Insects have — over millions of years of evolution — perfected many of the systems that roboticists aim to achieve; they can swiftly and robustly navigate through different environments under various conditions while at the same time being highly energy efficient. To reach this level of performance and efficiency one might want to look at and take...

Developing optimal controllers for aggressive high speed quadcopter flight remains a major challenge in the field of robotics. Recent work has shown that neural networks trained with supervised learning are a good candidate for real-time optimal quadcopter control. In these methods, the networks (termed G\&CNets) are trained using optimal...

The performance of linear control is limited by the waterbed effect, while the performance demands of industry are continuously increasing. Using non-linear control in the future is therefore unavoidable. Being non-linear, reset control is able to achieve better performance than linear control. However, the lack of robustness to measurement...

Growth in air traffic demand and the increasing importance of reducing emissions cause airports to consider the improvement of their ground surface movement operations in terms of efficiency and environmental impact. Over the past years, engine-off taxiing techniques have been considered to reduce the environmental impact of airport taxiing...

To achieve high motion accuracy and repeatability for a variable reluctance tunable magnet actuator that uses linear controllers, this article proposes a novel actuator design that has a linearized force-flux relation. Prior designed variable reluctance tunable magnet actuators use a C-shaped actuator that has a quadratic relation between the...

The consumer drone sector is expected to grow rapidly in the coming decades. In Europe alone, it is predicted that in excess of seven million such machines will be flying by 2050. This poses a risk of conflict in dense airspaces, with both aircraft and other drones. Such a growing market provides a need to make drones visible to ATC and other...

Latent profile analysis is a statistical modeling approach used to identify hidden subpopulations (i.e., latent profiles) within a population. These latent profiles are identified based on values of observed continuous variables, also known as profile indicators. While LPA is getting more popular in education sciences and psychology to group...

Motivation: Many tumors show deficiencies in DNA damage repair. These deficiencies can play a role in the disease, but also expose vulnerabilities with therapeutic potential. Targeted treatments exploit specific repair deficiencies, for instance based on synthetic lethality. To decide which patients could benefit from such therapies requires the...

This research focuses on the effects of the socio-technical boundary conditions on the success of chatbot implementation in organizations. To do so, different actor perspectives on "successful implementation" are explored and 33 boundary conditions are proposed. The findings suggest that satisfying the boundary conditions has a positive effect...

Wind energy plays an essential role in the transition to a sustainable future and wind turbines allow us to utilize it. Wind turbines are often installed in close proximity to make the best use of the given space and to save costs. This also has the disadvantage that the turbines influence each other due to wakes. This is where wind farm control...

Heavy-duty trucks (HDTs) are a significant contributor to global anthropogenic carbon emissions. In contrary to passenger cars, HDTs have to cope with decarbonization complications due to range and weight characteristics. Overhead catenary electric road systems (ERS-OC) can aid in decarbonizing this sector. Here, trucks are equipped with a...

Supportive care, regardless of its diversity or who provides it, aims to enhance and preserve the quality of life and independence and to empower and optimize well-being (Fitch, 2008). We can see that digital health can benefit supportive care by empowering users, providing more accessible support, and encouraging self-management. However, the...

Cloud gaming is a new paradigm that allows users to play games in the cloud and stream them to a thin client. While there is little research about cloud gaming, containerization technologies such as Docker could provide a virtualization alternative to Virtual Machines, as these suffer from overhead and GPU pass-through constraints. With Rapture,...

The development of offshore wind technology has progressed rapidly since the first offshore wind farm came to birth in 1991. During the last three decades, offshore wind has become an economically attractive option of renewable energy source for many countries to fulfill their commitment to combat the climate crisis. However, an open challenge...

Banks have started adopting machine learning to reinvent their business functions and improve their decision-making capabilities. However, operationalizing machine learning. i.e. converting machine learning experiments into sustainable production-grade applications, remains a key challenge, which limits banks from realizing the true business...

The Geul river, a tributary of the Meuse located in the south Netherlands, Belgium, and part of Germany, is vulnerable to extreme hydrological events, such as floods, droughts, and erosion. There is evidence that these conditions are exacerbated by land use and climate changes. This thesis focuses on investigating the temporal variability and...

Tactile Internet (TI) is the next step in the evolution of our digital communication. It will extend the conventional audiovisual interaction by enabling the users to convey the sense of touch over vast distances in real time. The potential to transfer haptic (touch) information will have a significant impact on many industries as well as on...

When treating a Chronic Total Occlusion (CTO) via Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI), a guidewire first needs to be passed through or around the occlusion, a task requiring considerable skill and clinician experience. Proper backup support for the guidewire being used by the clinician is a prerequisite to prevent buckling or uncontrolled...

Electric vehicles are a cleaner and more efficient means of transport. However, the sub-energy-optimal acceleration and deceleration inputs of drivers result in speed trajectories that cause superfluous expenditure of the stored electrical energy in battery. Optimising the speed trajectories to minimise the consumption of stored energy is a...
