Jacco Vos joined the Haptics Lab in May 2017, and performed his literature study on mutual adaptation of humans and support systems, one of the underlying goals of the VIDI project on Symbiotic Driving.
Jacco worked on the first real-time mutual adaptation for haptic shared control. Based on state-of-the-art time-variant identification techniques developed by Daan Pool (one of our colleagues from Aerospace Engineering), he developed a method to estimate in real time the compensatory control behaviour of a human operator. This allowed the design of a haptic shared controller, that could adapt in real-time to individual control activity. In a human-factors experiment he evaluated this design.
Jacco graduated cum laude in April 2018.
