The Attention-Related Driving Errors Scale (ARDES) is a self-report measure of individual differences in driving inattention. ARDES was originally developed in Spanish (Argentina), and later adapted to other countries and languages. Evidence supporting the reliability and validity of ARDES scores has been obtained in various different...

Situational awareness within port areas is crucial to avoid collisions, navigate efficiently and reduce congestion. Maritime-traffic controllers constantly monitor the situation in the port and intervene when needed. This study proposes a deep learning model that predicts future vessel positions to assist in this process. The model employs a...

Optimization of traffic signal control has been widely investigated by means of model-based strategies. In 2012 a new model-based controller was published, named Schedule-driven Intersection Control (SCHIC). This controller uses a job-scheduling algorithm to minimize the cumulative delay for all observed vehicles. The algorithms of SCHIC are at...

In aircraft design, proper tailoring of composite anisotropic characteristics allows to achieve weight saving while maintaining good aeroelastic performance. To further improve the design, dynamic loads and manufacturing constraints should be integrated in the design process. The objective of this paper is to evaluate how the introduction of...

Driving with driver assistance systems utilising haptic shared control (HSC) can lead to annoyance, or even disuse, when the intent of both entities differs. In order to increase compliance and acceptance of these systems, this study explores two types of visual information projected onto the outside scenery. One visualisation portrays only the...

This paper presents an attempts towards creation of generalized models of ships manoeuvring area determination and ship performance created on the base of real simulation results. Those models are needed for better understanding of the safe navigation process in ports areas and its approaches and for risk analysis when no full information...

The coupling between heel and the loads in the horizontal plane is usually neglected in manoeuvrability studies. However, the heel–sway and heel–yaw coupling can play an important role in potentially unsafe conditions, such as in a following sea. In these conditions, small fast vessels experience dynamic instabilities which threaten their...

Broaching-to is a highly complex, non-linear dynamic instability event that several vessels might face when sailing in the same direction of the waves, for example when returning to port during a storm. This condition is referred to as following sea. Vessels such high-speed craft but also patrol and rescue boats, fishing trawlers or small...

Over the past years tugs are evolving to more compact designs equipped with large power installations. This inherently increases the risk of accidents, demanding a more reliable prediction of the tug’s dynamical behaviour in critical situations. To capture the dynamic behaviour of a tug, a time domain simulation tool has been developed and used...

By design, current FCW systems in use by the automotive industry will present warnings as late as possible while still providing enough time to brake. The primary function of the FCW system is to alert an inattentive driver to a collision possible situation and prompt a mitigating action. Adaptive FCW systems have been shown to reduce...

To obtain unambiguous ground truth of water-ice residing in permanently shaded regions of the Moon and to characterise the local regolith, ESA considers a mission involving an instrumented penetrator implanted there by high-speed impact. Released into lunar orbit, the European Lunar Penetrator (ELUPE) Descent Module will autonomously traverse a...

Lane change manoeuvres are known to vary widely in lane change duration. This is thought to be an effect of the surrounding vehicles and personal preference of drivers. However, little is known about the effect on steering behaviour during a lane change manoeuvre. Moreover, the relation of the effect of traffic to inter- and intra-driver...

In recent years, research in the field of autonomous driving has been subject to a significant increase in interest. Along with the advances in automation and electrification, cars are slowly transitioning to computers on wheels. The ever-increasing processing power in vehicles gives rise to the implementation of advanced control strategies. The...

The competitiveness of the maritime sector together with energetic and environmental challenges have promoted a demand for more efficient marine vehicles. In response to this, research campaigns have been conducted, with the aim of developing new technologies. One of these technologies is the application of hydrofoils (e.g.: a Hull Vane) to...

The technological advancements in the automotive industry have enabled the automation of numerous routine driving tasks. As a result, the art of driving has become a control task with a strong supervisory character, including the common human factor issues. Haptic Shared Control has been shown to be useful in keeping the driver in-the-loop by...

For the real-time simulation of ship manoeuvring, it is required to estimate the hydrodynamic forces with high accuracy. Current methods to determine the hydrodynamic coefficients prove to be time consuming and labour intensive. In this thesis, a method based on Singular Value Decomposition is proposed to determine the hydrodynamic coefficients...

In the Netherlands a large variety exists in the used widths of inland port entrances. In addition, multiple entrance layouts are applied. Currently, guidelines are missing for the design of inland port entrances along flowing waters with flow velocities larger than 0.5 m/s. A more generic insight into the minimum required nautical safe entrance...

Ship manoeuvrability is fundamental for the navigation safety of ships. Furthermore, through the equipment used for manoeuvring, it also affects investment, operation, and maintenance cost of these ships. Ships are primarily designed from an economic point of view. To ensure and improve the maritime efficiency, research on inland vessel...
