The promises of Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) are generous, researchers and policymakers repeatedly present MaaS as a Holy Grail. MaaS has the potential to play a role in addressing issues as pollution, congestion and crowded cities. However, without interested users, these promises cannot be fulfilled. This study explores whether the proposed...

Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) is a new mobility concept that allows users to plan, book and pay for a multimodal and seamless trip in a single application. Real-life examples of MaaS propositions are still scarce and most have not left a trial or pilot phase. The MaaS-team of the Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management (IenW) wants to...

This work addresses the problem of exploration and coverage using visual inputs. Exploration and coverage is a fundamental problem in mobile robotics, the goal of which is to explore an unknown environment in order to gain vital information. Some of the diverse scenarios and applications in which exploratory robots can have a significant impact...

This project revolves around redesigning the future mobihub for the context of the Netherlands. A mobihub (or mobipunt in Dutch) is a brand of mobility hub. In this report, a mobility hub is defined as “A recognizable, physical place where different context-driven functions and services (mostly shared mobility-related such as shared cars) that...

A lot research has been conducted in the field of autonomous navigation of mobile robots with focus on Robot Vision and Robot Motion Planning. However, most of the classical navigation solutions require several steps of data pre-processing and hand tuning of parameters, with separate modules for vision, localization, planning and control. All...

The traffi c network of Midtown is under an enormous pressure, with a subway system that has deteriorated to such a dismal state that nearly all available funds go into maintenance and overhaul. Since Manhattan is an island and there are a limited number of access points, these connections are even more congested. For commuting to and from the...

We have entered the epoch of the Anthropocene. Now with humanity itself being a sizeable force of nature, we can no longer ignore the impact we have on the planet’s systems, as it is also increasingly impacting our societies, through climate change. This is occurring while major cities are still experiencing an increase in population. Amsterdam...

Noise is a major issue in Urban Air Mobility vehicles, especially due to its operation in the urban environment. One of the major sources of noise is the rotor, and thus, there is a need to optimize the rotor design for aerodynamics and aeroacoustics. A possible technological solution is represented by Co-rotating rotors (i.e., two rotors...

A vacant former school building in Hillesluis, Rotterdam-South, is transformed into dwellings specifically designed for residents of this area who are moving upward the ladder of social mobility (“sociale stijgers”). In order to enable them to climb up (or start on) the property ladder, research is conducted on their housing preferences. Three...

As a foreseeable trend, the automated mobility is believed to change our city in many aspects. It draws out a question to urbanists: is the application of the new technological innovation an urgency in our agenda, or the utilization of it for other urban issues should be. This project is based on the latter one.<br/>
Like many other mega cities...

Mobility-as-a-Service (MaaS) is a new concept that is expected to make multi-modal travel more seamless, by integrating a variety of different transport modes on a platform, accessible on demand for which monthly bundles can be bought. The hopes of MaaS are that due to the simplicity of the service, and the plethora of alternatives being offered...

Mobility is becoming a crucial factor to define contemporary social life. It
 has changed the relationship between government and economy, public and private, work and life, shaping a world that promotes unconstrained movements of people, products, consumption and working subjects. The fundamental redefinition of established social, political...

The design of the white cane, the most used mobility aid for visually impaired, has not changed significantly since the mid-20th century. New concepts and technological solutions have failed to catch on. However, the cane seems unappealing and outdated to some potential users. Margot Scheltema, the initiator of this graduation project, is a...

This research focuses on proving the presence of coloured noise on the longitudinal, lateral and rotational velocity in steady-state cornering of a skid steer mobile robot. Furthermore, it also focuses on the creation of a Gaussian filter which is able to recreate the characteristics of the measured coloured noise. This is done to determine the...

Augmented Reality (AR) - a technology that integrates 3D virtual objects into a real environment in realtime - has recently gained a lot of attention and is expected to become a 100 billion dollar industry by 2023. Surprisingly, researchers present a different picture of AR. They wonder about the functional benefits of AR and the impact of AR...

Chemical Enhanced Oil Recovery (CEOR) methods can increase the oil recovery of a reservoir to more than 60% of the volumes originally in-situ. Typical oil recoveries range from 20% to 40% of OIIP under traditional primary and secondary recovery stages. The understanding of the mechanisms that control such complex processes is essential...

The 21st century is increasingly concerned with environmental and sociological problems caused by ineffcient use of resources. As more people migrates towards cities, a rapid increase in motorization rates and the number of private vehicles will further aggravate the already apparent urban challenges. Factors such as increased congestion,...

The world is facing its limits in terms of climate change, scarcity of resources, and pollution. While there is a rising population with a rising demand for mobility, the limits of nature affecting society need to be considered. Avoiding mobility completely seems to be challenging considering a more globalized world, where everything is...
