The demand in global trade of goods is thriving in the recent post-COVID times and is forecast to increase to the highest levels of the past decade. This calls for global transportation companies to implement increasingly efficient and highly optimized transportation processes to fulfill both demand and their need for economic and environmental...

Since the conception of the euro, it has often been suggested that the eurozone start a programme of jointly issuing government debt. There are many arguments for these so-called Eurobonds, and temporary issuance of them has already taken place in response to the economic impact of the recent COVID-19 pandemic. However, a permanent Eurobond...

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...

It is difficult for people to find strategies that fit their needs for changing behaviors. This project investigates how individuals can be supported to reflect on their health behaviors through the use of technology. Through various research and design methods, the project provides a comprehensive overview of the literature on reflections, how...

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...

The applicability of the Sellmeijer design rule to Limburg dike sections near Well, Hout-Blerick, Buggenum, and Thorn was investigated in this thesis. This was accomplished by building a finite element numerical model, in COMSOL Multiphysics, to assess the piping in the hydrogeological systems of the research locations. The proposed model is...

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...

The first aim of this master thesis is to explore whether the normal force on the castor wheels can be estimated from IMU data using a machine learning approach. The second aim is to evaluate whether incorporating the changing load distribution due to trunk movement could improve the friction power estimation compared with neglecting changes in...

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)...

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...

New studies state that climate change is projected to harm snow reliability in ski resorts, resulting in shorter ski seasons, increased snowmaking demand and low-lying ski areas may cease to exist. Open Wear is a sustainable outerwear brand that uses sustainable materials and ethical production to produce clothing from 100% recycled plastic. The...

Aerial platforms designed for water jet placement are gaining interest in the areas of fire-fighting, washing, and irrigation. A novel, lightweight, and simplistic design is proposed that reduces the number of actuators and limits ineffective water discharge. External camera feedback was used for position control as a first step towards...

This thesis serves as an attempt to establish the initial empirical linkage between environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and startup valuation by venture capitalists. While substantial academic work has addressed the ESG topic and how firms’ ESG characteristics impact their financial performance and valuations, relatively little...

Distal cement plug removal in total hip arthroplasty revision is a time-consuming and technically challenging procedure. There is a risk of perforating the femur while drilling in the cement plug. This risk increases when the orientation of the prosthesis tip is excentric. The aim of this study was to design a reusable drill guide that...
