Abstract Although road-based freight transport has large external costs, it currently dominates the hinterland cargo transport sector in Europe. An increase of the automation levels of inland cargo vessels could advance their competitiveness, hence unlocking more sustainable inland cargo transport. Moreover, these improvements could pave the way for a potential future paradigm shift towards unmanned inland cargo vessels. Therefore, this study investigates the design of an experimental platform i...

The European Watertruck + project introduced a new fleet of self-propelled inland cargo barges to the European waters, in order to induce more sustainable freight transport in the European hinterland. An augmentation of the automation level of this fleet could further advance their competitiveness and potentially pave the way for unmanned inland cargo vessels. The motion control of such a vessel forms a key component in this envisaged automation chain and benefits from the knowledge of the capab...

The aim of gait rehabilitation is to achieve independent ambulation. Somatosensory augmentation with external haptic sources can improve the subject’s ability to walk or stand. This paper presents the development and evaluation of a robotic system prototype that delivers haptic forces to aid overground gait rehabilitation. This portable system is based on a compact, mobile robot that is equipped with force and LIDAR sensors. The robot is flexibly linked to the user, which allows the force intera...

In order to explore mobile applications of kinesthetic cues, we recently developed a system for generating kinesthetic cues on the user's back. Carrying on from that work, in this paper we present a completely redesigned system that utilizes a pair of reaction wheels to generate torques on the system which in-turn are perceived by the user as directed force cues being delivered to their back. It is a wearable device that wirelessly takes commands from a PC and can generate leftward and rightward...

The human core plays a key role in maintaining stability and allowing safe execution of movements. Stability of the core depends on the strength and control of its muscles. Hemiparesis due to stroke can compromise this control, thus reducing core stability of stroke survivors. Therefore, to allow stroke survivors to safely and independently perform activities of daily living, rehabilitation therapists focus on increasing their core stability. Core rehabilitation involves performing training exer...

Variations in biofeedback coding schemes for postural control, in recent research, have shown significant differences in performance outcomes due to variations in coding schemes. However, the application of vibrotactile biofeedback coding schemes to gait symmetry training is not well explored. In this paper, we devised various vibrotactile biofeedback modes and identified their efficacy during gait symmetry training of individuals suffering from hemiparesis due to stroke. These modes are compose...

This study discusses the experimental identification of the dynamic characteristics for an operational 1/25 scale model of the Watertruck+ self-propelling barge of CEMT class I. Parameters such as flow rate, acceleration, thrust and speed-dependent resistance forces in the longitudinal direction are determined. The operational scale model discussed in this paper includes a hull with length 1.54 m, width of 0.2 m and height of 0.2 m. All experiments are performed at an indoor pool to reduce envir...
