In recent years, the deployment of ground-based mobile robots has gained more and more interest in various domains. In contrast to other types of mobile robots, legged robots can traverse irregular terrains, climb stairs, and step over obstacles. However, these unique properties intensify the energy demand and require highly advanced perception...

Effective emission control technologies and eco-friendly propulsion systems have been developed to decrease exhaust particle emissions. However, more work must be conducted on non-exhaust traffic-related sources such as tyre wear. The advent of automated vehicles (AVs) enables researchers and automotive manufacturers to consider ways to further...

Effectively controlling and exploiting the natural dynamics of Articulated Soft Robots for energy-efficient motions remains challenging. In literature, the problem is often split in two; in energy-efficient motion planning and structure-preserving control, where the focus is on one, and the other is largely disregarded. This work aims to unify...

Human computer models represent a useful tool for investigating the human body response to external static/dynamic loads or for human-centred design. Articulated Total Body (ATB) models are the simplest human multibody models, where body segments are represented by ellipsoids joined at skeletal articulations. Over the years, regression models...

Due to the continuously increasing volume of road freight transportation, there is a need to aid or automate truck-trailer driving. Truck docking, the process of parking a truck-trailer combination at a loading dock, is one of the most difficult manoeuvres for professional drivers. In this work, we propose a Model Predictive Control (MPC)-based...

In this work a new approach for the creation of Articulated Total Body (ATB) models for person-specific multi-body simulations is presented, with the main aim of overcoming limitations related to classical multi-ellipsoids ATB models, based on regression equations having only the weight and the height of the subject as input. The new...

Governments around the world are trying to seek economic development that is innovation-driven and inclusive. However, present-day societal and environmental challenges concerns are barriers to economic development. Mission-Oriented Innovation Policies are a powerful tool that acknowledges the importance of addressing these societal problems and...

A combination vehicle system consists of a lead vehicle that powers the motion, and one or more trailers that are towed by the lead vehicle. Any such vehicle system is unstable due to the presence of a coupling joint that disconnects the driver from the trailer. The risk of an accident is increased since many trailer parameters are variable and...

Thanks to their body elasticity, articulated soft robots promise to produce effective and robust oscillations with low energy consumption. This in turn is an important feature which can be exploited in the execution of many tasks, as for example locomotion. Yet, an established theory and general techniques allowing to excite and sustain these...

The graduation project is a playground in and around the former Post Office of Skopje which is composed of three main elements. Firstly, the terrain of the complex is divided into four main fields, which vary from their immediate surroundings towards the city. Furthermore, the element of the bridge, which grows with its tentacles into these...

Bio-receptivity is a natural growth of small plant species on stony surfaces with minimum external influence. It is commonly found around us on old buildings, crevices and corners, damp and moist areas. Bio-receptivity has always been viewed as a negative phenomenon in the public eye due to its random and shabby growth conditions. However, this...

Human beings can achieve a high level of motor performance that is still unmatched in robotic systems. These capabilities can be ascribed to two main enabling factors: (i) the physical proprieties of human musculoskeletal system, and (ii) the effectiveness of the control operated by the central nervous system. Regarding point (i), the...

The subject of this thesis is to investigate whether the Cerebellar Model Articulation Controller (CMAC) can be used to anticipate controller corrections and increase performance by reducing delays in humanoid robots. This question can be divided into two subquestions. Firstly, whether the CMAC is a suitable architecture for the prediction of...

The use of deployable structures for space telescopes has the advantage of enabling options to improve their optical performance and reducing the launch volume. The Deployable Space Telescope (DST), which is currently developed by the Space Systems Engineering (SSE) department, will make use of a high precision deployable structure to extend the...

Road safety is a prime concern in modern society. Statistics on traffic accidents show that articulated vehicles are overrepresented in fatal accidents. A third of all accidents happen during a vehicle maneuver with small lateral displacements: on-center handling. Stable guidance and handling behavior of the vehicle is mainly determined by its...

The goal of this study was to find an efficient method of energy transmission for application in an anthropomorphic underactuated body-powered (BP) prosthetic hand. A pulley-cable finger and a hydraulic cylinder finger were designed and tested to compare the pulley-cable transmission principle with the hydraulic cylinder transmission principle....

When a Tunnel Boring Machine (TBM) is driven in soft soil, the TBM-shield constantly interacts with the surrounding soil profile excavated by the cutting wheel. The interaction pattern of shield-soil interface displacements determines compression and extension sectors in the surrounding soil. Soil compression is generated when the shield...

Various steerable instruments with flexible distal tip have been developed for laparoscopic surgery. The problem of steering such instruments, however, remains a challenge, because no study investigated which control method is the most suitable. This study was designed to examine whether thumb (joystick) or wrist control method is designated for...

The analysis of multi-timepoint whole-body small animal CT data is greatly complicated by the varying posture of the subject at different timepoints. Due to these variations, correctly relating and comparing corresponding regions of interest is challenging. In addition, occlusion may prevent effective visualization of these regions of interest....
