Wind energy plays a major role in the ongoing energy transition. To accelerate the adoption of wind energy and thereby the energy transition, the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCOE) has to be minimized. Apart from increasing turbine performance, reducing turbine down-time can contribute to lowering the LCOE.Down-time is defined as time during which...

Nowadays with the growth of social media, users upload millions of photos in different platforms online. Researchers in the field of computer vision devote their time and effort to analyze images in order to gain valuable insight. Data
analysis and classification can be impeded by different factors. One of which is the image filters that are...

Imagine standing under a load with a weight equivalent to more than 5,000 Tesla’s model X. Panicking is not an option and you need to be fully focused on completing a crucial task. There is no option to leave this precarious situation and your contribution is vital to the success of a multi-million dollar project. Sounds frightening, right?...

The competitiveness of the maritime sector together with energetic and environmental challenges have promoted a demand for more efficient marine vehicles. In response to this, research campaigns have been conducted, with the aim of developing new technologies. One of these technologies is the application of hydrofoils (e.g.: a Hull Vane) to...

In the range of applications opened by quantum technology, often a highly entangled source state is needed as an input for a protocol (target state). The easiest example of such an application is QKD, other examples are quantum secret sharing and measurement based quantum computing. Generating a non-local entangled state is however not trivial....

To date, an unprecedented number of 65 million people around the world have been displaced. Of this, 25.4 million are refugees. In Europe, almost three million people claimed asylum in the EU between 2015 and 2016. However there has been relatively little discussion within the architectural community as to how architecture should engage with and...

Recent advances in Artificial Intelligence and Computer Vision have been showed to be promising for automated land use classification of remotely sensed data. However, current state-of-the-art per-pixel segmentation networks fail to accurately capture geometrical and topological properties on land use segmentation, as these methods have...

One of the most promising ideas in autonomous vehicle control systems is letting the vehicle drive autonomously outside the normal, linear, operating region and letting it "drift". By doing so, the maneuverability of the vehicle could be enhanced. To enable systems that can control this behaviour, estimation of certain vehicle states is needed...

Autonomous MAV are an emerging technology that supports a wide range of applications such as medical delivery or finding survivors in disaster scenarios. As flying in such missions is difficult the robust estimation of an MAV's state within its environment is crucial to ensure safe operation. In indoor scenarios, cameras are one of the...

Human Computation (HC) has established itself to be a powerful tool for carrying out certain simple and repetitive tasks in the form of microtasks, which to this day are still difficult for a machine to automate.
With the latest increase in interest in machine learning, HC has similarly gotten more attention as a popular way to acquire...

Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), also known as brittle bone disease, affects 1 in 10.000 births. This disease is characterized by skeletal dysplasias, bone fragility and many secondary health issues. It is a heritable disorder affecting collagen type I, which is an essential protein in bone tissue. Post-translational overmodifications in collagen...

Rabobank is currently planning a complete transition of its services to the public
cloud. Currently there are around 400 DevOps teams that need to make the
transition from deployment on traditional on-premise infrastructure, to deploying their products to the public cloud. The thesis project investigates what are some of the biggest...

Quantum computers seem very promising in solving problems that are too large to be solved by classical computers that are available today. However, to generate reasonable amounts of computing power, many qubits will be required. Each of the qubits has to be individually controlled and needs to be kept at cryogenic temperatures. To allow for the...

Quantum computers are able to deal with large problems, like molecular modelling, financial prediction and cryptography. A classical controller is used to control the qubits of the quantum computer. A proposed controller, operating at 4K, needs a clean voltage supply in order to function well. The long interconnects between the room temperature...

Convolutional neural networks are showing incredible performance in image classification, segmentation, object detection and other computer vision applications in recent years. But they lack understanding of affine transformations to input data. In this work, we introduce rotational invariant
convolutional neural networks that learn...

More than half a century after the first application of composite materials in aircraft, the accurate prediction of their failure remains a pressing and unresolved issue. Another important limitation continues to be the low transverse strength of unidirectional composite plies, which can lead to premature failure in common laminates such as the...

Burn injuries can lead to serious complications that have a large influence on someone’s quality of life. In order to help patients, we need to gain insight into the wound healing process and in the development of complications that come with serious burn injuries. The final goal would be to prevent or at least reduce these complications. With a...

With the advances towards a quantum computer incorporating many qubits, the demand for a scalable readout and control platform rises. Recent proposals for such a platform exploit the maturity of CMOS technology, to implement the various analog, RF and digital circuits required. To allow for scaling, the electronics that constitute this platform...

Escape the Smart City is a critical pervasive game for creating awareness about the implications of AI-surveillance technology in the smart city. It responds to growing concerns over the mass deployment of surveillance cameras that are enhanced with artificial intelligence (AI) which are turning the cities into digital panopticons (Sadowski &...
