This thesis investigates the effect of technological progress on the Dutch labour market. For this, a replication of the Frey and Osborne (2013) study on Dutch data is conducted. The application of the FO model has shown that approximately 12\% of the Dutch workers are at high risk of being replaced due to technological developments. Moreover,...

The exceptional flight capabilities of insects have long amazed and inspired researchers and roboticists striving to make Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) smaller and more agile. It is well known that optical flow plays a prominent role in insect flight control and navigation, and hence it is being increasingly investigated for applications in...

In recent years the growth in the amount of available data has increased enormously. More and more companies, government organizations and citizens are becoming data dependent. Simultaneously with this growth in the availability of the amount of data, there is increasing interest in opening up this data. Open data is data that is freely...

As a move away from the natural gas based heating, the Dutch government identified district heating networks as most economical alternative to the natural gas. However, the future plans for the district heating sector have faced challenge on the question of the design of heat market and management of factors such as ownership, network access,...

Biodegradable materials such as polymers and magnesium and its alloys are gaining attention and approval for clinical use as osteosynthesis implants. However, polymers often lack the required mechanical strength and commercial Mg systems contain elements that are not naturally occurring in the body. Extra-high purity magnesium alloyed with 1...

This research project was initiated as a result of a curiosity and desire to investigate the applicability of surrogate modelling to analyse complex non-linear behaviour in aircraft structures. The study chose to focus on modelling damage in composite plates, and through a literature review, deemed that the generation of graphical outputs was a...

It is expected by the EWEA that in the North Sea only the wind energy capacity will increase to 45 GW. In 2015 the capacity was only 5.2 GW. Offshore contractors should be capable of installing lots of turbines and just that is a problem. As turbines increase in size installation vessels need significant upgrades. Therefore, most contractors...

Musculoskeletal models often use Hill-type models to study and simulate muscle behaviour. Due to fast simulation time and ability to simulate large and slow movements Hill-type models have remained largely unchanged throughout recent years. Large and slow movements spend a large part in steady state behaviour and thus experience limited...

Tradable Peak Credits (TPC) is a new instrument to reduce congestion. It is expected to have a higher public support than traditional road pricing. So far, research has mainly been conducted into behavioral effects and effects on the road network of implementing such systems. This study investigates the public support for TPC and how this...

Global population is expected to keep growing in the coming decades. The United Nations claims that food production will need to increase by 70% due to the growth of population. It will be challenging to increase food production to those levels if the amount of food losses in the supply chain of Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) companies is not...

Model-free reinforcement learning has proved to be successful in many tasks such as robotic manipulator, video games, and even stock trading. However, as the dynamics of the environment is unmodelled, it is fundamentally difficult to ensure the learned policy to be absolutely reliable and its performance is guaranteed. In this thesis, we borrow...

An increasingly dynamic and competitive market forces MRO businesses to improve on efficiency and sustainability of remanufacturing processes. Present research focus on current process states and recovery, improvement and control of process phases beyond initial design without inclusion of return quality. This research addresses a method for...

The average worldwide internet traffic demand in 2022 is projected to be over 1200 Terabits per second. A fifth of this data would be transmitted using mobile networks. One of the technologies used for this is radio frequency (RF) telecommunication, but this technology is reaching its limits. Despite ongoing development, typical data rates are...

Vehicle-2-Home (V2H) is a concept in which an electric vehicle (EV) is able to charge and discharge its battery pack to the building it is connected to. This concept enables EVs to store surplus solar energy, which is produced during the daytime and return in to buildings during the night time. For this system to work (cost) efficiently, the EVs...

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...

The advancements in driver assistance systems in cars and the development of autonomous vehicles require more states of the car to be known than the conventional sensors can accurately determine. Load sensing bearings (LSBs) are under development that measure the wheel forces under dynamic load. Through sensor fusion, the addition of this sensor...

To obtain unambiguous ground truth of water-ice residing in permanently shaded regions of the Moon and to characterise the local regolith, ESA considers a mission involving an instrumented penetrator implanted there by high-speed impact. Released into lunar orbit, the European Lunar Penetrator (ELUPE) Descent Module will autonomously traverse a...
