Large cities in the Netherlands, like Rotterdam, have hundreds of playgrounds, but local governments have little information on how children and adults use them. Usage data can help create playgrounds that better fit with the residents' needs by identifying what elements of a playground are the most popular, and which do not get used. The AMS...

The Internet of Things is a promising vision which enables trillions of sensor devices to be connected. A common bottleneck for such devices is the energy supply. Using batteries is expensive, it reduces the device lifetime and has a negative impact on the environment. Energy harvesting provides a more sustainable solution. Unfortunately,...

Billions of wireless devices are interconnected to provide services to many<br/>aspects of life and form The Internet of Things. These devices which are<br/>often battery-powered and energy efficient can benefit greatly from an ac-<br/>curate localisation service that does not consume extra energy. Several loc-<br/>alisation methods have been...

Open-domain question answering (QA) is an important step in Artificial Intelligence and its ultimate goal is to build a QA system that can answer any question posed by humans. The majority of the open-domain QA system is the retrieval-based open-domain QA system, which enables the retrieval component to retrieve relevant documents from a large...

It is predicted that in about 100 years most of the earth's fossil fuels will have been depleted. Currently, fossil fuels still make up 80% of the Dutch energy production. Thus, to handle this depletion, the research on renewable energy production and its usage is being stimulated by governments. With the use of fossil fuel energy production, it...

Inter-Autonomous System (AS) route monitoring is the process of collecting the inter-AS routing information. This information flows on the Internet in the form of BGP UPDATE messages, and the BGP data are the messages obtained by the monitors. Existing methods of monitor placement rely on the network topology which provides inadequate visibility...

The proliferation of big-data processing platforms has already led to radically different system designs, such as MapReduce and the newer Spark. Understanding the workloads of such systems enables tuning and could foster new designs. However, whereas MapReduce workloads have been characterized extensively, relatively little public knowledge...

Current hospital protocols dictate patients be turned at least every three hours in the effort of preventing pressure ulcers. To reduce the workload of nurses, Momo Medical has created an embedded sensing device to track the patient's posture and notify nurses when it is time to turn them. The challenge presented and the focus of this thesis is...

In today's world, the Internet is the backbone of our society. The relatively unknown Border Gateway Protocol (BGP), and with its vulnerabilities, gives malicious parties an opportunity for abuse. By improving the currently known AS relation data set and by simulating BGP traffic this abuse is better spotted. Kastelein's topology generating...

For the Internet of Things (IoT) applications that send a few bytes of sensor information infrequently, several long-range IoT technologies have been conceived. Narrowband IoT (NB-IoT) is one of them that stands out due to its extended coverage, high penetrability, and high reliability features. Envisaged<br/>long device lifetime and the...

The IoT contains billions of interconnected devices and is only growing larger by the day. These devices often need to operate for years while keeping mobile objects, such as animals or vehicles, connected to a larger system. Therefore they will be battery-powered, energy efficient and, their position will be tracked. Therefore, connecting these...

5G, the next generation of mobile network, is expected to be launched commercially around 2020. Compared to the present generation – 4G mobile network, a significant improvement in terms of performance and reliability is considered for 5G. One of the important factor in the design of 5G is – about 10 times lower packet latency than 4G. Some of...

Online advanced media streaming services using HTTP adaptive stream-<br/>ing are increasingly popular. However in practice, the multi-protocol, multi-<br/>format nature of adaptive streaming creates a lot of engineering eort and<br/>costs for the operators, in the storage and preparation of the dierent<br/>formats. In this work, we acknowledge...

Heavy competition between container terminals and the increasing volume of world-wide container shipment force container terminals to continuously increase productivity and reduce costs. An important condition for optimal operation of container terminals is that Quay Cranes (QCs) maximize their productive time, which requires a minimal lateness...
