Underwater robot does not need help on the ocean floor
Robots can perform jobs underwater that are too complex or dangerous for humans. That is, if they can manage on their own, because no one can help them down there. The REMARO project works on its control systems and trains PhD students in programming work.

A little walk can make ridesharing a lot more efficient
Ridesharing can benefit from using pick-up and drop-off points and asking users to walk a small distance. Researchers at TU Delft have analyzed this by using a real dataset of 10.000 Manhattan taxi trips. They have published their results online in Transportation Research Part C.

Self-driving cars can already do quite a bit, but driving as a human being requires something that algorithms cannot do very well: being insecure and careless. A new model that maps the mechanism behind human driving should change this.

Driving behaviour less ‘robotic’ thanks to new Delft model
Researchers from TU Delft have now developed a new model that describes driving behaviour on the basis of one underlying ‘human’ principle: managing the risk below a threshold level.
