At present, many studies have begun to focus on evaluating urban accessibility and livability, which can be a series of great guidance for future urban planning considering residents’ personal perceptions of various living aspects. It can be observed from the existing literature that urban accessibility has a mature evaluation system,...

Solar sailing is a flight-proven low-thrust propulsion technology with strong potential for innovative scientific missions. The heliogyro is promising sailcraft design that utilizes a set of long slender blades which are deployed and flattened by spin-induced tension and whose orientations can be individually controlled. The main advantages of...

Charting hyperlocal wind using a drone is a challenge of increased attention as it unlocks potential in a variety of fields. In context of the METeo Sensors In the Sky project, this study proposes a method to estimate the magnitude and direction of wind using a quadcopter in hover and cruise without a dedicated wind sensor. Only on-board sensors...

Maintenance of complex machines or assemblies is an essential part of machine-building companies. Besides building and designing machines, they are responsible for replacing components and restoring the machines to maintain good operational conditions. An optimal maintenance plan ensures that customers spend less on maintenance and remain...

Modern vehicles have multiple different buses to communicate between components, like CAN (FD) and FlexRay. ZF builds ”innovation vehicles” with new components to showcase and test them. These components are connected to the automotive buses. ZF uses a web-based Human Machine Interface (HMI) to control and view the state of these parts. This HMI...

Control of a helicopter with a deployed dipping sound navigation and ranging (SONAR) is no trivial task due to the complex dynamics of the suspension cable. The cable can change shape, which influences the effect of water, wind and the motion of the helicopter itself. To control such a system, a control method is needed that can cope with these...

To improve the safety of commercial air transport, pilots are required to train on simulators to recognize the characteristics of an impeding stall and subsequently correctly recover from it. To prevent negative training, it is important that the accuracy of the used simulation models is high. A manner to model the nonlinear, unsteady...

Decentralised drone swarms need real time collision avoidance, thus requiring efficient, real time relative localisation. This paper explores different data inputs for vision based relative localisation. It introduces a novel dataset generated in <i>Blender</i>, providing ground truth optic flow and depth. Comparisons to <i>MPI Sintel</i>, an...

From the desire to reduce the impact of traveling on the environment and the increase in fuel prices over the past years, the propeller has regained interest as a propulsion mechanism in the aviation industry. Two main reasons can be found in their high propulsive efficiency and ability to combine with electric motors. The scaling of the motors...

Mangrove forests are important (sub)tropical intertidal ecosystems providing coastal protection and other ecosystem services like carbon storage and biodiversity. In view of the loss of these forests many rehabilitation projects have started, but unfortunately these efforts often fail. A main cause for coastal erosion is a disrupted (fine)...

The cover of a children's book could play a crucial role in attracting the attention of young readers and influencing their decision to pick up and read the book. In this study, we aim to identify the factors that contribute to the appeal of children's book covers. Given that the target audience for children's books changes as children grow...

Recently, a few children-centered recommendation systems have been created and evaluated. How- ever, these systems required user interaction to cre- ate ground truth to evaluate the result. This research aims to compare some of the traditional recommen- dation models and explore which trait could impact the recommendation process most for...

The media watermarking technique domain has had the last 30 years to develop itself. The non-media side, however, is a way newer sub-domain. [1] The data-gathering process for machine learning algorithms is a tedious and time consuming task. This becomes worse as the scale of these algorithms increases. Thus, protecting the datasets against...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a rapidly growing technology that connects millions of devices together. However, as more devices connect, the importance of ensuring security, privacy, and performance becomes paramount. Training performance is affected without proper protocols in place, and devices can get compromised. This research focuses on...

In this paper, we present a study to improve using neural networks for acoustic reflection localization. Our study focuses on the reimplementation of the proposed neural network model by Bologni et al. and investigates the effect of adding a third microphone to the microphone array. We reimplemented and trained the neural network using the same...

The placement of a subwoofer has significant impact on the quality of its sound reproduction. This paper present a method to optimise subwoofer placement in a room. Resonances caused by room boundaries (called "room modes") cause localised peaks and lows for specific lower frequencies. The goal is to minimize the simulated frequency response...

Decision tree learning is widely done heuristically, but advances in the field of optimal decision trees have made them a more prominent subject of research. However, current methods for optimal decision trees tend to overlook the metric of robustness. Our research wants to find out whether the robustness of optimal decision trees can be...

The Internet of Things (IoT) consists out of billions of devices. This vast size magnifies the security and efficiency challenges the IoT faces. Blockchain (BC) features like decentralisation, immutability and smart contracts can negate these IoT challenges. <br/>In this paper we discuss how BC based solutions can significantly increase the...

Quantum networks offer more capabilities than classical networks. For example, quantum networks can solve certain problems faster than classical networks and they can even solve problems which cannot be solved with classical networks. One well-known quantum network application is blind quantum computing (BQC). In a BQC application a client node...
