Binnen de automobielindustrie wordt hard gewerkt aan verkeersveiligheidsystemen in de nieuwste modellen. Zo presenteert Mercedes Benz binnenkort een nieuwe klasse die al 36o graden 'om zich heen kan kijken'om gevaar en ongevallen te voorkomen. Belangrijke ontwikkelingen, maar de winst is toch vaak minder dan je zou hopen, relativeert Marika...

In the present study relations between the level of impulse sounds and the observed proportion of behaviorally confirmed awakening reactions were determined. The sounds (shooting sounds, bangs produced by door slamming or by container transshipment, aircraft landings) were presented by means of loudspeakers in the bedrooms of 50 volunteers. The...

Stimulation of the tactile sense or the hearing sense can be used to improve a person's health and well-being. For example, to make someone relax, feel better or sleep better. In this position paper, we present the concept of auditory-tactile stimulation for health and well-being. Through carefully selected audio-tactile stimuli a person's...

We describe and evaluate a new interface to induce positive emotions in users: a digital, interactive adaptive mirror. We study whether the induced affect is repeatable after a fixed interval (Study 1) and how copresence influences the emotion induction (Study 2). Results show that participants systematically feel more positive after an...

A case study is presented in which a socially capable robot played multiple activities during multiple sessions with hospitalised children. In this paper we show how an environment was created in which children engage with the robot and feel at liberty to express their preferences regarding which activities to play. Valuable lessons regarding...

Light sources that are optimized for mesopic vision contain a relatively high amount of bluish light (high S/P-ratio) and are therefore effective for peripheral visual tasks at mesopic light levels. Since the spectra of these light sources differ strongly from the common public lighting there were doubts on the performance of these light sources...

Purpose : According to international legislation pilothouse windows of inland vessels should have a minimum light transmission of 75%. The shipping sector is wondering whether this requirement can be reduced since a large portion of the fleet is equipped with green tinted windows panes with a lower light transmission. In this study, we answer...

Night vision equipment is crucial in order to accomplish supremacy and safety of the troops on the battlefield. Evidently, system integrators, MODs and end-users need access to reliable quantitative characterization of the expected field performance when using night vision equipment. The Image Intensifier tube is one of the most important...

While a BCI usually aims to provide an alternative communication channel for disabled users who have difficulties to move or to speak, we focused on BCIs as a way to retrieve and use information about an individual’s cognitive or affective state without requiring any effort or intention of the user to convey this information. Providing only an...

We investigated whether manipulation of visual and auditory depth and speed cues can affect a user’s sense of risk for a low-cost nonimmersive virtual environment (VE) representing a highway environment with traffic incidents. The VE is currently used in an examination program to assess procedural knowledge of highway patrol officers. In its...

This Deliverable details the agreed vehicle fleets and driver recruitment criteria. Across all VMCs, a wide range of vehicle types, engine types, and driver types is planned for the field trials. This will provide necessary data for SP4 and SP5 to investigate the effectiveness of the ecoDriver solutions and scaling up the impact of the ecoDriver...

Abstract—Treemaps are a well known and powerful space-filling visualisation method for displaying hierarchical data. Many alternative treemap algorithms have been proposed, often with the aim being to optimise performance across several criteria, including spatial stability to assist users in locating and monitoring items of interest. In this...
