An autonomous vehicle should be able to operate amidst numerous other human-driven vehicles, each driving on its own trajectory. To safely navigate in such a dynamic environment, the autonomous vehicle should be able to predict trajectories of the vehicles operating in its vicinity and use these to plan its own path. Most related work uses a...

Mobile robots need to be fully autonomous in order to perform their tasks inside their environment. To do that, robots need to have an understanding of their environment, so that they can successfully localize and navigate themselves within it. The understanding of the robots' environment is created by solving the SLAM (Simultaneous Localization...

The recent advancement of the autonomous vehicle has raised the need for reliable environmental perception. This is evident, as an autonomous vehicle has to perceive and interpret its local environment in order to execute reactive and predictive control action. Object Tracking is an integral part of vehicle perception, as it enables the vehicle...

Path tracing has been successfully utilized in modern animated films to produce photorealistic images. However, with path tracing being a Monte Carlo method, a large amount of light paths must be sampled to reduce image noise to acceptable levels. Although a wide variety of acceleration and importance sampling techniques have been developed to...

Polder areas as typical in the Netherlands require real time control on the water levels. Efficient pumping is a subject with increasing interest due to a required use of 20% green energy by 2020 set by the government. In 2010, the energy requirements already exceeded 175 GWh per year. For optimal control, water level predictions are important....

Insufficient information on soil parameters and their spatial variability pose as a main factors of uncertainty in geotechnical design. When soil response differs from the expected, the notion of inverse analysis becomes relevant; back-calculating the parameter set able to reproduce the monitored observations. Accordingly, its application...

Time-frequency analysis and digital signal processing are important tools in the field of coastal engineering. Both can be done using techniques like Fourier or wavelet analysis, however, analysts from this field experience a threshold to use wavelet analysis instead of their current methods, often Fourier-based. This is due to the lack of...

Offshore excavators are large hydraulically driven machines which are difficult to control due to slow dynamics, inherent nonlinearities, a varying environment and complex kinematics. As digging is performed under water, only limited visual feedback of the task can be provided by means of a visualization interface. Operators require an extensive...

A petroleum production system is generally modelled based on the concept of nodal analysis, where the entire system is broken down into discrete elements such as near-well bore, tubing, surface choke and flow line. Operating flow rates and pressures can be estimated with a nodal analysis procedure by calculation of the intersection of...

A start-up creates videos which users can watch to experience their running or cycling activity all over again. Currently, the company depends on external data sources to generate a video. To be less dependent on these sources the company wants to create their own tracking solution. This solution has to fit in their existing smartphone...

Current trailers and caravans use overrun brakes, which cause overheated brakes in the mountains. A solution is to design an electric brake system in which the brakes are controlled electronically instead of mechanically. The report discusses the control models associated with braking, anti-sway detection and velocity sensor fusion. The RDW...

In the world of DC railway trains nowadays, asynchronous-traction machine with traction controllers, i.e. an inverter with variable output frequency, is implemented. This controller changes the incoming DC voltage into an AC voltage of a variable frequency and RMS amplitude. The disadvantages of switching inverters, compared to a pure sine wave...

Floods are a big problem for Jakarta; the capital of Indonesia is subsiding below mean sea level and floods will become more frequent. Flood protection and measures against subsidence are, therefore, of high importance to Jakarta’s government. One of the options they are studying is a great sea wall to regulate the water levels in Jakarta Bay....

Re-entry is a term that is applied when one would like to transport some (human) payload from an orbit around a certain body towards the surface of that body. With an entry velocity of multiple kilometers per second, having the vehicle carrying this payload not smashed into pieces at the end of flight is one of the key points of re-entry. Using...

Experiments in a closed-cycle cryostat suffer from vibrations caused by its pulse tube. To reduce this disturbance, a vibration isolator needs to be placed inside the cryostat. Since mechanical dampers do not work in a cryogenic environment, it requires active damping. This thesis is about the design of a controller for such an active vibration...

Injuries are a sportsman’s worst nightmare: They withhold players from playing, they weaken teams and they force clubs to buy a bench-full of substitutes. On top of that, injuries can cause an awful lot of pain. Regulating match and training intensity can drastically decrease the risk of getting injured. Furthermore, it can optimally prepare...
