  1. 1. Multi-Criteria GIS modelling for optimal alignment of roadway by-passes in the Tlokweng Planning Area, Botswana

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi och ekosystemvetenskap

    Author : Milan Sekulic; [2019]
    Keywords : GIS; Multi-criteria analysis; DEFINITE; Sensitivity Analysis; Python; AHP; Least-cost path; Dijkstra’s algorithm; ArcPy; Geography; model; road alignment; Earth and Environmental Sciences;

    Abstract : To find the optimal by-pass road alignment in the Tlokweng Planning Area in Botswana, a multi-criteria spatial-based model is developed using the GIS-MCE approach. In respect to the environmental impact assessment (EIA) approach, in this research a set of criteria is classified under 3 themes – economic, environmental and social. READ MORE

  2. 2. A Company's Guide to Environmental Action

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Juridiska institutionen; Lunds universitet/Juridiska fakulteten

    Author : Alexandra Teorell; [2019]
    Keywords : EU law; Competition law; Environmental Law; Environmental Integration; Horizontal Agreements; Cartels; Law and Political Science;

    Abstract : While industries stand responsible for many of the emissions leading to global warming, tackling climate change seems to fall upon individuals and states. The limited course of corporate action may in many ways be traced back to competition law. READ MORE

  3. 3. Life Cycle Assessment of a Road Ferry

    University essay from KTH/Hållbar utveckling, miljövetenskap och teknik

    Author : Anna Ringström; [2019]
    Keywords : Life cycle assessment LCA ; Swedish Transport Administration STA ; STA Road Ferries; road ferry; environmental impact; environmental performance; ferry transport; Livscykelanalys LCA ; Trafikverket; Färjerederiet; vägfärja; miljöpåverkan; miljöprestanda; färjetransport;

    Abstract : On a national level, the Swedish Transport Administration (STA) constitute the responsibleauthority for national long-term infrastructure planning in Sweden and therefore has animportant role for limit the environmental load from domestic transport. STA Road Ferries isresponsible actor within STA, for national infrastructure planning connected to public marinetransport and has formulated the goal of net zero GHG emissions by year 2045 for the ferryfleet.

  4. 4. A Deep Learning Approach to Detection and Classification of Small Defects on Painted Surfaces : A Study Made on Volvo GTO, Umeå

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik; Umeå universitet/Institutionen för matematik och matematisk statistik

    Author : Johannes Rönnqvist; Johannes Sjölund; [2019]
    Keywords : Deep Learning; Image Recognition; Classification; Defect Detection; Automation; Neural Networks; Convolutional Neural Networks; Phase-measuring Deflectometry;

    Abstract : In this thesis we conclude that convolutional neural networks, together with phase-measuring deflectometry techniques, can be used to create models which can detect and classify defects on painted surfaces very well, even compared to experienced humans. Further, we show which preprocessing measures enhances the performance of the models. READ MORE
