The recent advancement of the autonomous vehicle has raised the need for reliable environmental perception. This is evident, as an autonomous vehicle has to perceive and interpret its local environment in order to execute reactive and predictive control action. Object Tracking is an integral part of vehicle perception, as it enables the vehicle...

Heating, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) units in commercial buildings account for a huge portion of global energy consumption. There is an ever growing need to optimize the energy consumption of an HVAC system along with a system-of-subsystems entity that must be accurately integrated and controlled by the building automation system to...

One of the most crucial links to building an autonomous system is the task of decision making. The ability of a vehicle to make robust decisions on its own by predicting and assessing future consequences is what makes it intelligent. This task of decision making becomes even more complex due to the fact that the real world is uncertain,...

Legged locomotion is an example of a discrete event system (DES) with only synchronization and no concurrency. This particular kind of DES can be framed in max-plus algebra, which consists of maximization and addition as its basic operations. Utilizing the max-plus operations between matrices, max-plus linear (MPL) system is constructed.<br/><br...

The energy demand in current times has increased greatly in last few years. This increasing demand calls for a sustainable and clean energy resource that would reduce the load on non-renewable resources. Wind energy is a renewable resource which is harnessed by mankind from an ancient era. So as to meet this increasing energy demands, innovation...

In high-tech industry (sub)nanometre precision motion control is essential. For example wafer scanners, used for production of integrated circuits, have to provide (sub)nanometre precision positioning whilst satisfying challenging requirements on speed at the same time. It is in demanding cases like this that different requirements begin to...

Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) are unmanned vehicles that operate underwater. These vehicles can be used for various operations, including scanning the ocean floor in order to search for objects. In such operations, the AUV navigates close to the ocean floor, using its sonar systems to map this ocean floor. Before an AUV is launched on a...

One of the phases of the installation of Offshore Wind Turbines is the installation of the foundation for the turbine. Herein, a monopile is one of the most frequently used foundation-types. This monopile is a high steel cylinder, over 60 meters high, which supports the wind turbine to the seabed. Currently, monopiles are lifted with large boom...

The relation between the input of an ideal optical single-mode fiber and the corresponding fiber output constitutes a nonlinear system that can be described using the nonlinear Schrödinger equation. This nonlinear system has the interesting property that it can be solved analytically using nonlinear Fourier transforms. To utilize this property,...

Recently, with the switch to the new generation adaptive optics systems like the VLT and ELT an important identification problem emerged. These telescopes are so-called integrated systems, which means that open-loop calibration of the interaction matrix is not possible anymore. The first and foremost reason for this is that the new generation of...

<br/>In recent years the Tapping Mode-Atomic Force Microscope (TM-AFM) has become one of the most important tools for imaging on the nanometer scale. In comparison with other contemporary technologies, the AFMs have been able to obtain atomic resolution both in high vacuum and liquid environments thus affirming their supremacy. The AFM can be...

In this thesis, a control design problem, in which communication between different elements of the control system takes place through a shared (possibly wireless) channel, is considered. With the implementation of the proposed approach, the use of limited resources such as network bandwidth and battery life may be reduced.<br/><br/>The proposal...

Accessibility of offshore structures is strongly affected by local weather and wave conditions. During rough wave climates, vessel motions prevent people to be transferred safely from and to an offshore structure. To increase accessibility, Ampelmann developed a motion compensating gangway system. The system uses a 6 DoF motion sensor to measure...
