There are more than 160,000 recreational crafts in the Netherlands with a toilet on board. It is forbidden to discharge blackwater into the environment from these crafts. Stricter enforcement of the law by the sealing of the valves of the external drain, leaves the owners of these crafts with a major problem. It is allowed, however, to treat the...

The University of Twente performed experimental uniaxial compression tests of Poly(ether-ether-ketone) (PEEK) and the TU Delft made a comparison with a numerical model; the viscoplastic Eindhoven Glassy Polymer (EGP) model. A higher strain-rate dependency and a higher yield stress at lower temperatures are observed in the experimental results....

Visible Light Positioning (VLP) is an emerging field of research with several possible application. While most state-of-the-art VLP systems work with active modulation of light (switching lights on/off rapidly), this poses issues such as the flickering problem and excessive power consumption. In contrast, passive modulation of light (twisting...

This paper presents how a convolutional neural network can be constructed in order to recognise gestures using photodiodes and ambient light. A number of candidates are presented and evaluated, with the most performant being adopted for in-depth analysis. This network is then compressed in order to be ran on an Arduino Nano 33 BLE...

Visible Light Communication (VLC) is becoming an important research area where Visible Light Sources such as LED, Halogen Lamps and even the sun can be used for Wireless Communication. LED-to-Camera Communication is a form of VLC, where the camera can notice intermittent stimuli changes above a certain threshold frequency (flicker fusion...

From 1700 onwards the natural coastal landscape of Mumbai has gone through drastic changes and has become the highly urbanized metropolis we see today. The natural landscape was that of a forest to estuarine topographical gradient. This transformation of the land has had a major impact on the city’s resiliency, impacting water systems, green...

Previous studies have found that there is a strong correlation between the social presence of a teacher and perceived performance of students, and that an increased cognitive load decreases the effectiveness in problem solving. The objective of this study was to find out to what extend holograms can be used to improve the social presence of the...

The adoption of distributed energy resources such as PV cells, electric vehicles and batteries in electric grids is increasing steadily. This brings new challenges for distribution networks. The current network tariffs were not designed for these types of usage and, in many cases, they are not adequate anymore. Thus, many new tariff frameworks...

Crater counting is the main method used to determine the age of a planetary surface. This method relies on knowing the cratering rate to estimate the absolute age of a surface. However, two theories currently exist for impact cratering of the moons in the Saturnian system, one suggesting that the majority of the impactors are of heliocentric...

Over the past decade, renewable power generation through wind power has increased significantly. Especially the installation of offshore wind energy is expected to skyrocket to a total of 2000 GW by 2050. The majority of rights to develop and operate offshore wind farms are allocated through tendering procedures.<br/>In tender procedures,...

Sorting systems form an example of event driven systems. These types of systems are referred to as discrete event systems (DES), and they consist of jobs that need to be performed at available resources. In an autonomous sorting system, jobs consist of robots receiving and delivering parcels at the correct locations. With scheduling, optimal...

This project addresses the inequality gap that exists between the city and the countryside in Colombia in terms of education, access to opportunities, and<br/>technology literacy. By using design and entrepreneurship together with the “Más Por TIC” foundation, we developed the program “1,2,3 x TIC”, an entrepreneurship program for rural...

Observing vegetation water dynamics from space offers insights into plant-water relations and water and carbon fluxes across ecosystems at local to global scales. A promising technique to observe water in the vegetation layer is radar, an active form of microwave remote sensing. Interactions between microwaves and vegetation material depend on...

To eliminate organic micropollutants (OMPs) from (surface) water, activated carbon adsorption is a cost-effective technology to remove a broad range of OMPs without producing any byproducts. However, co-existing dissolved organic matter (DOM), at much higher concentrations (mg C/L) than OMPs (ng/L-μg/L), inducing adsorption competition, can...

One of the major emitters of CO2 is the aviation industry which keeps growing. A solution to reduce carbon emissions is to focus on Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) such as biofuels or synthetic fuels or to focus on sustainable alternative technologies such as electric-powered or hydrogen-powered aircraft. A literature review is conducted that...

More and more people are living in cities. As these cities grow, the benefits of living in them are increasingly unequally distributed. One factor that can turn the tide of glooming urban inequality is equitable access to opportunities. Designing policies for equitable access requires taking into account several components that impact...

Last-mile delivery in urban areas causes many problems, including air pollution, nuisance, and congestion. There are various delivery methods, which differ in terms of costs, sustainability impacts, and societal impacts. One of these methods is crowdshipping. According to literature, crowdshipping is a promising solution to various last-mile...

The development of novel materials has been of great interest to the aerospace industry in the pursuit of efficiency and cost reduction. Fibre-steered variable stiffness laminates have promising characteristics due to the ability to better tailor designs for expected loading, as the fibre orientation can be varied within a layer. This thesis was...
