Explainable AI is the field concerned with trying to make AI understandable to humans. While efforts have resulted in significant improvement in research and practical methods of Explainable AI, there is an urgent need for additional research and empirical studies. The academic research gaps identified in this thesis show that Explainable AI is...

In recent years, shared services centers (SSCs) have been central to organizational transformation strategies of many large firms and governments to reduce costs, improve service quality, and innovate services. SSCs are undergoing significant transformations due to the advancement of technologies. To better understand the technologies’ impact on...

Enterprise architecture (EA) initiatives consist of functions, processes, tools, instruments, and principles to guide the design of IT and its alignment with business. EA is often presented as a silver bullet to ensure that IT contributes to business. Yet, many EA initiatives do not work out or even fail, but in the literature this area is...

Modelling natural phenomena via Dynamical System Theory has become commonplace amongst mathematicians, physicists, engineers, and the like. As such, research in this field is currently underway, with a notable focus on chaos. The Competitive Modes Conjecture is a relatively new approach in the field of chaotic Dynamical Systems, aiming to...

Hoekstra, Maxime (author)
In this thesis max-plus algebra is introduced and applied to the problem of controlling train delays. Two control strategies for the propagation of delays are discussed. The first is by letting certain trains run faster when a delay is detected, the second is by breaking connections between trains that have to wait for each other in order to...

In this research project, the design of a smallsat mission to a Halo orbit around the Earth-Moon second libration point (EML-2) using a rideshare launch opportunity to an inclined geosynchronous transfer orbit (GTO) was investigated. <br/>The design leverages classical results from Dynamical Systems Theory (DST) to determine low-energy transfers...

This report outlines the design process, research activities and results of a graduation thesis on power and privilege in multi-stakeholder public and social sector design processes. Due to a perceived gap in the design field, both in education and practice, the aim of this project is to support designers in becoming more aware of power dynamics...

There is a pressing need for road authorities to take a proactive role in the deployment of automated vehicles on the existing road network. This requires a comprehensive understanding of the road infrastructure requirements that would lead to safe operation of automated vehicles. In this context, a field test with Lane Departure Warning and...

This thesis develops a method to forecast the cash flows that determine the value of an enterprise. From a control engineers perspective, three stages arise to develop such a method: the research, the system and the control part. The research part presents the results of a control theoretic analysis of PricewaterhouseCoopers’ (PwC) valuation...

This thesis provides a theoretical framework for the arise of stop-and-go waves in platoons of Human-driven Vehicles (HVs) on a ring road topology. Possibilities and limitations for traffic control and suppression of such waves via a single Autonomous Vehicle (AV) are considered. Being HVs prone to show string instability, i.e. a type of...

This projects aims to understand architectural entities present in Blaak Market, Rotterdam systematically and map their relation to a geometric game. Doing so would enable the inhabitants to voice their concern by play ing an intuitive game. Beside the new approach to participatory design, the methodology adopted in this project has made the...

In this paper we consider (large and complex) interconnected networks. We assume that each state/node, not belonging to a set of forbidden nodes of the network, can be selected to act as a steering node, meaning that such a node then is influenced by its own individual control. We aim to achieve structural controllability and we present a...

This study offers a new perspective on clothing consumption by uncovering the systemic nature of the wardrobe. The research builds on systems theory and aims at drawing a map of the wardrobe as a system with particular structure and behaviour. By co-designing fictional 'smart wardrobe' services with experts and discussing these services with...

Langemeijer, Koen (author)
The three-body problem (3BP) formulated by I. Newton has inspired many great mathematicians like L. Euler (1707-1783), J.L. Lagrange (1736-1813), K.G.J. Jacobi (1804-1851), W.R. Hamilton (1805-1865) and J.H. Poincaré (1854-1912) to develop mathematical studies, methods and theories in an attempt to solve this problem. Although these concepts...

Exoplanets have been detected for more than 15 years. In the vast majority of instances, this has been accomplished through indirect observation. Such methods include among others the observation of radial velocity, transit photometry, and timing variations. These techniques allow for the vast majority of exoplanet detections up to date. An...

Despite the limited amount of empirical evidence, the adoption of the Design Thinking approach is frequently presented as a solution to many of the problems that large organizations face when executing radical innovation projects. In this master thesis, a longitudinal study was conducted which revealed the difficulties of implementing such...
