The thesis clarifies the graduation project for the master program of Integrated Product Design at the Delft University of Technology. It describes an interconnection method to connect electronics onto the smart textiles that differs from any solutions existing in the market. Smart textiles are considered as the future of the clothes and are...

All ecosystem services of river are governed by flow regime. The different components of flow regime like topography, geology, and climatic variation contribute to different ecological processes. These ecosystems provide a wide range of direct and indirect benefits to a human being. The ecosystem services such as hydropower, irrigation, drinking...

Accurately forecasting charging demand is a major factor in energy providers’ ability to meet said demand. A number of methods have been proposed in the literature. This master thesis aims to provide a framework for energy providers to forecast charging demand due to increased EV adoption. Specifically, this research examines the effects that...

Automated vehicles with conditional driving automation (SAE level 3 (SAE, 2018)) will request the human driver to intervene when reaching its system boundaries by issuing a take-over request (TOR). This study is investigating whether a speech-based auditory take-over request is influencing the time it takes from automated to manual driving,...

Although the Dutch energy supply is gradually progressing from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources, the consequences for the grid are becoming increasingly evident. Meanwhile, the gas extraction from the Groningen natural gas reserve is de- clining as the induced earthquakes in the northern Netherlands persist. Hydrogen, as a flexible...

Reinforcement Learning (RL) methods have become a topic of interest for performing guidance and navigation tasks, due to potential adaptability and autonomy improvements within dynamic systems. Nevertheless, a core component of RL is an agent exploring the environment it finds itself in, resulting in an intrinsic violation of the agent's safety....

Currently between 30% till 50%, some even state up to 70%, of medical and laboratory equipment is reported as out of service, due to small or large technical failures or due to missing knowledge of how to use well-functioning equipment in Low-/ Middle- Income Countries (LMIC). This is not due to the complexity of the required repair, but due to,...

Introduction: Almost 57 percent of above elbow amputees stop using their prosthesis. One of the main factors of non-wear is the high weight. Pneumatic actuation can be more lightweight than electronic actuation, and might therefore help with reducing the mass of a prosthesis and...

The level-set (LS) method uses a signed-distance function to capture the interface in two-phase flows. Geometrical properties can be easily obtained, and merging and splitting of the interface are handled automatically by the LS method. However, it is not inherently volume conserving. Several methods found in literature that aim to solve this...

The Deployable Space Telescope (DST) is a telescope that uses foldable optical elements to reach state-of-the-art ground resolutions while minimising the launch volume and total mass of the system. One of the promising concepts that is part of the DST design is the Compliant Rolling-Element (CORE) Hinge. This hinge uses compliant links to let...

In this research project, the design of a smallsat mission to a Halo orbit around the Earth-Moon second libration point (EML-2) using a rideshare launch opportunity to an inclined geosynchronous transfer orbit (GTO) was investigated. <br/>The design leverages classical results from Dynamical Systems Theory (DST) to determine low-energy transfers...

The field of energy security is dominantly filled with concepts and frameworks built on the characteristics of traditional fossil fuel energy systems. Increasing penetration of renewable energy sources in the energy system brings about novel implications and challenges in the field of energy security. Hydrogen is an increasingly popular option...

Space has always been fascinating to humans, since the dawn of civilization. From the first astronomers and philosophers of ancient times, who looked at the night sky searching for answers, to the scientists and engineers of modern missions, commanding space probes to the edge of the solar system, space has always been at the epicenter of...

Transportation of slurries over a distance has always been one of the main objectives for the dredging industry. To accomplish a transport, centrifugal dredge pumps and mixture pipelines need to be perfectly intertwined. For the centrifugal dredge pump, available information is relatively scattered or confidential. The performance of a...

Although the pixel-wise labelling approaches have been exploited in depth and achieve good results in segmentation tasks, the grouped pixels are not ideal output for many end-users. In this paper, we propose a vertex-voting-based approach that can directly extract the polygon representations of objects. In order to better solve overlapping...

Embeddedreal-time systems that have cost or energy constraints are usually limited inprocessing power and memory. This limitation typically leads to applyingsimpler execution models such as non-preemptive scheduling. A problem with anon-preemptive real-time system is that finding a schedule without causingdeadline misses is...

In the Meuse seven weirs are located in the Dutch reaches, controlling the water level to enable inland navigation through the river. The weirs are being scheduled for replacement, where weir Grave is the first one in 2028. They are reaching their end-of-life time. One of the main issues that became of more importance in the recent years is ship...

Conventional dike reinforcement measures do not take vegetation into account, while vegetation contains wave damping properties. Reasoning for this is that vegetation in general is seen as temporary and hence may be removed in the future. In this case study for the Dutch waterboard WDOD, the wave damping properties of vegetation in a floodplain...

In regions which experience arctic conditions, structures like offshore wind turbines, oil-platforms, light houses, piers and bridges suffer from abrasion by moving ice sheets. This results in challenging maintenance and repair works. At the ice-structure interface, several mechanisms exist which are responsible for the wear of concrete such as:...
