When driving in urban environments, an autonomous vehicle must account for the interaction with other traffic participants. It must reason about their future behavior, how its actions affect their future behavior, and potentially
consider multiple motion hypothesis. In this paper we introduce a method for joint behavior estimation and...

Due to the increasing ship traffic flow in ports, maritime traffic safety has attracted much atten-tion. In addition to traffic flow, the ship safety in restricted waters is influenced by external navigational fac-tors (visibility, wind and current), encounter situations and human factors on board. In this paper, we investi-gate the effect of...

In VHR(very high resolution) aerial images, shadows indicating height information are valuable for validating or detecting changes on an existing 3D city model. In the paper, we propose a novel and full automatic approach for shadow detection from VHR images. Instead of automatic thresholding, the supervised machine learning approach is...

In this paper, an adaptive control scheme for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) path following under slowly time-varying wind is developed. The proposed control strategy integrates the path following law based on the vector field method with an adaptive term counteracting the effect of wind's unknown component. In particular, it is shown that...

A neutron imaging detector based on neutron-sensitive microchannel plates (mcps) was constructed and tested at beamlines of thermal and cold neutrons. The mcps are made of a glass mixture containing 10B and natural Gd, which makes the bulk of the mcp an efficient neutron converter. Contrary to the neutron-sensitive scintillator screens normally...

Low Temperature Asphalt (LTA) technologies are utilized in asphalt pavement industry to lower energy demands and greenhouse gas emission during mixing and construction processes. Although these technologies are currently available and hope to demonstrate similar performance with Hot Mix Asphalt (HMA) mixes, LTA shows more sensitive than HMA to...

Hydrate slurry has been reported to be a suitable secondary fluid for refrigeration and air-conditioning systems. The latent heat of CO2 hydrate is 387 kJ/kg under phase equilibrium condition of 7 °C and 30 bar. The utilization of CO2 hydrate slurry in air-conditioning systems is promising in improving the energy efficiency and shifting energy...

Flapping-wing MAVs represent an attractive alternative to conventional designs with rotary wings, since they promise a much higher efficiency in forward flight. However, further insight into the flapping-wing aerodynamics is still needed to get closer to the flight performance observed in natural fliers. Here we present the first step necessary...

Within this research-driven project, passive WiFi monitoring of WiFi enabled devices was used to detect users (students, employees, visitors) of buildings at the campus of Delft University of Technology to gain insight into the Rhythm of the Campus: the occupation, duration of stay and moving pattern at and between the different facilities ...

Important engineered slopes are often heavily instrumented and their performance routinely monitored through these instruments. The evaluation of the safety of the slopes based on the monitored information is however a challenge. A systematic method is presented in this paper for evaluating the slope safety by combining multi-source monitoring...

We report a high-resolution numerical study of small-scale properties of two-dimensional (2D) miscible Rayleigh-Taylor (RT) incompressible turbulence with the Boussinesq approximation at small Atwood number and unit Prandtl number. Our results show that the buoyancy force balances the inertial force at all scales below the integral length scale...

Active drag reduction of a turbulent boundary layer has been experimentally investigated using periodic blowing through one array of streamwise slits. Local skin-friction drag exhibits a strong dependence on control parameters, including the blowing amplitude A+ and frequency f +. A maximum drag reduction of almost 70% has been achieved at x+=33...

The spatial and temporal distribution of precipitated minerals is one of the key factors governing various processes in the sub-surface environment, including microbially influenced corrosion (MIC) (Huang, 2002), bio-cementation (van Paassen et al., 2010) and sediment diagenesis (Paraska et al., 2014). The mineral precipitation not only affects...

A self-learning adaptive flight control design for non-linear systems allows reliable and effective operation of flight vehicles in a dynamic environment. Approximate dynamic programming (ADP) provides a model-free and computationally effective process for designing adaptive linear optimal controllers. This paper presents an incremental ADP ...

Along with the development of the civil seaplane industry in China and all around the world, the number of seaplane piers in port areas will increase. As a consequence, the port traffic will not only increase, it will also become more heterogeneous, consisting of ships and seaplanes. This paper presents a simulation model to describe this mixed...
