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....

Falling remains a large source of (traumatic) injuries and healthcare costs. Over the past years, different actuators have been developed in the field of wearable robotics to help prevent injuries from falling. To increase the wearability of these systems, the weight of power storage can be decreased with intermittent instead of continuous...

In this thesis, a low-power, high-accuracy BJT-based temperature sensor is proposed, which consists of two main parts: a BJT-based dual-mode front-end (DMFE) and a tracking Delta-Sigma-Modulator (DSM). The front-end employs vertical PNP transistors, which, compared to NPNs, exhibit fewer non-idealities when biased at nA-level currents. The...

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...

Within rehabilitation, there is a great need for a simple method to monitor wheelchair use, especially whether it is active or passive. For this purpose, an existing measurement technique was extended with a method for detecting self- or attendant-pushed wheelchair propulsion. The aim of this study was to validate this new detection method by...

This paper introduces a directional coupler for partial discharge (PD) measurements in gas-insulated substations (GIS). The sensor comprises a combination of magnetic and electric couplers, effectively segregating forward and backward pulses to enhance PD charge estimation and defect location. The sensor's design was supported with finite...

Sensor data and agro-hydrological modeling have been combined to improve irrigation management. Crop water models simulating crop growth and production in response to the soil-water environment need to be parsimonious in terms of structure, inputs and parameters to be applied in data scarce regions. Irrigation management using soil moisture...

The correct identification of partial discharges (PDs) is instrumental for the maintenance plan in gas-insulated systems (GIS). However, onsite PD measurements are difficult, especially in HVDC systems, where partial discharges can be confused with interference. This paper proposes a method to discern PDs from interferences based on the GIS...

The industrially collected process data usually exhibit non-Gaussian and multi-mode characteristics. Due to sensor failures, irregular disturbances, and transmission problems, there are unavoidable outliers that make the data exhibit heavy-tailed characteristics. To this end, a variational auto-encoder regression method based on the mixture...
