For traditional, manual real estate appraisals, the appraiser is required to provide a number of comparable properties (the 'Comps'). These comps act as a benchmark for the valuation as well as a provider of context in the final appraisal report. Traditionally, these comps are selected manually by an appraiser based on recent transactions within...

When sunlight illuminates a body, a tiny pressure is exerted upon its surface due to the photons impacting on it. Such a principle forms the basis of solar sailing, in which the solar radiation pressure is used to accelerate highly reflective lightweight structures called solar sails. Similarly, a laser-enhanced solar sail is a solar sail in...

Advanced tools such as machine learning are slowly finding their way into the modern scientist’s toolbox . In the design of mechanical systems however hardly any machine learning applications are being used. Research into the viability of such an application is therefore necessary.
We have performed such research, using a specific type of...

This master thesis aims to gain new empirical insights into longitudinal driving behavior by means of the enumeration of a new hybrid car-following (CF) model which combines parametric and non parametric formulation. On one hand, the model, which predicts the drivers acceleration given a set of variables, benefits from innovative machine...

Autonomous grasping is a key requisite for the autonomy of robots.
However, grasping of unknown objects in domestic environments is difficult due to the presence of unpredictability and clutter.
In this paper, a novel algorithm capable of finding an unobstructed grasping pose on unknown regular object shapes in cluttered environments is...

Analysing attractiveness of places in a region is beneficial to support urban planning and policy making. However, the attractiveness of a place is a subjective and high-level concept which is difficult to quantify. The existing methods rely on traditional surveys which may require high cost and have low scalability. This thesis attempts to...

Motocross is a popular, but dangerous sport: improvements in performance and safety should be made to make it more attractive and less dangerous. By automatically recognizing activities of the rider on the track, riders can be informed about dangerous situations, and fans can be provided with insights into the performance of the riders. The goal...

In this research, we studied the impact of the 5'UTR sequences on translation. This is done by generating various features describing the 5'UTR. Those features are then used as input in regression and classification models, that have the Translation Initiation Rates as target. The reason why it is of such importance, is dual. Because is very...

Container vessels arriving in a port before or after their scheduled time can cause problems in the container terminal planning and planning of hinterland transportation. This in turn leads to an increase of the costs in the supply chain. Vessels communicate their Estimated Time of Arrival via Automatic Idetification System(AIS) data to the port...

This project addresses a fundamental problem faced by many reinforcement learning agents. Commonly used reinforcement learning agents can be seen to have deteriorating performances at increasing frequencies, as they are unable to correctly learn the ordering of expected returns for actions that are applied. We call this the disappearing...

Wireless sensor networks are commonly used to remotely and automatically monitor environments.
One of the main challenges in wireless sensor networks is to use the limited available energy as efficiently as possible, to ensure longevity of the network. For such networks to survive their intended deployment period no energy may be wasted on...

This MSc thesis presents a stochastic modelling approach to the multi-period airline fleet planning problem. Approximate Dynamic Programming (ADP) is used to model the impact of demand uncertainty on fleet decisions. The proposed ADP algorithm applies local value function approximations resulting from Gaussian kernel regressions to estimate...

A world without digital images is unthinkable in this era of information and communication technology. Billions of images are created, shared and ultimately enjoyed by users every day. However, digital images are sensitive to a wide variety of distortions during the delivery mechanism it goes through. Any of the distortions that can arise during...

Being a bank, bunq deals with transaction fraud on a regular basis. All transactions that are handled by bunq are monitored for these cases of fraud by a transaction monitoring system. When this system flags a transaction as being possibly fraudulent, a bunq employee has to manually check this transaction. The problem with the current system is...

Flight control of the DelFly is challenging, because of its complex dynamics and variability due to manufacturing inconsistencies. Machine Learning algorithms can be used to tackle these challenges. A Policy Gradient algorithm is used to tune the gains of a Proportional-Integral controller using Reinforcement Learning. Furthermore, a novel...
