This work presents a multi-sensor approach for weather condition estimation in automated vehicles. Using combined data from weather sensors (barometer, hygrometer, etc) and an in-vehicle camera, a machine learning and computer vision framework is employed to estimate the current weather condition in realtime and in-vehicle. The use of different...

The increasing traffic load has led to the use of polymer modifiers in bituminous mixes in order to improve the performance and the durability of the pavement structures. Epoxy is a thermoset material which ensures enhanced fatigue performance and improved mechanical characteristics when used to modify bituminous materials. However, unlike...

Following the perspective of the European Horizon 2020 project ‘NUCLEUS’, Responsible Research and Innovation (RRI) should be brought to life in universities and scientific institutions. This study acts as one of the mobile nuclei of the NUCLEUS project, with the goal to operationalize RRI instead of building theories. The aim of this research...

In intermodal transport multiple types of vehicles are used to transport containers. If the routes of the vehicles are known, then the container allocation can be optimized. This problem can be modelled as an integral multi-commodity min cost flow problem on a time-space graph. This model has an arc-based and path-based form. In this thesis, the...

In this work, a possible solution to allow for scalable MATLAB deployment on big data clusters through Spark without using the official MATLAB toolbox is introduced. Other possible solutions that can be used for accelerating existing MATLAB code including calling modules written by Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) and Python Pool with...

A large increase in containerized maritime transport, bigger ships and bigger call sizes cause the need for container transhipment terminals to increase the volume they can handle without increasing their handling costs and handling time at the terminal. This research aims at deepening the understanding of how this goal can be achieved through...

The growing pressure on tank storage terminals is pushing the terminals to find ways to accommodate more vessels by increasing the efficiency of the vessel handling process. This research looks at the possibility of implementing forward planning at such a terminal by simulating multiple strategies and testing the impact on the seaside...

Photovoltaic (PV) systems have provided the world with a renewable and environment friendly energy solution. However, PV systems face various loss mechanisms at the module level as well as power electronics level which need to be addressed for further growth of the technology. Power generation from PV modules suffer from heat losses that are a...

Landfills are full of contaminated material, which could be harmful for the environment. To reduce the risks of pollutants entering the environment, a watertight base layer and an impermeable cover layer isolate the waste. These layers have to be maintained eternally, which is very costly. To move towards a more sustainable landfill aftercare,...

A proposed future mode of mass transit is the hyperloop system, in which magnetically levitating passenger pods travel at high speed through a tube held at low pressure. This thesis will investigate the dynamics of such a system, and determine the influence of various parameters on the dynamic response of the system. The tube has been modelled...

A mega-feeder nourishment is a concentrated nourishment that disperses over time due to wind, waves, and tide, and as a result ‘feeds’ its adjacent coasts. During the design phase of a nourishment, performance indicators can enable an objective comparison of a mega-feeder nourishment to alternative nourishment strategies, In the case of an...

Relevance: To enhance our understanding of motor impairments (e.g. post-stroke or due to Parkinson's Disease), objective measures for communication in the nervous system are required. By applying system identification techniques to oscillations in brain and muscle activity, we can objectively quantify the coupling between these areas.
