Context - The development of urban icons has become a popular strategy for municipalities to reach envisioned spillover effects, e.g. by boosting the urban image or by functioning as a catalyst in the regeneration of an urban area. These iconic developments are not rarely associated with high public investments, which often tend to be...

Generative adversarial networks (GANs) are a class of generative models, for which the goal is to learn from training data and then to generate data with similar characteristics. Despite the wide use of GANs, a quantitative evaluation method of their performance is lacking. In the current work, we invented a series of artificial datasets,...

A sit-snowboard is a weight supporting mechanism that allows people with lower extremity impairments to perform the sport of snowboarding. Comfort and control of the Twinrider (the only sit-snowboard on the market) are insufficient for advanced riders who reach higher speeds and ride more bumpy slopes. The goal of this study...

Body weight support (BWS) systems are widely used in gait rehabilitation. These systems allow patients to gradually increase training intensity and promote independent walking. Currently, there is no standardized method to assess the performance of BWS systems. This work proposes methods and metrics that can be used to assess and compare any...

With increase in the number of sensors installed on sub-assemblies of industrial components, the amount of data collected is rapidly increasing. These data hold information in the areas of operation of the system and evolution of health condition of the components. Therefore, extracting the knowledge from the data can bring about significant...

In order to be accepted by negotiating parties, negotiation protocols need to be fair and unbiased. We extend the bilateral turn-taking negotiation protocol to multiparty multilateral turn-taking peer negotiation protocols maintaining its fairness properties. We define the de- sign space of such protocols and capture the design decisions that go...

Gaps and overlaps between pre-preg plies represent common flaws in composite materials that can be introduced easily in an automated fibre placement manufacturing process and are potentially detrimental for the mechanical performances of the final laminates. Whereas gaps and overlaps have been addressed for full composite material, the topic...

The objectives of open government data initiatives range from enhancing transparency and accountability to increasing innovation and participation. However, there is a lack of knowledge of the extent to which the objectives of open government data initiatives are achieved. This article investigates the relationship between the objectives of open...

Living labs, as a methodology to enhance user-centric innovation, have large potentials in bringing inventions to the marketplace, but their performance can benefit more from evaluation. This article develops a novel framework for evaluation of living labs, including (1) a system approach providing an analytical view on living labs’...

Design fixation experiments often report that participants exposed to an example solution generate fewer ideas than those who were not. This reduced ‘idea fluency’ is generally explained as participants’ creativity being constrained by the example they have seen. However, the inclusion of an example also introduces other factors that might...

A revised pilot oxygen mask design was developed for better fit to the Korean Air Force pilots’ faces. The present study compared an existing pilot oxygen mask and a prototype of the revised mask design with 88 Korean Air Force pilots in terms of subjective discomfort, facial contact pressure, and slip distance on the face in high gravity....

Electrical power system monitoring, protection, operation, and control schemes are undergoing significant changes toward the next generation fully automated, resilient, and self-healing grids. At present, there still exists a lack of available user-friendly tools for the synchronized measurement technology supported application design. This...

The profusion of information technology has created new possibilities for local communities to self-organize and respond to disruptive events. Along with the opportunities, there is also a series of challenges that need to be addressed in order to improve societal resilience. One of these challenges is to make sense of the continuous stream of...

Alternatives to CMOS logic circuit implementations are under research for future scaled electronics. Memristor crossbar-based logic circuit is one of the promising candidates to at least partially replace CMOS technology, which is facing many challenges such as reduced scalability, reliability, and performance gain. Memristor crossbar offers...

LEDs in our buildings, vehicles, and consumer products are rapidly gaining visible light communication capabilities. LED links however are notorious for being unreliable: shadowing, blockage, mobility, external light, all of these issues
can disrupt the connectivity easily. Therefore, unless a reliable and cost-efficient data link layer is...

In this paper, we present a method for evaluating the performance of railway crossing rails after long-term service. The method includes 1) 3D profile and hardness measurements; 2) finite element simulation of wheel/rail interaction; and 3) numerical prediction of rail degradation. We conducted a case study on a crossing that had been in service...

The goal of this paper is to evaluate from a multi-objective perspective the performance on the detection of catenary support components when using state-of-the-art deep convolutional neural networks (DCNNs). The detection of components is the first step towards a complete automatized monitoring system that will provide actual information about...

Gaps in pre-preg plies, in a case when adjacent plies do not align perfectly, may represent a significant issue in an automated fibre placement manufacturing process and can be detrimental to the properties of the final laminates. In order to tackle the consequences of gaps in the composite material, a comprehensive research has to be performed....

In this study the spatial distribution of dissolved metals in surface water is studied at nine locations in Lake Ketelmeer (the Netherlands). The measured dissolved metal concentrations are combined with the local water quality parameters for salinity, pH, alkalinity and DOC to calculate a FIAM Free Ion Activity Model (FIAM) and the Biotic...

The question 'Can big data and HPC infrastructure converge?' has important implications for many operators and clients of modern computing. However, answering it is challenging. The hardware is currently different, and fast evolving: big data uses machines with modest numbers of fat cores per socket, large caches, and much memory, whereas HPC...
