Visits to the pediatric outpatient clinic are often accompanied by stress and anxiety, not only in the child but also within the parents. Within current trends in healthcare, parents are becoming more and more involved in the treatment of their child. The Hospital Hero Foundation, that already developed an app to reduce hospital related fear and...

The railway industry is constantly growing to meet the demand of society for stable, accessible and sustainable transportation. With this growth, the need for the railway to be reliable increases, requiring frequent surveying and maintenance. Fugro's RILA (Rail Infrastructure aLignment Acquisition) mobile mapping system contributes by making the...

Lower-limb exoskeletons often use trajectory-tracking control to define the device's motion and assistance level. One challenge lies in ensuring a smooth and comfortable interaction between the user and the robotic device by defining a reference trajectory. While recent research has focused on generating individualized gait patterns based on...

Autonomy in traffic (e.g., autonomous vehicles) could potentially benefit mobility, safety, accessibility and sustainability. However, the realisation of these advancements is highly dependent on how effective these autonomous vehicles interact with vulnerable road users such as pedestrians. Before we can understand how pedestrians will interact...

With a dedicated mission to the Martian moons, Phobos and Deimos, set to launch soon, there is a growing interest in further exploring these moons using low-thrust propulsion. This paper investigates the trajectory design for a sample-return mission from Deimos using fuel-free solar sail propulsion technology, aiming to maximize operational time...

Cryogenic and semi-cryogenic propellants are the most commonly used liquid propellants for applications in medium-lift launch vehicles. Despite their high performance, the storage requirements for these propellants often lead to complex, heavy, and voluminous structures. The only storable propellant used in medium-lift launch vehicles, UDMH/NTO,...

In recent years, the deployment of ground-based mobile robots has gained more and more interest in various domains. In contrast to other types of mobile robots, legged robots can traverse irregular terrains, climb stairs, and step over obstacles. However, these unique properties intensify the energy demand and require highly advanced perception...

Contingency planning, wherein an agent generates a set of possible plans conditioned on the outcome of an uncertain event, is an increasingly popular way for robots to act under uncertainty. In this work we take a game-theoretic perspective on contingency planning, tailored to multi-agent scenarios in which a robot's actions impact the...

The ollie is the base aerial human–board maneuver, foundational to most modern skateboarding tricks. We formulate and solve an optimal control problem of a two-dimensional simplified human model and a rigid body skateboard with the objective of maximizing the height of the ollie. Our solution simultaneously discovers realistic human-applied...

Weather obstacles in the airspace can interfere with an aircraft’s flight plan. Pilots, assisted by air traffic controllers (ATCs), perform avoidance maneuvers that can be optimized. This paper addresses the generation of alternative aircraft trajectories to resolve unexpected events. The authors propose a solution based on the RRG algorithm,...

Tracing fast nanopore-translocating analytes requires a high-frequency measurement system that warrants a temporal resolution better than 1 µs. This constraint may practically shift the challenge from increasing the sampling bandwidth to dealing with the rapidly growing noise with frequencies typically above 10 kHz, potentially making it...

Air traffic sector demand and capacity balancing is an important process to enable safe and efficient flight execution. In current operations, demand and capacity are determined based on schedules and flight plans. In reality, disruptions to flights create a different situation that may not have been anticipated by the Air Navigation Service...

The evolution of aerial vehicle technology necessitates robust trajectory prediction models. These models are crucial for maintaining safe airspace and enabling autonomous operations. Automatic dependent surveillance–broadcast (ADS-B) is a surveillance system that enables aircraft to receive data from navigation satellites and periodically...

Recent literature in real-time trajectory planning has proposed using Control Barrier Functions (CBFs) as collision constraints in Model Predictive Control (MPC) for efficient guidance, a concept referred to as MPC-CBF. This concept has been explored for both first and second-order CBFs. However, these approaches relied on an analytical...

The startup Rocket Factory Augsburg (RFA) is developing the RFA ONE orbital launch vehicle. A significant hurdle for its closed-loop guidance is the need to fully deplete the third stage for insertion during the first flight, which results in lengthy burn-arcs and complexity not managed properly by traditional guidance algorithms. Additionally,...

Insertion maneuvers are used to move a spacecraft from an open orbit (parabolic or hyperbolic) into a closed orbit around a target body. These maneuvers are key components in any space mission considering orbiting a body for a large amount of time, for exploration or landing; the hyperbolic orbit will be the one that will be used to transfer...

The development of reusable launch vehicles in space exploration is a significant paradigm shift in the aerospace industry. Among numerous approaches to fully reusable launchers, a flyback booster, complemented by the emerging importance of spaceplanes, stands out as a viable solution. To outweigh the drawbacks associated with the cost, a...

Temporarily Captured Orbiters (TCOs) - also known as Earth’s mini-moons – are meter-size asteroid fragments temporarily trapped in the Earth-Moon system. TCOs are challenging to identify due to their small size and high speed. While only two TCOs have been confirmed so far, studies suggest a constant presence of at least one TCO at any given...

This thesis presents a comprehensive approach to integrating a trajectory planner and follower for autonomous vehicles (AVs) using model predictive contouring control (MPCC). The planner generates collision-free trajectories with a kinematic bicycle model, while the follower tracks them using a dynamic bicycle model with a smaller integration...
