Amsterdam becomes living lab for new Master
This academic year Wageningen University & Research and TU Delft introduce a new two-year joint master’s program in the city of Amsterdam. The MSc in Metropolitan Analysis, Design and Engineering (MSc MADE) focuses on the metropolitan challenges of Amsterdam as a booming city, using the city of Amsterdam as a case study and a living lab.
Spectacular drone images thanks to algorithm
Drones can be used to achieve captivating camera angles, but shots of this kind are expensive and the creative possibilities are often limited. ETH Zurich and TU Delft have developed an algorithm that allows drones to implement the desired picture compositions independently. Earlier this week, the researchers presented their findings at the SIGGRAPH Conference in Los Angeles.
TU Delft students make world debut with hydrogen race car
Student team Forze Hydrogen Electric Racing has participated in a fossil fuelled competition during the Gamma Racing Days on the 6th of August 2017. The students competed with a zero emission hydrogen-electric car. The team has made the first step with hydrogen into the conventional racing world.
Improving understanding of the quantum world with quantum dots
Quantum behaviour plays a crucial role in novel and emergent material properties, such as superconductivity and magnetism.

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 researchers, the GrapheneX-team, is preparing an experiment to test graphene in space-like zero-gravity, for potential future use as a light sail in space-craft propulsion.
