A haptic interface designed for a self-driving car. Stewart II enables a haptic dialogue between car and driver, providing the driver with high-level control over the autonomous vehicle. The prototype is fully interactive and is being used for user research and testing in a simulator study. The final objective is to design a haptic language that enables intuitive communication between man and machine for a satisfying driving experience.
The Bio Inspired Micro Gravity Exercise Concept is a workout machine designed to offset the osteoporosis, muscular atrophy and psychological issues associated with long term space travel. Bimgec emulates weight in zero gravity for weight training and aerobic workouts. It incorporates a unique eccentric bias system to increase the effective load during the eccentric phase of a rep. Bimgec was designed for an open call for technologies by NASA for use in their Orion capsule for future manned interplanetary missions, which it won.
The Workstation is totally redesigned compound machine tool, which is destined for drivers brake valves checking. The Workstation includes following parts: workplace, EPDB stand, part for reservoirs with compressed air, part for brake valve controller, command circuit interrupter, manual control valve and connecting modules. The device was designed taking into account all the ergonomic requirements and has many advantages. The design was logically structured according to the work process, aesthetic principles and ergonomics to reach harmony and unity of every detail and the whole composition.
The NiceDice-System is the first multifunctional adapter in the camera industry. It makes it quite enjoyable to attach equipment with different mounting standards from different Brands – such as lights, monitors, microphones and transmitters - to ones camera in exactly the way they are needed to be according to the situation. Even new developing mounting standards or newly bought equipments can be easily integrated in the ND-System, just by getting a new Adapter.
A class of facade cleaning robot, Mantis is made of three identical modules and a caterpillar-inspired linear actuator bar system. With the linear actuators, each of the impeller modules can be lifted off the facade, allowing Mantis to cross over obstacles on vertical facades with ease. Each module is also equipped with a passive rotary system which allows it to rotate independently from others, enabling Mantis to traverse the facade. Mantis is also equipped with onboard sensors enabling the creation of real-time maps of the operating environment, health monitoring, and optimal cleaning paths.
The Charity Water remote well sensor measures the flow of clean water, and records and reports how efficiently wells are working at any given time. Wells containing this sensor are being installed all over the world, bringing clean water to communities who otherwise would not have clean water to use or drink. This remote well sensor keeps donors and water committees informed in real time about well function, ensuring the delivery of clean water to their communities.
