Problem: Due to high rejection rates regarding prostheses’ use, the assessment of the amputee’s use of the prosthesis has become more critical. Today’s prosthesis research is limited to assessing a users’ performance to perform tasks in a controlled environment. Therefore, these studies cannot wholly assess how the prosthesis is used in the...

Social interactions in general are multifaceted and there exists an wide set of factors and events that influence them. Hence, interactions as a social phenomena have been studied by researchers in the fields of psychology and social signal processing from different stand points. The common trend in literature is to perform an in-depth study on...

Silicon accelerometers used in the automotive industry should be improved in resolution and accuracy. Exploiting quantum effects in diamond to improve sensing accuracy is a popular technique for nanoscale sensing applications. This thesis will present a new design concept for an accelerometer using these quantum effects for sensing on a...

In this thesis the automatic multimodal detection of social and task cohesion in meetings is studied. The presence of social and task cohesion has positive benefits on employee well-being, creativity and productiveness, and can therefore be used to assess meeting quality. Conversational partners imitate each other's body language and speech...

Fluid accumulation in the human body is, in many cases, a symptom of some underlying pathological condition. Most common examples include edema, ascites, pleural effusion, and internal bleeding. Currently available non-invasive methods to assess fluid accumulation in the body are mainly imaging-based (i.e. ultrasound, computed tomography). This...

Physical activity and mobility are important indicators of the recovery process of patients in the general ward of the hospital. Currently, monitoring mobility of hospitalized patients relies largely on direct observation from the caregivers. Accelerometers have the potential to quantify physical activity of patients objectively and without...

Wireless sensor networks play a vital role in major technological developments. The success of such networks depend on the quality and reliability of data acquisition. Despite a lot of research involving network clock synchronization, the area of synchronous sampling has not been dealt in much detail. This thesis aims at studying and...

The Equivalence Principle is today challenged by some theories attempting to unify General Relativity and Quantum Mechanics. The MICROSCOPE mission thus intents to confirm or overturn this principle by testing the universality of free fall in space with an unrivaled precision objective of 10^-15. The principle of the test relies on the precise...

Physical activity recognition through wearables has enabled the development of novel applications in healthcare. Most of the existing studies focus on predicting activities using wearable sensors, either in a controlled or uncontrolled environment. However, there is not a clear distinction between these two environments. Hence, this thesis aimed...

In order to make offshore working conditions safer, Ampelmann B.V. builds platforms that stay stable by compensating for a ship’s motion. These platforms are controlled via motion reference units (MRUs). In order to test the performances of these MRUs, a linear motion MRU test setup was developed. The system was divided into three parts:...

Prototype single layer armour units on a breakwater slope are observed to break. To predict when breakage occurs, the objective of this research project is to obtain knowledge on, and measurements of the rocking behaviour and failure mode of single layer armour units. A single cube on a breakwater slope is subjected to investigations. An...

The retrieval of vertical winds by using acceleration data of satellites has never been done before and therefore the results will be unique. Two different methods can be developed for the retrieval of these winds. The first one is a two-dimensional approach and the second one uses the three-dimensional space. From the results for the vertical...

Vibrations can be a limiting factor in systems working with nanometer precision. Inertial sensors are used to measure these vibrations. This thesis presents a hybrid inertial sensor using both a displacement and velocity measurement on a single mass-spring system. The measurements are combined into one output of absolute displacement. A...

The way people meet each other is usually face to face. Meanwhile, the way people maintain their contacts is mostly through social media. This results in a gap of translating a handshake into a digital connection. Shake-On is a start-up that has come up with an answer by means of a smart bracelet. Their aim is to wirelessly exchange contact...

In deze thesis is het ontwerpproces van de ’Altimeter bal’ beschreven. Deze bal is bedoeld als speelgoed voor kinderen en behoort na een worp de maximale hoogte van die worp weer te geven. Onderzoek is gedaan naar de manier van hoogtebepaling, het materiaal waarvan de bal gemaakt is en de manier waarop de Altimeter bal met de gebruiker...

Het bachelorproject `How High' heeft als doel het opbouwen en testen van een algoritme waarmee worpen van een telefoon gedetecteerd kunnen worden, en waarmee de bereikte hoogte bepaald kan worden. Dit algoritme dient daarna te worden toegepast in een game voor mobiele telefoons. Voor de detectie kan gebruik gemaakt worden van verschillende...
