This PhD thesis investigates V2V, V2I, and I2I cooperation of CMVSs for improving the safety and efficiency of waterborne transport. A predictive motion control framework and a generic negotiation framework are proposed to achieve consensus among controllers. Different applications provide insights into the impact of CMVSs on the performance of...

Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs), as one of the popular options for people to receive education and learn, are endowed with the mission to educate the world. Typically, there are two types of MOOC platforms: topic-agnostic and topic-specific. Topic-agnostic platforms such as edX and Coursera provide courses covering a wide range of topics,...

Bulk solids handling continues to play an important role in a number of industries. One of the issues during bulk solids handling processes is equipment surface wear. Wear results in high economic loss and increases downtime. Current wear reduction methods such as optimizing transfer conditions or using wear-resistant materials, have brought...

Due to climate change, sea level rise, increasing frequency and intensity of storms, and growing population in low-lying coastal regions, the risk of flooding is expected to increase. Owing to these developments, maintenance and adaption of the existing coastal flood defence is often required. To meet this dilemma, the concept of multifunctional...

?-Hydroxy carbonyl compounds are an important class of compounds often found as a common structural motif in natural products. Although the molecules themselves look rather simple, their synthesis can be challenging. Water addition to conjugated C = C bonds opens up a straightforward route for the preparation of ?-hydroxy carbonyl compounds....

In this thesis, we have focused on applying Spectrum-based Fault Localization (SFL) to diagnose Service-Oriented Systems at runtime. We reused a framework-based online monitoring technique to obtain the service transaction information. We devised a three-phased oracle and combined this with monitoring to detect system failures at runtime. Both...

The aggressive semiconductor technology scaling provides the means for doubling the amount of transistors on a single chip each and every 18 months. To efficiently utilize these vast chip resources, Multi-Processor Systems on Chip (MPSoCs) integrated with a Network-on-Chip (NoC) communication infrastructure have been widely investigated. However...

Task complexity and time pressure may have impacts on travellers’ choices in the context of highly synchronised mobility networks. However, it is unclear at the moment how these two aspects should be properly modelled simultaneously and what these impacts of the two aspects really are on travellers’ choices. Consequently, this research aims to...

In this thesis, we report several effects in spintronics and spin caloritronics related to relativistic spin-orbit coupling. In Chapter 2, we discuss the relativistic spin caloritronicHall effects in terms of a semiclassical theory for anomalous thermoelectric effects in ferromagnetic metals due to spin-orbit scattering at impurities, including...

Mechanical properties of low alloyed steels are directly determined by their microstructures. Thanks to versatility in their microstructures, the mechanical properties of low alloyed steels are much more adjustable than other materials. In the industry, one of the most effective ways to obtain the microstructure for the targeted mechanical...

Conducting polymers are attractive chemical sensing materials due to their outstanding characteristics including low cost, room-temperature operations, easy device fabrication, high sensitivity and short response time. The new nanowires architecture, with high surface-to-volume ratio, makes possible the conducting polymers an ultra fast...

One purpose of exotic derivative pricing models is to enable financial institutions to quantify and manage their financial risk, arising from large books of portfolios. These portfolios consist of many non-standard exotic financial products. Risk is managed by means of the evaluation of sensitivity parameters, i.e. the so-called Greeks, the...

This thesis presents the development of low-noise CMOS image sensors for radio-molecular imaging. The development is described in two directions: firstly, from the technology point of view to reduce the pixel noise level, and secondly from the design point of view to reduce the pixel readout circuits noise level. With respect to the SNR and...

This dissertation proposes strategies not only for modelling price behavior in the dry bulk market, but also for modelling relationships between economic and technical variables of dry bulk ships, by using modern time series approaches, Monte Carlo simulation and other economic techniques. The time series modelling techniques, described...

Location controlled single-grain TFT by ?-Czochralski process has attracted a lot of interest due to its high field effect mobility which is comparable to SOI. However, the major challenge is the random orientation of the grains due to the lack of seed layer to control the orientation. This will result in poor device uniformity and limit its...

The direct writing technology known as ion-beam-induced deposition (IBID) has been attracting attention mainly because of its high degree of flexibility of locally prototyping three-dimensional (3D) nanostructures. These high-resolution nanostructures have various research applications. However, no systematic study of the capability of IBID to...

The emerging of large-scale urban (re)development projects presents a complex situation for local urban managers to deal with. They involve various local-global actors, public-private sectors and flow of finance and know-how from far beyond local city boundaries. Developing projects as such can be prolonged. In the development of Pudong New Area...
