The emergence of connected and automated vehicles (CAVs) could have a significant impact on traffic efficiency and safety. The effects of CAVs in regular highway traffic are relatively well represented in scientific research. How these effects change in exceptional situations, such as work zones, and how the infrastructure can influence these...

The testing of quantum applications can be approached from three perspectives. The first one concerns the certification of the accuracy of the quantum device where the application is run. The second one has to do with the classical verification of the result output by the application. Yet a third one addresses the problem from the software...

Automated vehicles with conditional driving automation (SAE level 3 (SAE, 2018)) will request the human driver to intervene when reaching its system boundaries by issuing a take-over request (TOR). This study is investigating whether a speech-based auditory take-over request is influencing the time it takes from automated to manual driving,...

The development of automated vehicles on the road is in full swing. As vehicles are getting increasingly automated, the human factor is diminished or eventually removed from automated driving. Until then, a combination of human input and automation is necessary during automated driving. This research focuses on the interaction between humans and...

Due to the increase of global containerized trade and container vessel sizes, the necessity of container terminal development is unavoidable. On the other hand, designing a container terminal is a very complex process, and on a concept design phase, a quick assessment for the design alternatives should be done in a limited time, cost, and effort...

This thesis presents the design of a performance prediction simulation model for an ship-to-shore crane. Current STS crane models do not take new trends in container terminal operations into account like automation. These models do not predict the performance accurately. This can lead to logistical and financial <br/>consequences. Automation...

Q\&amp;A fora have developed into a precious tool for online knowledge exchange. Being community-driven, openly accessible and free, getting an answer to a complicated question can nowadays be a matter of minutes. This research investigates the specific case of gis.stackexchange, a technical Q&amp;A forum used by Geographic Information Systems...

The work processes of structural engineers have been changing over the last decades. Digitalisation and automation play an important role in this change. One of the major developments in this context has been the introduction of Building Information Modelling (BIM). In a BIM model the geometry of the actual building is represented. To this...

The advent of a society in which autonomous technology coexists with humans is an inevitability. The project focuses on one such autonomous technology in the form of autonomous vehicles or self driving cars. The benefits of such automation is well documented in academia and is supported by the investment by some of the biggest automobile and...

In this thesis, we consider the problem of controlling multiple autonomous vehicles in a highway scenario, via MPC. By iteratively solving a motion planning OCP, MPC is perfectly suited for unknown dynamic environments, while optimally computing path and vehicle inputs. Moreover, MPC can ensure the satisfaction of collision avoidance constraints...

Today market success and competitive advantage depends on information, and the proper flow of information using information technologies is critical to maintain competitive advantage. To improve their business processes and networks, organizations need to leverage new information systems/information technologies (IS/IT). These new IT systems,...

Fully automated vehicles have the potential to increase road safety and improve traffic flow by taking the human element out of the driving loop. They can also provide mobility to people who are unable to operate a conventional vehicle. Safe automated vehicles must be able to respond in emergency situations or drive on slippery roads in bad...

Human induced pluripotent stem cells (hiPSCs) offer the possibility to model human disease and study their behavior. They help scientists discover early disease-causing events in cells and are therefore used in discoveries about premature aging, congenital heart disease, cancer, and disorders connected to fetal development. Because of their...

In the current breakwater design process, not all feasible concepts can be explored due to time constraints. However, designers are also influenced by breakwaters constructed near, or at the same location as their breakwater project. But also conservative assumptions influence the breakwater design process, for instance, regarding the wave...

In this thesis we consider multiple Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) navigating a common workspace to fulfill intralogistics tasks, typically formulated as the Multi-Agent Path Finding (MAPF) problem. To keep plan execution deadlock-free, one approach is to construct an Action Dependency Graph (ADG) which encodes the ordering of AGVs as they...

System Dynamics (SD) is an approach to study the nonlinear behaviour of complex systems over time. SD models provide a high­level understanding of the system and aid in designing policies to achieve specific system behaviours. Conventional SD modelling requires an intensive amount of time, human resources and effort. Applying Machine Learning ...

Systematic literature reviews in software engineering as well as other disciplines, serve as the foundation for sound scientific research. The aim for these literature reviews is to aggregate all existing knowledge on a research problem and produce informed guidelines for practitioners. This enables practitioners to apply appropriate software...

Human Machine Interface (HMI) is a design concept that improves the interaction between the driver and the automated vehicle, which leads to greater safety and comfort for the driver and greater safety for the road user. Therefore, many papers and patents are published every year. Many papers use different methodologies and materials due to some...

Due to the Internet, and more importantly its interfaces we carry, we have gained freedom to do whatever, wherever, whenever. All the fields of interaction with the Internet are called the Interface in this research. The Interface automates human actions. In many aspects of life, automation by the Interface has an impact. In this research, it is...

While technological development and the rising Second Machine Age are already firmly affecting the notion of labour and the consequent disposition of our cities and territories, the remote island of Hammerfest, in the Arctic regions of Finnmark, prefigures the conditions for a radical rebirth. The full extents of automation, resulting in a post...
