Indoor air quality (IAQ) is an important aspect of maintaining human health and well-being, particularly since people spend most of their time indoors. Carpets, with their large surface area and dense fibre piles, have the potential to significantly impact IAQ by emitting and absorbing volatile organic compounds (VOC) from building materials and...

Renovation of existing buildings is proposed as a solution for buildings that do not fit the Climate Target Plan 2030. In the Netherlands, there is a new mandate requiring Dutch office buildings to attain a minimum EPC class C rating by January 1st, 2023. Recent studies indicate that 10% of Dutch office buildings are currently rated at EPC class...

Indoor localization is an actively researched field due to there not being a universal solution found yet. Applications of such systems include but are not limited to indoor wayfinding and automated tour guides. In previous years multiple solutions were proposed. This work looks into the performance of an indoor location sensing system in the...

The ability to accurately determine the location within indoor settings is crucial for various applications such as indoor navigation, interactive floor plans, and room-specific services. While GPS technology has revolutionized outdoor positioning, it falls short in providing precise location information within buildings due to signal blockage....

Occupants are often unaware of window opening strategies that can enhance their well-being and reduce energy consumption. Window feedback systems that indicate when to manually operate a window have become a strategy for enhancing the indoor climate, occupant’s satisfaction and energy efficiency. These systems are recognized for providing the...

As the indoor cycling trainer industry keeps innovating, a cycling trainer that has a similar longitudinal motion to outdoor cycling does not yet exist. Therefore, this thesis aimed to design a simulator controller that can actively simulate longitudinal cycling motion and assess its performance in translating outdoor longitudinal cycling...

In the last few years the smart building market has grown exponentially and is estimated to be worth around 100 billion by the year 2025. The amount of active competitors, combined with the required time and effort to launch a new sensor-based product, makes it difficult to enter the market and slows innovation. WeAreReasonablePeople (WARP), a...

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the importance of ventilation was widely stressed and new protocols of ventilation were implemented in school buildings worldwide. In the Netherlands, schools were recommended to keep the windows and doors open, and after a national lockdown more stringent measures such as reduction of occupancy were introduced. In...

Ventilative cooling is an energy-saving technology to diminish thermal discomfort and overheating risk of buildings, meanwhile achieving high indoor air quality (IAQ). However, there is still no optimal control strategy in practice, which considerably limits its application. This study developed a typical office building model to evaluate the...

The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the importance of indoor air quality (IAQ) and ventilation, which researchers have been warning about for years. During the pandemic, researchers studied several indicators using different approaches to assess IAQ and diverse ventilation systems in indoor spaces. To provide an overview of these indicators and...

Hyperbolic localization measures the time difference of arrivals (TDOAs) of signals to determine the location of a wireless source or receiver. Traditional methods depend on precise clock synchronization between nodes so that time measurements from independent devices can be meaningfully compared. Imperfect synchronization is often the dominant...
