The integration of untethered, multi-stimuli responsive actuation into soft microrobotic devices is a goal in the development of “smart” materials. This manuscript reports on a dual-stimuli responsive bilayer actuator consisting of a light responsive liquid crystal network (LCN) and a magnetic responsive polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) composite....

The demand for electronic devices like telephones, tablets and computers is still growing and will grow further in the future. All these devices contain electronic components, which are placed on printed circuit boards (PCBs). The assembly of a PCB is performed by several machines in an assembly line. As the accurate placement of several...

Intelligent autonomous agents, designed to automate and simplify many aspects of our society, will increasingly be required to also interact with other agents autonomously. Where agents interact, they are likely to encounter resource constraints. For example, agents managing household appliances to optimize electricity usage might need to share...

Geodesists use multiple methods to monitor surface deformation. This gives the opportunity to integrate complementary data for better interpretation of deformation processes. The integration of data has to deal with: (1) spatio-temporal differences in sampling methodologies, meaning that observed objects are not the same and thus observed...

This research has two main purposes: (1) to show the quality of dominant nature, above man and (2) to demonstrate the investigation of biodiversity in a city environment both by designing a prototype of a dwelling. The city environment, in this case, is Amsterdam; the dwelling is designed in the Jordaan. The location is chosen because this...

Old bridges in the Netherlands are reassessed to prove their structural safety because of the increased traffic loads. The Eurocode model for the shear capacity of prestressed concrete beams with sufficient shear reinforcement was found to be very conservative for small amounts of transverse reinforcement, which is typical for old bridges. Code...

The Afsluitdijk will undergo major redevelopment. After more than 80 years, the structure is ready for an upgrade. One of the differences which face the engineers of today compared to the original designers is climate change as well as the strict flood safety standards of the 21st century. Climate change is the lead cause of the sea level rise,...

In the Netherlands, wind power has the highest potential for future development compared to alternatives such as solar PV and biomass. The intermittent nature of the wind power resource calls for novel approaches to supply and demand management, as well as power quality assurance. Energy storage technologies allow for the separation between...

The quality of treated drinking water in the distribution network might deteriorate even though the quality of water leaving the treatment plant has been set to be at the highest level. Regrowth of microorganisms or known as microbiological instability is found to be one of the responsible causes for the change of the water quality. This...

Currently, tons of high-quality borosilicate glass are discarded to landfills each year, taking up space on valuable land. Within the existing soda-lime glass recycling industry it is not possible to use recycled borosilicate glass due to its higher melting temperatures and a difference in chemical composition. In fact, borosilicate glass...

The vehicle industry is increasingly exploring emission-free mobility. Transforming the mobility sector to zero-emission vehicles that consume renewable and low carbon fuels is necessary to reduce the impacts on climate change. Hydrogen powered electric vehicles, or Fuel Cell Electric Vehicles (FCEVs), could make a significant contribution to...

The worldwide urbanization is resulting in increasingly densified urban areas, aiming for the development of more space efficient cities. The increase of urban inhabitants, also in the Netherlands, has put vast pressure on the demand of housing in the city. Mainly affected by the Dutch housing crisis are young and elderly people looking for mid...

Visual analysis of high dimensional data is a challenging process. Direct visualizations work well for a few dimensions but do not scale to the hundreds or thousands of dimensions that have become increasingly common in current data analytics problems. Visual analytics is the science of analytical reasoning facilitated by interactive visual...
