New approach to motion analysis useful for Parkinson's disease, aircraft engines and sport
Small motions are difficult to observe with the naked eye. A team of TU Delft researchers will present an improved method for achieving this at the CVPR conference in Honolulu, Hawaii on Saturday, 22 July. The technique has potential for use in analysing tremors in Parkinson's disease, for example.
Smart robotic support helps recovering patients to walk more naturally
Patients recovering from stroke or spinal cord injury demonstrate improved gait performance with a new and smart robotic support environment.
Graphene as a material for solar sails
A team of students, the GrapheneX-team, are preparing an experiment to test graphene in space-like zero-gravity, for potential future use as a light sail in space-craft propulsion.
Majorana-highway on a chip
The first experimental evidence of a Majorana fermion in Delft 2012 led to a wave of scientific enthusiasm: control such particles are a holy grail in quantum science and technology.
Master students of TU Delft design objects from a fictional future “a la Black Mirror”.
Reflecting on various, sometimes dark, future scenarios through technology. That was the assignment for students of the master course Interactive Technology Design (ITD) at the TU Delft faculty of Industrial Design Engineering. On Wednesday afternoon, 5 July, the results will be shown during the Interactive Technology Design (ITD) exhibition at the faculty.
From DELTA: The science of screeching tires
Fast curves and burning rubber. Master vehicle engineering student (Faculty of 3mE), Conno Kuyt, has developed the first step towards a computer controlled slip system inside cars.
Cheap, efficient and stable photoelectrode could improve water splitting with solar energy
Water splitting with solar energy could provide an efficient route for large scale renewable energy conversion and storage.
New space camera system with almost 1000 pixels now mature enough
Researchers from various institutions, including SRON and Delft University of Technology, have demonstrated that it is possible to make a highly sensitive space camera for far-infrared astronomy by using a special type of superconducting detector.
