This thesis includes the research performed to investigate how to move away from the current adversarial practices in the Dutch infrastructure sector found in the current way of contracting. Adversarial practices are defined as each party pursuing their own concerns at the other party’s expense. As a result of this, the industry is not...

van Wijngaarden, Dennis (author)
This research presents the derivation, implementation and safety assessment of a velocity obstacle- based conflict resolution method to be used by UAVs flying within a horizontally restricted airspace by a geofence under the presence of wind. Two parameters indicating the safety of the applied conflict resolution method have been measured, i.e.,...

This research presents an implementation of a novel controller design on an overactuated hybrid Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). This platform is a hybrid between a conventional quadcopter and a fixed-wing aircraft. Its inner loop is controlled by an existing but modified control method called Incremental Non-linear Control Allocation or INCA....

Sustainable energy technologies are ever-increasing in popularity, not only among companies but also among consumers. Photovoltaic, or PV, cells are amongst the most well known in this field. This project was set up for designing a PV-powered UAV that is able to generate an albedo map of an area equal or bigger than the campus of the TU Delft in...

Drones are unmanned flying vehicles, which can be used for a broad spectrum of different applications. One of these applications is the generation of albedo maps. However, it could take some time to map an area. Therefore problems can occur the with respect to its flight range, which typically lies between 20 to 45 km for...

With the strict Paris climate goals, all eyes are set on the development of sustainable solutions that can replace or improve commercial solutions. This thesis revolves around the design and implementation of a subsystem for the creation of a solar powered drone. The goal of the solar powered drone is increasing the flight range of a commercial...

In the aftermath of a disaster, Humanitarian Aid Organizations must operate in highly uncertain and complex contexts in order to provide the lifesaving aid to the people in need. However, the systems currently available to them are limiting the aid logistics, leaving victims cut off. Affordable options are not well suited for the devastated...

Formation flying is a phenomenon observed very often in the natural world, e.g. birds flying in a flock. The past decade has given a lot of emphasis on the research for the control of autonomous Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) of the fixed-wing kind, in an effort to emulate the behavior of natural flocks. Emulating this behavior requires the...

Teleoperation is by nature a deprivation of the senses, which can pose a handicap when operating in an unknown and even dynamic en- vironment. Noticing moving obstacles in such a situation can prove to be quite difficult and the UAV runs the risk of colliding with them. Previous work designed a shared control haptic interface based on the...

van Dam, Geart (author)
This research investigates and proposes a new method for obstacle detection and avoidance on quadrotors. One that does not require the addition of any sensors, but relies solely on measurements from the accelerometer and rotor controllers. The detection of obstacles is based on the principle that the airflow around a quadrotor changes when the...

Previous years have seen a rise in the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Reaching a large endurance and range while being able to perform Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) landings allows a broad range of applications. For this purpose the DelftaCopter (DC) was developed, a tilt-body tailsitter UAV. It hovers using a single helicopter...

We investigate how an Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) can detect manned aircraft with a single microphone. In particular, we create an audio data set in which UAV ego-sound and recorded aircraft sound can be mixed together, and apply convolutional neural networks to the task of air traffic detection. Due to restrictions on flying UAVs close to...

Current unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) are limited in operating altitude and endurance by the maximum attainable performance of small gas turbine engines. While improvements in the cycle thermal efficiency can be obtained through the introduction of heat exchangers, the consequent increase in engine weight partially offsets the benefits gained...
