Composite lattice structures (CLS) offer high performance and demonstrate significant mass savings in space structure applications. Local modifications of regular lattice designs have the potential to further improve the lattice performance. This research explored the micro-structural quality features of CLSs manufactured with pre-preg fibre...

There has been a big increase in the use of social robots, such as Pepper, which use verbal communication as the main method of interacting with a human. Verbal communication with a robot is performed using Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) to recognize words from an audio stream containing speech.
These social robots are being more...

With the advent of social robots which are designed to be 'social', human-like interactions have become a necessity. It is natural for us to use a plethora of emotions to convey additional information or to make an interaction more engaging. But emotion expression is not commonly associated with robots. Many humanoid robots cannot generate...

Temperature excursions show that goods that are transported from an aircraft to the warehouse are exposed to ambient temperature for too long, affecting the temperature of the cargo. KLM Cargo has a cool chain project that tends to gain more insight in the operational performance. With the exposure as KPI, defined as Degree-Hours, all subsequent...

In order to achieve redundancy and improve the robustness of an autonomous driving system, radar is a suitable choice for road user detection task in severe working conditions (e.g. darkness, bad weather). However, the real-time multi-class radar based road user detection algorithm is less explored compared with camera and LiDAR solutions. To...

In hospitals, the duration of surgical procedures is susceptible to a number a factors resulting in varying procedure durations of the same procedure. When these procedure times deviate from the predicted surgical duration, scheduling conflicts arise, leading to patient discomfort and inefficient use of hospital resources. Considering the aging...

Climate change causes temperatures to rise worldwide. Up until now it is unclear what effect this has on the global water cycle. In this study the output of two GFDL model experiments were thoroughly investigated and used in the moisture tracking model WAM-2layers, accounting for model runs in a past case in the end-20th century and future case...

When data in higher dimensions with a certain constraint on it, say a set of locations on a sphere, is encountered, some classical statistical analysis methods fail, as the data no longer assumes its values in a linear space. In this thesis we consider such datasets and aim to do likelihood-based inference on the center of the data. To model the...

Cycling in hot and humid environment is demanding for the body. Olympics 2020 will be in Tokyo and the weather is expected to be hot and humid. Performance of the cyclist will be below par if they do not adopt various strategies to keep themselves cool. This project focuses on the development of new jersey with PVA fabric integrated in it to...

Reduction of skin-friction drag over a fully developed canonical zero-pressure gradient turbulent boundary layer (ZPGTBL) subjected to spanwise oscillation is measured using planar particle image velocimetry (PIV). The experiments are conducted at Reθ of 1000 and 1800, the chosen range of spanwise oscillations amplitude and frequency...

Photoconductive antennas (PCAs) have been extensively utilized for the generation of broadband pulses over very large bandwidths. PCAs rely on a semiconductor (e.g. LT- GaAs) gap pumped by a laser and coupled to a passive structure biased at a certain voltage level. When the laser impinges on the semiconductor gap with an appropriate carrier...

OFDM is a common modulation technique applied in the video downlink of drones. In order to eavesdrop on this link, the OFDM signal needs to be demodulated. OFDM demodulators separate orthogonal subcarriers to obtain single carrier signals. This process requires a lot of prior information on the signal parameters.

This thesis presents...

After the construction of the Grevelingendam (1965) and Brouwersdam (1971), the tidal movement in Lake Grevelingen disappeared. This caused a deterioration of ecological parameters influencing the surrounding flora and fauna and consequently a decline of the water quality set in. Amongst others, Rijkswaterstaat and the provinces of Zeeland and...

Grabs are often used for unloading bulk carriers that transport iron ore cargoes around the globe. The unloading process is time-consuming, and terminals strive to maximise their turnover capacity. Grab performance is a combination of maximum crane capacity, grab design and bulk material behaviour. Due to bulk uncertainties occurred by varying...

More than 30% of the world’s hydrocarbon reserves are located in carbonate reservoirs, and this percentage is likely to increase, as a result of discoveries of new giant oil fields in carbonate rocks, generically named “Pre-salt layers”. However, there are still some problems in understanding karst systems that still unresolved. The karst caves...

A network of devices capable of transmitting quantum information called a quantum network has promising applications with vast benefits. One of the most near term achievable application is the quantum key distribution. It could be used for sharing a secret key between two end-users through any insecure authenticated communication channel. Other...

This thesis introduces the concept of phase rotation cancellation (PRC) as a previously unknown error mechanism in narrow-band FSK systems, and proposes a new FSK demodulation algorithm to resolve PRC errors. Phase rotation cancellation is defined as an event where the signal phasor rotation in the IQ plane is temporarily cancelled by the...
