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.
