Nano quadcopters are ideal for gas source localization (GSL) as they are cheap, safe and agile. However, previous algorithms are unsuitable for nano quadcopters, as they rely on heavy sensors, require too large computational resources, or only solve simple scenarios without obstacles. In this work, we propose a novel bug algorithm named `Sniffy...

In the recent years the satellite industry has progressed on the subject of optical communication for use in space. With recorded speeds over 5 Gb/s it has shown to be an alternative for radio communication. In the CubeSat market this technology is new, underdeveloped, and could lead to new missions that were not possible before. As such, TNO...

We consider a system of IoT nodes powered completely by energy harvesting.This work focuses on achieving the time correlation of data measurements ina network of energy harvesting sensor nodes. Time correlation is achieved byhopping a message through the whole network. This message wakes up all thenodes and lets them perform a measurement....

Multi-Agent Systems (MAS) can be used in the exploration and mapping of unknown environments. To cooperate autonomously, each agent of the MAS must know its own location precisely within such an environment. Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) techniques are commonly used when the Global Positioning System (GPS) is unavailable or does...

The last years there is a wide interest in UAVs which can be attributed to their low cost and wide range of use in recreational, commercial and scientific applications. Despite the large increase in drones, UAV flights are permitted only in secluded areas. In order to be granted access to public areas, it must prove its capacity to sense and...

As the new space movement develops, so comes the request for cheaper space solar panels with a shorter delivery time. This master thesis investigates the possibilities of using a Semi-flexible terrestrial solar panel in a low Earth orbit space environment. A Semi-flexible solar panel is a sandwich of polymer films with the solar cells in between...

Underwater robots are widely used in various operations below the surface of the sea. In many of these operations the precise localization and positioning is quite important, especially in cases that the robot must navigate between man-made installations. Although underwater vehicles can carry a number of different sensors, many of them can not...

Motion planning for Autonomous Ground Vehicles (AGVs) in dynamic environments is an extensively studied and complex problem. State of the art methods provide approximate solutions that make conservative assumptions to provide safety and feasibility. We aim to outperform current methods by following a trajectory optimization-based approach,...

In this paper a range-based relative localization solution is proposed and demonstrated in practice. The approach is based on wireless range measurements between robots, along with the communication of their velocities, accelerations, yaw rates, and height. It can be implemented on many robotic platforms without the need for dedicated sensors....

Biofuel sensors for measuring the ethanol and gasoline concentrations in bio-ethanol blends, have been studied world-wide and currently used in engine management in Flex-Fuel cars fabricated by amongst others, Ford Motor Company. However, water that results from ethanol sugar cane is inevitable present in the ethanol blend and requires a sensor...

The objective of this MSc thesis was to design a miniaturised Raman spectrometer that can be used in terrestrial deep ice applications of the IceMole probe. This probe is a manoeuvrable subsurface system for clean in situ analysis and sampling, developed at FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences since 2008, that is now part of a bigger DLR...

The growing needs of nano- and pico-satellite missions require several enhancements in micro-propulsion capabilities to enable the satellites to perform an increasing variety of orbital maneuvers. Among them, the possibility to accurately control the thrust would open up new scenarios for nano- and pico-satellites applicability to include, for...
