A variable speed AC motor drive, fed by a 3-phase AC supply, often consists of a 3-phase bridge diode rectifier, a DC link capacitor and a pulse width modulated inverter. Recently, a new type of capacitor known as film capacitor or slim capacitor has become popular for use in DC link. This capacitor has a lower value of capacitance and a longer...

In the automotive industry automation is popular and every year car OEMs advance their technology to be able to drive autonomously. Longitudinal control of the vehicles is an important part of the complete autonomous driving system. The difficulty of this control problem lies with changing longitudinal dynamics and the lack of full-state system...

To be able to understand the dynamic driving environment, an autonomous vehicle needs to predict the mo- tion of other traffic participants in the driving scene. Motion prediction can be done based on experience and recently observed series of past events, and entails reasoning about probable outcomes with these past ob- servations. Aspects that...

Merging is one of the most demanding tasks for a truck driver due to the size, weight and limited visual clearance of a truck. Automating the merging procedure can be the solution for a considerable number of accidents by removing the human factor. People have accepted the risk they are in when driving or being driven but acceptance of automated...

While touch Interfaces have greatly improved the user friendliness and functional possibilities of devices, haptic feedback has been lacking in user interface design. Good Haptic feedback not only gives confirmation of a key press, but also enriches the user interaction and improves the usability of interfaces.
This absence of haptic...

The technological advancements in the automotive industry have enabled the automation of numerous routine driving tasks. As a result, the art of driving has become a control task with a strong supervisory character, including the common human factor issues. Haptic Shared Control has been shown to be useful in keeping the driver in-the-loop by...

Self-driving cars is considered the next major step in the automotive industry and with automation in passenger vehicles, the driver can benefit from the freed up time for leisure or work, as he or she becomes the passenger. However, this is only possible if the drivers are comfortable during automated driving. The major issue here, is that the...

This report contains a design proposal for a 2035 Porsche sports car vision. The vision is a reaction on a future mobility paradigm shift towards fully automated transportation (Autonomous level 5). The majority of today’s car owners are convenience driven. These type of drivers have what is referred to as a ‘rational’ way of thinking about...

Pile driving can cause plastic deformation to the head of the driven pile, which in turn can lead to connectivity issues when the superstructure is installed. Moreover, plastic deformation reduces the estimated service life of the structure. Therefore, it is necessary to monitor the strain levels during the installation in order to detect if the...

Robot Care Systems (RCS) is involved in the development of the WEpod, an autonomous shuttle which can transfer up to six people. Based on a predefined map of the environment, the shuttle is able to navigate through mixed traffic its perception sensors such as camera, radar and lidar sensors. This study is acquired in collaboration with RCS and...

Drivers continuously adapt to the different needs and constraints in the driving scene. Literature has provided evidence for two adaptation strategies in response to an increased risk (decreasing the road width or increasing the driving speed) while lane keeping: decreasing driving speed and increasing endpoint arm stiffness. However, so far...

Over the past years, the automotive industry has seen a constantly increasing level of automation of automotive vehicles. This increasing level of automation contributes to an increasing safety in traffic and a reduction of traffic congestions due tio faster response times and higher reliability, with respect to the human driver. The automation...

As you well know we are entering a new era. An era in which more and more things are becoming smart including the cars that we see around us. This technology will soon bring us new services like car- and ridesharing with autonomous capabilities. Big brands like Renault and Audi expect self-driving cars on the road around 2022. Nevertheless, a...

In the past few years, the research and development of automated driving have made significant leaps in bringing theory into reality. Forecasts suggest that highly automated vehicles (SAE Level 4) may be on the streets and highways within the next decade. However, current road infrastructure is designed for human drivers, and may not be able to...

In recent years, electrical vehicle (EV) starts showing its unique advantages that the conventional combustion vehicles do not have. Together with the increasing interests on EV, the motor drive with higher efficiency and lighter weight also becomes more attractive. To reduce the time and cost for the development, the project is aiming for the...

Lateral acceleration is a key aspect of the vehicle response perceived by the driver. Assistance systems such as Active Rear Steering (ARS) or Torque Vectoring (TV) are developed to modify the lateral acceleration response such that the vehicle has an improved stability and an extended linear handling region. With this extended linear handling...

Driving with Haptic Shared Control (HSC) provides an alternative for traditional traded control in human-controller interaction. Whilst driving, control is shared between the driver and the controller by translating the controller's desired steering input to additional torques on the steering wheel.
Literature provides several guidelines for...

Monopiles will be installed in more difficult terrain since space in the 'ideal' locations is reduced by the rapidly increasing development of wind farms in the ideal areas. In difficult terrain, the amount of obstacles or hard layers increase, leading to an increased risk of pile tip damage. Also the ever increasing D/t ratio of the pile leads...
