Considering that the IoT is giving rise to new sensing infrastructures with stringent requirements, we are posed with new trade-offs. On one hand, there is a need to develop systems that have a low cost, complexity, and ecological footprint, while being privacy-aware. On the other hand, despite these constraints, there is a need to still...

In recent years, researchers have proposed a variety of approaches to tackle the problem of orbital debris. Debris targets are diverse, and prior knowledge may be limited, with unknown uncooperative debris targets being the most challenging category. A crucial portion of any debris capture scenario is the observation phase during the approach....

During a solar eclipse, sunlight incident on the Earth is reduced due to the (partial) shadow of the Moon. Atmospheric trace gas concentrations which are influenced by the amount of available sunlight, such as nitrogen dioxide (NO<sub>2</sub>), may be affected due to the disrupted photolysis processes. Large-scale observations of the increased...

Distributed Acoustic Sensing (DAS) is a versatile dynamic strain sensing method that has been adopted for a wide range of seismic applications. In DAS, optical fibres are interrogated and used as sensors, where a strain or strain-rate measurement is made along a specific length of the fibre, called the gauge length. Its main appeal is the...

Sand waves can have a significant impact on offshore activities, and with the global push for sustainability and more renewable energy sources, these negative impacts will become more prevalent. Sand waves in the North Sea have a height up to a couple of meters and a wavelength between 100 and 1000 meters. The migration or change in asymmetry of...

The control possibilities for soft robots have long been hindered by the need for reliable methods to estimate their configuration. Inertial measurement units (IMUs) can solve this challenge, but they are affected by well-known drift issues. This letter proposes a method to eliminate this limitation by leveraging the Piecewise Constant...

Recent policy initiatives in Europe emphasize a movement towards nature-based solutions in flood management; however, a quantitative relationship between specific flood management measures and indicators of ecological health and biodiversity is difficult to establish (Penning et al., 2023). In the Netherlands, several studies have been conducted...

Geothermal power production may result in significant CO2 emissions as part of the produced steam. CO2 capture, utilisation, subsurface storage (CCUS) and developments to exploit geothermal resources are focal points for future clean and renewable energy strategies. The Synergetic Utilisation of CO2 Storage Coupled with Geothermal Energy...

We consider the problem of recovering complex-valued block sparse signals with unknown borders. Such signals arise naturally in numerous applications. Several algorithms have been developed to solve the problem of unknown block partitions. In pattern-coupled sparse Bayesian learning (PCSBL), each coefficient involves its own hyperparameter...

Physical distancing has been an important asset in limiting the SARS-CoV-2 virus spread during the COVID-19 pandemic. This study aims to assess compliance with physical distancing and to evaluate the combination of observed and self-reported data used. This research shows that it is difficult to operationalize new rules, that context affects...

Real-time nonintrusive occupancy estimation can maximize the use of existing sensors to infer occupant information in buildings with the advantages of fewer privacy concerns and fewer extra device costs. Recently, many deep learning architectures have proven effective in estimating occupancy directly from raw sensor data. However, some...

Here, we study the structural and optical properties of tetragonal β-tantalum-sputtered thin films both ex situ and when exposed to hydrogen, with a focus on optical hydrogen sensing applications. Using optical transmission measurements, out-of-plane and in-plane X-ray diffraction, and X-ray and neutron reflectometry, we show that thin film β...

Assessing real-world emissions from buses and taxis is vital to comprehend their impact on urban air quality. Such vehicles differ significantly from the majority of the fleet owing to their higher mileage rates. However, few studies have focused on specifically assessing the emissions from this segment of the vehicle fleet. In this context,...

The growing trend of the Internet of Things (IoT) involves trillions of sensors in various applications. An extensive array of parameters need to be gathered concurrently with high-precision, low-cost, and low-power sensor nodes, such as resistive (R) and capacitive (C) sensors. Single-chip channel fusion can be an effective solution, while...

Mountains are important suppliers of freshwater to downstream areas, affecting large populations in particular in High Mountain Asia (HMA). Yet, the propagation of water from HMA headwaters to downstream areas is not fully understood, as interactions in the mountain water cycle between the cryo-, hydro- and biosphere remain elusive. We review...
