Bastiaan Petermeijer completed his Master thesis with the Delft Haptics Lab in March 2014 (cum laude) on the comparison of haptic continuous and bandwidth feedback in a lane keeping task. His thesis resulted in a well received journal publication (winner of the 2014 Human Factors Prize) “Should Drivers Be Operating Within an Automation-Free Bandwidth? Evaluating Haptic Steering Support Systems With Different Levels of Authority” (link).
He completed his PhD at the Technical University Munich of Department of Ergonomics within the Marie Curie project – Human Factors in Highly Automated Driving (HF-Auto). During his PhD. he developed and evaluated a vibrotactile seat to support the driver during the take-over process.
June 2017 Bastiaan returned to the Delft Haptics Lab as a Post-Doctoral Researcher on the Symbiotic Driving Project. Within this project he will focus on the honest evaluation of adaptive shared controllers, using simulators and real vehicles. During the first stages of the project he will implement and evaluated the adaptive controllers that are developed in collaboration with Sarah Barendswaard and Sarvesh Kolekar using simulator studies. During the later stages his work will involve the implementation and evaluation of controllers in real vehicles on test tracks.
