Manss, C. (author)
The operation of robotic systems on extraterrestrial missions involves long distance communications, which have large delays and make the control of any agent complicated. This problem becomes even more dominant if multiple robotic systems are used. One solution to this problem is to increase the autonomy of each robotic system such that each...

The rediscovered interest in space exploration has led to plans to establish outposts on the Moon and beyond. The lunar bases currently planned are to be manned incrementally, with robots performing most work. With new trends in robotics, the use of collaborating swarms has become more abundant. To support lunar operation, a distinct area within...

Swarm robotics (SR) is an emerging field of research that utilizes a swarm of robots that work together as a team to solve complex problems. One such challenge in SR is the exploration of unknown environments to find multiple targets. This problem finds applications in various domains, such as archaeology, underground exploration, signal source...

The goal of this thesis is to develop a ROS package that facilitates the control and navigation of a Duckiebot robot. With the rise of robot swarms the need for autonomous charging system for robots is increasing. An implementation for decentralised autonomous behaviour for a Duckiebot for a wireless charging system in a Duckietown environment...

du Plessis, Nicolaas (author), Roos, Martijn (author)
This thesis aims to solve the problem of designing the hardware for a wireless charging system to be used for keeping an autonomous robot swarm alive. Previous designs available to us lacked essential safety features and were very specific in their application. Current wireless charging specifications are also not sufficient to cater to the...

Knoop, Stijn (author)
This master thesis aimed to develop an optimized operating strategy for an electricity grid incorporating hydrogen storage, while considering three key performance indicators: financial costs, reliability, and sustainability. The central research question guiding this study was: "How can the electricity demand be reliably met by a system...

This project was focused on designing and prototyping a mobile robotic builder using additive manufacturing. This robotic builder is meant to be a part of a larger fleet of robotic builders that use swarm based strategies to build structures using simple behavioral rules. The concept was inspired by the biological phenomenon that are termites,...

Lieveloo, Jeroen (author)
Automation in the form of swarm robots is an increasingly feasible opportunity for solving complex physical problems. However, how such a swarm is to be instructed and controlled is one of the many topics that requires further research. For this, we can look to nature for inspiration, as there are many nest building swarms. Perhaps the most...

Jarne Ornia, D. (author)
Besides facing the same challenges as single-agent systems, the distributed nature of complex multi-agent systems sparks many questions and problems revolving around the constraints imposed by communication. The idea that multi-agent systems require communication to access information, to coordinate or simply to sense the environment they are...

van den Berg, Rob (author)
The problem of finding a target and forming a path to it is known and is well-explored in the field of swarm robotics. Using swarm intelligence, even swarms of simple robots are capable of solving this problem. However, often these works assume that two robots can perceive each other can physically reach each other, or that robots can detect any...

In recent years, there has been a growing interest in lunar missions, particularly with the growing role of small satellites facilitated by piggyback launch opportunities. Typically, ground-based radiometric tracking is the workhorse to establish the necessary navigation solution in these missions, however, this could be expensive, while small...

We present a biologically inspired design for swarm foraging based on ant’s pheromone deployment, where the swarm is assumed to have very restricted capabilities. The robots do not require global or relative position measurements and the swarm is fully decentralized and needs no infrastructure in place. Additionally, the system only requires...

The development of clean hydrogen and photovoltaic (PV) systems is lagging behind the goals set in the Net Zero Emissions scenario of the International Energy Agency. For this reason, efficient hydrogen production systems powered from renewable energy need to be deployed faster. This work presents an optimization procedure for a stand-alone,...

To design electron lens systems, applying a fully automated optimization routine has not yet been feasible, especially for the case where the optimization has many free variables of the lens system, such as all parameters that define the geometry of the lens electrodes and the voltage of each electrode. Hence, the study of the implementation of...

For my Master’s thesis, I developed and trained an audio-based localization system for indoor localization called AudioLocNet. AudioLocNet is based on convolutional neural networks and maps recordings from a small(10cm diameter) microphone array to a grid of locations around said array. AudioLocNet was made to be used by swarms of small robots...
