Robots play an increasingly large role in society and some material already exists that allows children to program robots in elementary school. However, this material often neglects the interactive capabilities of modern robots. The aim of this project is to teach children how to write interactive programs for a robot. For this purpose, a NAO...

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has 5 runways, each of which can be used for take-off or landing of aeroplanes. The weather heavily influences which runway configuration air traffic control might pick. Airport Forecasting Service (AFOS) predicts which configuration of runways works most efficiently given a set of expected weather conditions and the...

Accurate diagnosis and treatment of patients infected with multiple strains of a pathogen is a challenging task. The use of whole genome sequencing techniques provide high potential to give proper insight into the microbial composition of human metagenomic samples. Distinguishing multiple strains of a certain species is difficult due to the high...

We start our introduction to DNA matching with the direct match case: we find DNA at a crime scene and find a direct match with a member of our database. To measure the strength of our case against the match, we use likelihoodratios. We differentiate between two different situations: the probable cause case, where we already suspect our match and...

With the relocation of the industry in Rotterdam from the city centre to the sea, the old harbour area became empty. One of the buildings in this area is Santos, an old coffee warehouse that is located in Katendrecht. Due to the developments in this area, there is a need for a redevelopment for Santos as well. The shape of the waterfront is...

Brain cancer is a major health problem and currently used treatment methods are considered suboptimal. Micro-brachytherapy with radioactive Holmium-166 showed to be an effective palliative care method for primary and metastatic brain tumors and intratumoral administration with holmium microspheres (HoMS) showed very promising results with...

This thesis develops a continuous time framework to value deferred taxes using<br/>Black and Scholes (1973) type option pricing techniques. The valuation renders a<br/>market consistent pricing procedure, which avoids the necessity of subjective accounting principles. Our framework is flexible enough to value deferred taxes like carry forward,...

In 1942 cast glass columns weredesigned in the Danteum by GiuseppeTerragni. But due to the annealing timeof large glass pieces, these have neverbeen produced. Now, more than 75years later, a new type of cast glasscolumn will be designed. This time, thedesign is made out of interlocking drystacked cast glass components.Glass is a strong yet...

Although many studies have been performed on porous absorbable iron scaffolds created by the space holder method, no studies have considered the influence of variations in space holders on absorbable scaffolds. The present study aimed to clarify the effects of space holder particle size and volume fraction, on the pore structure, resultant...

Energy-based surgical instruments are increasingly used in laparoscopic surgical procedures. For example, the ultrasonic scalpel enables tissue coagulation and -cutting by transferring a mechanical vibration to the tissue. Additionally, real-time sensing is implemented to improve the surgical procedures. Intraoperative ultrasonography is one of...

One of the leading perspectives from literature is that decisions about investments should be made based on a comprehensive cost-benefit analysis and on a cyber-risk assessment. However, many organizations do not undertake this sophisticated analyses due to the lack of available data about costs, benefits and the impact and likelihood of attacks...

Interobserver reliability is a problem in behavioural studies. In order to increase the interobserver reliability, a formal checker is used to study behaviour. Together with a clear ethogram of basic behaviours, this tool can be used to automatically check for more complex behaviours and thus reducing the risk of biases introduced by human...

With the introduction of Automated Vehicles (AVs), new potential traffic situations could emerge on the roads. Although several studies on AVs have been conducted, most of these studies focus on the AV technology or on the driver, while there is less emphasis on how these AVs could interact and communicate with other road users. The interactions...

Multidisciplinary Design Analysis and Optimization (MDAO) promises major advances in aircraft design. However, judging from todays aircraft, MDAO is clearly not fully embraced by the industry yet. This is due to technical difficulties (coupling incompatible tools) and non-technical barriers (intellectual property).<br/><br/>Recent research, such...

Currently, the only effective treatment for end-stage liver diseases is liver transplantation. However, the waiting list with patients who are in need of a new liver is long, because too few good-quality donor livers are available. New techniques in the field of tissue engineering are being investigated to create a reconstructed liver, which...

To achieve significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in shipping and enable ship owners to phase out fossil fuels entirely, renewable fuels, such as ammonia, play a crucial role. Ammonia is considered a balanced solution in terms of volumetric energy density and renewable synthetic production cost compared to other renewable fuels....
