Congestion is one of the big annoyances people experience in their everyday life. Furthermore, congestion has negative effects on both the environment and the economy. In short, it forms a very big problem to society. This thesis focuses on a specific type of congestion, namely a ‘wide moving jam’. This is typically a short jam that propagates...

Corrective osteotomy is the treatment for malunion of bone segments, which is required after insufficient fracture management. To perform this procedure adequately, 3D imaging is used to make a virtual plan of the osteotomy. In order to transfer this virtual plan to the patient in the operating room, a navigation method is required. Existing...

The starting point of this research is to asses possible shortcomings of the combined operation of a Dynamic Positioning (DP) vessel and a motion compensation system, with respect to the amount of energy that is used. The motion compensation system is used to allow a safe transfer from the vessel to a static offshore structure. Both systems have...

The major goal of this master thesis is to improve truck safety and comfort during lane change manoeuvres. This thesis focuses on the scenario of the driver doing sports exercises inside the cabin when the vehicle is driving automatically on a highway. This topic is one of the foci of the international GlobalDrive project from Technical...

Modern passenger vehicles are equipped with an increasing number of actuators that may be used to actively control the lateral and longitudinal dynamics of the vehicle. During limit-handling situations, proper coordination of all the available actuators by the vehicle stability control (VSC) can lead to improved overall control authority, which...

Jack-up platforms are off-shore structure which are more often placed in deeper water and harsher weather conditions. The consequence is that the natural frequency of the platform coincides with the wave frequency and starts to resonate in its natural frequency. The problem becomes more complicated, due to the fact that the natural frequency of...

Large-scale coal-fired power plants are typically designed as base-load units. This means that they are traditionally run at continuous high loading levels, most often full-load. The current energy market asks for more flexibility as renewable energy sources continue to penetrate the energy market. Coal-fired power plants are forced to operate...

As a component of Dutch Automatic Vehicle Initiative (DAVI) project, this study aims at improving highway driving safety of autonomous vehicle. It is observed that some misbehaved drivers do not use turn indicators forehead a lane change on highway. For a self-driving car in such situations, a lane change is potentially dangerous without an...

Traffic congestion leads to significant economic and environmental costs. Currently, we can reduce congestion using infrastructure based systems, such as ramp metering installations and variable speed limits. However, we see more and more in-vehicle technologies which have the potential of replacing infrastructure based technologies. Therefore,...

World’s largest urban growth is taking place in Sub Saharan Africa. As a result, the demand for mobility is increasing. However, the supply of urban infrastructure is low. This is causing mobility problems, such as congestion. Improvements are possible by building new infrastructure. This is a long term, complex and expensive solution. A short...
