The complexity of automated systems has grown considerably during the past decades. This convolutes the observation of possible faults in these systems. If not being revealed timely, such faults can lead to catastrophic failures. As a result, there is a continuous interest in sophisticated fault diagnosis techniques. Since it is generally...

Water distribution network (WDN) models are a common decision support tool for understanding the behavior and performance of WDNs, aiding in the planning and management of WDN systems. The increasing availability of real-time data has recently promoted the exploration of Data Assimilation (DA) techniques to improve these models. However, flow...

Lithium-ion batteries are the dominant electrochemical energy storage device and are a key enabler of portable electronics and electric vehicles. However, the technology is often criticized for its use of rare metals. Extending the lifetime of lithium-ion batteries can allow for more time to develop rare metal recycling efforts but this requires...

Having a reliable flight envelope is of paramount importance for safe flight operations. Parameters that determine the safe flight envelope are airspeed , angle of attack, angle of sideslip, Euler angle and load factor. These parameters need to be fault redundant, In order to address this challenge, an unscented Kalman estimation routine is...

This thesis aims to develop a methodology for predicting the swap spread, which is defined as the difference between the German government bond interest rate and the Euribor swap rate. Thus far, the prediction of interest rates is limited to the prediction of a single interest rate. This thesis introduces the simultaneous prediction of the...

Inertial Measurement Units (IMUs) have become increasingly popular human motion estimation due to their portability, self-contained features, and cost-effectiveness compared to marker-based sensing systems which rely on external cameras to observe the position of the markers. Over the years, many studies have proposed various models and...

Pitot tube-free airspeed estimation methods exist for fixed-wing and multirotor configurations, but lack direct applicability to hybrid unmanned air vehicles due to their wide flight envelope and changing dynamics during transition. This work proposes a novel synthetic air data system for the Variable Skew Quad Plane (VSQP) hybrid vehicle to...

Fast and accurate diagnosis of illnesses or other health complications is not accessible in many locations around the world. Due to this, illnesses are unnecessarily left untreated. Therefore, AiDx Medical has developed a portable automated diagnostic microscope with re liable and rapid AI-assisted detection specifically for low-resource...

This thesis investigates the performance of the invariant extended Kalman filter (IEKF) compared to the multiplicative extended Kalman filter (MEKF) in the context of nonlinear state estimation on matrix Lie groups. The IEKF, a relatively recent variant of the EKF, is particularly suitable for systems with group-affine process models and...

Traditionally, the control point (CP) of a dynamically positioned vessel is located around its center of gravity (CoG). However, during offshore operations, other locations, such as the crane tip or gripper position, become more critical due to the load being located there. This thesis proposes shifting the control point from the CoG to an...

Localization is one of the most fundamental competencies required by an autonomous robot, providing crucial information about its position for decision-making in indoor environments. In the current literature, an indoor localization system utilizes exteroceptive sensors such as GNSS(Global Navigation Satellite System), a camera, or an ultrasonic...

Inherent limitations of linear control, including PID, are Bode's phase-gain relationship and the waterbed-effect. Literature showed that reset control can overcome these limitations. The 'Constant in Gain, Lead in Phase' (CgLp) reset element was developed, which can be used in combination with a conventional PID approach. The benefit is that...

Tracker-level fusion (TLF) is recognized as an effective approach to comprehensively improve visual object tracking performance by combining the capabilities of multiple baseline trackers. Although there is considerable interest in TLF, there are still challenges related to insufficient understanding, high cost, and unstable performance that...

Laser communication provides numerous benefits over typical Radio Frequency communication, such as lower power, not occupying regulated frequency bands, possibilities for much higher data rates and resistance to jamming. Combined with satellite constellations, Laser Inter-satellite Links (LISL) can enable global connectivity. However, satellites...

Operational modal analysis (OMA) is an essential tool for understanding the structural dynamics of offshore wind turbines (OWTs). However, the classical OMA algorithms require the excitation of the structure to be stationary white noise, which is often not the case for operational OWTs due to the presence of periodic excitation caused by...

Wind farm controllers such as the Helix approach have shown potential in increasing plant power production through wake mixing. The concept suggests that actuating the upstream turbines' blade pitching with a specific periodic signal can induce a helix-shaped wake, thereby alleviating wind velocity deficit on downstream turbines. Wake mixing...

Affine formation control of multiagent systems has recently received increasing attention in various applications. The distributed control of these agents, under single integrator dynamics, relies on the observations of relative positions of the neighboring agents, which when unavailable is detrimental to the mission. In this paper, we...

Accurately estimating the positions of multi-agent systems in indoor environments is challenging due to the lack of Global Navigation Satelite System (GNSS) signals. Noisy measurements of position and orientation can cause the integrated position estimate to drift without bound. Previous research has proposed using magnetic field simultaneous...
