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...

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...

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...

Launch costs for high-resolution space telescopes for Earth observation can be reduced when the telescope mirrors are made deployable. However, such a system is subject to optical aberrations that decreases image quality. To counter these aberrations, an Aberration Correction System (ACS) is proposed that uses a deformable mirror (DM) which is...

In the modeling of fractured reservoirs, the spatial representation plays an important role to enclose the heterogeneities present in the subsurface. The reservoir flow response obtained from simulation in time is determined by the type of method and by the scale of the representation (fine or coarse). As a deterministic model cannot capture the...

According to its creators, ICN is designed to fit the way we use the internet better than IP currently does.
The use of named data and distributed network layer caching may provide a more efficient utilization of
network resources due to the stateful forwarding plane which allows data to be retrieved from caches
close by the...

A complex marine project consist of series of operations, with each operation subject to a predefined operational limit and duration, depending on the equipment being used. If actual weather conditions exceed the operational limit, then the operation cannot be executed and hence downtime occurs. It is up to contractors, such as Boskalis, to...

Port planning is a complex multidisciplinary subject. To fulfill its functions, it is essential that the different elements of a port work together. The full potential of a terminal can only be reached when the wet infrastructure of a port (access channel, inner basins, turning circles) can keep up with the traffic load. From the literature...

In this thesis diffuser performance will be simulated with computational fluid dynamics, which will be done with the program Ansys Fluent. The expanding geometry creates an adverse pressure gradient and under certain conditions there will also be separation.

At first a relative simple simulation will be done of a one-directional...

Majorana zero modes have been proposed as building blocks of intrinsically fault-tolerant quantum computers. Currently, externally applied magnetic fields are necessary to induce Majorana zero modes in carefully engineered systems. Topological qubit state readout is realized by parity sensing of Majorana islands. However, fast and high fidelity...

To compensate the heaving motion of a payload during deep water offshore installations, hanging from an on-board crane on a monohull vessel, a new concept is being investigated. By actively rolling the vessel using ballasting systems, the coupled heave motion of the crane tip can be reduced significantly. This is investigated by building a...

Climate change without adequate countermeasures has become one of humanity's greatest threat. Energy production by means of renewable energy sources is therefore one of the crucial measures that will play a paramount role in reducing the pollutant emissions of fossil fuel dependency. Small islands in particular are an exemplary case of the...
