Teleoperation is by nature a deprivation of the senses, which can pose a handicap when operating in an unknown and even dynamic en- vironment. Noticing moving obstacles in such a situation can prove to be quite difficult and the UAV runs the risk of colliding with them. Previous work designed a shared control haptic interface based on the...

This research investigates and proposes a new method for obstacle detection and avoidance on quadrotors. One that does not require the addition of any sensors, but relies solely on measurements from the accelerometer and rotor controllers. The detection of obstacles is based on the principle that the airflow around a quadrotor changes when the...

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...

In the upcoming years, en route airspace capacity will be limited by air traffic controller workload, requiring the introduction of automation to assist controllers with conflict detection and resolution. However, acceptance is considered to be one of the main obstacles in the introduction of novel automation. Individual-sensitive automation has...

Monopiles will be installed in more difficult terrain since space in the 'ideal' locations is reduced by the rapidly increasing development of wind farms in the ideal areas. In difficult terrain, the amount of obstacles or hard layers increase, leading to an increased risk of pile tip damage. Also the ever increasing D/t ratio of the pile leads...

Although wakeboarding is increasing in popularity and number of participants, the market of wakeboard features only fulfils the needs of a part of its potential customers. A gap has been determined in the expertise development of riders. Therefore, the focus of this project is on riders that have enough skills to complete a full round on a cable...

Fouling (algae, slime, and barnacles) on the hull of large cargo vessels is undesirable because it increases their frictional drag, resulting in an increased fuel consumption. As a solution, Fleet Cleaner introduced a ship hull cleaning robot that maneuvers on the hull, using powered wheels and magnets. The robot is controlled by a human...

In this report two Agent-Based Models, the Passenger Model and the Transfer Model, will be constructed and analyzed. The objective is to make a realistic model inspired by a cell-based model to simulate passenger flows on a train platform. We will start by studying the cell-based model and we will explain which aspects have been applied to our...

Currently, Air Traffic Control is responsible for the separation of air traffic in our limited airspace. To facilitate the continuing growth of air traffic, an ambitious plan is to give the responsibility of the separation task to the pilots of the aircraft. The behavior of existing conflict resolution methods within this decentralized approach...

Humans can compensate rapidly to unforeseen errors and circumstances while performing motor tasks. These tasks are exposed to sensory and motor noise and delays originated from the biological system characteristics, as well as to varying surrounding environments while performing movements. Therefore, uncertainty of the estimate of limb position...

A Camera Submodule for the Environment Observation Module for a Zebro robot was designed. It is able to collect and process data about obstacles on a Raspberry Pi and send this to the main processor of the Environment Observation module using UART.
The two main functions that were implemented are a laser rangefinder based on triangulation...

In this report, a model for modeling passenger flows on a platform with obstacles is presented. The report incorporates situations with one exit, benches as obstacles and an additional train and compares those to a basic model in which the platform has two exits and no obstacles. The present study considers the Particle Model as a basis for...

Nous, C.W.M. (author)
No quantitative procedure currently exists to evaluate the obstacle avoidance capabilities of robotic applications. Such an evaluation method is needed for comparing different methods, but also to determine the operational limits of autonomous systems. This work proposes an evaluation framework which can find such limits. The framework comprises...

The dynamics of many physical processes can be described by port-Hamiltonian (PH) models where the importance of the energy function can be seen. In Control by Interconnection (CbI), the controller is another PH system that is connected to the plant through a power preserving interconnection to add up the energy functions. However, a major issue...

This Thesis focussed on what obstacles the refining and (petro)chemical industries are facing in reaching the Energy Efficiency Directive's target. This target means that the industry should become 20% more energy efficient than projected energy efficiency levels. Interviews have been conducted with members of the whole industry chain, e.g. R&D...

In this research the experiments were performed in the water tunnel at the Laboratory for Aero and Hydrodynamics to investigate the 3D flow structure over roughness elements as a model for the flow over urban environment. It represents the first phase in an extended study on the dispersion of pollutants in an urban environment, which process is...
