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...

Nature has found many interesting solutions to similar problems that we face with robots. Swarming in robotics is an interesting field to reduce cost and risk, and provide a scalable solution to certain problems. The Zebro Project of the TU Delft performs research in the field of swarm robotics using the six legged robot, called a Zebro. Swarm...

Partial Discharges(PD) are commonly produced in defects within the insulation systems of high voltage equipment. These discharges are typically nanosecond current pulses in the amplitude range of milli-amperes. A long term exposure of the insulation system to these partial discharges accelerate the aging mechanisms that eventually lead to the...

Software-Defined Networking (SDN) potentially can improve the flexibility and management of Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). To investigate the impact of SDN on WSN, in this thesis, we consider three Software-Defined Wireless Sensor Network (SD-WSN) frameworks, namely SDN-WISE, SDWN-ONOS, and TinySDN. After comparing these frameworks, the...

Currently, non-rigid image registration algorithms are too time intensive to use in time-critical applications. To solve this problem, stochastic gradient descent (SGD) has been implemented in image registration. But, SGD depends on manual step size selection which is dicult and time consuming. To avoid such manual selection, SGD has been...

The uprising of Long Range (LoRa) technology for Low-Power Wide Area Network (LPWAN) has gained popularity in IoT applications. As LoRa utilizes the license-free ISM-bands, many network providers have deployed their LoRa networks that adhere to the LoRaWAN specification. With so many deployed networks, it is likely that devices belonging to...

Increasing adoption of EVs in the next few decades is going to present new challenges such as EV charging creating a new and significant demand on the grid. The purpose of this thesis is to create a system that intelligently schedules the charging of EVs while considering the cost of energy and the discomfort of the user. At any given moment, 90...

The use of Light Emitting Diodes (LED) as a main source of illumination
can help in significantly reducing global energy conspumtions. The LED is
well suited for modulating visible light, enabling a wireless communication
channel. A popular topic in Visible Light Communication (VLC) research
is to push data throughput past the...

A pathological tremor is an involuntary and periodic motion of a body part. The detection and quantification of a pathological tremor are essential for diagnosis and therapy. The goal of this research is to detect the frequency of the pathological tremor. Instead of detecting tremors by using a specific medical device, we propose a new...

As technology scaling enters the nanometer regime, device aging effects cause quality and reliability issues in CMOS Integrated Circuits (ICs), which in turn shorten its lifetime. Evaluating system aging through circuit simulations is very complex and time consuming. In this thesis, a framework is proposed, which allows for the evaluation of...

With the arrival of smart electricity meters energy consumption can be monitored continuously and displayed on external devices such as phones or tablets. As a consequence, users become more aware of their energy usage which may result in a reduction in energy consumption. Nevertheless, many countries in Europe still use an analog electricity...

The growth of traffic densities has increased the concentrations of air pollutants, especially in city centres. Although the natural immune system of the human body can withstand low levels of exposure to air pollutants, exposure to high levels of air pollutants can lead to adverse health effects and even death. These high exposure levels are...

In this thesis, we present Cprof+, an upgraded version of Cprof. Cprof+ is a lightweight profiling tool for Polyhedral Process Networks (PPN) that can estimate the performance of a C-program as a PPN implemented in hardware. Cprof+ improves the set of possible programs that can be successfully profiled, by increasing the performance estimation...

The tremendous growth of the Internet brings with it a massive amount of data that users are exposed to on a daily basis. Consequently, information filtering techniques like recommender systems have become increasingly important to sift through the data and find what is relevant to a particular user. A recent approach for recommender systems,...

In event-triggered control (ETC) the control task is only executed when needed to ensure performance or stability. A well known property of ETC is that it can reduce the number of control task executions while retaining similar performance. A large amount of research is focused on how ETC can be used to achieve energy savings in wireless...

Software obfuscation is widely applied to prevent reverse engineering of applications. However, to evaluate security and validate behaviour we are interested in analysis such software. In this thesis, we give an overview of available obfuscation techniques as well as methods to undo this effort through reverse engineering and deobfuscation. We...
