This thesis proposes a method of detecting autonomic neuropathy in low-income countries using an infrared camera. Access to healthcare is often limited in low-income countries delaying the detection of neuropathy. If neuropathy can be detected in the earliest stage, often the autonomic state, damage to motor and sensory nerves can be prevented....

Strong intergenerational relationships can provide emotional support and stability for both grandparents and grandchildren. Technology tools have been proven to be beneficial in connecting grandchildren and grandparents. Prior work mainly examined how to use technology to connect children and their grandparents over a distance. Those collocated...

In China, the takeaway industry has been steadily rising, gradually maturing, and evolving into a large-scale dining market. Urban white-collar consumers constitute the primary user base for food delivery and are the target user group for this project. However, food delivery waste has yet to be adequately addressed. During the theme exploration...

Climate change poses a significant threat to global lifestyles, necessitating urgent action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs). The Netherlands, committed to the Paris Climate Agreement, faces the challenge of meeting ambitious emission reduction targets set by the European Union's Fit for 55 initiative. However, the integration of...

Given the building sector's significant impact on energy consumption and CO2 emissions, there is a clear need for a sustainable solution. Here, smart building technologies are emerging as a promising response, as they offer the potential to improve operational efficiency while reducing environmental impact. However, the development of smart...

The need for better fuel efficiency within the growing aviation sector is increasing every day. Meanwhile conventional aircraft are reaching an asymptote regarding fuel efficiency and therefore the focus switches to unconventional aircraft. These aircraft have unique challenges whereof one is the structural connection between engine and aircraft...

Introduction <br/>An innovative, patient-specific, hip implant was developed for canine patients suffering from developmental hip dysplasia. In a first cohort study, the post-operative positions of the implants deviated with an average of 5 mm when compared to the pre-operatively planned positions. A novel augmented reality (AR) based intra...

Electric vehicles have become the focal point to reduce GHG in the quest for cleaner and more efficient means of transportation. At the core of this transition lies the key component of energy storage, the battery pack. The battery pack has electrodes manufactured with the binder PVDF. Using fluorine-rich compounds makes processing and recycling...

Forensic microtrace investigation relies on a time- and labour-intensive process of manually analysing samples via microscopy. To aid forensic experts in their investigations, an image recognition model for microtrace localisation and classification is needed. This work investigates the trace recognition accuracy that can be achieved by...

Progress in Laser powder bed fusion manufacturing has led to greater use of Additive Manufacturing in combustion chambers/nozzles. This allows for the creation of more intricate and efficient solutions, but generates the need for a better understanding of how surface roughness in micro-channels used for engine cooling relates to build angle and...

Angiogenesis, i.e. the formation of blood vessels from existing ones, plays a vital role in bone or wound healing. The expansion of vascularization facilitates the healing process through the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to the injured site and through the removal of waste products. Clinical observations indicate that impaired angiogenesis...

The lock of Hansweert, located in the province of Zeeland in the Netherlands, serves as a crucial inland shipping node between the Western Scheldt estuary and the Rhine Delta. The outer harbour of the lock complex provides the connection to the Western Scheldt and accommodates waiting facilities for inland ships. The Western Scheldt is a vital...

The consequences of climate change are becoming more and more visible. A significant cause of this is CO2 emissions; the shipping sector is responsible for 3% of global CO2 emissions. As a result, the Fourth IMO GHG Study 2020 presents pathways to reduce the GHG emission of the shipping industry by 50% by 2050. Recent IMO goals have overtaken...

Flood risks and its consequences become more and more challenging and are demanding for the currently present dike systems and hydraulic structures in the Netherlands. This automatically raises the question for the possibility of adjustable temporary deployable flood defences that work autonomously. Nowadays it is more likely that a standard...

Facing the critical challenge of reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the maritime industry, this thesis explores the potential of smart control systems using Reinforcement Learning (RL) for autonomous sailing. Traditional controls for sailing fall short in navigating the complex, dynamic conditions of maritime environments. RL has shown...

The predominant influence of geometry and tensile stress on the Q factor of nanomechanical resonators is a phenomenon commonly described as dissipation dilution. In recent years, a variety of studies has looked into maximizing this effect, resulting in an assortment of softly-clamped resonator designs. This paper proposes a methodology that uses...

New insights into the landing behavior of bumblebees show an adaptive strategy where the optical flow expansion of the landing target is step-wise regulated. In this article, the potential benefits of this approach are studied by replicating the landing experiment with a quadrotor. To this end, an open-loop switching method is developed,...
