Flying characteristics of a multi-engined light general aviation (GA) aircraft during and after an engine failure is often a major safety consideration when both designing and operating the aircraft. In the meantime, the propellers, being large rotating masses, can exert considerable gyroscopic effect on the aircraft during flight, itself...

Falling is a major cause of morbidity, and is often caused by a decrease in postural stability. A key component of postural stability is whole-body centroidal angular momentum, which can be influenced by control moment gyroscopes. In this proof-of-concept study, we explore the influence of our wearable robotic gyroscopic actuator “GyroPack” on...

Testing the aerodynamics of micro-UAVs (mUAVs) and nano-UAVs (nUAVs) without actually flying is highly challenging. To address this issue, we introduce Open Gimbal, a specially designed 3 degrees of freedom (DoF) platform that caters to the unique requirements of mUAVs and nUAVs. This platform allows for unrestricted and free rotational...

The combination of the high number and the consequences of falls in older adults led to the development of fall risk assessments; non-sensor-based and sensor-based. Multiple studies used ML for older adults' fall risk prediction using raw IMU data. This study's objective was to develop a DL algorithm that predicts the fall risk of people living...

Reaction wheels are often the main contributor to microvibrations on satellites. These vibrations are a source of pointing errors and therefore need to be limited as much as possible. The miniaturization trend in the space industry and universities fostered the production of very small reaction wheels, suited to Cubesat and PocketQube scales. A...

On May 22, 2018, the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment Follow On (GRACE-FO) mission was launched with the goal to map the spatiotemporal variations in the Earth's gravity field and to extend the 15-year monthly mass change observations of its predecessor, the GRACE mission. Similarly to GRACE, the measurement principle of GRACE-FO is based...

The goal for this paper is to find out what the smart badge provided by the Social Perceptive Computive Lab (SPCL) group is and what it contains. The sensors that are used in the smart badge are the Accelerometer, Gyroscope and Magnetometer. The main question of this paper is ”What is the benefit of using full 9-DOF IMU data in predicting...

Control of systems with operating condition-dependent dynamics, including control moment gyroscopes (CMGs), often requires operating condition-dependent controllers to achieve high control performance. The aim of this brief is to develop a frequency response data-driven linear parameter-varying (LPV) control design approach for single-input...

A ground vibration test was conducted with a 1:3 scaled Diana 2 glider model where the modal parameters were estimated using the accelerometers, gyroscopes and strain gauges integrated in the test aircraft and validated using externally attached calibrated accelerometers and commercial software. These modal parameters were then used to update...

Due to the ever increasing demand of energy and the urgency in which this has to be produced using renewable energy resources the request for offshore wind farms is larger than ever. As a result of the competitive nature of the energy sector it is important to keep the cost of energy low in order to keep an edge over the competition. Therefore,...

Stumbling during gait is commonly encountered in patients who suffer from mild to serious walking problems, e.g., after stroke, in osteoarthritis, or amputees using a lower leg prosthesis. Instead of self-reporting, an objective assessment of the number of stumbles in daily life would inform clinicians more accurately and enable the evaluation...

Though NanoSats are becoming increasingly capable of featuring active payloads, and acquiring inertial data at arcsec level precision; the payload operational duty-cycle largely remains limited by its data downlink capabilities. NanoSat laser communication terminal (LCT) promises 1 Gbps data downlink capabilities. However, LEO to ground free...

Developing a new knee prosthesis requires thorough testing. Forward dynamics simulation can be valuable in the development process. It can reduce the need for intermediate prototypes and tests. Currently, there are 3D simulations of healthy walking and kinematic models of common prosthesis like the 3R60. However, they have not yet been combined....

Problem: Due to high rejection rates regarding prostheses’ use, the assessment of the amputee’s use of the prosthesis has become more critical. Today’s prosthesis research is limited to assessing a users’ performance to perform tasks in a controlled environment. Therefore, these studies cannot wholly assess how the prosthesis is used in the...

Inertial motion capture relies on accurate sensor-to-segment calibration. When two segments are connected by a hinge joint, for example in human knee or finger joints as well as in many robotic limbs, then the joint axis vector must be identified in the intrinsic sensor coordinate systems. Methods for estimating the joint axis using...

Oceans account for 71 percent of the earth’s surface, marine resources and energy are abundant. Therefore, making full use of marine energy is a good choice for humans to solve the energy crisis. One way to capture ocean energy is converting wave energy to electrical energy, by means of devices called wave energy converters (WECs). This project...

The oceans, which cover nearly 70% of the earth’s surface, can be considered as an inexhaustible energy source for renewable electricity due to its size and predictability. One way to capture ocean energy is by harnessing the energy produced by waves at sea, by means of devices called wave energy converters (WECs).<br/><br/>Delft University of...

The vertical axis pendulum is a type of point absorber device which can absorb wave energy from a width exceeding the physical width of the device. Mechanical power is harvested from the rotation of the pendulum, in which the pivot point is directly connected to the generator. In this paper, a new concept of the vertical axis pendulum device is...

This paper describes an interface circuit for a MEMS Coriolis mass flow sensor that combines both drive and sense circuitry. The MEMS sensor consists of a suspended resonant tube, which is read-out by comb capacitors and driven into oscillation by current flowing through a drive coil in a magnet field. The interface circuit comprises a low...
