During the fourth module of the Electrical Engineering Bachelor, the project contains designing and building an antenna which can work at 433 MHz. Of course you make a simple design which will always work, but we wanted more. We decided to make a helical antenna. Read more

Butterfly flexural pivot for delta-robot

Posted by daniel in the category Uncategorized

For the master course ‘design principles for precision mechanisms’, a flexural pivot was designed instead of a ball-joint because this has no friction and thus leads to a more predictable behavior. A prototype was made by printing the BFPs and gluing them together so the print… Read more

People who survived a stroke often suffer from disabilities caused by it.  At the department of Biomechanical Engineering on the university they are currently working on what is called… Read more

LED tiles for SSVEP experiments

Posted by emielch in the category Project

At HMI experiments are being done with brain computer interfaces. You probable have seen it before; people wearing head caps with many wires sticking out measuring various aspects of the subjects brain activity. One way to do experiments with this is to use Steady state visually evoked… Read more
