Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) algorithms provide accurate localization for autonomous vehicles and provide essential information for the path planning module. However, SLAM algorithms as- sume a static environment in order to estimate a location. This assumption influences the pose estimation in dynamic urban environments. The...

The Levelized Cost of Electricity (LCoE) produced by PV systems is determined by yield (kWh) and cost of the system. Reducing the LCoE of the solar power can be achieved either by increasing the yield or by reducing the cost. The yield of bi-facial PV systems is promoted by high efficiency and a high bi-faciality factor.

Yield due to...

Datacenter infrastructure has become vital for stakeholders across industry, academia and government. To operate efficiently, datacenter operators rely on a variety of complex scheduling techniques, to distribute user workloads across resources. In this work, we leverage a reference architecture for datacenter scheduling to design and implement...

Micro-Doppler patterns of multi-propeller drones measured by radar systems are widely used in the classification of different drones, since the micro-Doppler patterns illustrate the velocity and motion properties of the drones. However, on this topic, there are a few issues the current researches have not tackled yet, and these will be discussed...

Due to connectivity problems, the attractiveness of public transport is limited. Policymakers aim to increase the modal share of public transport to protect the accessibility, livability, safety, sustainability and efficiency in the cities of the future. Applying Autonomous Mobility on-Demand (AMoD) systems as a feeder service for public...

The research field of geometry processing is concerned with the representation, analysis, modeling, simulation and optimization of geometric data. In this thesis, we introduce novel techniques and efficient algorithms for problems in geometry processing, such as the modeling and simulation of elastic deformable objects, the design of tangential...

This paper proposes a real-time decision support tool based on the rolling-horizon principle that manages staff activities (relocations and maintenance) of a one-way carsharing system and considers carpooling the staff in the relocated carsharing vehicles for extra cost reduction. The decision support tool is composed of three elements: a...

Optimization-based motion cueing algorithms based on model predictive control have been recently implemented to reproduce the motion of a car within the limited workspace of a driving simulator. These algorithms require a reference of the future vehicle motion to compute a prediction of the system response. Assumptions regarding the future...

Tourism is a fast-growing key industry, which provides an economic rationale for governments to stim- ulate it. The more it grows, the higher the negative environmental effects and the more the use of space, resources, pollution and travel. Sustainable tourism aims to strike a balance between the environmental, economic and social effects of...

Modern societies rely on mass mobility, in particular by private car. Car numbers are growing worldwide due to economic and other factors. Nearly all have engines that run on fossil fuels. Use of fossil fuels contributes to climate change (via CO2-emissions) and local air pollution (primary NOx- and PM10-emissions). Both have profound...

Purpose of the study: Pleural diseases are common in clinical practice. Doctors in training often encounter these patients and are expected to perform diagnostic and therapeutic pleural procedures with confidence and safely. However, pleural procedures can be associated with significant complications, especially when performed by less...

We use simulations to optimize perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells in a novel three-terminal configuration, with one terminal at the front and two at the rear. We consider configurations in which the top cell has either the inverted or the same polarity as the bottom cell. Our goal is to minimize the optical losses, to compare the...

Co-simulation has become increasingly popular as a tool for dealing with the unprecedented complexity of modern engineering systems, such as electrical power systems and the AC circuits that compose them. Co-simulation is useful when migrating the models of each subsystem to a single monolithic simulator is either impractical or impossible,...

The expansion of offshore power transmission and generation in the North Seas of Europe is accelerating rapidly. This is due to several drivers, including the decarbonization and reform of the European power system, and innovations in offshore wind and high-voltage direct current transmission. So far, this European North Seas offshore grid is...

Range verification based on prompt gamma detection is an important step to improve dose control for proton therapy. To deduce the proton range from the detected prompt gamma emission, a prediction of the measured profile is required. This study introduces the Boltzmann solver as a faster alternative to the Monte Carlo simulations to produce dose...

As the margins for improvements in the current freight transport system become limited, researchers address more and more the importance of collaboration between the actors which is crucial for the implementation of new, more efficient transport concepts as synchromodality. In addition, rail is concerned as a sustainable mode of transport that...

MapReduce ecosystems are (still) widely popular for big data processing in data centers. To address the diverse non-functional requirements arising from many and increasingly more sophisticated users, the community has developed many scheduling policies for MapReduce workloads. Although some individual policies can dynamically optimize for...

An estimated 9 million infants are born prematurely each year in south Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, and the leading cause of death in preterms is respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is a popular treatment for RDS and has been proven to be safe, feasible, and effective for use in low- and middle-income...

In this study, a pressure filtration model for a slurry of milk fat crystal aggregates is developed, validated and used to investigate the effect of pressure-time profiles. The model focuses on the expression step and describes oil flow locally. The filter cake is modelled as a double porous non-linear elastic medium with permeabilities...
