European Community Measures to Reduce Nitrate Pollution (Civil Project)

Water protection proves to be a difficult task, whether it is dealt with through legislation or the implementation of a process to reduce further pollution. This study considers how the issue of water pollution from nitrates in agricultural practices has become better understood through the reforms of the Continue reading

Non-Linear Automatic Control of Autonomous Lawn Mower (Electrical Project)

This master thesis contains modeling and nonlinear automatic control of an autonomous lawn mower. The vehicle shall be able to follow a magnetic field loop buried in the lawn on an arbitrary distance, including Continue reading

Computationally Efficient Model for On-Board Simulation of Heavy Duty Diesel Engines (Mechanical/Electrical Project)

Simulating the translatory motion of a vehicle during a gear shift gives a good basis to evaluate performance and comfort of a Continue reading

Color Coded Depth Information in Medical Volume Rendering (Computer/Biomedical Project)

Contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance angiography (MRA) is used to obtain images showing the vascular system. To detect stenosis, which is narrowing of for example blood vessels, maximum intensity projection (MIP) is typically used. This technique often fails to demonstrate Continue reading

Clinical Assessment for Deep Vein Thrombosis Using Support Vector Machines: a Description of a Clinical Assessment and Compression Ultrasonography Journaling System for Deep Vein Thrombosis Using Support Vector Machines (Computer/Biomedical Project)

This project describes a journaling system for compression ultrasonography and a clinical assessment system for deep vein thrombosis (DVT). We evaluate Support Vector Machines (SVM) models with linear and radial basis function-kernels for predicting deep vein thrombosis, and for Continue reading

Load Management for a Telecom Charging System (Computer/Electronics Project)

There are a huge number of customers using Ericsson’s prepaid telecom charging system. This means that even the smallest optimization done in its management of load results in a big win when Continue reading
