Ballast, Fabian (author)
The ‘New Space’ mentality is gaining in popularity and is at the basis of the growing size of satellite constellations. These satellite constellations are used for technologies such as satellite navigation and internet, but a clear framework to controlling large satellite constellations is missing. Therefore, a new approach is developed to work...

This thesis presents a comprehensive approach to integrating a trajectory planner and follower for autonomous vehicles (AVs) using model predictive contouring control (MPCC). The planner generates collision-free trajectories with a kinematic bicycle model, while the follower tracks them using a dynamic bicycle model with a smaller integration...

Creating autonomous Micro Aerial Vehicles for executing complex missions poses various challenges, including safe navigation in the presence of external wind disturbances. Most current navigation methods handle external wind disturbances through real-time estimation and rejection algorithms in the control stage, but lack safety guarantees in...

Quay walls are important structures that keep the water in harbours and canals within their bounds, and accommodate large infrastructure like roads or ship-handling structures on top of them. Due to their importance it is critical that they do not fail or collapse. Inspections are done to prevent this, as a better knowledge of the state of quay...

Recent developments have enabled the mass production of cheap, high-performance multirotors. As a result of this, the multirotor has found a large variety of different uses. Testing new algorithms using real-life flights is costly in terms of time and potentially in terms of materials in the case of a crash. Simulators have quickly gained...

For travelling from point A to point B, autonomous vehicles generate a route between the points. During the mission, the vehicle uses a motion planning and controls algorithm to follow the planned route while avoiding static and dynamic obstacles. Motion planning algorithms generally plan over a future time horizon to smoothly follow the route...

Electric vehicles are a cleaner and more efficient means of transport. However, the sub-energy-optimal acceleration and deceleration inputs of drivers result in speed trajectories that cause superfluous expenditure of the stored electrical energy in battery. Optimising the speed trajectories to minimise the consumption of stored energy is a...

Cooperative driving controllers are becoming interesting subjects for future research in automated driving with the increase in connectivity. Using true-scale<br/>autonomous vehicles to properly test new control algorithms can be a challenge<br/>due to three main factors: costs, safety, and space requirements. To overcome<br/>these problems,...

Due to the continuously increasing volume of road freight transportation, there is a need to aid or automate truck-trailer driving. Truck docking, the process of parking a truck-trailer combination at a loading dock, is one of the most difficult manoeuvres for professional drivers. In this work, we propose a Model Predictive Control (MPC)-based...

Research and development of motion control in the field of autonomous driving is significantly increasing nowadays. Model predictive control (MPC) is one of the most powerful and practical tools currently available. It is important to select the parameters of the MPC, such as weights, in a way so that different control objectives can be met...

With inland transportation increasing every passing day, vehicle platooning offers a good solution towards travelling more efficiently. Along with reducing traffic congestion on roads, platooning also leads to better fuel consumption among vehicles, fewer accidents, and most importantly, vehicle platoons can be made autonomous using optimization...

Lodder, Niels (author)
With increased developments and interest in platooning and higher levels of automation (SAE level 3+), the need for safety systems that are capable of monitoring system health and maintain safe operation in faulty scenarios is increasing. Methods for the detection, isolation and identification of faults in automated and cooperative driving is...

de Geus, Justin (author)
The world is becoming increasingly congested due to a continuous growth of world population and overall wealth. Current road capacity limitations will lead to a significant decrease of traffic flow accompanied by a serious increase in global fuel consumption and air pollution. Ever-expanding road infrastructure is not expected to be a...

The progress in technology has made vehicles safer and the quest to make them even more safe is never ending. Autonomous cars present the solution to make cars much more safer by eliminating the primary cause of road accidents, human error. However, autonomous cars tend to fail in decision making especially in complex traffic environment...

This thesis is focused on protecting sensitive data in optimization-based control methods. We propose a novel Privacy-preserving Model Predictive Controller (PMPC) where multiple agents are controlled by an untrusted external coordinator. By using the Paillier additively Homomorphic Encryption (HE) scheme, our PMPC allows the coordinator to...

Zhang, X. (author)
Model predictive control (MPC) is an advanced control technique that offers an elegant framework to solve a wide range of control problems (regulation, tracking, supervision, etc) and handle constraints on the plant. The control objectives and constraints are usually formulated as an optimization problem that the MPC controller has to solve ...
