With the use of simulation models, predicting and optimising the correct dynamic behaviour and parameters of a propulsion system of a ship can be performed cheap and safe. However, capturing the right dynamic behaviour is very difficult. Besides, building simulation models and determining the correct parameters is a time consuming process. With...

Flapping wing micro air vehicles (FWMAV's) are a subcategory of unmanned aerial vehicle which use flapping wings for thrust generation. The high agility and maneuverability of FWMAV's are very favorable attributes, making them more applicable in cluttered spaces. A tailless FWMAV called the Delfly Nimble has been developed at the Delft...

The human sensorimotor system can be seen as a complex network in which the brain plays an important role, resulting in a difficult-to-understand relation between proprioceptive stimuli and cortical responses. However, understanding this relationship is of added value for understanding various diseases which cause dysfunctionality. In recent...

The thesis aims to develop a Fault Tolerant Control (FTC) architecture, for the case of a damaged actuator for a multirotor that can be applied across multirotor platforms based on their Attainable Virtual Control Set (AVCS). The research is aimed to study the AVCS and identify the parameters that limit the controllability of multirotor UAV post...

Trevisan, E. (author)
Microscopic imaging has a resolution that is often far from the diffraction limit due to aberrations induced by the optics or by the sample itself. It is therefore of interest sensing these aberrations either directly or indirectly to improve image quality in post-processing or with adaptive optics. To avoid the use of extra hardware, several...

Parkinson's disease can severely affect motor performance and impede in executing daily activities. Treatment can greatly improve patients' quality-of-life, however, disease detection and monitoring is still performed subjectively. Quantification of patients' motor performance and its decline due to increasing symptom severity using tracking...

System identification techniques to analyse movement disorders are in development, but concrete clinical evidence to receive broad support from the clinical world is lacking. This master thesis proposes two ways to accelerate their development as part of the master’s programmes in Mechanical Engineering and Science Communication. The Mechanical...

Statistics show that cycling accidents have the biggest (and increasing) contribution to the overall number of hospital visits related to traffic accidents in the Netherlands. In the majority of these cycling accidents, no other road users are involved. Because the majority of the cycling accidents are so-called single vehicle accidents,...

B-splines are basis functions for the spline function space and are extensively used in applications requiring function approximation. The generalization of B-splines to multiple dimensions is done through tensor products of their univariate basis functions. The number of basis functions and weights that define a multivariate B-spline surface,...

Humans always wanted to go faster and higher than their own legs could carry them, leading them to invent numerous types of vehicles to move fast over land, water and air. As training how to handle such vehicles and testing new developments can be dangerous and costly, vehicle motion simulators were invented. <br/>Motion-based simulators in...

In this paper, we applied a system identification algorithm and an adaptive controller to a simple kite system model to simulate crosswind flight maneuvers for airborne wind energy harvesting. The purpose of the system identification algorithm was to handle uncertainties related to a fluctuating wind speed and shape deformations of the...

Changes in human balance control can objectively be assessed using system identification techniques in combination with support surface translations. However, large, expensive and complex motion platforms are required, which are not suitable for the clinic. A treadmill could be a simple alternative to apply support surface translations. In...

This article introduces the Tensor Network B-spline (TNBS) model for the regularized identification of nonlinear systems using a nonlinear autoregressive exogenous (NARX) approach. Tensor network theory is used to alleviate the curse of dimensionality of multivariate B-splines by representing the high-dimensional weight tensor as a low-rank...

A novel pile-driving technique, named Gentle Driving of Piles (GDP), that combines axial low-frequency and torsional high-frequency vibrations has been developed and tested recently. During the experimental campaign, several piles were installed onshore, making use of the GDP shaker. Besides those, a number of additional piles were installed...

In recent years, developments in the field of aerospace materials and structures has been bringing major breakthroughs in the construction of air vehicles to be more lightweight yet with higher strength. However, the aircraft body can deform more appreciably due to the occurrence of flow separation and flutter. Therefore, active control is...

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is themost frequent form of motor neuron diseases (MND). This neurodegenerativedisease progresses relentlessly quick. The characteristic feature of ALS is theconcurrent degeneration of the upper and lower motoneurons (UMN &amp; LMN) inthe central and peripheral nervous system. Symptomatic...

Currently used imaging methods in Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM) including the use of a Lock-In Amplifier or a Phase-Locked Loop, are suboptimal. In this report, the image resolution in AFM is improved by detecting the tip-sample interaction using complete measurements of the input of the cantilever and its measured deflection. Two methods are...

In car driving, manual control to keep a vehicle within its lane is mainly performed based on visual information of the road ahead. Linear models describing behavior in such tasks can therefore be directly based on the human perception of the visual scene, although it is currently unclear how this perception guides control behavior. In...

The extremely large telescopes that should see first light in coming years demand so-called adaptive optics systems to overcome the devastating effect of the atmospheric turbulence on the image quality. A sensor measures the incoming distortion of the light and is used for reshaping the latter using a deformable mirror. Processing the large...

Recently, Offshore Wind Turbines (OWT) have attracted great attention in an effort to make a shift from fossil-based energy sources towards an enhanced sustainable and renewable energy production. In order to achieve the renewables targets and reduce the cost of wind energy, OWTs are consistently increasing in size. Therefore, research has...
