  1. 1. Sensor fusion for positioning of an autonomous vehicle

    University essay from KTH/Optimeringslära och systemteori

    Author : Fredrik Matsson; [2018]
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : The automotive industry has currently a high focus on automating road vehicles. Positive environmental impact can be achieved if carsharing becomes more common, aiding fewer cars on the roads. When the human factor in driving decreases, positive effects may be seen in traffic safety. READ MORE

  2. 2. Analysis of Potential in Asymmetric Braking for Autonomous Applications

    University essay from Chalmers tekniska högskola/Institutionen för tillämpad mekanik

    Author : Patrick Volz; [2018]
    Keywords : Motion control system; asymmetric braking; steer by braking; fallback level; active safety; commercial vehicles; control allocation;

    Abstract : Striving for automated commercial vehicles, the execution of steeringcommands has to be highly reliable in order to guarantee the manoeuvrabilityin any driving situation: In the event of the primary steering actuator’s failure,highly and fully automated vehicles have to provide their own fall-backperformance since the human driver is relieved of any driving responsibility.Consequently, an additional, independent fall-back level for this steeringactuator is essential, which undertakes the steering task and guarantees thedriving safety.

  3. 3. Structural robustness - FE methodology for analysing alternate load paths in buildings

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Byggnadsmekanik; Lunds universitet/Institutionen för byggvetenskaper

    Author : Axel Kjellman; [2017]
    Keywords : accidental action; robustness; finite element method; FE; dynamics; progressive collapse; redundancy; alternate path; notional removal; precast; Technology and Engineering;

    Abstract : Robust structures are necessary in order to avoid a progressive collapse if a local failure occurs, for instance, failure of a column. Robustness is achieved in structures by designing them for so-called accidental actions, such as an explosion or a vehicle impact. READ MORE

  4. 4. Investment in Value: A Copula Approach

    University essay from Handelshögskolan i Stockholm/Institutionen för finansiell ekonomi

    Author : Gustaf Soldan Patrikson; Victor Andrée; [2017]
    Keywords : factor investing; copula; tail dependence; diversification;

    Abstract : We evaluate how factor equity strategies are optimally combined, focusing on the role of the value factor (HML) against the background of a recent academic discussion about its potential redundancy, and the discovery of the investment (CMA) and profitability (RMW) factors. The analysis is centered around a conditional joint return distribution from a dynamic copula model, which allows for simulation with a time-varying and non-normal dependence structure. READ MORE

  5. 5. Efficient database management based on complex association rules

    University essay from Mittuniversitetet/Avdelningen för informationssystem och -teknologi

    Author : Heng Zhang; [2017]
    Keywords : Association rules; word segmentation;

    Abstract : The large amount of data accumulated by applications is stored in a database. Because of the large amount, name conflicts or missing values sometimes occur. This prevents certain types of analysis. READ MORE
