This master thesis presents an experimental study on 3D person localization (i.e., pedestrians, cyclists)in traffic scenes, using monocular vision and Light Detection And Ranging (LiDAR) data. The performance of two top-ranking methods is analyzed on the 3D object detection KITTI dataset. In this evaluation, the effect of the Intersection over...

The use of distributed multi-agent formation control for non-holonomic mobile robots shows great promise in practical environments. In this thesis, a Robot Operating System (ROS) package is developed in which various formation control algorithms are implemented for use on a group of skid-steer drive mobile robots. These formation control...

NASA's ICE, Cloud and Land Elevation Satellite-2 (ICESat-2) has been measuring the topography of the Earth's surface since its launch in September 2018. Equipped with a single instrument, namely, the Advanced Topographic Laser Altimeter System (ATLAS), ICESat-2 is able to acquire the along track vertical profiles of its laser footprints. While...

This research attempts to investigate the coastal flow structure horizontally. The flow cases with different flow directions, including perpendicular and parallel to the shoreline directions, are selected by analyzing the New Europe Wind Atlas (NEWA) reanalysis data. After the cases are determined, high-resolution Weather Research and...

Bathymetric Airborne LiDAR technology is used to map the depth of water bodies. It uses a green light sensor which is able to penetrate the water surface and reach the bottom part of the interesting water areas. However, water conditions affect the capability of the green laser penetration. Factors such as the water clarity, the water turbidity ...

Several factors play a role in the ongoing process of the acceptance and eventual universal use of LiDAR remote sensing technology in wind site assessment. Especially turbulence parameter 푇퐼 is still giving food for thought. Three important aspects of LiDAR measured 푇퐼 that are considered key are picked out and feature in this work, which...

We have set out to develop a drone, based on the existing Delftacopter, capable of soil monitoring via LiDAR remote sensing. The battery was to be replaced by a fuel cell system in order to extend the range threefold to 180km. Unfortunately, the ultimate design is likely unfeasible. Agriculture requires healthy soil and monitoring soil health is...

Automatically generated 3D city models are becoming less of a futuristic, demanding or even impossible to attain goal, and more of a necessary, or vastly sought after, means for a multitude of applications. The current prevalence of open geographic information, such as nationwide-covering LiDAR datasets in the Netherlands, opens up opportunities...

The main objective of this thesis was the development and evaluation of a Detection and Tracking of Moving Objects (DATMO) system, that is capable of reliably tracking nearby vehicles from a moving car. The developed system takes in raw 2D LIght Detection And Ranging (LIDAR) measurements as input and detects objects of interest by clustering...

The overall purpose of this study is to establish novel methods of vehicle localization and mapping using a 1D linear automotive radar array in conjuncture with pre-existing lidar maps, and to test if the generated radar map can be made to be 3 dimensional. The reason for creating a novel localization method was to try and alleviate some of the...

In the coming decade, the Dutch government plans to broadly expand its wind farm real estate over the North Sea region. This is a significant undertaking because, from literature, it is understood that wind turbines can affect the local environment. These impacts include, but are not limited to, changes in variables such as wind speed and...

Carbonate reservoirs are of significant importance as they host a high percentage of the world’s oil and gas reserves. They are however subject to dissolution and may be heavily karstified often resulting in large cavities which may impose major hazards in drilling and production. In many cases, difficulty remains due to poor understanding of...

The influence of beach buildings on coastal dune development is still largely unknown, and it could pose a risk to the functionalities coastal dunes provide. The objectives of this research are covered by the main research question: What is the influence of specific types of beach buildings on aeolian coastal dune development and what are...

With cities getting more densely populated and more energy demanding, infrastructure integrated PV technology has gained more interest from researchers, companies and governmental institutions. Among the many urban surfaces that have been studied to be used to generate solar energy, roads are one of the most enticing but controversial as well....

More than 30% of the world’s hydrocarbon reserves are located in carbonate reservoirs, and this percentage is likely to increase, as a result of discoveries of new giant oil fields in carbonate rocks, generically named “Pre-salt layers”. However, there are still some problems in understanding karst systems that still unresolved. The karst caves...

The structural reliability of the wooden tower of the Grote of St. BavoChurch in Haarlem has been assessed with the regular methods. In addition to the regular methods, some modern technologies have been used in the structural analysis. The mechanical properties of the timber have been determined with longitudinal vibration tests and visual...

Current subsea LiDAR implementations are inherently depth limited, and make LiDAR applications in the deep-sea costly. To this end, the SLiDAR project aims to develop a pressure tolerant LiDAR system for use at any ocean depth. This thesis elaborates the high-level system design of the LiDAR system, as well as the design and implementation of...

Though several sensors are available for underwater scanning and ranging, they all have their limits. SONAR sensors are limited in resolution, and scanning mechanisms using a form of light for carrying the data suffer from high attenuation in turbid waters. <br/> <br/>The goal of this project was to design a LiDAR system that is capable of...

Recent advances in sensor technology have lead to increased resolution of novel sensors, while tracking applications where distance between sensors and objects of interest is very small have gained research interest recently. In these cases, it is possible that multiple sensor detections are generated by each object of interest. Extended Object...
