A switching max-plus linear model is a framework to describe the discrete dynamics of the timing of events. To influence these systems one can choose the routes of jobs and the orderings of operations as input for the system. In this thesis the techniques of model predictive control are used to find good input values. The problem of finding the...

A necessity in driving simulation testing is to understand and attenuate simulator sickness in urban environments to reduce the number of undesired drop-outs. This final thesis explains a 6 degree-of-freedom simulator sickness prediction model based on observer theory including the visual system. The model incorporates state-of-the-art knowledge...

As the number of wireless applications increases every year, overcrowding the RF/microwave spectrum, research community and industry are gradually starting to dedicate more attention to the less exploited (sub)millimeter wave spectrum, spanning from 30 GHz to 1 THz. While the high frequency and large available bandwidth of the latter promises...

The modern era is witnessing a crucial revolution regarding the driving concept, towards a more assisted and automated way of driving. Despite the advantages such conception have been extensively predicted and supported in literature, a direct transition from manual to fully automated operation is at the current moment not feasible, both for...

Detached Eddy Simulation is investigated as a potential method to improve the design process in the Aerodynamic Prototype Development Department of Porsche Motorsport. Detached Eddy Simulation is a CFD method that combines the scale resolving capabilities of Large Eddy Simulation with the low cost modelling of the Reynolds-Averaged Navier-Stokes...

Background: For both hospitals and patients it would be beneficial if the scan time of MR images could be reduced. At the moment, Compressed Sensing (CS) is introduced to reduce the scan time, however, new methods are developed such as a deep learning method, called the Recurrent Inference Machine (RIM). In this study the effect of...

The Sit-to-Stand (SiSt) task is one of the most crucial yet mechanically demanding daily tasks. A transfemoral amputee develops high torques on the intact leg to complete the SiSt task. Such high torques are a consequence of limited torques produced by a prosthesis. The main interest of this project is on the sit-to-stand task of a transfemoral...

During the last years, electric power generation was based mainly on large centralized fossil fuelled power plants. However, nowadays and in the future, efforts are made to increase the share from renewable sources, as a result of increasing environmental concern. Indeed, in some networks areas, wind generators gradually start to replace...

Stroke is a cerebrovascular disorder with 15 million cases every year worldwide. The most common symptom is motor deficits. In order to overcome such symptoms, the motor brain either repairs the damaged tissue or reorganises to compensate for the injured brain region. To stimulate this reorganisation transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS...

The fatigue strength of the pin connection is assessed in the research project presented in this thesis. The fatigue strength is quantied by an estimated fatigue lifetime, which is the expected time to failure of the most critical point in the connection. The lifetime is estimated based on the yearly accumulated fatigue damage. A computer model...

Convolution Neural Networks (CNN) are used in many applications ranging from real-time object detection to robot-motion planning. CNNs are implemented on high-performance systems like multi-core CPU and GPU, these are of high power in nature and thus cannot be deployed in edge devices due to their limited battery power. The edge device has to...

Reinforcement learning (RL) is a model-free adaptive approach to learn a non-linear control law for flight control. However, for flat-RL (FRL) the size of the search space grows exponentially with the number of states, resulting in low sample efficiency. This research aims to improve the efficiency with Hierarchical Reinforcement Learning (HRL)....

The refurbishment of the Dutch post- war residential building stock provides a great potential for energy and CO2 emissions savings, since a large number of buildings were built before 1975 and under low or no energy standards. However, their refurbishment and especially zero-on-the-meter, is too expensive and it is not possible to find the...

Spreading phenomena such as spreading of diseases, information and computer viruses are ubiquitous in nature and man-made systems, but the understanding of them is still insufficient. This dissertation focuses on the analysis of a basic mathematical model of spreading phenomena running on underlying network structures and aims to complete the...

Liquid fuels are projected to account for 88% of total energy use in the transportation sector in 2040. Low cost of renewable energy poses a new opportunity for decarbonisation of the transport sector. As a liquid en- ergy carrier, methanol offers a promising solution for alternative fuels in aviation, shipping and long-distance trucking. Zero...

A hardware in the loop (HIL) simulation is a cost and time effective method to develop a simulation environment of an electric vehicle's powertrain. Control algorithms can be programmed into a digital signal processor and tested with real-time simulations of electrical machines and power electronic converters, eliminating the need for developing...
