Delft Haptics Lab

Delft University of Technology

Ir. Timo Melman

I joined the lab in February 2015, after returning from a challenging internship at Entropy Control (the company of visiting professor Dr. Erwin Boer), in San Diego (USA).

Since then I have worked for 3 years as first MSc student and afterwards as research engineer on the design of a novel shared controller that takes driver adaptations into account. I have always been interested in the human aspect of designing new controllers. In my studies I often show that negative driver adaptations (unsafe adaptations of the driver) can be mitigated by taking this into account in the system design.

Since January 2018 I officially started working as PhD in collaboration with Groupe Renault. In my PhD I will use my experience with driver adaptation to develop a new chassis controller (See Multi-Sense system) that adapt its settings to the individual driver. If you are interested in what I do, just walk by the Hapticslab!.
