Contactless interaction between human and robot

In traffic, in the supermarket or in the factory: in the near future, robots will no longer be standalone machines, but systems that operate and make decisions within the same environment as people. This is placing different demands on the design and development of such robots.

Tasty vegetables from a smart green house

A smart greenhouse that calculates when vegetables need water and more heat. That’s what professor Tamás Keviczky from TU Delft’s 3mE faculty is working on. This approach cuts costs and is good for the environment.

Robots and humans will learn to understand each other

The smarter robots become, the more we will encounter them – at home, in the streets, in shops and in the workplace – and the more they will interact directly with humans. So robots must get wise to human behaviour, says David Abbink.

Self-driving cars begin to understand road users’ behaviour

Drive around a busy Dutch city centre one day and observe everything that happens around you. As a driver, you have to constantly make choices. Does the pedestrian, who is suddenly crossing the road, see you? Will that van give you right of way? What is the mother with a child on the back of her bike planning to do?

New, biology inspired robot brain

Biology is an inexhaustible source of inspiration for robotics. Whether it involves walking, grabbing, flying or swimming, robotics looks with amazement and interest at the rich variety of solutions that evolution has developed.

Underwater robots: no one can help them down there

Robots can perform jobs underwater that are too complex or dangerous for humans. That is, if they can manage on their own. The REMARO project works with PhD students to make marine robotics more reliable.

Obstacles may cause less problems for smart robots

Robots that safely navigate busy corridors to deliver medicines to nurses. And drones that manoeuvre around people, rubbish bins and poles without smashing things up. This is possible thanks to the models developed by researcher Javier Alonso-Mora from TU Delft.

Is their code on Mars?

On 19 April 2021 NASA’s Ingenuity helicopter photographed its own shadow, while hovering over the Martian surface. Ten days later two RoboHouse engineers received a badge: “Your code was used for the Mars helicopter!" How great things consist of small contributions in the field of robotics.

Moon exploration rovers from Lunar Zebro. What if you would use this?

Lunar Zebro is an ambitious project to send cheap rovers to the moon. It could democratise space exploration. But suppose we sent these sturdy little robots into the world of interior decoration?

Robots flying a kite to generate electricity. What if you would use this?

Remember flying a kite as a child? You had to muster all your strength to keep it from flying away. Professor Roland Schmehl and his team use this force and harvest electricity from it. But what would happen if we put this invention in the hands of a kindergarten teacher?

A robotic ball with playful intentions. What if you would use this?

TU Delft researchers have designed a robotic ball that ball that rolls around by itself, inviting young children to explore and get active. Right now this autonomous ball is optimised for play, but we know that inventions are often used in unexpected ways. So we ask brasserie chef Lisan Peddemors the question: What if you would use this?

Swarms of Tiny Flying Robots. What if you would use this?

Researchers at MAVLab are developing swarms of tiny drones for exploring and mapping dangerous places. But history shows that new technology is often used in unexpected ways. So in this series of articles, we take early-stage robotics from the research lab and bring it to a randomly selected workplace in the outside world.
