Abstract Although road-based freight transport has large external costs, it currently dominates the hinterland cargo transport sector in Europe. An increase of the automation levels of inland cargo vessels could advance their competitiveness, hence unlocking more sustainable inland cargo transport. Moreover, these improvements could pave the way for a potential future paradigm shift towards unmanned inland cargo vessels. Therefore, this study investigates the design of an experimental platform i...

The European Watertruck + project introduced a new fleet of self-propelled inland cargo barges to the European waters, in order to induce more sustainable freight transport in the European hinterland. An augmentation of the automation level of this fleet could further advance their competitiveness and potentially pave the way for unmanned inland cargo vessels. The motion control of such a vessel forms a key component in this envisaged automation chain and benefits from the knowledge of the capab...

Indoor positioning with visible light has become increasingly important in recent years. Usually, light sources are modulated at high speeds in order to wirelessly transmit data from the fixtures to a receiver. The accuracy of such systems can range from a few decimeters to a few centimeters. However, additional modulation hardware is required for every light source, thereby increasing cost and system complexity. This paper investigates the use of unmodulated light for indoor positioning. Contra...

Localization based on visible light is a novel technique for indoor positioning that provides a number of advantages over traditional radio frequency based approaches. An important step in the deployment of visible light positioning systems is the calibration procedure, during which environmental parameters such as the positions of light sources are determined. This work presents a proof-of-concept approach to obtain these parameters in an efficient manner by using a mobile robot. This robot bui...

This study discusses the experimental identification of the dynamic characteristics for an operational 1/25 scale model of the Watertruck+ self-propelling barge of CEMT class I. Parameters such as flow rate, acceleration, thrust and speed-dependent resistance forces in the longitudinal direction are determined. The operational scale model discussed in this paper includes a hull with length 1.54 m, width of 0.2 m and height of 0.2 m. All experiments are performed at an indoor pool to reduce envir...

Teaching robotics to engineering students can be a challenging endeavor. In order to provide hands-on experiences, physical robot platforms are required. Previously, obtaining these platforms could be expensive, and required a lot of technical expertise from teaching staff. However, more recent models address these issues, therefore providing more opportunities for hands-on sessions. In this paper, we describe how we used the Turtlebot 3 mobile robot in master courses at KU Leuven. We provide an...

With the rise of solid state lighting, wireless positioning based on visible light is becoming more appealing. However, current visible light positioning systems require additional hardware at the transmitter end in order to modulate the light intensity. A receiver demultiplexes the combined signal from multiple sources into its components, which are then used by the positioning algorithm. This paper investigates the possibility of using unmodulated visible light for mobile robot positioning. Le...
