Our remarkable sense of touch provides us the feedback that is crucial for successfully manipulating a wide range of objects.<br/>The unconscious synergy between touch and the precision grip is particularly astonishing.<br/>During precision manipulation, humans constantly control their grip force to maintain a safety margin of approximately 25...

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...

Nowadays, electric vehicles (EVs) in the market only travel short distance and are usually charged at home which can be the obstacle in the way of EVs development. As a result, fast charging that can ensure long-distance drive with shorter charging time draws more and more attention.<br/><br/>In emerging fast-charging stations, DC fast chargers ...

Renewable energy generation projects are often measured by their peak capacity. A wind farm rated at 25 MW will generate 25 MW of power under the right circumstances. This peak capacity is reached very little in practice. However, these generators are forced to purchase grid operation infrastructure that can handle this peak generation event....

Formal verification of imperative programs can be carried out on paper by annotating programs to obtain an outline of a proof in the style of Hoare. This process has been mechanized by the introduction of Separation Logic and computer assisted verification tools. However, the tools fail to achieve the readability and convenience of manual paper...

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...

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...

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...

The majority of existing infrastructure assets are ageing, and sooner or later, they will have reached the end of their service life. As a result, many asset owners are confronted with large-scale replacement projects in the coming decades. Annually, they allocate a significant number of resources, but these budgets are never adequate for...

Due to global warming, in the construction sector there is aimed for a transition towards the circular economy. The past years, many utility buildings were demolished, consisting of a concrete structure. This results in concrete rubble which is often down- or recycled. For new construction projects, new concrete elements will be produced....

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...

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...

Regional climate model (RCMs) simulations are used in hydrological (climate-change) impact assessment studies. However, RCMs exhibit noticeable deviation from observation, and can show large variation in ensemble projections (biases). The objective of this study is twofold, first to assess the robustness of two high-skill bias-correction methods...

Flash floods are a major concern in hydrology and natural hazard science due to their high potential of causing fatalities and damages. They are caused by short, high-intensity rainfall and characterized by a flood event happening within six hours of the onset of precipitation.<br/>In July 2021 an extremely large rainfall event took place in the...
