker fuels such as heavy fuel oil (HFO), marine diesel oil (MDO) and marine gas oil (MGO) by ‘fuels’ which do not give a net emission of greenhouse gasses or emit pollutants when combusted. Candidate fuels are methanol, dimethyl ether (DME), ammonia, pressurised hydrogen and liquefied hydrogen....

Back support exoskeletons are designed to prevent work-related low-back pain by reducing mechanical loading. For actuated exoskeletons, support based on moments actively produced by the trunk muscles appears a viable approach. The moment can be estimated by a biomechanical model. However, one of the main challenges here is the feasibility of...

Quantum computers (QC), comprising qubits and a classical controller, can provide exponential speed-up in solving certain problems. Among solid-state qubits, transmons and spin-qubits are the most promising, operating ≪ 1K. A qubit can be implemented in a physical system with two distinct energy levels representing the |0⟩ and |1⟩ states, e.g....

The most promising quantum algorithms require quantum processors hosting millions of quantum bits when targeting practical applications. A major challenge towards large-scale quantum computation is the interconnect complexity. In current solid-state qubit implementations, a major bottleneck appears between the quantum chip in a dilution...
