Testbed for sensors

to test acceleration sensors used in wind turbines

Problem: The amount of vibration at which a (mechanical) wind turbine imbalance sensor tripped was unknown.
Solution: Prototype of a lineair slider where the sensor could be placed on.
Result: A complete understanding of how the mechanical imbalance sensor worked, and at which amount of imbalance it would trip.

Development of a Game Arcade

Control of a cable driven manipulator

Problem: Operators of the hunting simulator had issues with positioning the meat in the lion cage.
Solution: Providing haptic assitance to the operators joystick, allowing the operator to feel when the control system started overiding the operators input to avoid a collision with the wall.
Result: The collision ratio was significantly decreased, while the average velocity was increased.
