In the REstore Voiding Urinary rEtention (REValUE) project, a high frequency stimulator is designed that should be able to determine the optimal parameters to block the urethral sphincter. In this report the design of the control, interface, current source and electrode switching circuit of the device is explained – the other parts are explained...

In the history of the World Solar Challenge, a six day challenge from Darwin to Adelaide, one car has proved to be dominating: the Nuon Solar Car. A telemetry application played an important role in this, but needed to be updated. This was realised by the new Mission Control application project: "Building a GUI for Nuna's Mission Control". In...

Kitepower is a start up that generates energy using kites. The Kitepower system consists of airborne components, and a ground station where a drum is connected to a generator/electrical motor. For generating energy a so called pumping cycle is performed. In a pumping cycle energy is generated during the traction phase when the kite pulls the...

The available shoulder harness controlled prostheses do no fulfill the requirements of the users. It is unknown for which operating forces and cable displacements the user can make good use of proprioceptive feedback without feeling pain, discomfort or fatigue. These operating forces and cable displacements can be related to grasping forces and...

The next generation of ground-based telescopes have a segmented primary mirror consisting of up to 800 segments which are mounted on a support truss. These segments are actively controlled to correct for external disturbances of which wind loading is the primary source. As mirror size and number of segments grows ever larger, dynamic coupling...

Spaceplanes represent a new promising concept for space flight. A spaceplane is a reusable, safe, efficient and economical space transportation system that can generate lift during its atmospheric flight, analogously to an aircraft, and it is able to travel in space as a spacecraft. What makes spaceplanes so attractive is the possibility of...

Recent years have seen a steep increase in research being performed towards active space debris removal: space debris has proven to be a very real threat to operational spacecraft, and studies indicate that the frequency of collisions will only increase if nothing is done to remove large pieces of debris. In particular, ESA has done studies...

This thesis concerns the design and construction of an automatic drilling fluid measurement setup and the use of such setup to control the drilling fluid pH. The construction of the experimental setup include modifications to the acquired rheometer to obtain reliable batch rheology measurements within the typical viscosity range of a shear...

Most robots receive information about their own dynamics or about their environment before starting to work on their tasks. This makes them less fit for operating in unknown environments without human supervision. In this thesis, the goal is to let a robot learn the relation between its actions and perceptions autonomously. This problem is...

Already for some time, electronic enhancements regarding vehicle behavior has made its way into the aviation and automotive industry by the term "by-wire" technology. Electronic sensors and actuators are used to replace traditional mechanical systems in which software is used to operate the actuators in a way that is not possible with...

This report deals with the design of a complete guidance, navigation and control system for a planetary lander on Enceladus, for both descent and repositioning. A basic lander model with a main engine, attitude thrusters and a landing gear is presented, for which the equations of motion in different reference frames are derived, including the...

Optimistic Planning is a model-based online planning algorithm that guarantees near-optimal actions for the control arbitrarily nonlinear systems. Planning algorithms aim to find optimal actions by starting from the current state and developing a tree representation of sequences of actions and resulting states, using a model to simulate state...

This master thesis describes the dynamical behaviour of a loudspeaker woofer and the modelling of it. By the use of the knowledge gained from the model, a feedback controller is implemented in order to enhance the woofer’s performance in terms of acoustic total harmonic distortion (THD) and low frequency bandwidth. The first objective of the...

A new type of polymeric artificial muscle was recently discovered. This muscle is based on twisted and coiled polymer fiber and is actuated thermally. It has interesting properties, such as low costs and high work densities. Based on fabrication methods, two variations can be considered. The autocoiled variation has a larger load capacity and...

This thesis investigates whether interval methods can be employed in the construction of a novel controller synthesis algorithm based on backward induction. Interval methods are methods employing interval arithmetic, which is an arithmetic defined on real-valued intervals rather than on real-valued numbers. In the controller synthesis algorithm...

The number of cars on the road and the need for transportation has increased rapidly during the past decades, leading to an increase of congestion. Traffic congestion and delays lead to high societal costs. Congestion leads to a capacity drop, i.e. the capacity of the road is reduced when congestion sets in. Due to limited financial and physical...

The topic of this study is the control of signalized intersections, specifically the control of switching lanes, which are approach lanes of which the traffic assignment can be changed. When the demand at an intersection varies considerably, being able to change the lane configuration can reduce delay, especially in saturated conditions....
