Travelling to a black hole
Black holes are one of the most remarkable phenomena in the universe. But what do they look like? And how can you depict something like this? Researcher Annemieke Verbraeck is developing a new simulation based on the Hollywood film Interstellar.
The urban puzzle of where to put a million solar panels
A million solar panels on the rooftops of Amsterdam? How do you get that done? Researcher Maarten Verkou figured it out.
Increased road safety with high-resolution automotive radar
If it is up to Cicero Vaucher, cars will be transformed into robots with the capability of sensing the environment, thinking, and acting autonomously.
So much more than 3D visualisation
Elmar Eisemann and Ruben Wiersma tell about how mathematics and computer graphics will enhance our perception of art.
Understanding noise – from quantum fluctuations to climate models
Mark Veraar researches mathematical models to reduce the disruptive influence of noise on all kinds of processes.
Smart data collected from grandmother’s living room
Chatting with family via a hologram or selecting your own camera angles for your favourite club’s football match. Computer scientist Pablo Cesar is researching how we can make these kinds of applications possible.
Protecting the electricity grid of the future
Marjan Popov is looking for ways to make the electricity grid more robust in the future.
Intermittent computing to replace trillions of batteries
New system enables devices to keep time during intermittent power outages.
How smart sensors can prevent epilepsy
In Delft and Rotterdam, Wouter Serdijn and Christos Strydis are collaborating on a network of sensors and stimulators for the body.
A post-coronavirus society
Piet Van Mieghem usually researches all kinds of complex networks, like the internet or the brain. He now uses his knowledge as a weapon against COVID-19 and he is working on a exit-strategy.
A bit of math to constrain epidemics
Most people like to keep both mathematics and epidemics at a distance. But a little bit of the former can do wonders in limiting the latter. Supervised by professor Kees Vuik, two high school students modelled a recent outbreak of cholera in Ghana. He also has a bachelor student investigating the new corona virus.
We\Visit: combatting loneliness with video-calling
Visiting a loved one who’s critically ill: normally that’s possible, but due to the coronavirus, visiting ICUs is no longer permitted. The result is a lonely fight behind closed doors. In an attempt to combat the loneliness, researchers at Delft University of Technology have come up with We\Visit: a tool that facilitates video-calling by appointment. And it was developed at lightning speed after the Reinier de Graaf hospital sounded the alarm.
