Organic coatings are one of the most used and versatile technologies to mitigate corrosion of metals. However, organic coatings are susceptible to defects and damages that may not be easily detected. If not repaired timely, these defects may develop into major coating failures due to corrosion occurring in the damaged region, thereby limiting...

Information on crop yield is important for food security, in particular under the conditions of climate change and growing population worldwide. We developed a new fully distributed, high spatial resolution, model of biomass accumulation and crop yield applicable to a highly heterogeneous desert-oasis agroecosystem. The bulk of required input...

Aerodynamic load determination through integration of the surface pressure distribution is limited in accuracy by the discrete number of measurements taken. Therefore, typically relatively large numbers of spatially distributed measurements are required which increase setup complexity, latency, cost and weight while requiring physical access in...

Manipulating soft and fragile objects is a challenging task in robotic grasping. The key challenge for robotic grasping is to exert enough grip force to prevent slipping while being gentle enough to prevent damage to an object. Existing grippers used for processes like automatic harvesting of fruits, either apply excessive grip force leading to...

Optical sensor has been widely used in daily life. One of the important applications of optical sensors is the ambient light sensor installed in portable devices. The screen brightness of portable devices like smartphones is designed to be automatically adjusted based on the ambient environment. The ambient light detection is realized using...

Providing farmers with the tools to monitor their crops continuously and reliably can aid the scaling of global food production to meet the ever-growing demand. The optical Normalised Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI) is commonly used to monitor crop greenness as an indicator for biomass, but it is limited by clouds and signal saturation....

Biosensing properties like mass, density and stiffness on a single cell level can help diagnose diseases. Mass sensing of cells and subcellular components is typically performed with resonant microstructures. Recently such microstructures were fabricated using an emerging 3D printing technique called two-photon polymerization (2PP) contrary to...

Electroactive polymers (EAPs) are smart materials that have electromechanical and mechanoelectrical transduction properties. They are flexible, lightweight, easy to shape and cheap to produce. These properties allow EAPs to be used as actuators or sensors in applications such as soft robotics, metamaterial structures, or other future...

Knowledge of nearshore bathymetry is crucial for every aspect of the blue economy. Currently, it is expensive to obtain nearshore bathymetry at regional scales, and therefore this data is not available for many coasts. The data scarcity occurs especially in the global south and big ocean states that are at the highest risk from climate change....

This article uses Sentinel-1 satellite images to identify rice fields in Rwanda from 2017 to 2021 in an attempt to derive the current status of rice in Muvumba catchment, in the northern part of Rwanda. The timing of rice cultivation in each season in that area was identified as not homogeneous, but generally aligned with the local rainy season....

The aim of this study is to innovate wave-based depth-inversion towards smarter and faster algorithms to be used with various remote sensing instruments for broad community use. Wave-based depth inversion describes a branch of coastal remote sensing, which uses video recordings of a wave-field to derive depths and thereby create digital maps of...

One-third of the Dutch dike system consists of peat dikes. Drought causes these dikes to crack and fail more easily. Visual dike inspections are therefore inefficient, especially considering the increasing climate changes of the future. Research has shown that a fiber optic sensor cable (FOS), used in distributed temperature sensing (DTS), can...

Flapping wing micro aerial vehicles (FWMAVs) are known for their flight agility and maneuverability. However, their in-gust flight performance and stability is still inferior to their biological counterparts. To this end, a simplified in-gust dynamic model, which could capture the main gust effects on FWMAVs, has been identified with real in...

With the increasing desire of the aerospace industry to reduce emissions and fuel consumption, morphing wings have gained much interest due to the ability to adapt the wing shape in-flight for improved energy efficiency and aerodynamic performance. Active wing morphing is a technology that can improve aerodynamic performance continuously through...

Disintegration of Antarctic ice shelves can induce devastated consequences for the environment and human infrastructure in the form of an increase of the global mean sea level. One of the causes of an ice shelf break down is hydrofracturing due to the mass load of supraglacial lakes. The top of the snowpack melts and the meltwater flows to a...

Interference of light can be used to determine the concentration of a gas, called gas sensing. The absorption of the light by the gas molecules is measured based on the phase change of the light. In this report, a hollow core photonic crystal fiber is treated. The gas sample is inserted into the hollow core. Photonic crystal fibers possess the...

Humans have a long history of intervening in natural river systems. These human interventions affect how water and sediment interact with the bed and banks of the river. The interaction between water and sediment is called morphodynamics and is an important component of the natural ecosystem of the river and its surroundings. This research aims...

Direction of Arrival (DoA) estimation is an important topic in radar application and has significant importance for advanced driver assistant systems in the automotive industry. While there is an increasing need for higher resolution and increased target detection and DoA estimation performance, such improvements often require increased hardware...

Light detection and ranging (LIDAR) is rapidly emerging as a key technology for depth sensing applications. LIDAR acts as an auxiliary ranging technique, such as radar, thermal image ranging, image recognition, and time-of-flight (TOF) sensor. As a special type of direct time-of-flight (D-TOF) system, this work presents the system design and the...

The reconstruction of the elastic deformed shape of a structure from strain measurements is a field which has received considerable attention over the years. This work aims to suggest some improvements for wing-like structures trying to limit as much as possible the amount of strain measurements needed. In particular, a simple beam model is...
