The versatility of the internet enables many applications that play an increasingly bigger role in our society. However, users have little control over the route that their internet traffic takes, which prevents them from controlling who sees their packets and how their traffic is handled. Researchers have proposed an extension to the internet,...

In recent years, the deployment of ground-based mobile robots has gained more and more interest in various domains. In contrast to other types of mobile robots, legged robots can traverse irregular terrains, climb stairs, and step over obstacles. However, these unique properties intensify the energy demand and require highly advanced perception...

Intention aware routing system is a route-planning algorithm for electric vehicles that minimizes overall travel time by taking into consideration congestion at charging stations. This thesis extends this algorithm to allow choices to be made based on prices at charging stations. The goal of this thesis is to find a way to minimize maximum...

Efficient crowd management is essential for optimizing the performance of pedestrian infrastructures, either in terms of crowd flow or pedestrian levels of safety and comfort. This study investigates the impact of one type of crowd management measure, namely lighting, on pedestrian behavior. Using Virtual Reality experiments, the impact of...

Over the past decade, there has been a surge of interest in the application of agent-based simulation models to evaluate flexible transit solutions characterized by different degrees of short-term flexibility in routing and scheduling. A central modelling decision in the development is how one chooses to represent the mode- and route-choices...

Ride-hailing companies will face the emergence and gradual expansion of AVs-only zones in urban areas where only automated vehicles (AVs) are allowed to circulate. When owning a mixed fleet (automated and conventional taxis), a ride-hailing company has to determine the optimal fleet size as a function of the gradually expanding coverage of...

Airport buses play a crucial role in addressing the last-mile problem of air travel, especially in cities and countries lacking inner-city rail transit systems. Nevertheless, airport buses are currently witnessing a decline in ridership due to drawbacks such as long departure intervals, inflexible stops, and considerable distances between...

We consider the problem of multipath entanglement distribution to a pair of nodes in a quantum network consisting of devices with nondeterministic entanglement swapping capabilities. Multipath entanglement distribution enables a network to establish end-to-end entangled links across any number of available paths with preestablished link-level...

Virtualized Radio Access Networks (vRANs) are fully configurable and can be implemented at a low cost over commodity platforms to enable network management flexibility. In this paper, a novel vRAN reconfiguration problem is formulated to jointly reconfigure the functional splits of the base stations (BSs), locations of the virtualized central...

The considerable increase in parcel deliveries has negatively impacted the accessibility and livability of cities. One solution strategy is to decouple short-distance from long-distance shipping so that last-mile transport can be performed with low-footprint vehicles. Such solutions are referred to in the literature as multi-echelon...
