de Vette, Martin (author)
In this thesis, the effect of traffic light control on urban networks is investigated, with the main focus on the optimization algorithms used to solve the optimization problems resulting from a model predictive control approach. This will be done by using a macroscopic traffic flow model (the S-Model) to simulate the real-time traffic flows...

There is a high probability that communication between vehicles in a traffic network and between vehicles and traffic controllers will be the next major wave of technological innovation in traffic. The collection of data of communicating vehicles in traffic offers live information about the traffic conditions, which can be used to control...

In oil supply chains, crude oil needs to be transported from oil fields to refineries, and refined products need to be transported from refineries to regional depots. On land, pipelines are the preferred mode for long-distance oil transportation, because they are safe, efficient, silent, and cheap compared to other modes of transport. Pipelines...

In the last decades there has been a significant increase of traffic demand in urban areas due to the development of the economy and the increase of population. The increase in traffic demand leads to a more congested road network. Congestion causes unwanted delays, resulting in higher travel costs, noise, and pollution. Popular methods to...

Current autonomous steering controllers are designed based on either optimal control strategies or on average human driver steering behavior. Individual drivers may wish to steer differently than those controllers do. Such conflicts can be mitigated by customizing individual steering behavior. This thesis aims to develop a method to...

The topic of this study is the control of signalized intersections, specifically the control of switching lanes, which are approach lanes of which the traffic assignment can be changed. When the demand at an intersection varies considerably, being able to change the lane configuration can reduce delay, especially in saturated conditions....

This thesis investigates whether interval methods can be employed in the construction of a novel controller synthesis algorithm based on backward induction. Interval methods are methods employing interval arithmetic, which is an arithmetic defined on real-valued intervals rather than on real-valued numbers. In the controller synthesis algorithm...

Aalbers, A. (author)
Recent years have shown an increased interest in the use of autonomous vehicles. These vehicles must find a path towards a desired location while avoiding obstacles. Since finding the optimal solution is computationally expensive, approximation techniques are often used. In the last decades several path planning techniques have been proposed....

Robotic search is a very active field of research, and especially search with multiple robots is of high interest. A swarm of robots equipped with sensors could be used in a variety of useful settings such as border patrol, monitoring water quality of the ocean with underwater robots, or – in case of the FireSwarm project – for finding dune...

Cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC) makes the vehicle follow its predecessor at a close but safe distance, and uses information received from other vehicles to accomplish this task. In literature and in practice, the control method mostly applied for CACC is proportional integral derivative (PID) control, possibly with some refinement for...

This thesis studies the Switched Linear Quadratic Regulator (SLQR) problem, over a hybrid (continuous and discrete) dynamical model known as "switched system". The problem is defined as computing the optimal continuous and discrete switching control to minimise a quadratic cost function that weights the states and the continuous controls. The...

The drinking water in the Netherlands has been aimed to achieve high quality of water along with a low production cost. In-order to produce such high quality of treated water, constant monitoring of the process variables at the end of each treatment step is recommended. These processes are monitored and operated by motivated and skilled...

At this moment, dynamic traffic management measures are mostly focused on local level. This can result in local improvements but decreasing network performances. To optimize the network performances by the implementation of DTM measures, an optimization method is required. Model predictive control (MLP) is a network-wide and dynamic optimization...

Probe data from consumer GPS navigation devices provides a network-wide and cost-efficient data source for measuring vehicle movements. The measurement of traffic volume, route choice and delay on intersections is needed for efficient intersection control. Data collection from road-side sensors can provide this information but is expensive and...
