Article
Full-text available
Soft robots are typically intended to operate in highly unpredictable and unstructured environments. Although their soft bodies help them to passively conform to their environment, the execution of specific tasks within such environments often requires the help of an operator that supervises the interaction between the robot and its environment and...
Article
When designing large‐scale products, like airplanes, involving the opinions from end‐users, like passengers, in conceptualization is difficult. Including user evaluation at the early stage is of foremost importance to develop products or services that reach user satisfaction. Comfort‐related assessments are particularly difficult to implement with...

For designing large-scale products like an airplane, engaging end-users in the concept phase is difficult. However, early user evaluation is important to choose the path which fits the user’s needs best. In particular, comfort-related assessments are difficult to conduct with digital models that are shown on a desktop PC application. Digital Human...

Conference Paper
To support maintenance and servicing of industrial machines, service processes are even today often performed manually and analogously, although supportive technologies such as augmented reality, virtual reality and digital platforms already exist. In many cases, neither technicians on-site nor remote experts have all the essential information and...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The causes and treatment solutions of congenital heart defects are difficult to address and discuss between patient and doctor. This is mainly due to the complex spatial nature of congenital cardiac defects, which makes it difficult for the patients to envision the defect without prior anatomical knowledge and renders the comprehension largely depe...
