This paper presents a train robust control method to optimize train operation based on the concept virtual coupling on train platoon. This approach is inspired by the recent development of platoon control for autonomous vehicles, and it is hoped that this platoon control can be applied to railway transportation. We use a decentralized model...

Currently, with the development of driving technologies, driverless vehicles gradually are becoming more and more available. Therefore, there would be a long period of time during which self-driving vehicles and human-driven vehicles coexist. However, for a mixed platoon, it is hard to control the formation due to the existence of the manual...

Increasing housing demand in Europe and the need to be more sustainable are asking the construction industry to leave the traditional pathways and innovate. An emerging construction method with volumetric timber modules potentially offers the solution. However little is known about the robustness of this new innovation. Therefore, this thesis...

Future energy systems are expected to rely increasingly more on distributed energy resources (DER). Prosumers that own energy resources such as photovoltaic (PV) generation and energy storage systems, will play a crucial role in the realization of DER’s in future power systems. Limited grid connections due to local electricity congestion make it...

Computer architectures with weak memory models, such as ARMv8 and ARMv7, allow memory accesses to be reordered in many situations.<br/>Therefore, weak memory models may cause a program to exhibit more behavior than a strong memory model, such as x86.<br/>Fency is a static analysis tool that inserts memory fences to ensure that a program exhibits...

In this thesis a novel model is proposed to solve the Robust Tail Assignment problem. The Robust Tail Assignment problem aims to assign aircraft to flights, while minimize expected costs of operating a flight schedule, including expected delay costs. This problem is difficult, because delays can propagate between successive flights in the...

Traditionally, convolutional neural networks are feedforward networks with a deep and complex hierarchy. Conversely, the human brain has a relatively shallow hierarchy with recurrent connections. Replicating this recurrence may allow for shallower and easier to understand computer vision models that may possess characteristics usually attributed...

Machine learning models are increasingly being used within software engineering for their predictions. Research shows that these models’ performance is increasing with new research. This thesis focuses on models for method name prediction, for which the goal is to have a model that can accurately predict method names. With this thesis, we could...

Water storage and diversion capacity of reservoirs in the Nile Basin are benefited for various purposes including agricultural irrigation and hydro-energy production. Filling and operation of the recently constructed Grand Ethiopian Renaissance Dam (GERD) have been subject to heated debate for its implications on downstream countries Sudan and...

Recent research on the Flying V - a flying-wing long-range passenger aircraft - shows that its airframe design is 25% more aerodynamically efficient than a conventional tube-and-wing airframe. The Flying V is therefore a promising contribution towards reduction in climate impact of long-haul flights. However, some design aspects of the Flying V...

Regression is difficult because of noise, imbalanced data sampling, missing data, etc. We propose a method by classifying the continuous regression labels to tackle regression robustness problems. We analyze if our method can help regression, given that the class information is already included in the regression labels. We start by extensively...

Adversarial training and its variants have become the standard defense against adversarial attacks - perturbed inputs designed to fool the model. Boosting techniques such as Adaboost have been successful for binary classification problems, however, there is limited research in the application of them for providing adversarial robustness. In this...

Scheduling is required in almost every industry and when done well it can bring a lot of revenue. Flexibility is often forgotten when creating the initial schedules. Therefore, in case of an unexpected delay, the whole schedule has to suffer. In this paper, we consider a re-entrant flow shop with sequence-dependent setup times and relative due...

The application of machine learning in daily life requires interpretability and robustness. In this paper we try to make the process of building robust and interpretable decision trees more accessible. We do this by making the fitting of these models cheaper and simpler. We build on previous research and see if changing input data or the fitting...

Manycoastal cities are struggling with a rapidly growing risk of flooding. The sizeand complexity of these cities often demand a coordinated strategy, consistingof a combination of flood risk reduction measures. A crucial part in the designprocess is the identification of effective flood risk management strategies. However,data and resources are...

Humans and other biological bipedal walkers are extraordinarily agile and robust. This is especially apparent when certain features of the environment are unknown such as unexpected downsteps (for example, suddenly walking off the side-walk or not expecting the last stair when descending). Humans can negotiate these downsteps ---both expected...

Model-Based Reinforcement Learning (MBRL) algorithms solve sequential decision-making problems, usually formalised as Markov Decision Processes, using a model of the environment dynamics to compute the optimal policy. When dealing with complex environments, the environment dynamics are frequently approximated with function approximators (such as...

Network robustness describes a network's ability to provide and maintain an acceptable level of service in the face of failures and challenges to normal operation. Unfortunately, failures of networks, such as power outages in power systems, congestions in transportation networks, failures of routers on the Internet, happen frequently in our...

Aiming at a more efficient and accurate performance of parallel manipulators in the existence of complex kinematics and dynamics, a robust generalizable methodology is proposed here for an integrated 6-DOF Stewart platform with rotary time-delayed actuators torque control. The suggested method employs a time-delay linear–quadratic integral...

This chapter discusses the threefold challenge of designing effective interventions in engineering systems that are constantly changing: (1) a designed socio-technical artefact should improve system performance not only under present conditions, but it must also be functional when conditions change, be it autonomously or due to interventions...
