Interactions are essential to life. At the cellular level, the most fundamental processes rely on interactions between DNA, RNA, and proteins. Given that the structure and function of these molecules are determined by their sequence, it is ultimately the sequence that dictates the strength and specificity of these interactions. Thus, to improve...

Transition zones in railway tracks, which occur at changes in track form and or substructure properties, are known to cause issues with track degradation. Examples can be found where a track section, usually a ballast track, transits to a slab track to cross a roadway or waterway through supporting structures such as bridges, level crossings,...

The dissertation explores the use of emergency measures, particularly the BresDefender, to prevent or delay levee failure and mitigate the impacts of floods, focusing on the Netherlands' flood protection systems. Levees are vital for protecting low-lying areas, but there's always a risk of failure, leading to significant societal and material...

Recent advancements in artificial intelligence (AI), particularly in deep learning, have significantly enhanced AI capabilities but have also led to more complex and less interpretable algorithms. This research addresses the challenge of Explainable AI (XAI) by focusing on enhancing the interpretability of AI decisions through the use of...

Using plant-hybrid technologies presents an unusual design opportunity, by combining living plants with technology. This master’s thesis delves into the integration of plant-hybrid robotics, exploring human-plant interaction systems. The study explores the potential design implications of this field, particularly in public settings where...

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...

Diab Montero, H.A. (author)
In this dissertation, I explore ensemble data assimilation methods to enhance our capability to forecast earthquakes and slow slip events, focusing on the critical challenge posed by limited information on the current stress state of faults. <br/>At the outset, the research acknowledges the inherent limitations in our current understanding of...

The city is by definition full of strangers. To any person in the city, strangers are far more common than acquaintances. Even residents that live close to each other are strangers. Though good city sidewalk life can enhance safety and neighbor interaction on the streets. It may appear purposeless, but sidewalk contacts can change the city’s...

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)...
