Objective: Estimators to accurately monitor ventricular relaxation, cardiac contractility and cardiac output (CO) during support of a left ventricular assist device (LVAD), based on the left ventricular pressure (LVP) and pump-intrinsic signals, were developed. The aim was to continuously monitor these cardiac parameters, hereby tracking the...

In recent years, personalized recommender systems have been facing criticism in research due to their ability to trap users in their circle of choices, called "filter-bubble", thereby limiting their exposure to novel content. In solving the issue of filter-bubble, past research has focused on providing explanations to users about how a...

The detection of unusual behavior plays a crucial role in the prevention of illegal and harmful activities such as smuggling, piracy, arms trading, human trafficking and illegal immigration. Also for military applications, it is useful to detect anomalous behavior to provide an alert for potential threats, especially with the more recent...

Vibration-based structural health monitoring of civil engineering structures is receiving increasing attention in recent years. This is due to the development of more robust system identification techniques as well as improvements with regard to the practicality of installing the necessary instrumentation. Health monitoring systems are more...

The formation of scour holes is a vital thread of retaining the water infrastructure of rivers. Nowadays, protective filters are used to prevent washing away of the underlying material. Rijkswaterstaat started the program 'Stroomlijn’, in which trees (logs) are cut from the floodplains and placed in a sheltered zone of the river to test whether...

When the re brigade arrives at a burning building, it is of vital importance that people who are still inside can quickly be found. In this thesis we contribute to an ultrasonic sound sensor for human presence detection in smoke-lled spaces. This type of sensor could assist the re brigade when evacuating a large building by directing them to the...

The Wien filter is an important part in the multi-beam inspection microscope that is being developed at the Imaging Physics research group at the TU Delft. The multi-beam inspection microscope uses an array of 20x20 parallel beams with a pitch of 1mmthat scan the sample simultaneously. This way the low throughput of current scanning electron...

Zoetermeer is facing two challenges currently. The first is a housing program which is defined only at a superficial level. Secondly, the municipality has expressed the ambition to also take into account the migration of households, but has no data on which dwellings facilitate migrations the best. This research thus set out to first define the...

This research is aimed at breaking online political filter bubbles. We present a system that uses artificial intelligence and human computation to automatically collect article metadata on political content and thereby enables diverse personalization on content-serving platforms. This way, exploring alternative viewpoints could become as simple...

Flooding in cities, known as Urban Pluvial Flooding (UPF), causes disruption of society, damage to cities and inconvenience for people. Cities are expected to become more vulnerable to UPF due to more frequent and more intense extreme rainfall events with high spatial variability as result of climate change. Additionally increasing urbanisation...

This thesis explores the usage of the particle filter as a data assimilation technique to estimate subsurface processes, such as reservoir volume change from space-geodetic PS-InSAR surface measurements. The specific research area is Groningen, where subsidence is induced by hydrocarbon and salt production.
The satellite radar PS-InSAR...

In this research project we investigate a variety of different approaches. A key element in our endeavour is the localising of points of interest (POI’s). These POI’s are the approximate centre points of the cells, the corners or vertices of the cells, and also the cell walls in given directions. Using these POI’s we have built some intuitive...

It has become clear that the global energy system needs to shift away from fossil fuels towards clean, renewable energy sources. Experience in the past decades has shown that at-plate solar heat panels can play a role in the energy system of the future, in particular in solar collector fields for district heat generation. This thesis concerns...

Haptic shared control (HSC) is a method to combine the abilities of humans and machines, in which human and automation jointly exert forces on an input device. According to human-centered design, the underlying controller for HSC should closely resemble human behavior. This paper aims to continuously adapt HSC based on an online identified...

The TU Delft and the LUMC are creating a low-field MRI scanner to use in third world countries. This type of MRI scanner has many advantages, but a downside is the amount of noise in the obtained images. A way to reduce noise is diffusion filtering. This thesis discusses the theory of some linear and nonlinear diffusion filtering methods and...

At large oceans depths (5000m) manganese nodules are formed, these are rock shaped objects that contain various rare earth metals, Royal IHC is currently developing equipment to bring these nodules to the shore. The nodules will be transported to the water surface using a Vertical Transport System (VTS).

In the VTS insight of the...

Despite large scale application of performance- and risk management practices, project organisations struggle with responding adequately to early warning signs of project problems. This research investigates the main barriers in responding to early warning signs, and provides recommendations on how to deal with them, in order to stimulate the...

To prepare for future challenges, such as possible upcoming organic micro pollutants in the source water, including traces of medicines, pesticides, and industrial by-products, it is expected that the conventional treatment does not ensure a reliable quality of drinking water. As a result, during the past few years, Oasen started to research a...

Imaging sensors are remarkable devices which are able to capture moments and present them in a form available to us for years to come. With the use of material properties and photon particles, charges can be produced which, in combination with electric circuitry, transform into information understandable to the human eye and eventually the brain...
