Zoon, Job (author)
In the past few years, there has been much research in the field of Autonomous Vehicles (AV). If AVs are implemented in our daily lives, this could have many advantages. Before this can happen, safe driver models need to be designed which control the AVs. One technique that is suitable to create these models is Reinforcement Learning (RL). A...

The establishment of areas for safe automated driving in mixed-traffic settings is one major barrier in the development and adoption of Autonomous Vehicles (AVs). This work investigates safety in the interactions between AVs, human-driven vehicles, and vulnerable road users such as cyclists and pedestrians in a simulated urban environment in the...

In a future where most of our transit system consists of autonomous vehicle, the question is raised how we as humans interact and communicate with them, and they with us. This project explores these interactions in the current time to uncover how humans interact and negotiate in traffic. More specifically how pedestrians do so. From the analysis...

The advent of a society in which autonomous technology coexists with humans is an inevitability. The project focuses on one such autonomous technology in the form of autonomous vehicles or self driving cars. The benefits of such automation is well documented in academia and is supported by the investment by some of the biggest automobile and...

Out of all the countries in the world, the Netherlands has the most ‘autonomous vehicle’-ready road network (KPMG, 2019). It is the result of years of investing in state-of-the-art technologies and putting in place the needed policies, and it seems to pay off: our country is likely to be amongst the early adapters as soon as these vehicles enter...

Last decades the autonomous driving research field has shown exponential growth. The social benefits, which include increased safety, mobility and productivity, are the main factor that drive this growth. One of the most difficult problems that vehicle engineers must solve to develop autonomous vehicles is the motion planning problem. They must...

Autonomous vehicles have the potential to introduce numerous changes, opportunities, and innovations in mobility services, environment, data, value networks, and economy, among others. These automated vehicles are expected to impulse a disruptive change in society, especially within transport technology economics, travel behavior, and network...

Autonomous vehicles have advanced rapidly in the last decades. The automotive industry is making valiant efforts to strengthen autonomous vehicle technologies and improve overall road safety. Besides actual safety, feeling safe is equally important. In other words, there is also a socio-technical perspective of self-driving vehicles that should...

Traffic is a self-organising, regulated system, but there are several ambiguous situations where no rules apply. In such situations, communication is important in order to achieve a smooth traffic flow and a safe situation. However, in the majority of traffic conflicts, adequate coordination between road users is lacking. Communication is...

In modern society cars are one of the most important means of transportation. Unfortunately, many people die in car accidents around the world. Research shows that the number of fatal casualties in car accidents has been increasing for the past decade and that the largest cause of these accidents is the human driver. For this reason, research on...

This thesis provides a theoretical framework for the arise of stop-and-go waves in platoons of Human-driven Vehicles (HVs) on a ring road topology. Possibilities and limitations for traffic control and suppression of such waves via a single Autonomous Vehicle (AV) are considered. Being HVs prone to show string instability, i.e. a type of...

Changing mobility Mobility is one of the fundamentals of our society and for the first time since the introduction of the automobile in the 1900s, we face a disruptive change in our mobility ecosystem. The rise of autonomous technology will allow us to get from a to b while being able to do other activities on the go. Challenges in change...

Autonomous driving is a development that has gained a lot of attention lately, because it can lead to major improvements in the mobility sector. One example of a research project that aims to develop vehicles that are capable of reaching the highest level of autonomy in driving, is the WEpods project. The goal of this research is in line with...

A transition to V2G is hampered by many barriers, such as battery degradation and high investment cost. A dramatic shift towards autonomous vehicles (AVs) in the future transport system drastically changes the conditions for a transition to V2G, potentially resulting in a more flexible V2G system that efficiently deals with bidirectional flows...

This Master thesis is written to finish the Master program Strategic Product Design in collaboration with ARS Traffic and Transport Technology (ARS T&TT). The main objective is to create a product and marketing strategy for the data warehouse department of ARS T&TT. The design process the project went through is the fuzzy front end shown...

The pedestrian is regarded to be one of the most vulnerable road users. Non-verbal communication between drivers and pedestrians seems to play an important role in the mitigation of collisions. The emergence of autonomous vehicles in traffic in the near future presses the need to investigate objective measures related to pedestrian crossing...

This MSc. thesis explores the design and implementation of a motion planner for non-holonomic autonomous vehicles in parking spaces. The planner must avoid collisions with static obstacles, satisfy performance, comfort and safety constraints for the motion, satisfy the non-holonomic constraints of the vehicle model, consider the dynamics of the...

Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) are increasingly being used for aerial transportation in remote and urban spaces where portability can be exploited to reach previously inaccessible and inhospitable spaces. Current approaches to MAV swung payload system path planning have primarily focused on pre-generating (agile) collision-free, or conservative...

Safe navigation in a cluttered environment is a key capability for the autonomous operation of Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs). This work explores a (deep) Reinforcement Learning (RL) based approach for monocular vision based obstacle avoidance and goal directed navigation for MAVs in cluttered environments. We investigated this problem in the...

From the environmental point of view, future mobility (positive) and the change in the hydrological system (negative) are taken as trends from which the urban program needs to develop. This research starts with the conception that the Strategy of te Two Networks (S2N) internalizes a method that could help face the given challenges occurring both...
