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.

Crystalline silicon (c-Si) solar cells based on the polycrystalline silicon (poly-Si) passivating contact is becoming one of the most promising solar cell structures that enable high efficiency due to the minimization of metal contact recombination. The interdigitated back contact (IBC) crystalline silicon (c-Si) solar cells based on poly-Si...

Intermittent generation behaviour of wind and solar power units requires Transmission System Operators (TSOs) to activate balancing power to maintain a stable grid frequency. With the current strong growth in installed renewable energy capacity in The Netherlands, it is therefore expected that the volumes of activated balancing power will grow...

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...

SCOPE - Design thinking is the most used method of design within the faculty of design engineering. Design thinking methodology has three pillars, technical feasibility, user desirability and business viability. Every designer should design on the limits of new technology, make products that people want to use, all while maintaining a feasible...

For many years 3D printing has been one of the most exciting promises in future technologies. One of the issues with the penetration of 3D printing technology is the required proficiency with creation software; and the lack of experience in design. This report describes the exploration into a novel means to empower users to create unique design...

Climate change and human influences are widely investigated. However, the processes of aerosol-cloud interactions are still not adequately known and the associated lack of knowledge causes uncertainties in climate change prediction. Therefore this study presents different approaches to investigate those interactions, in particular the Twomey...

The office is not what it used to be. Rapid developments in IT technology, fuelled by the ever increasing need for businesses to reduce their costs make way for offices with a sometimes unhealthy appetite for facility and employee efficiency. The office building is transforming from a static piece of concrete towards a flexible shell with...

The Royal Netherlands Navy (RNN) operates four diesel-electric submarines, the Walrus class. The submarines sail submerged on electric engines and periodically recharge the batteries with diesel engines at periscope depth. The exhaust gases are dispelled at the back of the sail below water level. During the sea trials it was observed that the...

Using Schiphol’s Security Scanner is confusing for a lot of passengers. Therefore, security agents currently have to fully take on the task of guiding the passenger through the Scanner. This repetitive task in the high volume environment of Schiphol security leads to physical and mental exhaustion which results in frustration, and is projected...
