The growth of the cruise industry throughout recent years and the changing public opinion on cruise ships has led to increasing concerns regarding the impact cruise vessels have on the world’s climate and environ- ment. Cruise passengers prefer not to be related with heavy polluting vessels. In fact, trends like responsible tourism and...

Performance of set based fault detection is highly dependent on the complexity of the set bounding methods used to bound the healthy residual set. Existing methods achieve robust performance with complex set bounding that narrowly define healthy system behavior, yet at the cost of higher computation times. In this thesis a major improvement is...

Biologically plausible representations have been found to emerge in particular recurrent neural networks when training on path-integration [1, 2]. This report explores factors influencing the occurrence of entorhinal-like representations in recurrent neural networks. Reproducing simplified models from existing studies and created a hybrid model...

Photovoltaic systems play a crucial role in the shift from conventional energy sources to renewable energy alternatives . Considering the sudden boom in PV systems, several IT firms invested heavily in the creation of online PV system sizing tools for customers worldwide. This was done to ease the calculation process of sizing a Solar System....

Automated shipping is a technology which is highly anticipated by many actors in the inland shipping sector. Rijkswaterstaat, as the manager of the main inland waterways in the Netherlands, wants to be prepared for this technology. As the technology is still very immature, this research has attempted to reduce the amount of uncertainty in the...

Jumbo Maritime is a shipping company active in the heavy lifting market. Jumbo uses stabilisers to enlarge the stability of the ship during lifting. By using stabilisers Jumbo can perform heavy lifts with a relative small ship, this is one of the major advantages. Downside of using stabilisers is that the installation and de-installation is a...

With the rapid development of Quantum Computers (QC) and QC Simulators, there will be an increased demand for functioning Quantum Algorithms in the near future. Some of the most ubiquitously useful algorithms are solvers for linear systems of equations. Since the conception of the Quantum Linear Solver Algorithm (QLSA) by Harrow, Hassidim and...

In Chapter 1, the focus is on the classification of force generators, which is the family of mechanisms to which balancers belong to. The goal of this chapter is to introduce a bottom-up classification method to identify the complete solutions space of transmissions in force generators based on their transfer function. Using this method, spring...

All across the Netherlands more and more church buildings are abandoned as a consequence of secularisation, declining church attendance and ageing of the population of churchgoers. However, finding a new future for a church building is not as easy as it sounds, as it mostly result in protracted and complex processes in which involved...

The rapid growth of the internet has resulted in increased interconnectedness. Platforms such as Airbnb have been raising rapidly in the past century, as a result of an increased online demand for peer-to-peer market places, on which all kinds of private goods can be shared with peers. This is also referred to as the sharing or collaborative...

Mechanical dredging of a stiff clay results in clay lumps. Those clay lumps can be reused for the construction of land reclamation projects, and hereby economic and environmental value is generated. Placement of the clay lumps
in water result in a matrix of clay lumps and an interlump void space. The collapse of the interlump void space will...

Multi-step optimization of large composite structures involves formulating the stiffness distribution in terms of lamination parameters that provide a continuous design space, followed by a second optimization in the discrete design space to obtain equivalent stacking sequences. The retrieval of stacking sequences is often challenging as a...

This thesis discusses developments towards a low-cost Fourier Ptychographic microscope for label free imaging of malaria parasites.
A review of the morphology and life cycle of malaria and the main diagnostic methods for its detection is followed by an introduction to Fourier Ptychography with emphasis on the underlying imaging principles...

Our research focuses on speech detection from body movements using wearable accelerometer data collected in an in-the-wild mingling event. We aim to explore the nature of the connection between speech and body movements. More specifically, we stress on the person-specificity of speech. Many studies have shown that speech always comes along with...

Quantum error correction is needed for future quantum computers. Classical error correcting codes are not suitable for this due to the nature of quantum mechanics. Therefore, new codes need to be developed. A promising candidate is the toric code, a surface code, because of its locality and its high error correcting capability and thresholds ...

The inertial parameters of a vehicle, which include the mass, centre of gravity position and the moments of inertia, influences the dynamics of the vehicle. Currently, the modelling of the vehicle is done by assuming fixed, conservative, values for the inertial parameters. Knowing the exact values may increase the performance, safety and comfort...

PURPOSE. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate the possibility of implementing a prototype of a steerable needle in a medical procedure. Therefore the two main research questions are: “Can the intended user perform a steering motion with the steerable needle and reach the target area following a straight and curved trajectory?” and “Does...

Vehicle-to-grid (V2G) could turn an electric vehicle (EV) into a potential source of flexibility, in order to deal with the variability and uncertainty in electricity supply brought about by renewable energy sources and the load increase caused by the adoption of EVs. However, only a few studies have focussed on the complexity of EV drivers’...

Monitoring organisations are currently in a transition phase towards risk-based inspections using data models and algorithms in order to increase their efficiency and transparancy. The use of data by monitoring organisations has several benefits, but can at the same time have negative effects in the medium- to long-term. This study explores...
