Manganese nodules have been lying on the deep sea soil for centuries before they became known. The first ones to discover the nodules were Murray and Renard, during their scientific cruise between 1872 and 1876 (Murray and Renard, 1876). The Clarion-Clipperton Zone, located between Mexico and Hawaii, appears to have a virtually inexhaustible...

Thermal oxidation in silicon microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) induces stress in the oxide film and silicon. Such residual stresses are usually unwanted, as it can influence performance or damage components. It can also cause unwanted plastic deformation in silicon, as was observed in previous research. Currentmeasurement methods inMEMSare...

Automation in a domestic environment is not flawless and human interference will be necessary, for implementing robots in this environment.
When remotely controlling semi-autonomous robots, proposed concepts can be divided into two main concepts: To trade control back and forth between the human and the operator and to share control...

This research explores the factors that challenge the implementation of Revenue Management (RM) in manufacturing industries. Previous research focused mainly on Order Management to explain how RM could be applied with studies that are mathematical by nature. However, there is no empirical study explaining the implementation process of RM in...

Dimensionality reduction algorithms transform high-dimensional datasets with many attributes per observation into lower-dimensional representations (called embeddings) such that the structure of the dataset is maintained as well as possible. In this research, the use of Virtual Reality (VR) to analyse these embeddings has been evaluated and...

This graduation report describes the motivation and processing that resulted in the Zesturn. The product is designed to make vegetable trimmings and leftovers, which are otherwise discarded, directly available for cooking in Dutch family households. The Zesturn facilitates this through converting vegetable scraps into powders that can be...

Autonomous MAV are an emerging technology that supports a wide range of applications such as medical delivery or finding survivors in disaster scenarios. As flying in such missions is difficult the robust estimation of an MAV's state within its environment is crucial to ensure safe operation. In indoor scenarios, cameras are one of the...

Safe surgical and anesthetic care is not available to 5 billion people worldwide. Many problems that are encountered when providing surgical care are related to surgical equipment. A lot of surgical equipment is designed for the use in High-Income Countries (HICs) and not specifically for Low-and-Middle Income countries (LMICs). One appliance,...

The robotic volumetric PIV system of the TU Delft is proposed to be used to gather quantitative data in the wakes of footballs. For over a decade now, a new football is introduced every FIFA World Cup. The varying surface characteristics affect the behaviour of the footballs in flight, and so football aerodynamics has become subject to increased...

The digital representations of physical places, known as Points-Of-Interest (POIs), have been the core element of various studies and platforms such as online mapping services (e.g. Google Maps) and location based social networks (e.g. Foursquare). The use of POIs as proxies of the real-world-places facilitates the study of places, urban...

In this thesis the equilibrium cross-sectional areas of a tidal inlet are investigated. The most common used methods to study cross-sectional stability are the Escoffier method (Escoffier, 1940) and the Modified Escoffier method (Van de Kreeke, 2004). The Escoffier methods are mainly empirical and lack physical justification. Therefore, in this...

In the Netherlands, there are around 3750 patients suffering from an upper limb deficiency. Many different prosthetic hands have been designed to give these people the function of their hand back. Of the people who own such a prosthetic hand, about forty percent does not wear their hand and about half of the wearers does not use all of the...

Human Computation (HC) has established itself to be a powerful tool for carrying out certain simple and repetitive tasks in the form of microtasks, which to this day are still difficult for a machine to automate.
With the latest increase in interest in machine learning, HC has similarly gotten more attention as a popular way to acquire...

Neurologically impaired patients can regain motor function by engaging in rehabilita- tion. Currently there is no conclusive evidence that robotic rehabilitation has better clinical results than conventional rehabilitation but robotic rehabil- itation has the potential to increase efficiency and patient motivation, justifying improvement of reha...
