Global Navigation Satellite System is a spatial data acquisition technique, mostly used in navigation and positioning. One of the main components of this technique is the satellite visibility, which refers to the connection between the satellite and the ground receiver. It is known that the GNSS positioning systems are not as performing in urban...

In the inevitable high-density urbanization process, existing urban green space (UGS) design approaches are ineffective in creating more green areas and combining multidisciplinary design principles to provide balanced sets of ecosystem services (ESs). This paper proposes a systematic framework for UGS design in the context of high-density urban...

In recent decades, gender inequality has been discussed increasingly in different fields of society. Since long ago, aspects like power dynamics in traditional households, or studies on the human anatomy, have influenced men and women’s place in society. This gender inequality has also impacted how cities have been designed by and for men,...

An important part of people and their wellbeing is their living environment. Because of the increase in population and buildings, urban areas suffer from densification and diminishing green environments. These urban environments have substantial risk of mental illness, such as depression and anxiety. Green environments and qualitative features...

As the effects of climate change are more and more materializing around the globe it is ever more important to reduce our reliance on a fossil fuel based energy system. When coupling this to an ongoing trend of urbanization in many places across the world, the energy systems of our cities become of particular interest. However, the transition...

We report on the application and comparative assessment of two rational turbulence modelling approaches for the computer simulation of air flow and pollutant dispersion in real urban environment: a stand-alone unsteady Reynolds-averaged Navier-Stokes eddy-viscosity model (URANS), and its blend with Large-eddy simulations (LES) in a hybrid...

The European Union committed to a 40% reduction in domestic greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 in order to maintain globalwarming between 1.5°C and 2°C during the 21st Conference of the Parties. This pledge involves, among other things, emission reductions in the transportation sector, which accounts for a quarter of Europe’s...

The presence of industry within the urban environment is gaining significant traction in a number of cities around the world. It’s growth and importance is fuelled by technology advancements that support both traditional local industry and advanced manufacturing. However, there is a lack of a vision and clear approach regarding industry in...

A green-blue roof consists of a water storage layer with on top a substrate layer covered with vegetation. Due to the presence of the water storage layer, a green-blue roof is better capable of retaining heavy rain events. A movable valve makes it possible to manage the amount of water on the roof and the timing of drainage from the roof to the...

Climate change is affecting the urban environment in the Netherlands, which increases the risks of droughts, floods, waterlogging, and heatwaves. Consequently, the cities we build many years ago are not resilient to climate change in the long run. In response the national government created the Delta Plan on Spatial Adaptation (DPRA) to adapt to...

Although point clouds are characterized as a type of unstructured data, timestamp attribute can structure point clouds into scanlines and shape them into a time signal. The present work studies the transformation of the street point cloud into a time signal based on the Z component for the semantic segmentation using Long Short-Term Memory ...

Occlusions accompany serious problems that reduce the applicability of numerous algorithms. The aim of this work is to detect and characterize urban ground gaps based on occluding object. The point clouds for input have been acquired with Mobile Laser Scanning and have been previously segmented into ground, buildings and objects, which have...

To validate rainfall intensity in urban areas measured by satellite a first prototype proof of concept is introduced and tested. Using low-cost electronics an umbrella is converted into a mobile acoustic rain gauge which can be used in urban areas to measure rainfall intensities. A reed switch is placed in the umbrella to measure whether the...

Everyday people find their way towards work, supermarkets, or unfamiliar places are explored for a social visit. Understanding how differences in urban wayfinding behaviour relate to daily travel patterns is important to describe route choice behaviour, identify potential navigation problems, design more legible cities, and provide...

The introduction of electric vehicles (EVs) can significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions, fossil fuel depletion and urban air pollution. The exponential growth of the EV market requires a significant expansion of the public charging infrastructure. This causes challenges especially in cities in terms of parking pressure, grid reinforcements...
