Technology is transforming almost all aspects of our lives, one of them is automation. The main motivation of automation is to help humans avoid performing tedious, high risk jobs. Automated driving, also known as autonomous driving, has been at the center of industrial and academic attention since a few decades now, thanks to its potential of...

Problem: Due to high rejection rates regarding prostheses’ use, the assessment of the amputee’s use of the prosthesis has become more critical. Today’s prosthesis research is limited to assessing a users’ performance to perform tasks in a controlled environment. Therefore, these studies cannot wholly assess how the prosthesis is used in the...

The thesis aims to develop a Fault Tolerant Control (FTC) architecture, for the case of a damaged actuator for a multirotor that can be applied across multirotor platforms based on their Attainable Virtual Control Set (AVCS). The research is aimed to study the AVCS and identify the parameters that limit the controllability of multirotor UAV post...

Fleet Cleaner B.V. is a Dutch company which deploys a wheeled hull-fixed Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) to clean biofouling off the Vertical Sides (VSs) and the Flat Bottom (FB) of the hull of seagoing cargo vessels, while berthed at the harbour. To ensure maximal cleaning coverage, accurate localization to keep track of the robot trajectory on...

The ability to capture joint kinematics in outside-laboratory environments is clinically relevant. In order to estimate kinematics, inertial measurement units can be attached to body segments and their absolute orientations can be estimated. However, the heading part of such orientation estimates is known to drift over time, resulting in...

This letter presents a novel radar based, single-frame, multi-class detection method for moving road users ( pedestrian, cyclist, car ), which utilizes low-level radar cube data. The method provides class information both on the radar target- and object-level. Radar targets are classified individually after extending the target features with a...

Three bias estimation frameworks are presented that mitigate position-dependent ranging errors often present in ultra-wideband localization systems. State estimation and control are integrated, such that the positioning accuracy improves over iterations. The frameworks are experimentally evaluated on a quadcopter platform. Two state augmentation...

Autonomous robots heavily rely on well-tuned state estimation filters for successful control. This letter presents a novel automatic tuning strategy for learning filter parameters by minimizing the innovation, i.e., the discrepancy between expected and received signals from all sensors. The optimization process only requires the inputs and...

Recent advances in sensor technology have lead to increased resolution of novel sensors, while tracking applications where distance between sensors and objects of interest is very small have gained research interest recently. In these cases, it is possible that multiple sensor detections are generated by each object of interest. Extended Object...

Advances in sensing and machine learning technologies give rise to personal health coaches that monitor human activities and support healthy behaviour. In this context, wheelchair users can benefit from such technologies as they often suffer from physical ailments due to insufficient or over activity, prolonged improper posture and lack of...

Pose estimation through fusion of GNSS with secondary sensors has long been an established field. With the developments surrounding autonomous navigation over the past decade this topic has gained extra importance. In the current literature GNSS based pose and localisation is often improved through fusion with either a IMU}or VS with the goal of...

Actuators using soft materials feature a large number of degrees of freedom. This tremendous flexibility allows a soft actuator to passively adapt its shape to the objects under interaction. In this paper, we propose a novel proprioception method for soft actuators during real-time interaction with previously unknown objects. First, we design...

The detection of unusual behavior plays a crucial role in the prevention of illegal and harmful activities such as smuggling, piracy, arms trading, human trafficking and illegal immigration. Also for military applications, it is useful to detect anomalous behavior to provide an alert for potential threats, especially with the more recent...

Object detection is one of the most important research topics in autonomous vehicles. The detection systems of autonomous vehicles nowadays are mostly image-based ones which detect target objects in the images. Although image-based detectors can provide a rather accurate 2D position of the object in the image, it is necessary to get the accurate...

Objective. Dexterous control of myoelectric upper limb prosthesis is still limited by the capabilities of the modern human-machine interfaces. The first goal of the current work was to develop a system that supplements the academic myoelectric state-of-the-art interface during the interaction with objects (e.g., grasping, manipulation) with the...

Accessibility of offshore structures is strongly affected by local weather and wave conditions. During rough wave climates, vessel motions prevent people to be transferred safely from and to an offshore structure. To increase accessibility, Ampelmann developed a motion compensating gangway system. The system uses a 6 DoF motion sensor to measure...

Current trailers and caravans use overrun brakes, which cause overheated brakes in the mountains. A solution is to design an electric brake system in which the brakes are controlled electronically instead of mechanically. The report discusses the control models associated with braking, anti-sway detection and velocity sensor fusion. The RDW...

Injuries are a sportsman’s worst nightmare: They withhold players from playing, they weaken teams and they force clubs to buy a bench-full of substitutes. On top of that, injuries can cause an awful lot of pain. Regulating match and training intensity can drastically decrease the risk of getting injured. Furthermore, it can optimally prepare...
