Joost’s involvement with the Delft Haptics Lab is longstanding. He graduated on a MSc project on Haptic Gas Pedal Feedback, under the supervision of Mark Mulder, at the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering. He then pursued a PhD at Mechnical Engineering, which he received cum laude in 2009.
He furthered his career at the BioMechanical Engineering department, and joined the section of Human-Robot Interaction of the Cognitive Robotics department in November 2018. Joost and David supervise MSc students, PhD students, and collaborate on the question how to best support drivers with automation. They also give a special lecture together in Joost’s class WB2404 Man-Machine Systems.
An example output of the collaboration was the combined supervision of Bastiaan Petermeijer, who graduated cum laude on his MSc project that later won an international award.
