Increasing digitalisation of society due to technical advancement has increased the appearance and size of cyber- physical systems. These systems require real-time reliable control, which comes with its challenges. These systems need reliable communication despite the presence of attacks or faulty processes and bad connections, which can disrupt...

Vulnerability reduction is an important topic during the design of naval ships because they are designed to operate in hostile environments and because their on-board distributed systems are becoming increasingly complex. The vulnerability needs to be addressed in the early design stages already, in order to prevent expensive or time...

The demand for artificial intelligence has grown significantly over the past decade, and this growth has been fueled by advances in machine learning techniques and the ability to leverage hardware acceleration. However, to increase the quality of predictions and render machine learning solutions feasible for more complex applications, a...

Blockchains such as the Bitcoin facilitate the online transaction between users without an intermediate financial institution and can serve as a global currency. However, at the moment, blockchain solutions are suffering from low transaction throughput and high delays. For instance, the bitcoin network processes at most 7 transactions per second...

Imagine being lost in a desert with a bunch of friends, all of a sudden. Survival will be difficult. You will have mirages, distrust among friends and no means to leave landmarks on the sand. Unable to locate yourself, you will have no means to contact people with maps. The best you can do in such a situation is to stay together in the vicinity...

For this project, JEM-id tasked us with creating a proof of concept of a new online auction in the form of a web application for Royal FloraHolland. JEM-id is a software company operating in the agricultural domain.<br/>The pre-existing digital auction is not available as a web application and has generated technical debt over the past twenty...

In recent years, many countries and administrative domains exploit control over their communication infrastructures to censor online materials. The concrete reasons behind the Internet censorship remain poorly understood due to the opaque nature of the systems. Generally, Internet censorship is to disrupt the free flow of information. It involves...

In decentralized applications requirements on latency are high. For instance, in trading<br/>applications a millisecond latency advantage can save companies millions of dollars. In<br/>this thesis a design is proposed for an overlay in a decentralized peer-to-peer system<br/>that lowers the latency between connected peers. The overlay is...

Minecraft is one of the most popular games of all time,<br/>and provides both entertainment and education to people around the globe.<br/>One of the main challenges in gaming is increasing the scalability of these games to support the large numbers of players they attract.<br/>Minecraft-like games make this challenge even more difficult by...

Blockchain systems have the potential to decentralise many traditionally centralised systems. However, scalability remains a key challenge. Without a horizontally scalable solution, where performance increases by adding more nodes to the system, blockchain systems remain unsuitable for ubiquitous use. We design a novel blockchain system called...

Otte, P. (author)
In this thesis, the problem of estimating trust in distributed systems is considered. Distributed systems can be virtual or real-world systems in which multiple agents interact. One of the biggest problems in distributed systems is that they only function well if everyone contributes some resources. If agents do not participate, or try to...

Video Streaming is nowadays the Internet’s biggest source of consumer traffic. Traditional content providers rely on centralised client-server model for distributing their video streaming content. The current generation is moving from being passive viewers, or content consumers, to active content producers, and the traditional content...

In P2P content distribution networks, incentive mechanisms are required for sustainable operation of the network. In general, there are two classes of incentive mechanisms, direct and indirect. In direct mechanisms, a content consumer compensates the work of a supplier by providing him some content in return. In indirect mechanisms, the work of...

With the increasing adoption of distributed systems in both academia and industry, and with the increasing computational and storage requirements of distributed applications, users inevitably demand more from these systems. Moreover, users also depend on these systems for latency and throughput sensitive applications, such as interactive...

In recent years, large-scale systems have become mainstream at a very high pace. Typical examples of large-scale systems are MANETs, Wireless Sensor Networks, Pervasive Computing, Swarm Robotics, etc. These systems distinguish them- selves by the large number of devices they embody, and emergent behaviors they exhibit: Behavior that is globally...

Blended source arrays are historically configured with equal source units, such as broadband vibrators (land) and broadband air-gun arrays (marine). I refer to this concept as homogeneous blending. I have proposed to extend the blending concept to inhomogeneous blending, meaning that a blended source array consists of different source units....

QB50 is a mission establishing an international network of 50 nano-satellites for multi-point, in-situ measurements in the lower thermosphere and re-entry research. As part of the QB50 mission, the Delft University of Technology intends to contribute two nano-satellites both being equipped with a highly miniaturized propulsion system in addition...

Synchronization of energy consumption is a key determinant for the stabilization of smart energy grids. This paper proposes software agents that locally synchronize the energy usage of appliances to minimize the oscillations in global energy consumption. Agents can manage demand-side devices with periodic operation and synchronize their...

The study of the history of computing infrastructures reveals an integration trend. For example, the explosive growth of the Internet in the 1990s was the result of an integration process started in the 1960s with the emerging networks of computers. By using the Internet, millions of users were capable of accessing information anytime and...
