In this report we study Markov processes on compact and connected Riemannian manifolds. We define a random walk on such manifolds and give a direct proof of the invariance principle. This principle says that under some conditions on the jumping distributions (i.e. the distributions of single steps), the random walk converges to Brownian motion...

This report describes VR, its patterns and tools to see more. It starts of by explaining what Virtual Reality means and setting the boundaries for the project. It then continues identifying interaction patterns by covering papers, literature, blogs, interviews and researching actual VR applications on the HTC Vive, Google Cardboard and...

Air traffic is growing every year and getting ever more complex. There is however no quick and robust way to analyze a traffic situation in an airspace and compare it to other, similar traffic situations. This research project proposes a new metric to compare air traffic situations in an airspace, based on geometric traffic data. The new metric...

In this thesis, the adaptation of the spectral clustering algorithm to the privacy preserving domain was investigated. The spectral clustering algorithm divides data points into clusters according to a measure of connectivity. A pivotal part of spectral clustering is the partial eigendecomposition of the graph Laplacian. Two numerical algorithms...

The relation between the input of an ideal optical single-mode fiber and the corresponding fiber output constitutes a nonlinear system that can be described using the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. This nonlinear system has the interesting property that it can be solved analytically using nonlinear Fourier transforms. To utilize this property,...

Every year new Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) projects are initiated by governmental institutes. The Dutch government - for example - recently invested € 70 million to look for technological opportunities in the ITS market. However, although significant sums are invested, the return in realized projects is limited. This is because the...

This master thesis is built up around two questions. First: Is it possible to calibrate a ductile failure model, where the strain at failure is a function of stress triaxiality and Lode angle, using only a single SENB specimen? The failure model that is referred to describes local failure in a finite element model to simulate ductile fracture....

This graduation project presents a strategy roadmap for the development of an innovative and educational gardening toy for UNGA. The roadmap intends to act as an organizational tool for the company, to have a holistic overview of the new product development process from the start to the end. This is done by showing the links between solid...

The goal of this graduation project is to know what the brand Mooie Boules is about and how this brand can be made stronger. This is done by concretizing the positioning of the company and how it could communicate according to this positioning. Mooie Boules is a five year old start-up, which organizes boules events and ran a pop-up bar for young...

This graduation project started as a continuation of an earlier design project. The design team Bdot, a group of students from the TU Delft, made a concept design for the company Merford. After the success of the Bdot concept, Merford was inspired to continue development further to a high fidelity prototype or even production. The open workspace...

People living or working close to the highways are at risk to higher exposure levels of different air pollutants, one of which is particulate matter. The Antea group has recently proposed the addition of Electrostatic Precipitators (or ESPs) on the top of sound barriers adjacent to highways, in order to capture the particulate matter and safely...

Lyapunov's 2nd method can be formulated as a convex optimization problem by means of Sum-of-Squares (SOS) optimization. This gives a powerful tool for robust stability analysis of nonlinear systems. The use of SOS optimization is limited to small dynamical systems, because of the demanding numerical complexity underlying SOS optimization. For...

Recently, with the switch to the new generation adaptive optics systems like the VLT and ELT an important identification problem emerged. These telescopes are so-called integrated systems, which means that open-loop calibration of the interaction matrix is not possible anymore. The first and foremost reason for this is that the new generation of...

In this graduation thesis the feasibility of a camera as sensor for nautical operations is investigated. In
aerospace and automotive industries autonomous vehicles are already widely tested and used. However
the marine industry has fallen behind in this development. Therefore this research is focussing on
automation in the maritime...

The project is an initiative to revitalize a multicultural shopping street in Rotterdam, called Middellandstraat. The design question was how to support the shops to attract more visitors to the shopping street through the food diversity. Investigations into the visitors' experience in the street, the context, and market research were done to...

Artificial intelligence is a technology trend that potentially far exceeds the possibilities of all current state technologies, in a sense that these technologies have self-learning abilities. Organizations that manage to adopt and diffuse these technologies may effectively reach a competitive edge over their competitors faster. However, for...

This thesis addresses a problem at KLM E&M, where a gap exist between the desired performance and current performance of airframe MRO. This research is performed to find solutions within the A-check for wide body aircraft by identifying the constraint in the A-check and subsequently develop solution alternatives by first exploiting the...

More than 200 million Indians are without electricity, and the majority lies in the rural areas, where the central grid fails to reach due to unreliable distribution and inconsistent terrain. The solutions that reach include majorly, decentralized energy resources via solar micro-grids, or solar home systems. New projects of energy sharing are...
