Automatically optimizing robotic behavior to solve complex tasks has been one of
the main, long-standing goals of Evolutionary Robotics (ER). When successful, this
approach will likely fundamentally change the rate of development and deployment
of robots in everyday life. Performing this optimization on real robots can be risky

Malicious software such as botnets are a threat to society and increasingly so through Internet of Things (IoT) devices. The large volume, pervasiveness and high vulnerability of IoT devices make them low hanging fruit for malicious actors. Currently, the biggest threat for insecure IoT devices is Mirai, a botnet which is deployed for DDoS...

Glass is a material with high potentiality in a structural application. Brittleness has always been challenging for glass structure. Recyclability is also challenging for the current glass application since the chemical bonding is contaminating the recipe. Interlocking cast glass construction offers an interesting bypass to solve these two...

Residential self-selection is a well-recognized potential bias in estimating the true effects of the built environment on travel behavior. A popular method to account for residential self-selection is by including people's attitudes towards various modes as additional control variables in the regression. Yet, while attitudes may indeed...

Even though both the number and the size of tall building developments are increasing, tall building economics remain understudied. The goal of the research is to study developer behavior regarding height premiums in residential tall buildings. Literature offers little knowledge on developers’ behavior when it comes to height premiums in the...

At present, the rapid development of automation technologies allows robots remarkable precision and endurance, as well as the strength in accomplishing repetitive tasks. Despite this, manual control is still indispensable in many domains where robots and humans play complementary roles, as humans demonstrate superior competence in improvisation...

Pilots’ manual flying skills have notably reduced due to the increase in flight deck automation over the last decades. This has resulted in a growing concern that today pilots lack the skills to safely and successfully prevent or recover from unexpected aircraft upset events or to take over controls after a sudden transition to manual flying....

Being mindful in the evening is overlooked for sleep-deprived parents with young children, especially with tv's and smartphones grabbing their attention. This graduation project explored in the context of personal energy care to unlock evenings for parents and found out that mindful and secular rituals can energize them. The core elements of a...

Haptic feedback on the side stick has been used in previous research on assisting pilots in recognising flight envelope limits. Pilots indicated, however, that it was not always clear what the haptics were trying to tell them, leading to a lower system acceptance. This paper describes the design and evaluation of a visual display in...

Air pollution is a widely accepted problem in today’s world. Nine out of ten people does not breathe healthy air due to rapid urbanization and human activities that cause increased severe air pollution. Over the years people have had a tendency to comfort themselves with everything they need inside. However, they may not be aware that the amount...

This exploration study focuses on the braking behaviour of World Tour cyclists during a descent. For this study, 8 riders descended over 6 trials using a ‘sensor bike’. As part of this particular study, a novel brake sensor is developed and validated in practice. The sensor package can be transferred between bicycles, allowing each rider to use...

Little is known about how renewable energy cooperatives (REScoops) try to influence energy conservation among households and the resulting impact. In this article the main research question is: What is the predictive value of renewable energy cooperatives on intention to save energy, engagement in energy-saving actions, and self-reported energy...

To realize the shift towards a Circular Economy, products should stay usable as long as possible. Maintaining products is the most efficient way of retaining their desired level of performance. This is called Product care. Product care can be understood as any action that helps to prolong the lifetime of a product. The aim of this thesis is to...

Introduction: Behavioral health risk factors are major causes of morbidity and mortality worldwide. The four main risk factors, the so-called SNAP-factors, relate to smoking, nutrition, alcohol consumption and physical inactivity. A consistent finding in health research is that these behaviors tend to cluster together, thereby resulting in...

A lot of concrete structuressufferingfrom ASR show a decrease in material properties. However, it is not clear what might be the influence of ASR on structural behavior. Influence of restraint is often ignored in material property measurement, while reinforcement is present as a restraint of ASR expansion in most structures.Thisresults in so...

Feedback systems with direct feedback have shown to be effective in stimulating households to change their energy consumption levels. This research is one of the first to explore the use of apps to influence household energy use. Compared to dedicated in-home displays, smartphone/tablet apps provide a low-cost and simple design solution for...

Since the introduction of the Automatic Identification System (AIS), AIS data has proven to be a valuable source of ship behavior analysis using data mining. It records ship position, speed and other behavior attributes at specific time intervals in all voyages at sea and in ports. However, the current studies in ship behavior analyze the...

Studies of termite mound building have considered the mud they prepare, its properties and its composition. Here we consider the behaviors of the mound building termites Macrotermes michaelseni, (Sjostedt), in the presence of the viscous boundary layer (VBL), which spontaneously forms over any surface that air passes over. We looked how soil...
