At present, many studies have begun to focus on evaluating urban accessibility and livability, which can be a series of great guidance for future urban planning considering residents’ personal perceptions of various living aspects. It can be observed from the existing literature that urban accessibility has a mature evaluation system,...

Autonomous driving is a new emerging technology that will enhance traffic safety. Automotive radars are essential to attaining autonomous driving since they can function in adverse weather conditions and are used for detection, tracking, and classification in traffic settings. However, the dramatic growth in the number of radar sensors used for...

The potential impact of a grand unified theory of the brain on the robotics community might be immense, as it might hold the key to the general artificial intelligence. Such a theory might make revolutionary leaps in robot intelligence by improving the quality of our lives. The last two decades have witnessed the rise of one such brain theory -...

Imagery collected from space provides very useful information about our planet. Today there are many Earth Observation satellites in orbit which allow us to collect information which is used for environmental monitoring, response to catastrophes, surveillance and security, urban planning, economic analysis and many other applications. Thus,...

Safety is crucial for sustainable growth in organisations and vital for societal progress. Yet, when considering “safety”, one is often confronted with the opposite of what safety is, with a focus on events and occurrences that generate bad consequences. Decisions and actions are ever so often based on past experiences of things that went wrong,...

Since the industrial revolution in the 1760s, the CO2 concentration in the atmosphere has been rising incessantly driving global warming closer to the point of no return. The world requires urgent actions to not only reduce CO2 emissions but also capture the CO2 for utilization to mitigate the future environmental crisis. CO2 hydrogenation to...

The purpose of this thesis was to develop and demonstrate methods for determining the criticality of elements in networks. The impact failures could have on the network performance was its primary focus. A second objective was to determine whether the developed method could be applied successfully based on network characteristics. To achieve...

Under service conditions and because of environmental and climate changes, the concrete is at risk due to crack-induced durability problems. The consequences can be even more pronounced when concrete is exposed to specifically aggressive environmental conditions. This has been portrayed by rapid deterioration of relatively young concrete...

The topic of this dissertation is the distributed computation of Generalized Nash Equilibria (GNEs) in multi-agent games with network structure. In particular, we design and analyze algorithms in the partial-decision information scenario (also named fully-distributed algorithms), where each agent can only rely on the information received by some...

Global warming will exceed 1.5-2°C during the 21st century unless greenhouse gas emissions are heavily reduced in the next 30 years. The average carbon footprint of a person living in the European Union amounted to 6.7 tons of CO2 in 2019, of which 70% is related to the way we live, move and consume. The production and use of electronics, is an...

The increasing size of today's ships is a major concern for navigation in confined waters. In order to ensure safe manoeuvres, port authorities prescribe, among others, a minimum under-keel clearance that must be maintained by the ships during navigation.<br/>However, the seabed of ports situated at the estuaries or along rivers is often covered...

Increasing delays and congestion reported in many aviation sectors indicate that the current centralised operational model is rapidly approaching saturation levels. Air Traffic Control (ATC) system is not expected to keep pace with the ever-increasing demand for air transportation. Its capacity is still limited by the available controllers, and...

Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest threats to global health, food security, and development today, leading to a growing number of difficult-to-treat infections and an economic burden. It can affect anyone of any age and in any country. It is mainly accelerated by the misuse and abuse of antibiotics, poor hygiene, and a lack of...

Introduction - Hydrofoils are often used for high-performance craft. They enable the hull to rise out of the water and reduce drag. A recurring problem is ventilation, this is the presence of a cavity filled with ambient air on the lifting surface. Ventilation causes the lift of the hydrofoil to decrease drastically. A lot of research has been...

Recent studies have shown the feasibility of differential dynamic programming (DDP) in optimizing Earth-centered solar-sail trajectories. In order to further demonstrate the ability of DDP in the optimization of solar-sail trajectories, this work investigates the performance of DDP for optimizing interplanetary solar-sail trajectories. The...

Cardiothoracic surgery is a common treatment for cardiovascular diseases. Patients are admitted to the ICU after cardiothoracic surgery for continuous monitoring to prevent or treat postoperative complications as much and as soon as possible. One of these complications is the development of circulatory shock. It is likely caused by one or a...

The Kuiper belt is one of the last mostly unexplored regions in the Solar System. Exploration of the Kuiper belt can greatly increase humanity's understanding of the Solar System's formation and evolution. The use of low-thrust propulsion for Kuiper belt missions has the potential to improve the payload mass of the mission due to the high...

Cutter suction dredgers (CSD) are highly vulnerable to large wave loading due to their stiff, spud-based mooring. Many mitigations targeted at reducing the resulting stresses on the spud and other critical operating components have been proposed in recent years, most notably by adding a level of flexibility to the connection between the pontoon...

Without us realizing it, solutions for safety and security are present all around us. However, everyone has undoubtedly also experienced how inconvenient some safety and security measures can be. For example, think about security checks at the airport, the need to wear a bicycle helmet, or being asked to perform 2-factor authentication to log...
