With the development of biomedical technology such as optogenetics, optoelectronics devices, especially light-emitting diode(LED), becomes wildly used in biomedical researches and applications. Unlike traditional illumination and display applications, biomedical applications have more unique requirements like intensity and response speed. The...

The automotive industry is foreseeing a future where driver and car will form a synergy, by allowing the car to predict the driver’s intent. Nissan has already successfully predicted the intent to make lane changes in a driving simulator with just six electroencephalography (EEG) electrodes on the movement related cortical potential using...

Road safety is still a challenging issue. In 2020, 1.35 million people have died as a result of traffic accidents, where the number one cause of death for young adults between the age of 5 and 29 is car accidents. In an attempt to improve road safety, the automotive industry has developed numerous types of Advanced Driver Assistance Systems ...

Biogas is a sustainable and circular technology with a large potential to positively impact developing nations such as Ethiopia. However, international endeavors that initiate or install such technologies in developing nations often fade over time or even fail. This thesis evaluates what the common barriers and drivers of entrepreneurs of such...

Problem Definition According to the World Health Organization, traffic injuries have become the eighth cause of death and the leading cause among children and young adults. Human error, and in particular perceptual error, is among the most frequently reported causes of road fatalities. The desire to reduce traffic fatalities has led to the...

A lack of understanding of ecosystem-related projects and scarcity of natural capital reimbursement mechanisms leads to passive involvement and hesitation from the private sector when investing in nature. This study conducts a systematic literature review, furnishes a database of the relevant barriers and drivers for the private investment in...

In recent years, implementing a circular economy in cities (or “circular cities”) has been proposed by policy makers as a potential solution for achieving sustainability. One strategy for circular cities is to reintroduce manufacturing into urban areas (or “urban manufacturing”), allowing resource flows to be localized at the city scale. However...

This paper aims to find a mathematical justification for the non-linear steady state steering haptic response as a function of driver arm posture. Experiments show that different arm postures, that is, same hands location on the steering wheel but at different initial steering angles, result in a change in maximum driver arm stiffness. This...

The occurrence of natural vegetation at a given time is determined by interplay of multiple drivers. The effects of several drivers, e.g., geomorphology, topography, climate variability, accessibility, demographic indicators, and changes in human activities on the occurrence of natural vegetation in the severe drought periods and, prior to...

Future vehicles may drive automatically in a human-like manner or contain systems that monitor human driving ability. Algorithms of these systems must have knowledge of criteria of good and safe driving behavior with regard to different driving styles. In the current study, interviews were conducted with 30 drivers, including driving...

The increasing passenger demand for rail service in the Netherlands, urges the Dutch infrastructure manager (IM) ProRail to increase network capacity. Instead of building new infrastructure, ProRail promotes information and communications technology solutions which aim for a more efficient utilization of the existing infrastructure. One of the...

Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) aim to increase safety and reduce mental workload. However, the gap in the understanding of the closed-loop driver-vehicle interaction often leads to reduced user acceptance. In this research, an optimal torque control law is calculated online in the Model Predictive Control (MPC) framework to guarantee...

Haptic feedback from the steering wheel is one of the most important cues for driver to vehicle interaction. The right feedback is provided by ensuring that the haptic controller provides the required steering feel. Steering feel assessment and design is divided into a subjective and objective approach. The subjective approach entails...

The question of how well in terms of safety can a driver take over control of an automated vehicle in response to an emergency situation is of crucial importance. Most of the studies performed so far focus on the drivers’ reaction times and the mechanisms behind the transition. In this study, an effort is made to incorporate the braking times...

The resiliency of coral reef islands to changing environments associated with climate change is controlled by the delicate balance between the import and export of sediment. The majority of the sediment is derived from coral reefs for which the stability of these islands is directly related to reef health. Understanding the sediment signature...

Pedestrians today are very vulnerable on urban roads. Clear communication between drivers and pedestrians is one way to reduce their plight. Non-verbal communication in particular plays an important role in road safety, and eye contact is a kind of non-verbal communication that has the potential to minimize on-road collisions. However, with the...

To exploit its socio-economic functions, engineering measures are regularly applied in estuaries. Estuaries are, however, known to be very complex systems. Stemming from this complexity is the generation of a so-called estuarine turbidity maximum (ETM), which poses great siltation problems to the engineering measures. An engineering measure,...

The objective of this study was identifying factors that contribute to Dutch electric vehicle (EV) drivers’ acceptance of vehicle-to-grid (V2G) at long-term parking lots. The results of this study aim to help V2G system designers to improve the quality of bi-directional V2G charging services for EV users and to foster V2G acceptance. The...

Ride-sourcing has recently been at the centre of attention as the most disruptive mode of transport associated with the so-called shared mobility era. Drivers, riders, the platform, policymakers, and the general public are considered as the main stakeholders of the system. While ride-sourcing platforms have been growing, so did the heightened...
