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...

Worldwide 8-16% of the people are affected by chronic kidney disease (CKD). If the CKD is undetected, people have the risk to develop progressive loss of kidney function, which can lead to kidney failure. People with kidney failure will need dialysis to take over the kidney function. For the hemodialysis a vascular access is needed, currently...

Pulmonary arterial hypertension (PAH) is a complex, progressive disease characterized by an increased mean pulmonary arterial pressure at rest, and is associated with a high rate of mortality due to right ventricular failure as the disease progresses. While numerous animal and cell culture models have been created in an attempt to better...

Introduction | Cardiovascular diseases (CVD) are the number one cause of death worldwide. Individuals with a high risk of developing CVD are nowadays mainly treated with cholesterol lowering drugs. Although disease risk can be lowered by a maximum of 40% in this way, a significant untreatable residual risk is left. Therefore, there is a big...

Although front and back contact silicon heterojunction solar cells exhibit promising external parameters, they are limited by the front highly absorptive doped layers. Due to their opto-electronic properties, research and development groups have demonstrated that transition metal oxides (TMO) are potential alternatives for doped layers in solar...

The poly-Si IBC topology is one of the most promising silicon solar cell designs and has already achieved &gt;26% efficiency. In this work we optimise the front surface field (FSF) and apply rear hydrogenation to the poly-Si IBC structure developed by the TU Delft PVMD group. An investigation is also made of a PECVD tunnel oxide as a replacement...

The built environment contributes with 39% of the CO2 emissions in the world [3]. At the same time it is a sector that is expected to grow from US$10.9 trillion (2017) to US$12.9 trillion (2022) [4]. A sector with such an economic growth but with a negative environmental impact needs to innovate in order to reduce its carbon footprint. These are...

Hydrogenated Indium Oxide (IOH) has been recognized as a high performance transparent conductive oxide (TCO) due to its excellent mobility (&gt;100 cm2/Vs) and high transparency (&gt;90%) in the visible and near infrared region of the spectrum. Plasma enhanced spatial atomic layer deposition (PESALD), a new type of deposition process developed...

Cancer metastasis, the spread of cancer to distant organs, is the major cause of cancerrelated mortality. Hence, understanding the mechanisms underlying cancer metastasis is crucial to improve clinical interventions. Despite intensive efforts, the driving mechanisms remain ill-understood due to the difficulties posed by studying the different...

The negative effects of global warming can already be noticed. The burning of fossil fuel not only contributes to global warming, but also to the reduction of air quality, especially in urban areas. In order to limit the climate change, as well as to improve the air quality, more and more vehicles are replaced by emission free versions. This...

The main goal of this Electrical Engineering Bachelor project is to build a solar-power system for a quad-copter that will extend its battery life or rather its flight time. The complete system is comprised of a PV system (PV), a micro-controller (MC) and a DC/DC converter (DC) which was mounted onto the drone. On each subsystem, a separate...

Experimental data have been extracted from wound-healing time-lapse videos. These data include the detection of the area of the wound and the detection of individual cells. Extracting the area of the wound is done by using a function in Python OpenCV called cv2.findcontours. An improved method to extract the area of the wound is introduced as...

The Netherlands is a densely populated country with a congested road and railway network. Therefore more and more highways are widened and expanded. These wider highways create a demand for bridges which are suited for longer spans. These bridge solutions should constructed with a minimum of hindrance for other traffic. Rijkswaterstaat, also...

Photovoltaic (PV) system yield prediction models are an important topic in the field of PV solar energy. An accurate prediction model could not only be used for optimising the PV system design, but is also expected to realise the yield potential of innovative PV technologies. In the next generation of PV technologies, one of the most promising...

Comparing spreadsheet files is a new, unexplored research domain in computer science. Methods for regular file comparison are not straightforwardly applicable to spreadsheet files, because they are fundamentally different. Spreadsheets are binary files, the structure of spreadsheets is two-dimensional, they contain both data and calculations,...

Analyzing the different signaling pathways of cells is key in understanding the basic functions of the cells in all organic systems from algae to humans. Not only do they help solve our questions on how organisms function, they also allow for new cures to be explored. A large variety of these signaling pathways can be influenced by light and can...

To achieve significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions in shipping and enable ship owners to phase out fossil fuels entirely, renewable fuels, such as ammonia, play a crucial role. Ammonia is considered a balanced solution in terms of volumetric energy density and renewable synthetic production cost compared to other renewable fuels....

Carrier-selective passivating contacts (CSPC) are one of the most promising silicon solar cell contact structures. These contacts enable the passivation of the silicon surface as well as a high carrier selectivity. So far excellent results have been demonstrated with the use of poly-Si in stack with SiO2. In this work, we optimize an alternative...
