The current ATC system is seen as the most significant limitation to coping with an increased air traffic density. Transitioning towards an ATC system with a high degree of automation is essential to cope with future traffic demand of the airspace. In recent studies, reinforcement learning has shown promising results automating Conflict...

A smart home can be defined as a system of connected devices that are controlled remotely from one central place. Smart home solutions used to be for early adopters who like the novel and fun part of this new technology. Currently the smart Home market is moving to mainstream users. Hombli is a smart home brand established in 2019 in the...

In conditionally automated driving, drivers should be free to engage in non-driving-related tasks until warned by the system to take over. Over-reliance on automation can lead to dangerous driving behaviour such as engagement in non-related driving tasks during the transition phase and delayed response to take over requests. Take-over time and...

Everything around us is rapidly changing. Whole new blocks of buildings are built, huge infrastructural projects are constructed and so on. Hence, there is a need of a reliable and up-to-date inventory of the area and the objects of interest for mapping and monitoring assets and their changes. An answer of this upcoming need is an automated...

To optimize steel halls for this thesis, an optimization tool is created. This tool creates a parametric model and optimizes this model to its costs. The connections in the tool are limited to beam-column connections. <br/>The optimization starts with the input variables of the model, the most important input variable is the type of the beam...

Recent years have shown a tremendous increase in the application of Artificial Intelligence to the field of radiology, often through the extraction and analysis of large numbers of quantitative features from medical images. These applications increase the demand for machine learning models to extract information from these images. To provide...

Interacting with cyclists is a difficult challenge for Automated Vehicles (AVs). It is important that the introduction of AVs does not lead to a decrease in cyclist safety. This study presents a new methodology that is developed to assess road safety between AVs and cyclists. Surrogate Measures of Safety are identified specifically for the...

The aerospace industry increasingly uses fibre-reinforced plastics that are manufactured using automated fibre placement (AFP). A common problem in AFP is the occurrence of gaps and overlaps that affect the structural perfromance of laminates. Tow width fluctuation is an important cause of gaps and overlaps. Two developments in manufacturing are...

The combination of a relatively recent emissions scandal and the ever growing incentive to provide sustainable transportation solutions, led to the fact that the transition to electrically propelled land-based vehicles is more prominent than ever. All prominent European car-makers announced diverse fully and partially electric product portfolios...

Much of the Dutch infrastructure was built in the 1960s and 1970s and includes an estimated 55.000 bridges and viaducts. These aging structures have reached the end of their designed service life or will reach it in the short term. It is estimated that 15% of these structures have a box-shaped cross-section as being reinforced concrete...

Automated vehicles (AVs) are on the horizon, and they are expected to deliver traffic safety and efficiency benefits to transportation systems. There are different automation levels for AVs based on the functionalities of the automation systems and their operating design domain (i.e., on which conditions these functionalities can be realized)....

Cryogenic electron tomography (cryo-ET) is currently the golden standard for imaging cellular tissue at nanometer resolution. The current workflow from cultured cells to final image is however very time-consuming, labor-intensive, expensive, and has a low yield. Moreover, many of the steps in this workflow require practice. Even after practice,...

Most of cyclists’ fatalities originate from collisions with motorized vehicles. It is expected that automated vehicles (AV) will be safer than human-driven vehicles, but this depends on the nature of interactions between non-automated road users, among them cyclists. Little research on the interactions between cyclists and AVs exists. This...

In the aerospace industry, the Automated Fiber Placement process is an established method for producing composite parts. Nowadays the required visual inspection, subsequent to this process, typically takes up to 50% of the total manufacturing time and the inspection quality strongly depends on the inspector. A Deep Learning based...

Future automated vehicles may be equipped with external Human-Machine Interfaces (eHMIs). Currently, little is known about the effect of the perspective of the eHMI message on crossing decisions of pedestrians. We performed an experiment to examine the effects of images depicting eHMI messages of different perspectives (egocentric from the...
