The small and lightweight Lunar Zebro rover must survive in the harsh lunar environment for several Earth days following its moon landing. The mission of the rover is to map the radiation environment on the moon. The success of the entire mission depends on the Power Electronic System (PES), which supplies power to all subsystems and charges the...

Single-photon detection is a critical step in both quantum computing and quantum information technology. For instance, the measurement of qubit states and the establishment of entanglement in nitrogen vacancy (NV) center quantum computing requires the detection of single photons. Superconducting nanowire single-photon detectors (SNSPDs) are very...

The problem of finding a target and forming a path to it is known and is well-explored in the field of swarm robotics. Using swarm intelligence, even swarms of simple robots are capable of solving this problem. However, often these works assume that two robots can perceive each other can physically reach each other, or that robots can detect any...

We present a computationally cheap 3D bug algorithm for drones, using stereo vision. Obstacle avoidance is important, but difficult for robots with limited resources, such as drones. Stereo vision requires less weight and power than active distance measurement sensors, but typically has a limited Field of View (FoV). In addition, the stereo...

A miniaturized instrument was developed to enable in-situ measurements of the radiation environment at the Moon. The instrument is designated to function as the science payload for the first mission of the Lunar Zebro nano-rover. Characterization and testing of the Floating Gate Dosimeter (FGDOS) was advanced with an emphasis on its utilization...

With the advancement in technology, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) have been able to safely maneuver in risky environments. During landing, the UAV should be able to slow down while not affecting its physical design. Currently, multiple sensors are being used to increase the accuracy while landing which might weigh down some of the smaller UAVs...

Hexapod robots are becoming increasingly popular for navigating and exploring irregular and inhospitable environments. The Lunar Zebro is such a hexapod robot that has been developed to be the lightest and smallest rover to explore the moon. The purpose of the Lunar Zebro is to navigate the surface of the moon where it will encounter difficult...

The earplug development followed by ALPINE, a hearing protection company is a trial and error method. This method leads to high material wastage. It is also a time-consuming and expensive development process. So, the objective of this thesis is to ease the error earplug development process by implementing a prediction model. The research is...

Autonomous agents are the future of many services and industries such as delivery systems, surveillance and monitoring, and search and rescue missions. An important aspect in an autonomous agent is the navigation system it uses to traverse the environment. Not much emphasis has been paid in the past on autonomous agent navigation in cluttered...

Manufacturers of CubeSats prefer the use of COTS electronic components such as microcontrollers (MCU) and SDRAM but these components are vulnerable to errors caused by radiation. A specific type of error caused by radiation are soft errors which can be corrected by Error Detection and Correction (EDAC) methods. Unfortunately, it is uncommon for...

Labour in the agricultural sector is in short supply, while a large portion of the work is still being done manually. To speed up the work and guarantee the food supply of the future, Lely has started a project on agricultural automation. The aim of the project is to create a robot that can perform multiple repetitive tasks simultaneously, to...

There is a need for environmental sustainability also beyond the atmosphere: Human activities are causing a tragedy of the commons in outer space, and most of the world population does not know anything about it. Outer space has become a non-cooperative game for a few players with infinite resources, in an environment with limited resources. The...

Remotely controlled vehicles have gained increased interest and application, like the exploration of inhospitable environments. To this end hexapods with C-shape locomotors are particularly suitable because these vehicles possess both the efficiency of wheels and the climbing capabilities of legged robots. Currently all C-legged hexapods are...

Robotic agents can continuously provide feedback to people based on their behaviors. For instance, a robot swarm can remind a group of people to respect social distancing guidelines during a pandemic or discourage unwanted behavior such as littering. However, developing a swarm robot to operate in realistic situations is challenging: a robot...

The need to understand how the brain works has sparked interest in electrode arrays to record neural signals. Intracellular recordings with nanoelectrodes that penetrate the cell allow better signal quality and additional functions such as voltage clamping to set the neuron's transmembrane voltage. The voltage clamp aims to facilitate the...
