Electric Vehicles (EVs) are considered a promising solution when it comes to reducing CO2 emissions in the transport sector. To accommodate for large numbers of EVs, a considerable amount of additional charging infrastructure must be installed. Simultaneous charging of large quantities of EVs leads to peak loads in the energy grid. One way to...

Labour market economics has been gaining more and more attention over the years, due to increasing job insecurity. There is a growing demand for the improvement of labour market models. Labour market models are representations of the labour market system used to provide insight to the effects of government policy. Current labour market models...

Objects floating on or near the water surface (e.g. vessels, and floating wind-turbines) suffer from motions induced by waves of varying height, direction, and frequency. This not only causes unpleasantness for passengers and crew of ships but also it limits the accessibility to the offshore platforms. Bosch Rexroth with their partner Barge...

The Utility Lagrangian and the Surplus Hamiltonian in economic engineering do not depend on consumption.<br/>Two theories are proposed to include the effect of consumption in the Utility Lagrangian and the Surplus Hamiltonian. The second of these two theories resolves the dissipation obstacle in port-Hamiltonian systems as an additional result....

A repetitive motion system supporting nano meter precision is positioned at high accelerations, which produces a force that disturbs the demanded accuracy requirements. Iterative learning control is used to learn optimal feedforward control signals for the attenuation this disturbance force. The iterative method comes with a limitation, as it...

Aerial cinematography has seen an increased use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) due to technological advancements and commercialisation in recent years. The operation of such a robot can be complex and requires a dedicated person to control it. Automation of the cinematography allows for the use of multiple robots, which further increases the...

The startup company Fleet Cleaner has developed a mobile robot, specialized in the hull cleaning of large cargo vessels. Navigation and localization of this robot is currently performed manually. This is a difficult process that is greatly complicated during operation. This is mainly due to the availability of relative positioning sensors only,...

: Tooth extraction is one of the most common procedures in oral surgery. However, it is complicated as well as not fully understood. Different teeth have different structures and strengths. Even teeth of the same type differ depending on ages, genders, races, and other reasons affecting its integrity. During the procedure, the properties of the...

The thesis contributes to the pre-collision strategies of robot manipulators by proposing a real-time implementable collision avoidance scheme. The collision is avoided by a braking controller that is activated by a braking trajectory predictor. The predictor provides distances of the end-effector to the object/human in the environment and...

As a component of Dutch Automatic Vehicle Initiative (DAVI) project, this study aims at improving highway driving safety of autonomous vehicle. It is observed that some misbehaved drivers do not use turn indicators forehead a lane change on highway. For a self-driving car in such situations, a lane change is potentially dangerous without an...
