TU/e-DC1: Sustainable Control Solutions for Remote Interaction

Supervisors: Prof. Regina Bernhaupt (TU/e), and Prof. Laurene Vaughan (RMIT)

Project 1: Reinventing Remote Control

Investigate how control over remote distances can be re-invented. Sustainable technology solutions for controls are designed and developed in a data-driven approach (including AI/machine learning) and evaluated in a series of case studies with industrial partners. Adding a systemic change perspective these solutions make users care more about sustainability and other key societal development factors.

Project 2: Design for control to enhance society

Follow a data-driven design approach to find new interaction forms for remote control, that can lead to more sustainable behaviour in society overall. Goal of the project is to enrich design knowledge in the field and come up with a design framework for sustainable design solutions in the area of control. The design framework will be validated with a series of case studies together with the industrial partners, especially Ruwido.

Project 3: Evaluation Methods for (remote) Control Solutions

Investigate how remote control (control from a distance) can be re-designed and how to evaluate different control approaches in changing contexts (for example Automotive user interaction vs Control in the home environment). The candidate will develop methods or a combination of (data-driven) methods to investigate how such novel concepts of control can be evaluated with respect to systemic change factors like sustainability.
