This thesis introduces a novel model predictive controller (MPC) that integrates both torque vectoring and path following into one controller. Due to a need to improve vehicle safety, systems are being developed in order to improve vehicle handling. One system that is able to improve the vehicle handling is torque vectoring (TV). With torque...

This study introduces a new design for the drivetrain of a robotic ball. An application for the robotic ball is a rehabilitation device for young children. With these children, movement can be stimulated in a more intuitive way when a robotic ball is used compared to other training programs. Since the ball will be kicked and played with, an...

Drifting, a specialized form of sideslip control, involves intentionally inducing and maintaining a state of oversteer for lateral sliding of the vehicle. While previous research has primarily focused on autonomous drift control, the integration of the driver in the control loop remains largely unexplored. This thesis aims to explore how a...

This thesis focuses on finding a control algorithm that, based on a list of requirements, is most suitable for driving the 25 A permanent magnet synchronous motor and propeller that are provided by Fusion Engineering. Various control algorithms are investigated, and basic implementations are simulated. Based on the investigation, it was decided...

This letter investigates the stability properties of the soft inverted pendulum with affine curvature - a template model for nonlinear control of underactuated soft robots. We look at how changes in physical parameters affect stability and equilibrium. We give conditions under which zero dynamics corresponding to a collocated choice of the...

Adaptation to external and internal changes is of major importance for robotic systems in uncertain environments. Here, we present a novel multisensory active inference (AIF) torque controller for industrial arms that shows how prediction can be used to resolve adaptation. Our controller, inspired by the predictive brain hypothesis, improves...

Muscle tissue is prone to changes in composition and architecture following stroke. Changes in muscle tissue of the extremities are thought to increase resistance to muscle elongation or joint torque under passive conditions. These effects likely compound neuromuscular impairments, exacerbating movement function. Unfortunately, conventional...

Individuals with an upper motor neuron syndrome, e.g., stroke survivors, may have a pathological increase of passive ankle stiffness due to spasticity, that impairs ankle function and activities such as walking. To improve mobility, walking aids such as ankle-foot orthoses and orthopaedic shoes are prescribed. However, these walking aids...

Detailed simulations of flow around various prolate spheroids are performed using multi-relaxation time lattice Boltzmann method (LBM). The simulations are performed in the Reynolds numbers range 0.1≤Re≤2000 at different incident angles 0<sup>∘</sup>≤ϕ≤90<sup>∘</sup> for various prolate spheroids of aspect ratios 1≤λ≤8. The Re is based on the...

Control of systems with operating condition-dependent dynamics, including control moment gyroscopes (CMGs), often requires operating condition-dependent controllers to achieve high control performance. The aim of this brief is to develop a frequency response data-driven linear parameter-varying (LPV) control design approach for single-input...

A realistic steering feel is one of the key elements to guarantee fidelity on a driving simulator in general, and in particular to replicate on-centre vehicle handling. This requires precise modelling of the steering dynamics, a high bandwidth control loading system, and coupling of virtual and physical components in agreement with...

The zero-sequence inductance is a vital parameter for the performance analysis of permanent magnet machines, especially under faulty conditions or in open-winding machines. This paper focuses on the zero-sequence inductance calculation of fractional slot concentrated winding permanent magnet synchronous machines (FSCW-PMSMs), and reveals the...

Background: Muscle weakness is characteristic of knee osteoarthritis. Muscle steadiness may be an important adjunct to knee muscle strength in improving physical function in knee osteoarthritis. However, the role of muscle steadiness is uncertain. Aims: To determine the associations of knee extensor muscle steadiness with maximal voluntary...

The ever-increasing power capacities of wind turbines promote the use of tall and slender turbine towers. This poses a challenge from a fatigue loading perspective by the relocation of the first and lightly-damped tower side-side natural frequency into the turbine operating regime, promoting its excitation during nominal operation. The...

The need for a training modality for tooth extraction procedures is increasing, as dental students do not feel properly trained. In this study, a prototype of a training setup is designed, in which extraction procedures can be performed on jaw models and cadaveric jaws. The prototype was designed in a way that it can give real-time feedback on...

Medial elbow overuse injuries are rising in baseball. The external valgus torque magnitude is a possible risk factor for medial elbow injuries. The magnitude on its own cannot explain why one pitcher sustains an injury and another does not. Therefore, the aim of this study is to describe the within-individual external valgus torque variability...

The Immersion and Invariance (II) wind speed estimator is a powerful and widely-used technique to estimate the rotor effective wind speed on horizontal axis wind turbines. Anyway, its global convergence proof is rather cumbersome, which hinders the extension of the method and proof to time-delayed and/or uncertain systems. In this letter, we...

A significant part of the energy consumed during the tunnelling process of Earth Pressure Balanced (EPB) Tunnel Boring Machines (TBMs) is related to the main drive, consisting of a set of motors driving the rotation of the cutting wheel. An energy efficient EPB design requires the optimization of the main drive to avoid over- or under powering...

With the requirements for CubeSats increasing, a push towards utilizing high­performance equipment has never been greater. Incorporating these equipment in an environment that is cost­, space­ and power­constrained, is challenging. Simultaneously, high­performance equipment require high pointing­accuracy and low­jitter.
