A manufacturing technology is proposed to manufacture polymeric membrane scaffolds for culturing of cells, tissues, and organoids with integrated sensor capabilities and fluidic functionalities. A multilayer substrate is imprinted with a soft mold to manufacture polymeric membrane scaffolds for culturing of cells, tissues, and organoids with...

Objective. Dexterous control of myoelectric upper limb prosthesis is still limited by the capabilities of the modern human-machine interfaces. The first goal of the current work was to develop a system that supplements the academic myoelectric state-of-the-art interface during the interaction with objects (e.g., grasping, manipulation) with the...

The fast termination of the last glacial period was strongly influenced by how fast the Earth’s crust rebounded. Formally, this process is known as Glacial Isostatic Adjustment, and is the viscoelastic response of the solid Earth to glacial surface loads. Models to simulate the dynamical evolution of an ice sheet assume homogeneous properties...

Photographers suffer from many challenging problems when separating and compositing images, such as the color camouflage and unpleasant color bleeding artifacts. To tackle these issues, we present a solution to fore- and background segmentation for images taken from multiple cameras, which introduce the parallax that leads to the foreground...

In the last ten years, the airlines are demanding lower aircraft prices and fuel consumption. Aircraft manufacturers as well as component and sub-assembly manufacturers are adapting to this situation by optimizing existing aircraft configurations. Traditional design processes, due to their inability to capture multidisciplinarity at the early...

The prosthetic eye is created to help people who have lost an eye. The eye itself can only improve the appearance but without any optic function. In order to optimize the appearance, a prosthetic eye with a pupil that can dilate and contract according to the light level, just like the natural eye, is desired. The primary goal of this work is to...

In recent years, microfluidic systems are used in various fields. In important component is the valve. In a variety of valve principles, the electrowetting valve promises high reliability, good controllability, low voltage operation and high transmission speed characteristics. The micro-fabrication method to create a chip-level electrowetting...

Kinodynamic motion planning for a robot involves generating a trajectory from a given robot state to goal state while satisfying kinematic and dynamic constraints. Rapidly-exploring Random Trees (RRT) is a sampling-based algorithm that has been widely adopted for this. However, RRT is not fast enough to enable its use in industrial applications....

Polarimetry is a powerful remote sensing technique that can be used to characterize plane- tary atmospheres and potentially, to detect and characterize exoplanets. The degree of linear polarization as a function of wavelength and phase angle varies with the presence and compo- sition of cloud, haze and gas particles. In particular, when in-situ...

Beach scarps are nearly vertical seaward facing walls within the cross-shore beach profile. These features are often associated with eroding (nourished) coastlines and can reach heights of O(2-3 m), leading to serious hazards to beach users and negatively impacting local ecosystems. New insights into beach scarp morphodynamics related to...

Flexible electronics have become the subject of industry focus, generating a market desire for fully flexible temperature sensors. To the best of our knowledge, there are no current systems that can adequately satisfy both the mechanical flexibility and sensing performance demanded for commercial applications. This work focused on a design for a...

Partial Differential Equations (PDEs) are a fundamental tool in modelling various
physical phenomena. The lack of closed form solutions in most cases continues to provide a strong incentive to seek stable and consistent numerical methods. This report deals specifically with the mixed and hybrid nite element formulations; ideas that were...

In this paper a range-based relative localization solution is proposed and demonstrated in practice. The approach is based on wireless range measurements between robots, along with the communication of their velocities, accelerations, yaw rates, and height. It can be implemented on many robotic platforms without the need for dedicated sensors....

The problem encountered by TIM Solutions was mainly based on experiences of their own in different hospitals. The project was therefore started with mapping the wishes of possibile users and mapping the current context. Already in the beginning it turned out that fluid balance measurements are well based estimations as not all aspects are being...

Safe navigation in a cluttered environment is a key capability for the autonomous operation of Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAVs). This work explores a (deep) Reinforcement Learning (RL) based approach for monocular vision based obstacle avoidance and goal directed navigation for MAVs in cluttered environments. We investigated this problem in the...

Fouling (algae, slime, and barnacles) on the hull of large cargo vessels is undesirable because it increases their frictional drag, resulting in an increased fuel consumption. As a solution, Fleet Cleaner introduced a ship hull cleaning robot that maneuvers on the hull, using powered wheels and magnets. The robot is controlled by a human...

The main objective of a Master Plan is to develop an integral long-term development plan to guide the future of an airport. One important element is the capacity analysis as a first step in strategic airport planning. The research commissioned by NACO is boiled down to the main research objective: to contribute to the development of Strategic...

The two performance areas “security” and “efficiency” in airport security operations cannot be analyzed apart from each other, since influencing one has a large impact on the other. In this research agent-based modelling is used to analyze dynamic relations and trade-offs between security and efficiency within airport security operations....

Since the 19th century hopper dredgers have been used for civil operations such as land reclamation and water way maintenance. In the past 25 years a trend of scale enlargement of hopper dredgers driven by economic and productivity reasons is seen. Scaling of the designs has effect on strength and fatigue assessment as well on settling of...

A rock fracture is a mechanical break or discontinuity that separates a rock body into two or more parts. The continuity or cohesion of the rock body is lost across a fracture. Fractures are formed in response to stress on a rock. A rock breaks and forms a fracture when the applied stress reaches the rock strength. Vertical fractures improve...
