Current service and installation activities for offshore wind turbines are carried out by jack-up vessels, which eliminate wave disturbances to a large extent. The use of these vessels imposes several disadvantages, including high operational costs and the limitation of operating in restricted water depths. An alternative is a crane mounted on a...

Drones are increasingly used nowadays, primarily for visual inspection tasks facilitated by onboard cameras. The field of aerial manipulation tries to expand the capabilities of drones by attaching a manipulator, enabling physical interaction. Unfortunately, the usability of aerial manipulators is hindered by disturbances resulting from the...

Aviation is an important contributor to anthropogenic climate change. As indirect greenhouse gases, nitrogen oxides (NOx = NO + NO2) add to the Effective Radiative Forcing (ERF) induced by aircraft emissions. This work addresses a better understanding of emission mitigation by investigating dependencies between engine parameters and emitted...

The main bearing is a critical wind turbine drivetrain component, and its failure can cause the turbine shutdown and expensive repair. As the main bearing degrades, its temperature increases, indicating health deterioration of the component. Various methods proposed in the literature employ physics-based normal behavior models (NBMs) using...

Haptic shared controllers (HSCs) are a promising solution to prevent human over-reliance on automation during tasks such as car driving. However, research has shown that if the HSC is tuned incorrectly, then there is a risk of haptic conflicts between the human and HSC. To address this challenge, this paper presents the design and implementation...

Falling remains a large source of (traumatic) injuries and healthcare costs. Over the past years, different actuators have been developed in the field of wearable robotics to help prevent injuries from falling. To increase the wearability of these systems, the weight of power storage can be decreased with intermittent instead of continuous...

Fully distributed hydrological models take into account the spatial variability of a catchment, and allow for assessing its hydrological response at virtually any location. However, these models can be time-consuming when it comes to model runtime and calibration, especially for large-scale catchments. Meanwhile, deep learning models have shown...

Micro-indentation testing has shown great promise in extracting local mechanical properties of ductile metal materials. Although the relevant contact physics has been well revealed since the 19th century, interpreting the indentation data still poses many challenges at the application level. Regarding one of the mainstream methodologies for...

The Global Shipping industry is responsible for transporting 90% of global commerce and is responsible for 3% of global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. Addressing this, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) aims to reduce GHG emissions from international shipping by 40% by 2030 and achieve net zero by 2050. This study explores Low...

The increasing presence of robots calls for a more seamless and information-rich communication method between humans and robots. This paper explores how natural user interface (NUI) modalities, particularly speech and gesture controls, can be used through augmented reality (AR) to operate robots. The increasing presence of robots calls for...

Foremost among the challenges of the Bitcoin blockchain is the scalability bottleneck. To address this issue, the Lightning Network, a payment channel network, was created. Lightning is a payment channel network that is source-routed and uses onion routing, like Tor. However, unlike Tor, the routing path is determined by optimizing a cost...
