Indoor positioning systems cannot rely on conventional localization methods, such as GPS, to locate devices because of interference with the structure of buildings. One solution is to use magnetic positioning, which is based on spatial variations in the patterns of the ambient magnetic field. To model magnetic fields, Gaussian process regression...

Understanding the factors that drive extreme water levels is key to an accurate assessment of flood hazard. The city of Venice has always been affected by flooding due to extreme water levels. In this study, we examine the factors driving and influencing extreme water levels in the Venice lagoon, aiming at deriving accurate extreme water level...

The EAD metric is widely used in the calculations for the capital requirements concerning Counterparty Credit Risk (CCR). In this thesis we compare several methods for calculating this EAD. Basel III gives us two methods, the Standardized Approach for CCR (SA-CCR) and the Internal Model Method (IMM). Furthermore, we introduce an integrated...

American option pricing has been an active research area in financial engineering over the past few decades. Since no analytic closed-form solution exists, various numerical approaches have been developed. Among all proposed methods, the least square Monte Carlo(LSMC) approach is the most successful and popular. The LSMC utilizes linear...

Autonomous navigation of Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs) in dynamic and unknown environments is a complex and challenging task. Current works rely on assumptions to solve the problem. The MAV's pose is precisely known, the dynamic obstacles can be explicitly segmented from static ones, their number is known and fixed, or they can be modeled with...

A prime concern for automated vehicles is motion comfort, as an uncomfortable ride may reduce acceptance of the technology amongst the general population. However, it is not clear how transient motions typical for travelling by car affect the experience of comfort. Here, we determine the relation between properties of vehicle motions (i.e.,...

Increasing levels of vehicle automation are envisioned to allow drivers to engage in other activities but are also likely to increase the incidence of Carsickness or Motion Sickness (MS). Ideally, MS is studied in a safe and controlled environment, such as a driving simulator. However, only few studies address the suitability of driving...

Soft robots are intrinsically underactuated mechanical systems that operate under uncertainties and disturbances. In these conditions, this letter proposes two versions of PID-like control laws with a saturated integral action for the particularly challenging shape regulation task. The closed-loop system is asymptotically stabilized and...

Changing the way of power production on a Floating, Production, Storage, and Offloading (FPSO)<br/>system by using renewable power can contribute to reducing an FPSO’s carbon footprint while operating. Bluewater Energy Services is interested in the use of a wind turbine placed on top of an<br/>FPSO, to power the FPSO’s internal electricity grid....

Over the years in the automotive industry, the use of radar sensors in advanced driver assistant systems (ADAS) has been increasing, shining a light on various safety and security concerns to be dealt, that come along with it. The performances of existing sensor technologies such as camera, LIDAR and GPS can be very well complemented by the use...

With the world’s population recently surpassing the 8 billion mark, population growth poses significant challenges on the planet. This growth is particularly evident in urban areas, and as a consequence, cities must find innovative ways to accommodate the increasing pressure on the current road infrastructure. In Amsterdam, a city with an...

Indoor localisation is a growing field of interest in recent studies. While GPS (global positioning system) is a standard for outdoor localisation, no such solution exists for indoor applications. The literature provides several methods to obtain the location of indoor systems, often using optical sensors. A small number of recent studies use...

The interest in developing electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicles has increased sharply in recent years. A concern for passenger acceptance of the new type of vehicle is that people may experience motion sickness. This is because eVTOL flight profiles are different from the motion conditions that people have previously...

To overcome the problem of wave-induced vessel motions on the crane tip, technologies have been developed to compensate for these motions. Most vessels nowadays, are equipped with dynamic positioning systems, these systems reduce the yaw, surge and sway movement of the vessel. This leaves, the motions roll, pitch and heave uncompensated. To...

Automated driving is where automobiles meet robotics. With the recent advances in intelligence, sensor technology, wireless technology, and computation power, we are inching ever closer to realising full autonomy in a vehicle. We are nowhere near the end of the line, however. Automated vehicles will have to interact with static obstacles like...

For travelling from point A to point B, autonomous vehicles generate a route between the points. During the mission, the vehicle uses a motion planning and controls algorithm to follow the planned route while avoiding static and dynamic obstacles. Motion planning algorithms generally plan over a future time horizon to smoothly follow the route...

The subject of this thesis is twofold: The first part is the study of local-to-global principles for the continuous Lie algebra (co-)homology of certain infinite-dimensional Lie algebras of geometric origin, specifically, Gelfand-Fuks cohomology and continuous cohomology of gauge algebras. It includes both an exposition to classical results of...

High-precision motion systems are crucial for many applications, such as in semiconductor equipment, microscopy, robotics, and medical devices. Next to high operating speeds, high accuracy and precision are required, which makes the design of these systems a challenging task. Dynamics, feedback control, and their interaction all play an...

Autonomous robots will profoundly impact our society, making our roads safer, reducing labor costs and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and improving our life quality. However, to make that happen, robots need to navigate among humans, which is extremely difficult. Firstly, humans do not explicitly communicate their intentions and use intuition...
