de Pater, I.I. (author)
Predictive aircraft maintenance is a maintenance strategy that aims to reduce the number of failures, the number of inspections, the number of maintenance tasks and the aircraft maintenance costs. Aircraft are equipped with health monitoring systems, where sensors continuously measure the condition of the aircraft components. In predictive...

Arush, I. (author)
Flight test engineering is an interdisciplinary science that gathers flight-test data and develops methods with the objective of evaluating an aircraft or an airborne system in its operational flight environment. The need for flight testing emanates as a necessary effort that complements ground-based verification activities such as wind-tunnel...

Klomp, R.E. (author)
THE increasing demand in worldwide air travel is foreseen to push the limits of capacity of the current Air TrafficManagement (ATM) system within the coming decade. Therefore, twomajor international programs have been initiated to fundamentally restructure the way in which Air Traffic Control (ATC) is performed. A key pillar in both programs is...

Lee, J. (author)
Current aircraft maintenance ensures safe and reliable flight operations based on inspections repeated at fixed time intervals. The time interval between inspections is often much shorter than the average life of aircraft components, in an effort to timely detect potential failures. While this approach successfully prevents most potential...

Tielrooij, M. (author)
Future concepts for Air Traffic Management (ATM) foresee—and even mandate—an increase in the distance from the destination airport at which the ATM system should start planning the arrival sequence and arrival time of inbound flights. By increasing the horizon beyond one hour before arrival, it becomes possible to timely adjust the flight path...

Klyde, D.H. (author)
From the Wright Flyer to fly-by-wire, the phenomenon of pilot-induced oscillations (PIO) has persisted, evolving with the complexity of the airframes and their associated flight control systems. Though airframe designers have long recognized the threat posed by PIO, each generation has been forced to address the issue whether identified in...

Li, S. (author)
In the last decade, the research field of aerial swarms has grown at a rapid pace. These multi-robot systems possess desirable abilities including mobility in 3D spaces, efficient task execution in parallel, and redundant characteristics for fault tolerance. Many applications with multiple flying robots have already been demonstrated, such as...

Zammit, C. (author)
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are being integrated into all spheres of life, for a wide range of application in civil, commercial and military applications in both indoor and outdoor environments. UAV onboard intelligence is a paramount requirement in the realisation of UAV Traffic Management System (UTM) and Air Traffic Management (ATM)...

Deng, Q. (author)
Aircraft maintenance is the process of overhaul, repair, inspection, or modification of an aircraft or aircraft systems, components, and structures, to keep these in an airworthy condition. Airlines must perform regular maintenance on their fleet to keep their aircraft airworthy and, ultimately, prevent any systems or components failures during...

Grottoli, M. (author)
Driving simulators have been extensively used over the last decades and technological advancements have propelled their development for cars, trucks and other vehicles with four (or more) wheels. This dissertation focuses on the use of driving simulators for two wheeled vehicles and in particular on the development and evaluation of a motorcycle...

Acquatella Bustillo, P.J. (author)
Dynamics modeling, simulation, and control have been studied extensively for many applications in robotics, aeronautics, underwater vehicles, and aerospace vehicles (spacecraft, launchers, re-entry vehicles). In that context, this thesis is motivated from two research directions; namely, space launchers guidance and control (G&C) for...

Cleij, D. (author)
Humans always wanted to go faster and higher than their own legs could carry them, leading them to invent numerous types of vehicles to move fast over land, water and air. As training how to handle such vehicles and testing new developments can be dangerous and costly, vehicle motion simulators were invented. <br/>Motion-based simulators in...

Miletović, I. (author)
Flight simulators, or Flight Simulation Training Devices (FSTDs), offer great benefits in terms of safety and cost associated with pilot training and certification. To warrant uniform certification standards and to prevent adverse pilot training, (sub)system fidelity requirements are imposed by the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA) and European...

Automatically optimizing robotic behavior to solve complex tasks has been one of<br/>the main, long-standing goals of Evolutionary Robotics (ER). When successful, this<br/>approach will likely fundamentally change the rate of development and deployment<br/>of robots in everyday life. Performing this optimization on real robots can be risky<br/...

Wang, Xuerui (author)
The swift growth of air traffic volume stresses the importance of flight safety enhancement. Statistical data shows that fly-by-wire technology with automatic flight control systems can effectively reduce the fatal accident rate of loss of control in-flight. Although the dynamics of an aircraft are nonlinear and time-varying, it is common...

At present, the rapid development of automation technologies allows robots remarkable precision and endurance, as well as the strength in accomplishing repetitive tasks. Despite this, manual control is still indispensable in many domains where robots and humans play complementary roles, as humans demonstrate superior competence in improvisation...

Zhang, Y. (author)
Among all the contributors to fatal accidents, in-flight loss of control (LOC-I) remains one of the largest categories, as indicated by statistics of investigations into past civil aircraft accidents. In flight LOC generally refers to accidents in which the flight crew was unable to maintain control of the aircraft in flight, resulting in an...

Huang, Y. (author)
In advanced robotic applications such as robotic locomotion, vehicle and flight simulators, and material test devices, there are higher requirements on stiffness, robustness and power ability for the mechanical structure and the actuator. Hence, it is common for such applications to use parallel manipulators and hydraulic actuators, due to their...
