With the ambition of policy makers to encourage a modal shift to rail, an increase in the demand for running trains can be expected. Capacity wise, this increase in demand could be facilitated by applying moving-block signalling. If railway traffic increases however, so does the difficulty of managing it. Rescheduling systems are currently being...

Brackish waters can be found in transition zones between freshwater rivers and saltier seas. These dynamic coastal landscapes harbor multiple functions such as housing, agriculture, nature, and industry. Because of climate change, existing borders between fresh and saline water - and between land and water - are becoming contested. Extreme...

Conventional Air Traffic Control is still predominantly being done by human Air Traffic Controllers, however, as the traffic density increases, the workload of the controllers increases as well. Especially for the area of unmanned aviation, driven by the rise in drones, having human controllers might become unfeasible. One of the methods that...

Recent work on philosophy of technology emphasises the ways in which technology can disrupt our concepts and conceptual schemes. We analyse and challenge existing accounts of conceptual disruption, criticising views according to which conceptual disruption can be understood in terms of uncertainty for conceptual application, as well as views...

Mobility and environmental benefits of Green Light Optimal Speed Advisory (GLOSA) systems have been reported by many previous research studies, however, there is insufficient knowledge on the safety implications of such an application. For safe deployment of GLOSA system, it is most critical to identify and address potential safety issues in...

The Dutch government is targeting substantial growth within the heating sector, with ambitions to double the number of sustainable heat connections for households by 2030 – from 0.5 to 1 million – and eventually reaching 2.5 million connections by 2050. The proposed institutional design outlined in the new Heat Act, also known as the "Wet...

Recent Conflict Early Warning Systems have found little evidence of predictive power of drought indicators for conflict prediction. However, this may result from the context-specificity of the drought-conflict relationship, as stressed in the more recent climate-conflict literature.<br/><br/>The present thesis assesses the local role of...

This paper aims to investigate the effect of conflicting demonstrations on Inverse Reinforcement Learning (IRL). IRL is a method to understand the intent of an expert, by only feeding it demonstrations of that expert, which may be a promising approach for areas such as self driving vehicles, where there are a lot of demonstrations from experts....

A shunting yard is used to store trains between arrival and departure. A conflict arises in a shunting yard when one train obstructs another from leaving. Resolving a conflict is done by re-allocating the trains obstructing the departing train to other tracks in the shunting yard. However, these re-allocations complicate the problem at hand and...

Low-altitude, high-density air traffic is expected to grow in the coming decades with several companies being certified to initiate urban operations for both freight and passenger transport. However, traditional human-centered Air Traffic Control operations (ATCos) are not scalable to handle the increased demand to maintain safe separation...

This thesis evaluates the effects of including automated event data for interstate conflict prediction. Automated event data are web-scraped news stories converted into data and they may allow conflict models to increase their performance. Accurate models can then be used for early-warning purposes.<br/><br/>To predict three separate problems,...
