Recognising the user’s locomotive intentions is crucial for the correct functionality of exoskeletons and active orthoses. For gait applications, extrapolating control inputs from the arm swing may be worthwhile, since arm oscillations naturally occur during human locomotion. A similar method would be unaffected by severe impairments of the...

The area surveillance problem is the problem of surveying a known or an unknown area with the main purpose of detecting objects. This thesis will tackle the problem of how to employ a group of mobile-sensors for surveying an unobstructed area in an optimal manner. The mobile-sensors should make use of their onboard computers and they should...

The Space@Sea platform is a sustainable offshore modular platform designed for a workspace at sea as an effort in coping up with the economic growth and allocating marine resources to more efficient uses. There are four potential applications of the platform: farming, transport & logistics hub, energy hub, and living spaces. In the case of...

Over the past two decades, a number of methods have been proposed for solving maritime collision avoidance problems. Most of these works take a single ship's perspective and focus on one-to-one or one-to-many situations. To more complicated many-to-many situations, less attention has been paid. To deal with the many-to-many collision...

Increased international marine transport has increased the use of containers. This goes hand in hand with the increased demand for well-functioning container terminals. The speed at which containers can be handled on the container terminal is an important performance indicator for container terminals. In particular, the productivity of the Quay...

Each day, airlines face disturbances that disrupt their carefully planned operations. Events like adverse weather conditions, sick crew members, or damaged aircraft often result in delays in the airline's schedule. An airline recovers from such disruptions through the role played by its Airline Operations Control (AOC). A Multi-Agent System ...

Wind energy currently is one of the most attractive solutions to help in the goal of switching to a more sustainable way of energy production. To stay competitive with other forms of energy production, the reduction of the Levelized Cost of Energy (LCoE) is an important indicator. One way of achieving this goal is by increasing the size of...

In this paper, we develop a hierarchical approach to optimize the signal timings in an urban traffic network taking into account the different dynamics in all traffic regimes. The proposed hierarchical control framework consists of two layers. The first layer--the network coordination layer--uses a model predictive control strategy based on a...

Arterial traffic signal coordination makes traffic flow more efficient and safer. This paper presents a partition-enabled multi-mode band (PM-BAND) model that is designed to solve the signal coordination problem for arterials with multiple modes, i.e., passenger cars and transit vehicles. The proposed method permits the progression bands to...

The Air Traffic Management research community expects that the responsibility of maintaining a minimum safe separation distance between aircraft will move from the groundbased Air Traffic Control, a centralized system, towards the flight deck, a decentralized system. Previous research on the decentralized, also known as distributed Air Traffic...

Energization overvoltages are among the severest overvoltages stressing insulations of EHV power system components. Since these overvoltages have a statistical nature, the insulation level should be determined with the use of a statistical approach by which the distribution of overvoltages is calculated. Literature has properly studied the...

With the trend of increasing wind turbine rotor diameters, the mitigation of blade fatigue loadings is of special interest to extend the turbine lifetime. Fatigue load reductions can be partly accomplished using individual pitch control (IPC) facilitated by the so-called multiblade coordinate (MBC) transformation. This operation transforms...

In finite-element computations, one often needs to calculate integrals of products of powers of monomials over simplexes. In this manuscript, we prove a generalisation of the exact integration formula that was reported and proved for two-dimensional simplexes by Holand & Bell in 1969. We extend the proof to n-dimensional simplexes and to...

Fluidised beds are used in a variety of processes because of their favourable mass and heat transfer characteristics. In this and many other processes, non-spherical particles are commonplace, which can drastically affect the fluidisation behaviour. In this study, we use numerical models to study non-spherical fluidisation behaviour in detail...

In transit corridors, multiple lines share a sequence of consecutive stops to provide higher joint frequency in higher demand areas. A key challenge is to coordinate the transition from single line to joint operation. A holding control strategy aimed at minimizing passenger travel times is introduced for lines merging into a shared corridor,...

This research entails the numerical simulation of physical flow instabilities that can occur in two-phase pipe flows with a new efficient algorithm. The fluids are assumed to be immiscible, and the flow is incompressible and isothermal in a straight circular pipe section with a certain inclination. The numerical algorithm that was developed...

In the Netherlands, PostNL and Prime Vision are working together on the development of a new sorting system, using a multi-robot approach. This master thesis takes place within this ambitious project. The objective of this dissertation is the design of an effective and robust multi-robot parcel-sorting system, in which robots need to sort and...

This research concerns the analysis of the organisation of transport of cut flowers from Dutch growers. The performance of transport in the current supply chain is analysed with a focus on the total transport costs, and the service level which is primarily defined by the lead time of products. Based on the assessment of the current performance...

This paper has its focus on the accessibility, interoperability and quality of different point cloud datasets. The main objective of the project is to research the process of harmonizing point cloud datasets of different origins and to incorporate the integrated datasets in a web viewer that allows for visualization and analysis. As a case study...
