Cryogenic electron tomography (cryo-ET) is currently the golden standard for imaging cellular tissue at nanometer resolution. The current workflow from cultured cells to final image is however very time-consuming, labor-intensive, expensive, and has a low yield. Moreover, many of the steps in this workflow require practice. Even after practice,...

The work processes of structural engineers have been changing over the last decades. Digitalisation and automation play an important role in this change. One of the major developments in this context has been the introduction of Building Information Modelling (BIM). In a BIM model the geometry of the actual building is represented. To this...

Human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) offer the possibility to model human disease and study their behavior. They help scientists discover early disease-causing events in cells and are therefore used in discoveries about premature aging, congenital heart disease, cancer, and disorders connected to fetal development. Because of their...

Due to the Internet, and more importantly its interfaces we carry, we have gained freedom to do whatever, wherever, whenever. All the fields of interaction with the Internet are called the Interface in this research. The Interface automates human actions. In many aspects of life, automation by the Interface has an impact. In this research, it is...

Current yard crane models used for studies on various logistic processes in container terminals involving automated yard cranes do not take automation systems into account. The operational container handling performance of automated yard cranes are therefore inaccurately predicted by current models. To avoid logistical problems and financial...
