Nowadays, the high demand for road transportation often reaches a point where it exceeds the capacity of freeway traffic networks, resulting in congestion. Freeway traffic congestion is a major social problem, as it is the reason for increased time delays, higher accident risk and environmental pollution. There is, therefore, the need for a...

The vector field method was originally proposed to guide a single fixed-wing Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) towards a desired path. In this work, a non-uniform vector field method is proposed that changes in both magnitude and direction, for the purpose of achieving formations of UAVs. As compared to related work in the literature, the...

Ultrasound contrast-mediated medical imaging and therapy both rely on the dynamics of micron- and nanometer-sized ultrasound cavitation nuclei, such as phospholipid-coated microbubbles and phase-change droplets. Ultrasound cavitation nuclei respond non-linearly to ultrasound on a nanosecond time scale that necessitates the use of ultra-high...

High-Speed Atomic Force Microscopy is widely used for investigating biological architectures and the semiconductor industry. The main limitation comes from parachuting or the Wile E. Coyote effect. Parachuting is the phenomenon where the cantilever taps on the sample towards a steep decrease in height, but does not get adjusted for this decrease...

Urban mobility is challenged with increasing demand, while at the same time reducing emissions, without leading to an unpleasant living environment. Reducing the number of stops on the urban arterial controlled by the coordinated traffic controller can provide (part of) the solution to these challenges for urban mobility. Coordinated traffic...

There is an increasing need for understanding the impacts of institutions on the integrated planning of transport and land use. High-speed railway (HSR) station areas, as nodes in transport networks and mixed-use areas, have become a focus in planning. The fast development of HSR station areas in China causes many problems, such as remote...

Steel production is a critical index to measure the infrastructural growth and development of a nation. The steel production capacity of a nation has a significant impact on its GDP. Even though steel rolling has been in the industry since the early 1700s, there have not been significant advancements in its technology space. The safety hazards...

Internal combustion engine (ICE) emissions cause numerous social, environmental, health, and economic issues, including extreme weather or harm to public health. These effects are also experienced in the Chinese Pearl River Delta, where a high-speed, 200-passenger ferry named the Coastal Cruiser 200 (CC-200) uses ICEs to operate. The CC-200's...

Electric vehicles are a cleaner and more efficient means of transport. However, the sub-energy-optimal acceleration and deceleration inputs of drivers result in speed trajectories that cause superfluous expenditure of the stored electrical energy in battery. Optimising the speed trajectories to minimise the consumption of stored energy is a...

Functional ultrasound is by now a well-established technique in the neuroscience community to measure brain activity. However, the transcranial application of functional ultrasound on humans, with the exception of the acoustic windows in the skull, remains a huge challenge because of the properties of the cranial bone the acoustic waves will...

The Flying-V novel aircraft design aims at reducing fuel consumption by an innovative low-drag, fuselage-free geometry. However, possible issues related to certification requirements have been noted regarding longitudinal handling qualities at low speed, the pull-up manoeuver, and the flight path angle response. This study aims at investigating...

Automatic Speech Recognition (ASR) systems have seen substantial improvements in the past decade; however, not for all speaker groups. Recent research shows that bias exists against different types of speech, including non-native accents, in state-of-the-art (SOTA) ASR systems. To attain inclusive speech recognition, i.e., ASR for everyone...

To be able to cope with the demands of next generation radar applications, a bandwidth of 400MHz is required. The SAR assisted CT ∆Σ ADC provides an energy efficient ADC, but needs improvements to cope with the bandwidth enlargement. This thesis examines the front end components and thus initially focuses on resolving the issues in the front end...

The research presented regards the study of D4 using experimental speed of sound measurements to obtain the ideal gas isobaric heat capacity. The isobaric heat capacity is not a useful property for the generation of equations of state, in the presented research it is used for the validation of thermodynamic models. However, due to the observed...

Particle image velocimetry (PIV) is the state of the art for quantitative, full-field, 3D flow diagnostics. Despite the maturity of the technique, two bottlenecks are identified which are addressed in this thesis: the achievable measurement volume size, and the optical access to geometrically complex objects. Both aspects are well illustrated...

Highly-loaded low-speed roller bearings are frequently used in equipment offshore e.g. slew bearings in crane, sheave bearings and FPSO turret bearings. Reducing maintenance costs, increasing productivity, ensuring safety of people and structural integrity and longevity assurance of equipment can be achieved by the condition monitoring of highly...

New applications of connectivity between vehicles and the infrastructure are developed. One of these applications is providing upstream information on variable speed limits to connected and automated vehicles. It is expected that the connectivity can contribute to safer roads due to better compliance to the posted speed limits. Those...

This article proposes a compensation method of position estimation error for high-speed surface-mounted permanent magnet synchronous motors based on robust inductance estimation. The proposed method relies on the variation of the estimated δ-axis back back-electromotive force when a small current is injected into the γ axis. The inductance...

In practice, the operation of high-speed trains is often affected by adverse weather conditions or equipment failures, which result in delays and even cancellations of train services. In this article, a novel two-layer hierarchical model predictive control (MPC) model is proposed for on-line high-speed railway delay management and train...

In this article, a novel dynamic-decoupled active damping current controller is proposed for an LCL-equipped high-speed permanent magnet synchronous machine. Compared with the conventional stationary current-control method for the LCL-type system, the proposed method is established in the synchronous rotating frame for improving the current...
