Energy-efficient train control (EETC) has been studied a lot over the last decades, because it contributes to cost savings and reduction of CO<sub>2</sub> emissions. The aim of EETC is to minimize total traction energy consumption of a train run given the running time in the timetable. Most research is focused to apply mechanical braking on...

Updated and detailed indoor models are being increasingly demanded for various applications such as emergency management or navigational assistance. The consolidation of new portable and mobile acquisition systems has led to a higher availability of 3D point cloud data from indoors. In this work, we explore the combined use of point clouds...

The integration of computer vision and photogrammetry to generate three-dimensional (3D) information from images has contributed to a wider use of point clouds, for mapping purposes. Large-scale topographic map production requires 3D data with high precision and accuracy to represent the real conditions of the...

The energy consumption of trains is highly efficient due to the low friction between steel wheels and rails, although the efficiency is also influenced largely by the driving strategy applied and the scheduled running times in the timetable. Optimal energy-efficient driving strategies can reduce operating costs significantly and contribute to a...

In this thesis we develop techniques for solving problems in extremal geometry. We give an infinite dimensional generalization of moment techniques from polynomial optimization. We use this to construct semidefinite programming hierarchies for approximating optimal packing densities and ground state energies of particle systems. For this we...

Embedded systems are getting into various domains of our daily life as well as in many of the highly sophisticated large systems, such as air planes, military tanks, rockets, satellites. These large systems consist of many modules which are executing umpteen number of tasks semi-independently. However, not all tasks have the same levels of...

The safety of offshore pipelines during installation has drawn a great deal of attention due to the combined actions of high external pressure, axial tension and bending moment. Subsea pipelines have the tendency to rotate during installation. This rotation can have multiple causes which are interfering with each other. During S-lay installation...

Energy-efficient train operation is not yet included in the timetable design process in the Netherlands. Hence, running time supplements are not optimally distributed in the timetable. Therefore research has been conducted on the possibilities to better incorporate energy-efficient train operation into the railway timetable. This paper describes...

Control over the interaction of droplets with solid surfaces is commonplace in nature. Famous examples are the water-shedding capabilities of the lotus leaf and the water-harvesting skin of certain types of beetles. To date, this type of control remains a challenge in engineering applications. Consider, for example, droplets on the windscreen of...
