This paper generalizes a previous formulation of signal separation problem for dynamic wind turbine clutter mitigation at weather radar systems. In this modified formulation, we use nonconvex regularizers together with multichannel overlapping group shrinkage (MOGS) to penalize weather signals and adopt multidimensional processing. We show the...

This paper describes an energy-efficient bridge readout IC (ROIC), which consists of a capacitively coupled instrumentation amplifier (CCIA) that drives a continuous-time delta–sigma modulator (CTM). By exploiting the CCIA’s ability<br/>to block dc common-mode voltages, the bridge’s bias voltage may exceed the ROIC’s supply voltage, allowing...

Metaphors are commonly used in interface design within Human-Computer Interaction (HCI). Interface metaphors provide users with a way to interact with the computer that resembles a known activity, giving instantaneous knowledge or intuition about how the interaction works. A widely used one in Digital Musical Instruments (DMIs) is the conductor...

In the physical sciences and engineering domains, music has traditionally been considered an acoustic phenomenon. From a perceptual viewpoint, music is naturally associated with hearing, i.e., the audio modality. Moreover, for a long time, the majority of music recordings were distributed through audio-only media, such as vinyl records,...

Background: Ever since the introduction of laparoscopic surgery, researchers have been trying to add steerability to instruments to allow the surgeon to operate with better reachability and less tissue interaction force. Traditional solutions to introduce this often use a combination of springs, cables, pulleys, and guiding structures,...

The issue of urban resilience concerns a multitude of urban systems and spaces. This thesis focuses on Urban River Corridors (URCs)—that is, urban spaces where the overlap between the urban systems (carrying the ’social-‘) and the river system (carrying the ‘-ecological’) is at the highest intensity—as strategic spaces with a potentially high...

Het doel van de verkenning is het uitbouwen en verspreiding van kennis over het gebruik van ‘sociale’ locatiegegevens door de overheid. Tijdens de verkenning wordt inzicht gegeven in de rol die locatiedata van sociale media en aan sociale media gerelateerde applicaties spelen bij de wederzijdse communicatie tussen de overheid en de burger. Door...

In recent years cooperatives for renewable energy supply (REScoops) have emerged as important new actors in energy markets. They provide their members (i.e., households) with renewably generated energy within a cooperative model that enables members to co-decide on its strategic and tactical goals, plans and business model. REScoops do not only...

The housing sector is responsible for a more than a quarter of the total final energy consumption in the EU. As the majority (70%) of the EU-housing stock is owner occupied and largely consists of single family dwellings it is understandable that many countries focus their energy saving policies on homeowners. Complementary to the national...

Accurate continuous measurements of relative humidity (RH) vertical profiles in the lower troposphere have become a significant scientific challenge. In recent years a synergy of various ground-based remote sensing instruments have been successfully used for RH vertical profiling, which has resulted in the improvement of spatial resolution...

There is an increasing demand for low power, low voltage, and small size analog readout bio-potential systems. This paper presents an analog front-end for measuring the intra-cardiac signals in implantable and also external ambulatory ECG cardiac recording applications. The analog front-end benefits from voltage to frequency conversion...

Radio frequency ablation is commonly used in the treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma. Clinicians rely on imaging techniques, such as medical ultrasound, to confirm an accurate needle placement. This accuracy may improve by means of active needle steering techniques, which are currently in development. Needle steering will likely increase the...

Residential energy efficiency improvements often have a smaller effect than expected. Although there is agreement on the existence of this effect, called the rebound effect, there is no agreement on the size of the effect. The objective of this study was to investigate the potential of using serious games to assess this effect. We used a game...

Reflection-mode terahertz (THz) imaging of corneal tissue water content (CTWC) is a proposed method for early accurate detection and study of corneal diseases. Despite promising results from ex vivo and in vivo cornea studies, interpretation of the reflectivity data is confounded by the contact between corneal tissue and dielectric windows used...

The stringent and conflicting requirements imposed on optomechanical instruments and the ever-increasing need for higher resolution and quality imagery demands a tightly integrated system design approach. Our aim is to drive the thermomechanical design of multiple components through the optical performance of the complete system. To this end,...

Instrumental intelligibility metrics are commonly used as an alternative to listening tests. This paper evaluates 12 monaural intrusive intelligibility metrics: SII, HEGP, CSII, HASPI, NCM, QSTI, STOI, ESTOI, MIKNN, SIMI, SIIB, and sEPSM<sup>corr</sup>. In addition, this paper investigates the ability of intelligibility metrics to generalize...

The growing demand of processing power is being satisfied mainly by an increase in the number of homogeneous and heterogeneous computing cores in a system. Efficient utilization of these architectures demands analysis of memory-access behaviour of applications and perform data-communication aware mapping of applications on these architectures....

A technique to create aspheric surface shapes on commercially available electrowetting liquid lenses is demonstrated. Based on a previously published surface oscillation model a technique using a Hankel transform is proposed and tested experimentally. An alternating actuation voltage is applied to the liquid lens to stimulate surface...
