Haptic shared control (HSC) is a method to combine the abilities of humans and machines, in which human and automation jointly exert forces on an input device. According to human-centered design, the underlying controller for HSC should closely resemble human behavior. This paper aims to continuously adapt HSC based on an online identified...

The Ampelmann system offers a safe and reliable solution for offshore access. As safety is a key factor, an extensive safety and warning management system is employed which accommodates for different fault types that may occur. Accommodation of sensor failure in the Ampelmann system is currently done through switching to a redundant component....

Car industry and motorsport development nowadays strongly rely on wind tunnel testing. As the literature survey shows, in order to fully understand the characteristics of the flow around a car, large-scale and volumetric flow field measurements are required. For its features, PIV can be pointed as a useful technique for automotive wind tunnels....

Our climate is changing. In the Netherlands, higher rainfall intensities and longer periods of drought are expected in the coming years. Urban environments have to be adapted in order to maintain (or improve) the living standards that we have set for today. Models of the urban drainage system play a vital role in the identification of flood...

Colloidal allostery is a regulatory mechanism where specific metabolites regulate the protein activity by binding to them and changing their energy landscape. The first steps to model this system on a colloidal scale were made by studying the depletion interaction between the hydrogel posts and the rigid polystyrene particles. Using soft...

Spike sorting is the gold standard algorithm to detect and classify neural spikes in extracellular electrophysiological data. The classical spike sorting algorithm is, however, not scalable to process thousands of neurons, and not fast enough to be applied on real time. Alternatively other algorithms have been implemented that are not only...

Cultured meat has the potential of becoming a more sustainable alternative to current meat production.
Production costs need to decrease for further developing the product and to eventually become a competitive
alternative. The goal of this thesis is to design a system in which 10 kg of muscles can be created on a yearly
basis, while...

The whole construct of explicit algebraic Reynolds stress models, as they are known in RANS, is based on the weak equilibrium assumption. By employing this assumption, and in addition, incorporating models for terms in the Reynolds stress transport equations, the system of six partial differential equations can be simplified to an algebraic form...

In the manufacturing of semi-conductor devices there is a constant demand for increasing precision and yield. Measuring and controlling overlay errors is essential in this process, but these measurements are difficult and costly. Predictive models can be used as an addition to measurements, but they required labelled data for training. To...

SRAM PUF has a potential to become the main player in hardware security. Unfor- tunately, currently available solutions are usually locked to specific entities, such as companies or universities. Here, we introduce the first open source project to de- velop software-based SRAM PUF technology using off-the-shelf SRAM. We also present testing...

Asteroid Reflection Model (ARM) is a newly developed model that simulates reflected radiation and polarization on an asteroid's surface. The working principle behind the model is radiative transfer using Fourier series expansions of reflection matrices. Input models and parameters are: a triangle polyhedron shape model of an asteroid, a surface...

Due to the recent advancements in artificial intelligence based sound analysis, digital stethoscopes soon will be ready to leave behind the clinics of general practitioners, cardiologists, and pulmonologists and move to the homes of patients. But which patients could benefit the most from the technology and how would this step affect the design...

A composite wind turbine blade is partially thick-walled to comply with high strength criteria. When the manufacturer’s recommended cure cycle (MRCC), which is designed for thin-walled components, is used for thick-walled components it can lead to high levels of residual stress. This experimental research investigates different cure cycles for...

PID is the most popular controller in the industry. PID controllers are linear, and thus have fundamental limitations, such that certain performance criteria cannot be achieved. To overcome these limitations, nonlinear reset control can be used. Reset control can achieve less overshoot and a faster response time than linear controllers. However,...

The intensive care is a complex environment where nurses have to deal with more than 500 tasks a day, an administrative burden and an information overspill coming from a multitude of IT systems and colleagues. On top of that, a high rate of alarms is false and messages are not always relevant. These stressors have a large impact on patient...

One of the most enriching relationships of human beings is the relationship between owner and companion-animal, including more specifically the relationship between owner and cat. Cats are the third-most important source for social support and security for human-beings. Cats are relatively easy to take care of and make people feel needed. Owners...
