It is observed that the bed level development of the Pannerden Canal (PC) and the Waal changed since the peak flows of 1993, 1995 and 1998. The erosion rate of the Pannerden Canal decreased greatly just downstream of the bifurcation while the erosion rate of the Waal stayed more or less constant. This leads to an increasing depth of the Waal...

The Netherlands is prone to flooding as more than a quarter of the country lies under sea level. To combat flooding and ensure that the country remains dry structures such are levees and dikes have been installed. However, older water retaining structures are more than ever failing the stringent safety standard assessments. These older...

Cities worldwide are facing increasing impacts from climate hazards such as heavy precipitation, heat stress, flooding, and drought, exacerbated by climate change. This study focuses on unembanked areas (NL: buitendijkse gebieden), vulnerable to flooding due to factors like sea-level rise, river peak discharges, and land subsidence. However,...

Piping and Instrumentation Diagrams (P&IDs) are graphical representations utilized in chemical engineering plants. Due to confidentiality reasons and legacy drawings, these diagrams are sent in PDF format. Piping engineers need to make a material take-off (MTO), a document containing all the components of a P&ID from these drawings....

In recent years, visual Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) have gained significant attention and found wide-ranging applications in diverse scenarios. Recent advances in computer vision and deep learning also enrich visual SLAM capabilities in scene understanding and large-scale operation. However, despite remarkable performance in...

This study examines the validity of constant failure rates in the reliability assessment of storm surge barriers, with a focus on the Stormvloedkering Oosterschelde (SVKO). Analysing a dataset of 1,501 malfunctions, including 87 critical incidents over six years, we employ Exponential and Weibull statistical models to assess failure rates. The...

Robots are increasingly deployed in various locations to automate tasks, including in barns. However, in barns cows can obstruct the sensors such as LiDAR or camera, leading to a lack of environmental information. As a result, the robot’s localization system only relies on odometry at those moments, introducing additional uncertainty to the...

Climate change is adding more and more pressure to the water systems. The area which is protected by the storm surge barrier of Ramspol have high probability of flooding for climate projections in 2050 and 2100. <br/>Nowadays, the development of the technology is providing with numerous tools and analytical models for the engineers. However, in...

In the field of Systems and Control, optimal control problem-solving for complex systems is a core task. The development of accurate mathematical models to represent these systems’ dynamics is often difficult. This complexity comes from potential uncertainties, complex non-linearities, or unknown factors that might affect the system. Because of...

Drifting, a specialized form of sideslip control, involves intentionally inducing and maintaining a state of oversteer for lateral sliding of the vehicle. While previous research has primarily focused on autonomous drift control, the integration of the driver in the control loop remains largely unexplored. This thesis aims to explore how a...

Many recent robot learning problems, real and simulated, were addressed using deep reinforcement learning. The developed policies can deal with high-dimensional, continuous state and action spaces, and can also incorporate machine-generated or human demonstration data. A great number of them depend on state-action value estimates, especially the...

This thesis proposes a novel algorithm, Wi-Closure, to improve computational efficiency and robustness of map matching in multi-robot SLAM. Current state-of-the-art techniques connect maps with inter-robot loop closures, that are usually found through place recognition. Wi-Closure decreases the computational overhead of these approaches by...

Sea level rise will increase the risk of flooding in coastal areas. This poses a risk to the coastal protection as well as rivers and lakes close to the coast. Solutions are needed to cope with this threat. The past decade, nature based solutions have gained significant interest. One of these solutions could be sandy foreshores. Due to the use...

The production and consumption of electricity need to be balanced at all times. Due to the ever-growing shift towards renewable energy generation, this poses an increasingly difficult challenge. Currently, supply is regulated to maintain balance. However, there is potential to improve reliability and save costs by shifting the balancing to the...

To enable communication for patients who have lost the ability to speak due to severe neuromuscular diseases, covert speech based brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) might be used. These system use neural signals arising from covert speech and translate them into text or synthesised speech. Covert speech is imagining to speak without moving any of...

To improve Active Vibration control methods like Independent Modal Space Control (IMSC), an estimate of the modal contribution of vibrational eigenmodes of compliant structures is required. In this work, three Recursive Bayesian input and state estimation algorithms previously introduced in civil engineering are evaluated for use on on high-tech...

Weather generators (WGs) based on temporal resampling algorithms are not able to generate new extremes with the same or a higher temporal resolution as the historical data series of the thus far <br/>observed precipitation. This is problematic for catchments with a time of concentration shorter than the resolution of the used data and conflicts...

Deterministic predictions of wave induced ship motion are increasingly often used to enlarge the oper- ational envelope of ships that perform complex operations at open sea. The large amount of complex operations performed nowadays, motivates the relevance of motion predictions. The company Next Ocean provides these forecasts, based on linear...

Single Molecule Localization Microscopy (SMLM) has enabled researchers to breakthrough the diffraction limit and obtain nanometer resolution images of macromolecular structures. But due to the time involved in obtaining ample data for proper image, the technique is venerable to many problem including fluctuations due to thermal gradients from...

In order to improve the autonomy of construction robots, a Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) solution is needed that localizes the robot using solely on-board sensing with sub-5 mm accuracy. As pointed out by the results of the Hilti SLAM Challenge, the state-of-the-art in SLAM currently does not offer a solution that comes close to...
