Drones are increasingly used nowadays, primarily for visual inspection tasks facilitated by onboard cameras. The field of aerial manipulation tries to expand the capabilities of drones by attaching a manipulator, enabling physical interaction. Unfortunately, the usability of aerial manipulators is hindered by disturbances resulting from the...

The current global environmental crisis has resulted in increased efforts towards more efficient and sustainable industrial processes. High-temperature heat between 150 ◦C & 400 ◦C accounts for a major part of the energy demand in industrial processes. At the same time, large quantities of waste heat are unutilised at temperatures up to 200 ...

Atrial fibrillation is a cardiac arrhythmia resulting from abnormal electrical conduction and impulse formation within the atria. To address this condition, a minimally invasive procedure called cardiac ablation is performed. Real-time visual feedback during this procedure plays a critical role in determining its success.<br/><br/>Photoacoustic...

This research presents a novel data-based modal control method for actively dampening the flexible mode in a multi-input multi-output (MIMO) system. Traditional passive damping methods add significant mass to the system, making recent advances in sensor and actuator technology, such as lightweight piezoelectric materials, a more appealing...

Silicon wafers and solar cells are delicate components used in the semiconductor industries and energy industries. Handling and transportation can easily damage these components. Conventional handling methods with mechanical contact can cause various damages to these delicate surfaces. Air bearings can provide a solution by enabling an almost...

Increasing global parcel shipping volumes and just-in-time delivery force distribution centers to handle increasingly larger volumes of greatly varying parcel types. Automated material handling systems are essential to achieve these challenging requirements. A push divert sorter is one of these systems. This system uses a series of sliding...

Bone drilling is a surgical action required for bone fixation using plates. The holes are currently drilled using a large, conventional drill. This causes problems when limited space is available, de to the size of the drill. For that reason a new, small Compact Drilling System is proposed. In earlier research a compact self-feeding mechanism...

In this thesis report, the potential for high-throughput fabrication of micromechanical metamaterials is studied. Metamaterials are structures typically consisting of repetitive micrometre-sized features that introduce new and extraordinary ‘material’ properties. However, up to now these structures are predominantly fabricated with slow 3D-print...

Improved handling methods are required in order to decrease the manufacturing cost of solar cells and flat panel display. A potential method would be to use a contactless handling system based on air bearing technology. As the name implies, the substrate levitates on a thin film (~10 μm) of air. The viscous shear force is used to exert a lateral...

Patients with a Fontan circulation have a diminished life expectancy of only 30-40 years old. A mechanical circulatory assist device can potentially increase their life expectancy and quality of life. Given the complexity of the anatomy and physiology of the Fontan circulation, design of a safe and effective mechanical assist device is a...

The goal of this study is to develop a measurement setup that can accommodate the water-cooled modules present in the innovative e-beam lithography tool developed by Mapper Lithography and to perform flow verfication measurements on them. The overall objective is to verify the stage-stability requirements set for the Matrix-machine with regards...

Cochlear implants (CIs) are the most effective solution to treat severe-to-profound hearing loss. These medical devices mimic and replace the function of the damaged structures of the cochlea. To this date, more than 700,000 individuals worldwide have benefited from CIs. However, state-of-the-art CIs do not provide a natural and high-quality...

Dielectric elastomer actuators (DEAs) are a type of soft actuators that consist of a dielectric elastomer membrane, covered with an electrode on the top and the bottom. When applying a potential, the opposite charges on the electrodes induce an electrostatic force which squeezes the elastomer, causing it to expand. This expansion can be used as...

Multi­-material 3D inkjet printing has great potential for rapid prototyping and manufacturing of functional mesoscale structures when novel inks are combined into a fully integrated AM-process. This process can be faster and cheaper than conventional methods to produce functional structures. Research is conducted on a large range of potentially...

Freeform overhanging microstructures are used for various applications, for example in micro metamaterials. To create these structures industry uses a variety of manufacturing methods. There is a gap in manufacturing methods that can produce a microstructure at a high resolution and use multiple materials at individual locations. Inkjet printing...

Boron-doped diamond (BDD) is an attractive electrode material. When sufficiently boron-doped, diamond has metal-like conductivity and in comparison with other electrode materials has several advantages, such as lowand stable background current, reduced biofouling, broad potentialwindow, corrosion resistance and chemical stability. However,...

The objective of this thesis is to show that warping can be used in a thin-walled beam to create a suitable replacement for a classical differential mechanism. This normally negated deformation of the cross section can be used to create an inverse transmission mechanism, used to create a monolithic and simple alternative to a classic...

As technology is advancing, the need for precision stages is increasing. These stages are being used with (electron) microscopes for scientific research and industrial applications. They can be operated manually or by actuators, where the motorized stages are quite expensive in general and the cost increase significantly if better performance is...

Running robots at insect scale are an upcoming research field, because of their numerous potential applications like exploration of hazardous environments such as collapsed buildings, natural disaster sites and debris. To date no report exists on such a robot that either exploits its resonance, or that is monolithic. These properties, however,...
