This research aims to help in solving problems experienced with system integration in early-stage ship and system design by enabling automated design space exploration for on-board energy distribution systems. An Automatic Topology Generation (ATG) tool is developed and tested to do so. The ATG tool supports system designers in making trade-off...

This paper identifies high-performing Open Motion Planning Library (OMPL) planners for grasp execution and simultaneously presents useful benchmark data. Four grasp executions were defined using a UR5 manipulator. The performance was measured by means of solved runs, computing time and path length. Based on the results, planners are...

In this thesis, we present Cprof+, an upgraded version of Cprof. Cprof+ is a lightweight profiling tool for Polyhedral Process Networks (PPN) that can estimate the performance of a C-program as a PPN implemented in hardware. Cprof+ improves the set of possible programs that can be successfully profiled, by increasing the performance estimation...

Pioneering work reinvents the parameters of the possible, and violates the laws of the impossible. Though space exploration is an expanding topic, the future missions to the Moon are the firsts to have humans and automated systems working together to explore new terrains. Preparing the future of human-robotic integrated space operations is a...

Preliminary ship design (or early stage design in US terminology) is the very first step in designing a new ship. In this stage ship designers attempt to find an affordable balance of the future owner's (customer or operator) ambitions and operational needs. This balance is then translated into more tangible design requirements. However, the...

Turboprop aircraft achieve higher propulsive efficiencies at lower speeds due to their engine’s ability to accelerate a high mass flow of air at low jet velocities. With the increased importance of environmental considerations in aircraft design, aircraft manufacturers are forced to open up the considered speed domain since a reduction in cruise...

Designers are confronted with high time-to-market pressure and an increasing demand for computational power. As a result, they are required to identify as early as possible the quality of a specification for an intended technology. The designer needs to know if this specification can be improved, and at what cost. Specification trade-offs are...

Until recently, design teams were constrained by tools and schedule to only be able to generate a few alternatives, and analyze these from just a few perspectives. The rapid emergence of performance-based design, analysis, and optimization tools gives design teams the ability to construct and analyze far larger design spaces more quickly. This...

HEALTHCARE in the 21st century is changing rapidly. In advanced countries, in particular, healthcare is moving from a public to a more personalized nature. However, the costs of healthcare worldwide are increasing every year. Better use of technology can and should be used to get control of these costs. At the same time, implants have clearly...

Sigdel, K. (author)
Recon?gurable architectures are becoming increasingly popular as they bear a promise of combining the ?exibility of software with the performance of hardware. Nevertheless, such architectures are subject to numerous constraints, such as performance, memory requirements, chip area, and power consumption. To create an efficient design, performing...

As we move towards an aging population, it is likely that an increasing number of people will require an increasing diversity of implants, but at a lower cost to the society. Also, as computer technology progresses, smaller, more powerful, and less battery intensive implants can be designed. However, present implant design methodology is highly...

Caarls, W. (author)
Parallel heterogeneous multiprocessor systems are often shunned in embedded system design, not only because of their design complexity but because of the programming burden. Programs for such systems are architecture-dependent: the application developer needs architecture-specific knowledge to implement his algorithms, as each processor has its...

Ditzel, M. (author)
Chip designers face increasingly complex designs and multiple competing design objectives and constraints. Early in the design cycle, a designer has to make choices relying on insufficient or inaccurate information. For instance, the designer has to decide which parts to implement in software and which in hardware. The complexity of the designs...
