This project focuses on the layered history and current situation of District Six in Cape Town, South Africa, which saw forced removals and demolition of non-white residents' homes under the apartheid regime. With only 108 families being allowed to return over the last 55 years later, this project looks at the impact of restitution housing and...

Control of a helicopter with a deployed dipping sound navigation and ranging (SONAR) is no trivial task due to the complex dynamics of the suspension cable. The cable can change shape, which influences the effect of water, wind and the motion of the helicopter itself. To control such a system, a control method is needed that can cope with these...

The first aim of this master thesis is to explore whether the normal force on the castor wheels can be estimated from IMU data using a machine learning approach. The second aim is to evaluate whether incorporating the changing load distribution due to trunk movement could improve the friction power estimation compared with neglecting changes in...

Two-dimensional (membrane) materials have been receiving much scientific attention due to their unique material properties that can be used to study the smallest physical phenomena. One such material is graphene, perceived as the holy grail in material physics, due to its unique material properties. Its aspect ratio diminishes the bending...

Fashion is technological, since the first clothing worn by early humans, the garments have been developed radically to become efficient and comfortable (quick dry, highly warm, extremely light) to match weatherability.<br/>Up until the last decade, fiber technology and materials science was limited to specialists. Since then, textile and...

To improve the safety of commercial air transport, pilots are required to train on simulators to recognize the characteristics of an impeding stall and subsequently correctly recover from it. To prevent negative training, it is important that the accuracy of the used simulation models is high. A manner to model the nonlinear, unsteady...

Decentralised drone swarms need real time collision avoidance, thus requiring efficient, real time relative localisation. This paper explores different data inputs for vision based relative localisation. It introduces a novel dataset generated in <i>Blender</i>, providing ground truth optic flow and depth. Comparisons to <i>MPI Sintel</i>, an...

From the desire to reduce the impact of traveling on the environment and the increase in fuel prices over the past years, the propeller has regained interest as a propulsion mechanism in the aviation industry. Two main reasons can be found in their high propulsive efficiency and ability to combine with electric motors. The scaling of the motors...

Mangrove forests are important (sub)tropical intertidal ecosystems providing coastal protection and other ecosystem services like carbon storage and biodiversity. In view of the loss of these forests many rehabilitation projects have started, but unfortunately these efforts often fail. A main cause for coastal erosion is a disrupted (fine)...

The cover of a children's book could play a crucial role in attracting the attention of young readers and influencing their decision to pick up and read the book. In this study, we aim to identify the factors that contribute to the appeal of children's book covers. Given that the target audience for children's books changes as children grow...

Recently, a few children-centered recommendation systems have been created and evaluated. How- ever, these systems required user interaction to cre- ate ground truth to evaluate the result. This research aims to compare some of the traditional recommen- dation models and explore which trait could impact the recommendation process most for...

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a rapidly growing technology that connects millions of devices together. However, as more devices connect, the importance of ensuring security, privacy, and performance becomes paramount. Training performance is affected without proper protocols in place, and devices can get compromised. This research focuses on...

In this paper, we present a study to improve using neural networks for acoustic reflection localization. Our study focuses on the reimplementation of the proposed neural network model by Bologni et al. and investigates the effect of adding a third microphone to the microphone array. We reimplemented and trained the neural network using the same...

Recommender systems are a useful tool for match- ing readers with books. However, the lack of user data from children, both due to privacy concerns as well as a low incentive to leave reviews, results in existing systems proving inadequate at recom- mending to the youth. It has been shown that chil- dren have a different relation regarding...

Several algorithms can often be used to solve a complex problem, such as the SAT problem or the graph coloring problem. Those algorithms differ in terms of speed based on the size or other features of the problem. Some algorithms perform much faster on a small size while others perform noticeably better on a larger instance. The optimization...

This study examines traits that may be derived from book metadata and identifies statistically signifi- cant patterns and trends in order to assist recom- mender system designers for children’s books in selecting the most important traits to take into ac- count. This research focuses on descriptive such as publish year and structural metadata...

The media watermarking technique domain has had the last 30 years to develop itself. The non-media side, however, is a way newer sub-domain. [1] The data-gathering process for machine learning algorithms is a tedious and time consuming task. This becomes worse as the scale of these algorithms increases. Thus, protecting the datasets against...

Although digital watermarking has been a well-researched topic for the past decades and has seen numerous implementations for relational databases, it still lacks research for non-relational schema-less databases. In this paper, we explore proposed techniques for non-relational database watermarking and introduce an improved technique for NoSQL...

The goal of this paper is to examine how different presentation strategies of Explanainable Artificial Intelligence (XAI) explanation methods for textual data affect non-expert understanding in the context of fact-checking. The importance of understand- ing the decision of an Artificial Intelligence (AI) in human-AI interaction and the need for...

Deep-learning (DL) models could greatly advance the automation of fact-checking, yet have not widely been adopted by the public because of their hard-to-explain nature. Although various techniques have been proposed to use local explanations for the behaviour of DL models, little attention has been paid to global explanations. <br/>In response,...
