The Delfi-n3Xt was the second nanosatellite developed at the Delft University of Technology, and launched in 2013. Its successor Delfi-PQ is expected to be launched in first half of 2019. The Attitude of a satellite can be referred to as its orientation in space with respect to inertial reference frame. The Delfi-n3Xt was the first satellite...

Batteryless network nodes could enable unprecedented ubiquitous sensing applications, while gathering energy from the environment and hence removing maintenance costs for batteries. However, these devices inherently suffer frequent power failures and reboots, due to the volatility of the incoming energy, thus classical synchronous message...

Energy harvesting and battery-free sensing devices show great promise for revolutionizing computing in every known area while expanding to non-conventional use-cases. The promise of cheap, dense, and ubiquitous sensing technology brings new applications for the Internet of Things. However, the future programming model is blurry and complex. With...

Providing more confidentiality by extending a capability-based OS trough a hardware enforced isolation between the memory of the kernel and other memory. By employing memory tagging and hardware based Inter Process Communication (IPC) this defense gives an overhead of 26 percent.

Progress has been made recently in the research of equal hierarchy backscatter communications. There are, however, challenges to overcome before this technology can become mainstream. For example, state-of-the-art solutions to the phase cancellation problem that occurs in such networks are still trivial and sub-optimal, especially in terms of...

The idea of having a smart environment to automate day to day tasks appeals to us all. To enable this, we need objects with embedded electronics to communicate with each other in a network known as the Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT communication infrastructure is built on top of existing Radio Frequency (RF) technologies such as Bluetooth...

A lot of research is been being done on Visible Light Communication (VLC), which has shown to be of interest for many applications, such as localization. Since localization based on VLC requires active modulation of light sources, this limits the amount of light sources that can be used for localization. Furthermore, in some situations there...

Providing detailed appliance-level energy consumption information helps consumers to understand their usage behavior and encourages them to optimize their energy usage. Non-intrusive load monitoring (NILM) or energy disaggregation aims to estimate appliance-level energy consumption data from the aggregate consumption data of households. NILM...

Nowadays, 19% of the global energy consumption is used for lighting. For this reason, saving energy in lighting is vital. A simple way to save energy is to “simply” turn the lights off, or reduce the amount of light used when nobody is around. This thesis proposes a new method for luminaires to detect the presence of humans and objects which...

The idea of the internet of things (IoT) states that devices with embedded electronics will outnumber the devices operated by humans. All those "things" will require connectivity to exchange information gathered from processed sensor data. A large part of the data will be sent through the air, such that mobile devices can be deployed without a...

Many robotic systems rely on laser ranging sensors to navigate and map their environment. As robots are getting more advanced, smaller and cheaper, their sensors need to decrease in size and cost, while increasing their reliability and accuracy. Current laser-based sensors have difficulty to meet these properties. They are either large,...

Daylighting is the immediate exploitation of solar energy in the form of nat-
ural lighting and plays an integral role in minimizing the energy footprint
of a building. Smart daylighting enables us to design buildings that provide
comfort and energy savings.

This work proposes a dynamic facade system for buildings which aims...

Kitchen is becoming a hotbed for innovation in the Internet of Things (IoT) revolution. Many kitchen appliances are being connected to the Internet to facilitate `smart-cooking'. The appliances are becoming cordless too, i.e., they are being powered by the inductive power sources which are integrated into the kitchen counter-tops. The Wireless...

Our society is becoming more and more dependent on communication networks. Thus, network operators and designers need to properly prepare themselves against large-scale disasters that could take down a significant amount of networking hardware within a large area.

In this work, we consider the vulnerability of a network to disasters,...
