The thesis clarifies the graduation project for the master program of Integrated Product Design at the Delft University of Technology. It describes an interconnection method to connect electronics onto the smart textiles that differs from any solutions existing in the market. Smart textiles are considered as the future of the clothes and are...

All ecosystem services of river are governed by flow regime. The different components of flow regime like topography, geology, and climatic variation contribute to different ecological processes. These ecosystems provide a wide range of direct and indirect benefits to a human being. The ecosystem services such as hydropower, irrigation, drinking...

Although the Dutch energy supply is gradually progressing from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources, the consequences for the grid are becoming increasingly evident. Meanwhile, the gas extraction from the Groningen natural gas reserve is de- clining as the induced earthquakes in the northern Netherlands persist. Hydrogen, as a flexible...

In regions which experience arctic conditions, structures like offshore wind turbines, oil-platforms, light houses, piers and bridges suffer from abrasion by moving ice sheets. This results in challenging maintenance and repair works. At the ice-structure interface, several mechanisms exist which are responsible for the wear of concrete such as:...

In riverine environments under anaerobic conditions, methane and carbon dioxide are produced as a result of biological activity, causing degradation of organic matter. Under aerobic conditions, the bacteria present degrade the organic matter, whereby the concentration of dissolved oxygen may be lowered. Thus, issues experienced in the...

This report is written with the aim to evaluate a possible port expansion in the port of San Vicente, Chile. In order to achieve this a thorough analysis on the port operations, hydrodynamical analysis using Delft3D and a bottleneck analysis on the infrastructure have been executed. A preliminary design for the port expansion is created. This...

One of the challenges introduced by Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS) is the lack of tactile and visual feedback combined with the small diameter of the access gate of the instruments. In this branch of advanced surgery, graspers were chosen for a deeper investigation, because of their crucial role in certain surgical procedures (from abdomen to...

Dense 3D modeling based on monocular visual data is a powerful process of gaining spatial 3D understanding from 2D observations. The use of visual data to reconstruct such 3D models is still a challenging topic. To obtain the accurate dimensions, additional metadata is required such as a GPS which is not always available. Besides this, dealing...

Wildlife conservation efforts are constrained by a limited amount of resources available for surveillance activities. UAVs are used increasingly to assist rangers in patrol tasks. Effectively patrolling wildlife parks requires detailed knowledge of the environment and its threats, which is not always available. Previous work in Green Security...

By analysing existing agent-based model (ABM) charging behaviour formalisations, this study evaluates the impact of a new static band-width network tariff structure on charging demand. Additionally, this approach enables a comparative study to reflect upon the susceptibility and value of the ABM method. Based on the simulation results, this...

Abstract The technical and geographical characteristics of fossil fuels have shaped interstate energy relations for decades. The ongoing energy transition leads to an increasing share of renewables in the electricity mix. Since technical and geographical characteristics of renewables differ significantly from those of fossil fuels, it is likely...

Incremental Nonlinear Dynamic Inversion (INDI) is a sensor-based control strategy, which has shown robustness against model uncertainties on various aerospace vehicles. The sensor-based nature of the method brings attractive properties which has made it popular in the last decade. INDI globally linearizes the system by making use of control...

The next decade will see an unprecedented growth in space activity and usher in a new era in space. Together commercial parties, the so-called NewSpace operators, have announced large constellations that will increase the number of satellites in Low Earth Orbit from almost 2,000 satellites to 20,000. Simultaneously, enhanced space object...

One of the tools that is being equipped in the fight against global warming is greenhouse gas accounting. This thesis studies what factors standard setters can use to influence the probability of widespread adoption for a newly proposed standardized measurement and calculation methodology for corporate greenhouse gas inventories. A theoretical...

Dutch children achieve an insufficient amount of physical activity. For that reason, Delft University of Technology is looking to develop a wearable that contributes to motivating children to move more frequently and more intensely while collecting data on the movements made by its wearer. In this thesis it was investigated whether it would be...

Quadcopters are becoming increasingly popular across diverse sectors such as mapping, photography, or surveillance. Since rotor damages occur frequently, it is essential to improve the attitude estimation and thus ultimately the ability to control a damaged quadcopter. The Control and Simulation group of TU Delft developed a quadcopter...

This thesis outlines the use of measured data collected using the bGrid system to estimate the number of people in two rooms in the Microsoft office at Schiphol. The main objective is to derive a correlation that transforms the data into a specific number of people. The bGrid system consists of a network of sensor nodes that measure CO2...

The shipping industry contributes significantly to the global greenhouse gas emissions due to the use of cheap fossil fuels. The booming cruise ship industry is forced to reduce the emitted greenhouse gases and emission of carbon dioxide to be able to access remote areas with higher restrictions and to comply with upcoming regulations. Fuel...

The need for higher spatio-temporal resolution Earth observation increases rapidly. To fill this need, the Deployable Space Telescope (DST) project aims to make a light-weight, low-volume deployable telescope. In doing so, the achievable ground resolution is high while the cost per telescope stays low. This allows for the DST to be used in...
