This project focuses on finding what defines an appropriate moment to notify in a smart reminder system. Specifically, the goal is to find a way in which smart reminders systems can be extended through the use of user values to ultimately provide more appropriately timed reminders. This is essential in providing software aided support. A system...

Large amounts of residual waste activated sludge are produced as by-products during biological wastewater treatment processes. Anaerobic digestion is a widely accepted stabilisation method for waste activated sludge (WAS) treatment. However, the application of anaerobic digestion is limited by the long retention time and low degradation...

This project proposes a series of experiments that involve plasma synthetic jet actuators. The first experiment will perform a jet characterisation experiment that will research the effect of orifice geometry on the overall performance of the actuator. The second experiment will built upon the first experiment and will use a plasma synthetic jet...

This thesis provides an exposition of the theory of Active Inference in a control theoretic context. Active Inference is a remarkably powerful neuroscientific theory that unifies many characteristics of the biological brain. As such, Active Inference provides a valid inspiration in search of improvements in bio-inspired robot control algorithms....

In the present research, the activation parameterization method introduced by Nenes and Seinfeld (2003) was compared and evaluated to a remote sensing-based method by Rusli, Donovan & Russchenberg (2017) for determining the cloud drop number concentration. Both methods have fundamentally different approaches for indirectly determining the...

Purpose
In order to strengthen the original goal of Activity-based working (ABW) - supporting the employees in fulfilling their tasks at their best - the employees need to be able to align their physical work environment to their dynamic needs. The report posed the question if employee happiness in ABW can be increased with interventions in...

The space environment is ever-changing with space structures getting larger and the orbits getting increasingly crowded with time. This creates a need for removal of large defunct satellites to avoid the disastrous Kessler syndrome, which poses a major threat to the future of space exploration. This research examines the dynamics and control...

During the last decades, large deployable structures are starting to be seen as a plausible configuration to multiple space missions, such as solar sailing, LEO (Low Earth Orbit) deorbiting missions or solar power generation. Technological advances in key areas, such as thin film solar cells or new deployment methods, as well as the...

Persistent surveillance is an urgent proficiency. For security, surveillance cameras are a strong asset as they support the automatic tracking of people and are directly interpretable by a human operator. Radar on the other hand can be used under a broad range of circumstances: radar can penetrate mediums such as clouds, fogs, mist and snow, and...

Recently published health reports from governments of western countries and the World Health Organization (WHO) provide insights on health benefits of being physically active. Performing physical activity of moderate intensity is, amongst others, associated with a smaller risk on symptoms of depression, cardiovascular disease and diabetes....

In spite of the fact that there are many advantages of alkali activated materials (also called geopolymers) over the cement-based materials, geopolymer concrete has been used in the past for construction purposes on a very limited level. Among the many advantages of geopolymers compared with the cement-based materials is less CO2 emission, it...

The Active Inference framework is a neuroscience theory based on the Free Energy Principle by Karl Friston that has gained considerable prominence as a general theory to explain action and perception. Despite its promising future and use in different fields, its applicability for robot control has been barely investigated in the literature so...

Louisiana, USA, operates as an oilscape, sacrificing its landscape in pursuit of economic prosperity through the oil and gas industry. Combined with sea level rise, this has resulted in continuous land loss since the fifties, making the Louisiana coast one of the fastest declining in the world. As a consequence, many communities are living on...

In the Netherlands, only 55% of the Dutch population meets the norm of 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week. To increase overall physical activity, the Dutch government wants to stimulate active travel. Active travel has two important benefits: the accessibility effect and the health effect. Yet, the effect of active travel on the...

Authors such as Clough (1955) and Rostow (1960) believed that countries endowed with natural resources could achieve sustainable economic growth. This belief was based on the role coal and oil had during the 19th and 20th century in the industrial development of countries such as Australia, Canada and the United States of America. However, this...
