These robots cannot manage without human intervention, however: behind every successful robot there’s a human being. A strong foundation for operating robot arms and robot vehicles is haptics: our innate ability to feel our body.

If only ships could talk
Worldwide demand for transport is increasing all the time. Although the port of Rotterdam is capable of handling the world’s largest container ships, processing the thousands of containers that they transport causes congestion on the water, roads and railways. But if ships and other transport systems exchange information with each other, the infrastructure can be used more efficiently and sustainably, argues Rudy Negenborn, Professor of Multi-Machine Operations & Logistics. He will give his inaugural address at TU Delft on 15 March 2019.
