Substantial efforts are being made to make robots more reliable and safe to work around humans. Robots often perform flawless demos in a controlled environment under the supervision of an operator but tend to fail in the real world when deployed for a long period of time due to faults and environmental disturbances. A robotic system is composed...

Globally, water demand is rising and resources are diminishing. In the context of climate change and a growing world population, a further increase in water scarcity seems inevitable. Aiming towards a sustainable future, water should be used as efficiently as possible by minimizing water losses, which can be higher than 50% in some drinking...

This thesis describes the application of a stochastic active fault diagnosis method for localising leaks in a Water Distribution Network (WDN) under parametric uncertainty, in order to localise leaks faster and more reliable compared to non-invasive state-of-the-art methods. Output residual Probability Distribution Functions (PDFs) for a...

Billions of wireless devices are interconnected to provide services to many<br/>aspects of life and form The Internet of Things. These devices which are<br/>often battery-powered and energy efficient can benefit greatly from an ac-<br/>curate localisation service that does not consume extra energy. Several loc-<br/>alisation methods have been...

A combination of conventional concrete members with innovative material such as Strain Hardening Cementitious Composite (SHCC) in the tensile zone, can exhibit better crack-width control. This is attributed to the bridging effect by the Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA) fibers used in SHCC in combination with the special material composition containing...

The off-side rule is the most complicated rule in soccer. Today, off-sides are determined with the help of referees running on the sides of the field or with the help of cameras. However, for lower league games the installation of a camera based system is very expensive. <br/><br/>This work proposes a sensor based system that can be worn by...

A robot swarm of zebros (Dutch: ZEs Benige RObots) is being developed at the TU Delft, with the purpose of forming a large self-deploying sensor network that survey remote locations without the need for any pre-existing infrastructure, or be used for evaluating swarming algorithms in the field. Towards this goal, zebros need to be able to...

The IoT contains billions of interconnected devices and is only growing larger by the day. These devices often need to operate for years while keeping mobile objects, such as animals or vehicles, connected to a larger system. Therefore they will be battery-powered, energy efficient and, their position will be tracked. Therefore, connecting these...

The AMA region wants to make the transition towards a circular economy. To make the circular economy happen, social, environmental and economic challenges have to be integrated in the transition. This report will identify these challenges and propose a vision, a development strategy and projects/policies to propose a new system in the sector...

The current trend towards the use of smart tools within universities open up new opportunities. Insight in the location and daily rhythms of users within the building form valuable input for many decision-making processes within campus management. Unlike the outdoor environment, where the position is easily obtained through omnipresent satellite...

Nowadays, 19% of the global energy consumption is used for lighting. For this reason, saving energy in lighting is vital. A simple way to save energy is to “simply” turn the lights off, or reduce the amount of light used when nobody is around. This thesis proposes a new method for luminaires to detect the presence of humans and objects which...

Humans interact more and more with their environment through technology, recent decades have seen a huge increase in the need for and availability of Location-Based Services (LBS). Recently landmarks have gotten a renewed interest in the field of LBS , although already a quite old phenomenon. In both the outdoor and indoor environment they are...

For both security and analytics, much research has gone into person tracking already. As a result, many<br/>different state of the art technologies exist. However, in darkness or without a direct line of sight, much<br/>less technologies are capable of this. The choices become especially limited when the setup needs to<br/>be portable.<br/>A...

In this thesis five different Direction Of Arrival algorithms will be developed for use with Microflown's Acoustic Vector Sensors, which will determine the direction an acoustic signal originates from. These algorithms will run on a main-station that will remotely receive data from an array of AVSs. The performance of these algorithms is...

This document describes the Bachelor Graduation Project of the Communication and System integration group of the Zebro Localisation and Communication Module. The module has been designed for a Zebro which is a six legged robot with the purpose of working in swarm-related behaviour. To make this behaviour possible a new Localisation module for...

The Wi-Fi technologies are used in everyday life on numerous applications that detect the crowd information for commercial, security and other reasons. The Wi-Fi monitoring can be used for tracking people when they are moving along different access points. The results from the Wi-Fi monitoring can provide the location of the users in an area and...

Indoor positioning is becoming a hot topic in public areas that are used by large numbers of people. Finding people and assets in buildings has become more difficult because of the complexity and scale of today’s public space. On the subject of locating assets in the hospital the following use case is defined for this project. Positioning and...

We have investigated the possibility of using prior knowledge about a sample in order to improve the image quality of localisation microscopy. We assumed that all fluorescent molecules were aligned on one, or two parallel line segments and used this assumption to develop an estimator for the emitter locations and the line parameters. Using...

This thesis describes the design of a sound localization algorithm in audio-based games for visually impaired children. An algorithm was developed to allow real-time audio playback and manipulation, using overlapping audio blocks multiplied by a window function. The audio signal was played through headphones. Multiple sound localization cues are...

Freight is moved by trucks on the road more and more, which is a worrying thing, especially for the environment. A very good alternative to transportation by trucks is transportation by trains. The Dutch government aims to increase the transportation of goods by train from 13% of all transportation to 20% of all transportation, but in reality,...
