In November Peter Wennink, CEO of ASML, and Constantijn Van Oranje-Nassau were spotted on TU Delft Campus. What were they up to?
The research revolves around interaction between people and robots. Experiments will be conducted on-site at Skotel, the education-and research centre of the Hotelschool in Scheveningen.
Entertain yourself with this compilation of thought-provoking questions, sourced in London at the world's largest festival of philosophy and music. A heady report to open the innovative mind.
Here's a new vlog, by RoboHouse mainstay Luka Suurmond. She gets up-close. Does the robot do what it was designed for? See for yourself in Delft DEMO.
RoboHouse has partnered with the School of Journalism of Hogeschool Utrecht to establish The Unforeseen Effects Dossier, an investigative journalism practice that uncovers and documents the unintended consequences of robotics in the workplace.
Future of work fieldlab RoboHouse will take the lead in project ‘Werk Werkt!’, a collaboration between corporations, knowledge institutes and SMEs, with special emphasis on ship-building, manufacturing and medical technology.
A supermarket is typically a place where unexpected things happen all the time. Not only are there thousands of products with different shapes and looks, there are also people walking in and out. How could a shelf-stocking robot handle this?
A tight-knit duo from TU Delft's X!LEAD programme waves goodbye to RoboHouse, after a six month traineeship full of productive confrontation between visionary theory and practical reality. Here's our 5-question exit interview, with Maaz Khan and Giulia Bacchi.
A student team in RoboHouse has invented a robot that may enable more precise treatment of prostate cancer. The team collaborated with Martijn de Vries, a PhD researcher at TU Delft specialised in developing minimally invasive instruments for tumor treatment.
After two fully booked editions in July and September, Just us. is here to stay. Our new community event seems to strike a responsive chord. Casper van Eersel explains the enthusiasm for this low-key skills exchange at RoboHouse.
With robotics students ever more eager to engage in real-life workplace projects, September also marks the beginning of an era of even more space for talent in RoboHouse. The new EDUCATE wing just opened in our building. We spoke with the professor, community manager and TU Delft coordinator best placed to appreciate its value.
Student moonshot projects often punch far above their weight in terms of learning, productivity and motivation. What explains their unique educational impact? RoboCafé lines-up two heavyweights to bring you the inside story.
In February we asked ‘How can robotics help Rob, the gas leak detector?’, when announcing our collaboration with Alliander about cognitive robotics and worker wellbeing. Today, we are able to share some tentative insights.
Another RoboHouse community member strikes it big.
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.
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.
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.
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?
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.
In March, asparagus maker Teboza took a bold step. It put the Sparter on its fields; an asparagus harvesting robot, developed with agritech scale-up Cerescon.
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.
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.
