Publications

At TNO we disseminate knowledge that arises from scientific research and practical developments. We therefore spread our knowledge inside and outside TNO.
We publish in international and national journals, write books and book chapters and we give presentations at conferences and symposia in the Netherlands and abroad.

On this page you can find an overview of the most important publications regarding wearable robotics research.
