The mini optical ground station (MISO), on top of the Aerospace Engineering faculty, serves the purpose of demonstrating Free Space Optical Communication technology. A downlink from low earth orbit imposes pointing requirements beyond what can be achieved by the telescope mount. A Fine Pointing Assembly (FPA), the topic of this thesis, aims to...

In the upcoming years more train passengers are expected and with more trains on the tracks railway systems require greater resilience. Switches can play a major role during disruptions as they enable trains to be rerouted onto other tracks, allowing them to bypass the disruption but switches also facilitate overtaking, meet-pass operations at...

Artificial intelligence has a strong need for faster and more energy-efficient solutions, especially for computation performed at the sensor edge. On-chip photonic neural networks (PNNs) offer a promising solution for high speeds and energy efficiency. A less explored side of PNNs is their application to time-series data, which is often the case...

Currently, one of the biggest challenges humanity faces is climate change. Reduction of fossil fuels is demanded in the future, hence an energy transition is required. A promising potential alternative fuel is the energy carrier NaBH<sub>4</sub> which contains hydrogen (H<sub>2</sub>). Handling and storing NaBH<sub>4</sub> provides challenges...

Amsterdam Airport Schiphol characterises itself as a major hub in Europe. Its network is not sustainable with only the Dutch catchment area. Instead, it relies on transfer passengers. When new tax regimes and policies are implemented to combat the environmental impacts of the airport, a change in passenger flows could affect Schiphol’s network...

The drilling industry faces the challenge of moving away from conventional maintenance strategies to maximise operational efficiency. This thesis introduces a holistic approach to land drilling rig Predictive Maintenance (PdM), integrating component maintenance into system-level decision-making. By taking the operations of the whole system into...

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is an important imaging modality, since it can create high-resolution cross-sectional images of the human body. In MRI scanners, the nuclear spin magnetization is excited using radio-frequency pulses. Images are created based on the time-evolution of this magnetization, which is characterized by relaxation times ...

E-learning has shifted the traditional learning paradigms in higher education, offering more flexible, ubiquitous, and personalized learning experiences. The previous years COVID-19 pandemic required a re-calibration of education to accommodate virtual learning environments from the traditional classroom-based education. Widespread learning...

Accurate capacity planning is essential to ensure uninterrupted services and network stability through peak hours for the transport core network of KPN. This involves a trade-off between minimizing the risks of capacity shortages and costs of capacity expansions. High network loads are occurring more frequently and their magnitude is increasing....

Food and medicines are two of the most essential categories of goods for human beings, providing vital nourishment and healthcare. However, as these products are commercialized and distributed on a global scale, consumers face the threat of counterfeit and deteriorated products. In response, this dissertation presents four prototypes consisting...

With the introduction of autonomous vehicles on public roads, their performance in emergency situations has become a strong focus. Collision Imminent Control (CIC) concerns the planning and control of aggressive evasive maneuvers for collision avoidance of automated vehicles. CIC is implemented using adaptive Nonlinear Model Predictive Control ...

Gaining insights into anticipated future expenses is essential for both the planning and construction phases of a project. A significant factor in future costs, particularly over extended periods, is the variability of material and labor prices. the change in costs over time, known as ’cost escalation,’ has been the focus of numerous research...

The Landing Platform Dock vessel is mainly designed to support amphibious operations in which landing operations play an important role. For operating landing craft the vessel has a well dock at the stern, designed to station several landing craft. Landing operations are restricted by the motions of the Landing Platform Dock vessel and by the...

Long truck queues and congestion around terminals is a common sight, however they come with many negative externalities for all the stakeholders involved. Truck Appointment System (TAS) is the most commonly used system to face these problems, but it still has some drawbacks and limitations. Consequently, in this research an extension of the...

Through several contractions, stiff competition, and increasing passenger expectations, airports must evolve continually. One of the main avenues for this has been improving the efficiency of the security check- points, which are airports’ primary bottlenecks. Operational optimisation methods, such as resource and task scheduling are relatively...

In recent decades, dielectric lens antennas have been more and more adopted and developed for sensing and imaging applications at sub-millimeter (sub-mm) wavelengths because they can achieve high gain while keeping their physical size and weight acceptable at these wavelengths. More recently, as low-loss and low-cost lens materials have become...

Background: In the Netherlands, the COVID-19 pandemic resulted in a temporary halt of population screening for cancer and limited hospital capacity for non-COVID care. We aimed to investigate the impact of the pandemic on the in-hospital diagnostic pathway of breast cancer (BC) and colorectal cancer (CRC). Methods: 71,159 BC and 48,900 CRC...
