The haptic feedback signal in haptic interfaces is usually in the form of a force on the control device. In contrast, the “active side stick”, investigated in the 80s and 90s, uses an admittance display, whereby the position of the device is linked to the feedback signal, and force applied on the device is used as the control signal. These...

Accurate models of driver steering behavior are essential with ever-growing automation in road vehicles. In this project, the effects of driving speed on steering behavior on winding roads are investigated and modeled. Data were collected in a human-in-the-loop curve driving experiment with fifteen participants, who were asked to drive at five...

This research proposes a new differentiator for estimating higher order derivatives of an input signal. The main reason why higher order derivatives are necessary is that Active Inference makes use of generalized coordinates. This means that it keeps internally track of higher order temporal derivatives of states, inputs and measurements. The...

Over the last few years, regulations, changes in governance, and societal pressure have led to a push to rethink a firms’ approach to sustainability. This push created a need to place sustainability and numerous relevant technologies and approaches at the centre of the firms’ decision-making process. Within the financial industry, the...

For years, CubeSats have been used as flying testbeds for universities and researches, but now have more commercial applications with every day. Still, they possess certain limitations and their success rate nowadays stands at 75%, with a significant amount of faults being deemed as “unknown”. <br/>The research addresses this issue by defining,...

Lymphedema is the accumulation of protein-rich fluid in the intersitium (i.e., dermal backflow (DBF)), causing swelling. It is a commonly seen due to iatrogenic damage to the lymphatics after surgical and radiotherapeutic treatment of cancer. An important microsurgical treatment is lymphovenous bypass (LVB) surgery, during which a lymphatic...

As the world is shifting towards a more sustainable economy, regulation could be implemented to reduce emission from the chemical shipping industry. Confronted by regulation, it is important for shipowners to be able to select the most promising measure or alternative fuel for their specific operations and vessel to comply with such regulation....

Like any other flying system, Kitepower poses risks to third-parties on the ground. Therefore, in this thesis a safety risk assessment is performed for the system of Kitepower. The research question of this thesis is: Which third-party risks are posed by Kitepower operations and how high are these? Kitepower uses a kite attached to a fixed...

The current commercialisation of spaceflight significantly boosts the amount of objects in space, resulting in an increasing risk of involuntary collisions between space debris and operational spacecraft. Collisions are catastrophic for the orbital environment, as they create thousands of pieces of debris flying around that will put other...

The transition towards an energy system with high shares of variable renewable energy (VRE) sources has significant implications for the electricity system's demand and supply of balancing services, i.e. all the services to level out frequency deviations in the electricity system. First, the intermittent character and limited predictability of...

Offshore floating photovoltaic (OFPV) gain increasing attention in research and from project developers, due to the need for more renewable energy production. OFPV must be proven to be both technically and economically feasible to be a viable option in the offshore environment. Several incidents of floating PV systems have been observed for...

Socially Assistive Robots (SARs) i.e., robots that assist humans through social interactions with them, have shown potential to improve the quality of life of their users. Nonetheless, the state-of-the-art SARs face challenges that prevent them from or limit them in assisting humans in the real world. Although current SARs display cues that...

The objective of this research is to design and evaluate a new type of rolling gate for the Western lock (Westsluis) in Terneuzen, for which all sensitive and heavily loaded mechanical parts are both easily accessible and located above water. Having all mechanical parts above water not only makes them easier to inspect and maintain, but it also...

Completely regenerative life support systems are essential to the long-term exploration of far-off locations in space. The shift from physico-chemical to bio-regenerative life support systems has the potential to be a major step towards that goal. The cultivation of plants as part of such a system not only provides life support functions and...

The current industrial application of carbon capture utilization and storage (CCUS) is limited due to technological drawbacks such as high energy demand and environmental pollution. Ionic liquids (ILs) and deep eutectic solvents (DESs) are considered promising alternative solvents for the capture of carbon dioxide (CO2). DESs are often...

Because of the fortunate absence of great flood events in The Netherlands during the second half of the twentieth century, no physical data was added to the structural understanding of flood fragility on walls. Considering that during the same period the cavity wall became standard in the construction of houses, a certain inconsistency can be...

The growing demand for efficient propulsion systems that operate primarily in hover, has led the ducted rotor configuration to emerge as an increasingly popular design solution. One of the major design parameters for the ducted-rotor assembly is the radial distance between the blade tip and the circumferential wall of the duct, referred to as...

Human-robot interaction is a growing field that aims to research and develop communication channels between humans and robots to enhance comfort, safety, and productivity in healthcare, the household, and the industry. Researchers have considered ergonomy-related metrics to compose these channels for physical human-robot collaborative scenarios....

Large-scale measures within the river programmes such as Room for the River, Natura2000 and Water Framework Directive have increased the biodiversity in Dutch rivers and have achieved a more natural landscape. However, recent river programmes have shown conflicts between safety against flooding and riverine nature rehabilitation with maintaining...

This research considers Amels LE and SX super yachts. Bare hull, appended hull, and actuator disk simulations were performed using CFD, and compared to sea trial results. The results of the CFD are unique because they were generated after the sea trials were conducted, resulting in the ship speed in CFD and sea trial being similar. The results...
