Safe and reliable autonomous inspection tasks using \ac{MAVs} in cluttered environments are challenging due uncertainties encountered during inspections. In general, algorithms consist of pre-planning paths and executing them. These precomputed inspection paths do not consider potential occlusion by obstacles. In turn, this could render the path...

In modern society cars are one of the most important means of transportation. Unfortunately, many people die in car accidents around the world. Research shows that the number of fatal casualties in car accidents has been increasing for the past decade and that the largest cause of these accidents is the human driver. For this reason, research on...

This thesis tests the hypothesis that distributional deep reinforcement learning (RL) algorithms get an increased performance over expectation based deep RL because of the regularizing effect of fitting a more complex model. This hypothesis was tested by comparing two variations of the distributional QR-DQN algorithm combined with prioritized...

This thesis report is focused on the design of a guidance and control system that is able to minimize the deviation from the desired impact point for a firing range of 1 kilometer, given a 30mm spinning gun-launched projectile with a novel actuator design. This actuator is fixed on the projectile and offers a single force that can only be...

The startup company Fleet Cleaner has developed a mobile robot, specialized in the hull cleaning of large cargo vessels. Navigation and localization of this robot is currently performed manually. This is a difficult process that is greatly complicated during operation. This is mainly due to the availability of relative positioning sensors only,...

Knowledge on adversaries during military missions at sea heavily influences decision making, making identification of unknown vessels an important task. Identification of surrounding vessels based on visual data offers an alternative to AIS information (Automatic Identification System), the current standard in vessel identification, which can be...

Nowadays renewable energy sources (RES) are growing at a rapid pace, particularly the wind energy. The high amount of wind power penetration into the power grids poses a major challenge to Transmission System Operators (TSO) in terms of the operational management, as wind power is highly uncertain. The highly uncertain nature of the wind power...

This MSc. thesis explores the design and implementation of a motion planner for non-holonomic autonomous vehicles in parking spaces. The planner must avoid collisions with static obstacles, satisfy performance, comfort and safety constraints for the motion, satisfy the non-holonomic constraints of the vehicle model, consider the dynamics of the...

Learning capabilities are a key requisite for an autonomous agent operating in dynamically changing and complex environments, where pre-programming is not anymore possible. Furthermore, it is essential to guarantee that the learning agent will act safely by considering its stability properties. In this thesis, novel conditions are proposed,...

Automated vehicle control provides advantages in transport efficiency, redundancy, human-safety, flexibility, and parallelism. Extensive research has been dedicated to direct-following lateral control methods, using a single preview point as reference signal. However, these methods give rise to significant tracking errors. As alternative to a...

Neoclassical economics dictates the decision-making process of economic agents as the mathematical problem of maximizing utility over a prescribed planning horizon. The mathematical similarities with optimal control theory lead to a new interpretation of economic agents as optimal controllers. Pontryagin's maximum principle generates the...

Socially-aware robot navigation strives to find efficient methods to autonomously navigate known environments while incorporating social metrics derived from human behavior. Several methods built for navigation on dynamic and uncertain environments have been adapted to resemble human navigation, but fail to appropriately reflect the social...
