Exhaust emissions of maritime vessels are becoming increasingly important due to their contribution to air pollutant concentration on land, especially in port areas. For this reason, Emission Control Areas (ECA) were introduced in Europe to reduce SOx emissions. This has been expanded to more stringent NOx regulations for new vessels in 2021....

Electric vehicles are destined to become the main form of people transport in the near future. They are noise and emission free with the potential to offer completely zero-emission use when the energy used to charge their batteries is generated from renewable resources. On-board PV, PV that is integrated into the body of the car is a novel...

The observable infrared signature of naval platforms is crucial in determining survivability and is therefore an important issue in warfare. Increased detectability in the EM spectrum leads to higher susceptibility against threats like sea skimming anti-ship missiles. The infrared platform signature is not a fixed quantity but a highly dynamic...

Cyber-physical systems (CPS) are complex, heterogeneous, and dynamic systems, spanning hardware and software components ranging from edge devices to cloud platforms. CPS need to satisfy many rigorous constraints, e.g., with respect to deadlines, safety, and quality, yielding a large configuration space where only a limited number of...

A study was undertaken to define which set of signal characteristics can be used to differentiate between various vibration sources in a built environment. Several datasets of vibration measurements on known sources are obtained and analyzed. A set of 11 signal characteristics were determined for all signals. Based on the correlation between...

Transport and logistics is one of the most important economic sectors contributing to the climate change. By the nature of transport and logistics operations, the sector is one of the most difficult ones to decarbonize. This paper proposes using carbon footprinting tools to optimize logistics operations with respect to emissions, and to setup...

Studies indicate that the energy performance gap between real and calculated energy use can be explained for 80% by occupant behaviour. This human factor may be composed of routine and thermoregulatory behaviour. When occupants do not feel comfortable due to high or low operative temperatures and resulting high or low skin temperatures, they are...

Composite constructions are indispensable in current and future society. Fiber Bragg Gratings (FBGs) embedded in composite need to be carefully aligned with the material fibers to reduce inhomogeneous lateral load exerted onto the FBG which occurs due to the inhomogeneous nature of composite materials. Inhomogeneous load causes distortion of the...

This paper analyses the implications of a new form of surveillance—sewage monitoring—for criminal procedural law. Current law has not been written with a view to covering novel, technology-enabled forms of covert data acquisition, posing a challenge of regulatory connection. To what extent are new surveillance methods, such as sewage monitoring...

Scale and corrosion affect the production certainty of oil and gas well. Scale build-up reduces flow and ultimately could shut down production when it block to tubing completely. Corrosion of the tubing wall occurs very often simultaneously with scale build-up and affects the integrity of the tubing wall. Vital information about the integrity is...

Transportation infrastructure assets are designed to meet pre-specified reliability, availability, maintainability and safety (RAMS) requirements. Electrical and mechanical components are critical elements with respect to the RAMS-criteria. Unplanned failure of these components lead to societal impact, unsafe situations or costs. The trend in...

We present a study of border surveillance systems for automatic threat estimation. The surveillance systems should allow border control operators to be triggered in time so that adequate responses are possible. Examples of threats are smuggling, possibly by using small vessels, cars or drones, and threats caused by unwanted persons (e.g....

In this paper the budget prognosis and the technical end of service life issues of the transport infrastructure replacement program of Rijkswaterstaat are introduced. Furthermore the technical information required to execute the program in a cost-effective way while keeping the infrastructure safe and available is discussed. For fatigue and...

This work gives an outlook on the potential of automated driving functions (ADFs) to reduce real-world CO2 and pollutant emissions for heavy-duty powertrains. Up to now, ADF research mainly focuses on increased traffic safety, driver comfort, and road capacity. Studies on emissions are lacking. By taking the driver out-of-the-loop, cycle-to...

Intelligent robotic autonomous systems (unmanned aerial/ground/surface/underwater vehicles) are attractive for military application to relieve humans from tedious or dangerous tasks. These systems require awareness of the environment and their own performance to reach a mission goal. This awareness enables them to adapt their operations to...

Accurate characterization and reliable monitoring of geological reservoirs often requires extensive geophysical measurements, in particular time-lapse (4D) seismic surveys. The conventional approach to reveal the time-lapse changes is to perform comprehensive seismic surveys with high repeatability. This approach is often not economically viable...

Infrared imaging of the sea surface is used for many purposes, such as remote sensing of large oceanographic structures, environmental monitoring, surveillance applications and platform signature research. Many of these studies rely on determining the contrast of a target feature with its background and therefore benefit from accurately...

Automated platooning of trucks has its beneficial effects on energy saving and traffic flow efficiency. The vehicles in a platoon, however, need to maintain an extremely short headway to achieve these goals, which will result in a heavily blocked front view for the driver in a following truck. Monitoring surrounding traffic environment and...

Managing the risk of unexpected events occurring during site operations and reducing operational costs are paramount to ensure the success of CO2 storage projects. For this purpose, operators need to design cost-effective monitoring systems to detect signals that can indicate whether or not the storage site behaves as expected and will continue...
