For both security and analytics, much research has gone into person tracking already. As a result, many
different state of the art technologies exist. However, in darkness or without a direct line of sight, much
less technologies are capable of this. The choices become especially limited when the setup needs to
be portable.

Fibre Metal Laminates (FML) are hybrid composites, with the attempt to combine the advantages of metals and fibre reinforced plastics. Their promising properties are used locally in joining areas to reduce the structural weight. As the metal foils density, in this case a steel alloy, is much higher than the density of carbon plies, its amount...

Terminals are encouraged to redesign their operations to facilitate future growth of container freight. Routing of Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) can contribute significantly to this trend. Traditional routing, as implemented in real-life terminals, uses a topology of paths. To improve flexibility and scalability of the AGV system, a promising...

This research concerns the analysis of the organisation of transport of cut flowers from Dutch growers. The performance of transport in the current supply chain is analysed with a focus on the total transport costs, and the service level which is primarily defined by the lead time of products. Based on the assessment of the current performance...

Rhegmatogenous retinal detachment (RD) is a sight threatening condition. In this type of RD a break in the retina allows liquefied vitreous to enter the subretinal space and the retina to detach. The prognosis concerning the patients' visual ability is better if the RD has not progressed to the macula. The patient is given a posturing advice of...

The diesel engine plays a dominant role in the field of (maritime) transportation and is expected to do so in the coming years. Depletion of fossil fuels and environmental impact are relevant concerns, widely acknowledged by the international community. NOx contributes to acid deposition and eutrophication. Regulations on NOx emissions become...

A growth in the Dutch food retail is observed. People eat and drink significantly more. 50% of all food is bought in supermarkets and every day over 4 million people in the Netherlands buy their groceries in the supermarket (Rabobank, 2016) (CBL, 2016). However, the current supermarket cannot exist in the future. In its current state, it faces...
