Technology aimed at providing cognitive support to operators in the manufacturing industry, is developing rapidly. Through technologies such as near-eye displays and augmented and mixed reality, the operator receives digital information and instructions to help the operator learn, and work efficiently and accurately. Companies, especially SMEs,...

Positive effects of arm support exoskeletons in reducing the shoulder load, have been reported mainly from laboratory studies. However, for exoskeletons to provide worker support in practice, they need to be accepted as well. Therefore, it is necessary to obtain insight into the user experience and attitude towards exoskeleton use, in relevant...

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...

To evaluate the biomechanical effect of exoskeletons during lifting, three studies were performed to compare spine compression during lifting without and with three exoskeletons (Laevo, Robo-Mate, SPEXOR). In these studies, participants (11, 10 and 10, respectively) lifted boxes (10, 15 and 10 kg, respectively) from ankle height. Spine...

Nowadays, many cities are intending to reduce the use of private vehicles. Governments are incorporating new mobility services and are adapting their parking policies to promote a more sustainable mobility, as both strategies are believed to have the potential to reduce private vehicle use. To understand the effects of these strategies, one...

Mobility as a Service (MaaS) and new mobility concepts mutually inspire each other, provide alternatives for the private car-oriented transport system as we know it, and will offer more mobility choices in a single journey than ever. This multitude of mobility choices however poses challenges in modeling the travelers’ mode choices in travel...

Research finds that the global market value of cargo bikes will hit 2.4 billion euros by 2031. Analysts with Future Market Insights assessing the growth of cargo bikes have placed the parcel courier industry as a key buyer of electric cargo bikes, forecasting that 43 per cent of sales could go to this industry. This growth is driven by city...

The threat of attacks using chemical, biological, radiological, or nuclear means (CBRN) describe some of the most extreme possible events in a scenario of conflict. This chapter focuses on chemical (C) threats, where chemical agents are intended to cause a toxic effect on human organisms and where our definition of toxicity excludes those...

In 2020, the Dutch government published 1 500 000 synthetic CPT profiles for use in develop ment of the Hollandse Kust (west) Wind Farm Zone, offshore Netherlands. The scale of this approach was novel at that time and possibly first-ever. The synthetic CPT profiles were derived from a training data set of 122 actual CPTs and ultra-high...

Food allergy has been recognized already in early history as a condition triggered in some individuals upon consumptions of specific foods. However, its recognition as an essential element to be addressed in food safety management is of much more recent date. As a consequence, risk assessment and risk management practices for food allergy are...

How can we observe how people respond to consequential errors by an artificial agent in a realistic yet highly controllable environment? We created a threat-detection house-search task in virtual reality in which participants form a Human-Agent Team (HAT) with an autonomous drone. By simulating risk, we amplify the feeling of reliance and the...

Der Anstieg der Opfererfahrungen durch Internetkriminalität unterstreicht die Notwendigkeit zu verstehen, wie sich Menschen online verhalten und wie unsicheres Online-Verhalten mit Viktimisierung zusammenhängen kann. Bisherige Studien haben sich oft auf selbstberichtete Verhaltensweisen oder Einstellungen zu vorsichtigem Online-Verhalten...

Impact assessments have long been used for policy evaluation as well as for assessing (emerging) technologies. Within the field of Digital Governance, impact assessments are often used to analyze policy implications or to assess the impact of technologies such as big data and artificial intelligence on public services. Furthermore, within this...

Learning Communities hebben als doel om bij te dragen aan oplossingen voor grote maatschappelijke vraagstukken. Om dit doel te bereiken dienen er ook opbrengsten te worden gerealiseerd op onderliggende niveaus, zoals opbrengsten voor organisaties en individuen. Kortom, er is sprake van een gelaagdheid aan opbrengsten. Om deze gelaagdheid aan...
