The average worldwide internet traffic demand in 2022 is projected to be over 1200 Terabits per second. A fifth of this data would be transmitted using mobile networks. One of the technologies used for this is radio frequency (RF) telecommunication, but this technology is reaching its limits. Despite ongoing development, typical data rates are...

This research has two main purposes: (1) to show the quality of dominant nature, above man and (2) to demonstrate the investigation of biodiversity in a city environment both by designing a prototype of a dwelling. The city environment, in this case, is Amsterdam; the dwelling is designed in the Jordaan. The location is chosen because this...

While touch Interfaces have greatly improved the user friendliness and functional possibilities of devices, haptic feedback has been lacking in user interface design. Good Haptic feedback not only gives confirmation of a key press, but also enriches the user interaction and improves the usability of interfaces.
This absence of haptic...

One-third of the food produced is wasted while the demand for food is increasing worldwide. The food supply in the consumption phase is not only the last chain but also wastes the most. Yet the majority of residents in the Netherlands have still underestimated this number. Therefore, the design aims at recycling and reusing the food waste on the...

The construction sector contributes to a significant portion of global energy consumption, CO2 emissions and the use of material resources. As climate change escalates with rapidly increasing temperatures, more extreme weather patterns and rising sea levels, an urge to reduce the environmental impact is evident.

A discrepancy is...

In recent years, there has been a growing necessity for 3D geoinformation in urban planning and infrastructure management to provide a more realistic representation of urban areas and the built environment. A key concept in public infrastructure management is Life Cycle Asset Management (LCAM), which aims to improve the decision making in each...

The electrical output of a solar panel can be optimised in several ways, through the inclusion of bypass diodes (BPDs) or to have a maximum power point (MPP) tracker or DC optimiser to ensure that the panel is always operating at its global MPP. However most of these systems have to be implemented externally to the panel. A new system, the...

Gait rehabilitation attempts to alleviate gait and balance impairments caused by spinal cord injury. Conventional gait rehabilitation often includes unloading a portion of the user’s weight with a vertical force. This vertical force enables people to practice stepping but makes forward propulsion more difficult. Users will adopt a compensatory...

The main objective of this study was to develop a quick model for an oil free twin screw compressor. The computational time of the model was to be kept as low as possible so that the model could be used for quick estimations and optimizations of the process. This was done by using a simple geometry focusing on the volume curve and port sizes,...

An estimated 9 million infants are born prematurely each year in south Asia and sub-Saharan Africa, and the leading cause of death in preterms is respiratory distress syndrome (RDS). Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is a popular treatment for RDS and has been proven to be safe, feasible, and effective for use in low- and middle-income...

The theories of energy harvester and complaint mechanism on micro scale have been developed vastly, however prototyping and realization of conceptual designs of such devices is difficult. Currently, micro scale prototyping devices can only be manufactured by means of lithography. However, lithography is expensive, both in terms of time and cost....
