In the community of petroleum engineering, the use of surrogate modelling techniques have recently gained more and more popularity to improve the efficiency of history matching. However, it is still not possible to fully utilize their potential in realistic applications. One of the challenges is to retain high accuracy while increasing the...

Despite widespread adoption of machine learning models in automatic decision making, many of them remain black boxes of which their inner workings are unknown. To be able to reason about given predictions, a local surrogate model can be used to approximate the local decision boundary of the black box. One particular local explanation method,...

Autonomous mobile robots are becoming increasingly important in many industrial and domestic environments. Dealing with unforeseen situations is a difficult problem that must be tackled to achieve long-term robot autonomy. In vision-based localization and navigation methods, one of the major issues is the scene dynamics. The autonomous...

This paper describes a step-by-step approach for generating various energy concepts for neighbourhoods, based on local renewable resources. The approach is developed within the European research project ‘Smart Urban Isle’ (SUI). While much literature is focussed on comparison or optimization of predefined configurations, the SUI approach adds...

On land, localization or ranging is typically performed by using electromagnetic waves. In an underwater environment, this becomes difficult, as electromagnetic waves dampen out fast. As a solution often acoustic waves are used to perform localization. Because of the complexity of underwater acoustic propagation, an acoustic propagation model is...

A high-level neural controller for leader-follower flight is presented. State of the art range-based relative localization schemes that rely exclusively on onboard sensors present an additional challenge to the leader-follower control problem since they restrict the flight conditions that guarantee observability. This novel controller was...

For a long time, scientists believed that it is not possible to achieve a better microscopic resolution than half the wavelength of light (~ 200 nm). During the last decades, various super-resolution fluorescence microscopy techniques have been developed, offering high-resolution imaging beyond the diffraction limit. It has been established as...

Sustainability is becoming more important in our society. One of the actions for a sustainable future is starting an energy transition for the reduction of greenhouse gases. For realising this transition, local energy cooperatives are initiated. Within these local energy cooperatives, a collective of citizens is willing to generate and...

Pedestrian indoor localization is a problem yet to have a solution that is as generally accepted as the Global Positioning System is for outdoor localization. An infrastructure-independent option is to leverage the data from Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) sensors to determine position. An advantage of this approach is that these sensors are...

Energy saving is becoming a topic that has been widely discussed. By 2050 all office buildings according to EU plans should be energy neutral. This implies a large potential for more efficient solutions, such as occupancy-aware local heating. Based on this idea, OfficeVitae developed a vertical heating panel for use in offices using carbon...

The Internet is a technology that was invented in the 1960s and was used only by a few users to do simple communications between computers. Fast forward to 2020, the Internet has become a technology that is being used by billions of users. It allows users to communicate with each other across the world and even allows users to access data...

Using Stratford as a case study, this research aims to address the lack of consideration for creating affordances of coexistence between local and global communities within areas subject to large scale regeneration projects. This process of chance in favour of attracting more affluent residents can lead to the complete displacement of local...

Localization is a problem of ’where we are’. Localization techniques help people understand their surrounding environment based on extracted position information in a geographic reference map. The development of global navigation satellite system (GNSS), light detection and ranging (LiDAR), computer vision (CV), etc., enables us to apply...

This design project explores the local values and mentality of the inhabitants of the French village Embres-et-Castelmaure, and the contrasting perspectives of the village by tourists, immigrants and temporary workers. There is an intriguing theoretical duality between fundamental and superficial cosmopolitanism, cosmopolitanism being described...

Computer vision tasks, like supervised image classification, are effectively tackled by convolutional neural networks, provided that the architecture, which defines the structure of the network, is set correctly. Neural Architecture Search (NAS) is a relatively young and increasingly popular field that is concerned with automatically optimizing...

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...

In 2018 the Dutch national government announced its decision to end natural gas extraction. This decision poses a challenge for local governments (municipalities) which have to organize a heat supply that is natural gas-free. Energy models can decrease the complexity of this challenge, but some challenges hinder the effective use of energy...

Technology is transforming almost all aspects of our lives, one of them is automation. The main motivation of automation is to help humans avoid performing tedious, high risk jobs. Automated driving, also known as autonomous driving, has been at the center of industrial and academic attention since a few decades now, thanks to its potential of...

Large-scale complex systems require high-fidelity models to capture the dynamics of the system accurately. For example, models of nuclear reactors capture multiphysics interactions (e.g., radiation transport, thermodynamics, heat transfer, and fluid mechanics) occurring at various scales of time (prompt neutrons to burn-up calculations) and...
