The Rhine River distributes water to more than 60 million residents, vital industries, and important agricultural sites across a total of eight countries. However, due to climate change, the availability of water resources has become increasingly dependent on seasonal supply and internal distribution (UNESCO, 2009). Moreover, extended periods of...

Immersive technologies are redefining user interactions in the evolving digital landscape, promising deeper and almost physical digital experiences (Alpers et al., 2020). Concurrently, the mobility world is undergoing a paradigm shift, with an emphasis on advanced autonomous solutions. Such autonomy enables users to reclaim and repurpose their...

While robots and automation in general have been replacing humans in repetitive and routine labour for many years, the role of AI is considered to develop from mere tools to integral teammates. However, recent developments in artificial intelligence (AI) are redefining the role of AI from being mere tools to becoming...

This graduation project investigates the relationship between care and community and reflects on the possible impact of these learnings on design practice. Care is a complex dimension of life, which entails the act of providing everything that is necessary for the maintenance and repair of the world (Tronto, 1993). From this perspective, we can...

The goal of this thesis is to develop a ROS package that facilitates the control and navigation of a Duckiebot robot. With the rise of robot swarms the need for autonomous charging system for robots is increasing. An implementation for decentralised autonomous behaviour for a Duckiebot for a wireless charging system in a Duckietown environment...

Psychiatric clinics where patients live are only used when the patient cannot<br/>live on their own anymore. Stays are kept as short as possible and patients are<br/>stimulated to reintegrate and live on their own again (GGZ Noord-Holland-<br/>Noord, n.d.). For patients with the prospect of moving out again, this now often<br/>fails, because the...

Youth care has undergone a significant transformation in 2015. Secure residential youth care is one of the areas that is currently experiencing difficulties as a result. Research has shown that the conditions in secure facilities often negatively affect the residents. Furthermore, young adults often find it difficult to adjust to independence...

Nowadays, Human Autonomy Teams (HATs) are incorporated in many fields, where humans and autonomous agents work collaboratively to combine their capabilities with the ultimate goal of performing tasks more efficiently. In such environments, it is imperative to sustain a high level of trust between the agents as collaboration is not possible...

The mobility world is changing due to demographic transformations, sustainability challenges, and technological advancements. Consumers and governments seek sustainable and inclusive mobility solutions that cause less environmental strain, less noise pollution, and safer traffic. The mobility solutions must combine into a coherent platform for...

Autonomous navigation of Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) in dynamic and unknown environments is a complex and challenging task. Current works rely on assumptions to solve the problem. The MAV's pose is precisely known, the dynamic obstacles can be explicitly segmented from static ones, their number is known and fixed, or they can be modeled with...

We present a novel framework for formal control of uncertain discrete-time switched stochastic systems against probabilistic reach-avoid specifications. In particular, we consider stochastic systems with additive noise, whose distribution lies in an ambiguity set of distributions that are ε−close to a nominal one according to the Wasserstein...

The present chapter analyses the complex ways in which driving automation affects human autonomy with the aim of raising awareness on the design and policy challenges that must be faced to effectively align future transportation systems to this ethical value. Building on the European report Ethics of Connected and Automated Vehicles, we consider...

In this paper, we examine the epistemological and ontological assumptions algorithmic hiring assessments make about job seekers’ attributes (e.g., competencies, skills, abilities) and the ethical implications of these assumptions. Given that both traditional psychometric hiring assessments and algorithmic assessments share a common set of...

In just a few years, the issue of “digital sovereignty” has emerged as an important security issue for governments across the globe, reflecting a growing unease about the security risks associated with government services that depend on foreign service providers for digital infrastructure and traffic routing. This work investigates to which...

Increased demand for less invasive procedures has accelerated the adoption of Intraluminal Procedures (IP) and Endovascular Interventions (EI) performed through body lumens and vessels. As navigation through lumens and vessels is quite complex, interest grows to establish autonomous navigation techniques for IP and EI for reaching the target...

A wall is both a barrier and an opportunity. The ancient walls of Thessaloniki stand as a monument to this. Since their establishment in the 4th century their status and significance in the city has only grown. Thessaloniki was a trading town strategically placed on a hill overlooking the bay below. As it grew, so did the walls with them...

This thesis set out to explore the meaning of autonomy and use this knowledge to create a tool for designers to communicate the complexity of the concept with their clients. In today’s society, we value autonomy and we strive to ensure that everyone can lead their life as autonomous as possible. In fact, we view autonomy as ultimate independence...

In recent years, there is a growing interest in small satellites for deep space exploration. The current approach for planetary navigation is based on ground-based radiometric tracking. A new era of low-cost small satellites for space exploration will require autonomous deep space navigation. This will decrease the reliance on ground-based...
