Traffic is a self-organising, regulated system, but there are several ambiguous situations where no rules apply. In such situations, communication is important in order to achieve a smooth traffic flow and a safe situation. However, in the majority of traffic conflicts, adequate coordination between road users is lacking. Communication is...

A large number of pedestrian fatalities and the emergence of autonomous vehicles (AVs) creates a need for research in vehicle to pedestrian (V2P) interaction. Gestures (e.g., hand movement, eye contact) used for communication between pedestrians and manually driven vehicle plays a significant role to reduce ambiguities and make safe road...

Material possession has become our objective for existence. Capital surrounds and defines us. The high dynamics of global flows dominate the planetary web of connectivity. Consumption, production and assembly have become the holy trinity of the neo-liberal realm we live in. It is a manifestation of the global dynamics, neglecting distances,...

The ability to locate specific objects within images is an essential step in various computer vision based engineering applications. Image segmentation is the task of dividing an image into "segments" that are uniform as well as homogeneous with respect to some characteristics, for example grey tone or texture as in Haralick et al. This thesis...

This project initiates by looking at the space as a territory (Raffestin, 2012), constructed through social interactions and networks. I believe the design project must anticipate the global social and economic shifts that are present within the territory of the North Sea and must be shaped in relation to the effects of these changes on local...

The project investigates the possibility of integrating new technological processes into the public realm in the city of Prague. This will act as a statement against the legacy of the new industrial capitalism, which has disconnected production, distribution and consumption spaces in the city. The focus is the design of a grocery re-distribution...

Since the introduction of the car, our use of mobility is continuously growing (Kennisinstituut voor Mobiliteitsbeleid, 2018). Which leads to highly polluted areas, affecting urban health. Besides, the growing mobility results in a higher number of traffic accidents on the main road network (NU.nl, 2017). And not only growing mobility, but also...
