Owen, C.C. (author)
The imminence of anthropogenic climate change has motivated a global energy transition towards sustainable power generation. Offshore wind—an important contributor to the energy transition—is expanding, not only in turbine size and number of installations, but also into regions with harsher environmental conditions. One of those conditions in...

Several useful technologies to help people with dementia already exist. Robotic pets, for example, have been shown to alleviate negative symptoms associated with dementia. Most robotic pets, however, only have pet-like functionality. This is useful on its own, but adding additional care functionality would be helpful. A different useful tool for...

With the advancement of Artificial Intelligence leading to increasingly human-like outputs, assessing a machine’s ability to exhibit human-like intelligence has become more essential than ever. This study aims to investigate how human-like chess players perceive four conditions: one human opponent and three different types of algorithms. One of...

While the assumption of incompressible flow has been the prevailing standard for numerical simulations of wind turbine aerodynamics, the limit of this assumption is approached as the industry progresses towards increasingly higher operational tip speeds. This thesis explores the implications of compressibility and transonic flow phenomena,...

Scarí, Federico (author)
As autonomous vehicle (AV) technology progresses, the necessity for a comprehensive understanding of interactions between AVs and human-driven vehicles (HVs) becomes paramount, particularly in critical manoeuvres such as merging. Mastering merging interactions is essential for enhancing road safety. Existing research in this field focuses on how...

The promotion of desirable behaviours, such as socially appropriate or health-promoting actions, can be bolstered through a deeper understanding and awareness of the values that underpin the associated behavioural choices. Various implementations for promoting behaviour change based on goals already exist in Human-Robot Interaction, but, since...

With the increasing development of artificial intelligence (AI), there is a more significant opportunity for humans and agents to collaborate in teamwork. In Human-Agent Teamwork (HAT) settings, collaboration requires communication, and the agent displaying emotion can impact how human teammates communicate and work together with the agent. This...

Coggins, T.N. (author)
In the introduction of this thesis, I contend that robot ethics, as a research field, generally treats privacy as the appropriate distribution of information, and therefore overlooks privacy concerns raised by robots beyond this conceptualization’s purview. I illustrate this contention by evaluating a hypothetical case involving a household...

Tabone, W. (author)
This thesis explores how automated vehicles will interact with pedestrians in the urban environment through augmented reality technology. Nine distinct AR interfaces were designed, developed, and evaluated to assess how different design elements (symbols, text, colour) and distinct mappings of the AR (on the road, on the vehicle, or head-locked)...

Dense suspension flows, both in the natural environment and industrial settings, are complex phenomena with significant implications. From rivers shaping landscapes to industrial processes involving slurry transport, these flows hold a prominent position in numerous sectors. This thesis delves into a specific facet of these intricate flows:...

van der Linden, Jesse (author)
The increasing presence of robots calls for a more seamless and information-rich communication method between humans and robots. This paper explores how natural user interface (NUI) modalities, particularly speech and gesture controls, can be used through augmented reality (AR) to operate robots. The increasing presence of robots calls for...

Haptic shared controllers (HSCs) are a promising solution to prevent human over-reliance on automation during tasks such as car driving. However, research has shown that if the HSC is tuned incorrectly, then there is a risk of haptic conflicts between the human and HSC. To address this challenge, this paper presents the design and implementation...

Nuclear power is increasingly seen as a potential solution to the decarbonization of the energy sector in the coming decades. However, one of the main causes of downtime for current-generation nuclear reactors is the phenomenon of Grid-To-Rod-Fretting (GTRF) inside the reactor core. This is predominantly caused by Fluid-Structure Interaction ...

Weinans, Tom (author)
Autonomy in traffic (e.g., autonomous vehicles) could potentially benefit mobility, safety, accessibility and sustainability. However, the realisation of these advancements is highly dependent on how effective these autonomous vehicles interact with vulnerable road users such as pedestrians. Before we can understand how pedestrians will interact...
