  1. ALPINE RANDREGIONEN - Herausforderungen und Strategien für eine nachhaltige Raumentwicklung im Berggebiet 

    Keller, Samuel (2018)
    Die Berggebiete und weitere Randregionen der Schweiz sind seit Jahren von einem Bevölkerungsrückgang betroffen. Als Gegenstück zu den Zentren, wird der Begriff „Randregion“ mit einem Problembezug, wie schlechter Wirtschaftslage, Überalterung oder Mangel an qualifizierten Arbeitskräften, in Verbindung gebracht. In dieser Arbeit werden diese Räume genauer betrachtet und raumplanerische Perspektiven aufgezeigt. Die Arbeit macht durch ...

  2. Dynamic Range Low-power Wireless Protocols for Environmental Monitoring 

    Candel, Jonathan (2018)
    In the rapidly advancing world of wireless embedded systems, sensor networks (WSNs) are becoming increasingly more applicable for data gathering applications. When designed for such applications, the design goals are most often defined in terms of communication reliability, flexible data-rates, and network life-time. One of the application domains that will benefit from improvement in these metrics, is the area of environmental ...

  3. Entwicklungsstrategie zu öffentlichen Bauten und Anlagen – Förderung der Innenentwicklung durch die Gemeinden 

    Ott, René (2018)
    Die Herausforderungen und Ansprüche an eine Innenentwicklung erfordern von allen raumrelevanten Akteuren ein angepasstes Rollenverständnis und adaptierte Vorgehensweisen. Innenentwicklungen sollen am richtigen Ort erfolgen, innerhalb der Siedlung und gut durch den öffentlichen Verkehr erschlossen. Am richtigen Ort sind jedoch oft komplexe Situationen anzutreffen. Im Gegensatz zur Siedlungsentwicklung am Rand, kann die Arbeit der ...

  4. Beitrag der bestehenden Einfamilienhausquartiere zur Innenentwicklung 

    Föhn, Remo (2018)
    Die Strategie der Siedlungsentwicklung nach innen, kurz Innenentwicklung, ist spätestens seit dem Inkrafttreten des revidierten Raumplanungsgesetzes 2014 zentraler Bestandteil der räumlichen Entwicklungsstrategie der Schweiz. Wegen ihrer engmaschigen Grundstücksstruk-turen, der vielen nicht professionellen Grundeigentümer und der ausgeprägten emotionalen Bindung liegen Einfamilienhausquartiere nicht im Fokus der Nachverdichtung. Der Bestand ...

  5. Die Zukunft der Einkaufszentren – Chancen und Herausforderungen für die Raumentwicklung 

    Zelger, Isabel (2018)
    Die Einkaufszentren entstanden im Zuge der Massenmotorisierung und der modernen Konsumgesellschaft in den 1950er Jahren in den USA. Das erste Einkaufszentrum der Schweiz wurde 1970 in Spreitenbach im Kanton Aargau gebaut. Eine Vielzahl an Einkaufszentren eröffnete in den folgenden Jahrzehnten, sich am entstehenden Nationalstrassennetz orientierend, ihre Tore. Diese Entwicklung hatte eine grosse Auswirkung auf die Siedlungsstruktur und ...

  6. Flexible parking infrastructures: The use of Real Option to account for future mobility uncertainty 

    Elvarsson, Arnór Bragi (2018)
    Design of embedded parking infrastructures assumes the parking demand to be stable over the infrastructure’s life-time. However, the looming mobility trend shift towards shared automated vehicles (AVs) make future parking needs highly uncertain and parking demand could thus disappear over an infrastructure’s life-time. A method is needed to optimize the parking design considering uncertainty of future demand so its use can be transitioned ...

  7. 36 Component Seismic Data: Investigating Translational and Rotational Components in Exploration Seismology 

    Häusler, Mauro (2016)
    In conventional multicomponent seismic exploration, the wavefield is recorded by measuring translational motions in three directions using three-component sensors. A novel approach in land seismic acquisition is to additionally record the rotational components of the wavefield around the various Cartesian axes and to combine them with translational measurements. Additional rotational measurements provide the opportunity to locally extract ...

  8. Multiple Query Execution through SQL Rewriting 

    Wolf, Jan (2017)
    Current database systems typically process queries in a query-at-a-time fashion without considering common subexpressions that can be shared. Such a design leads to suboptimal processing, i.e., lower throughput, higher latency, and poor scalability. Taking advantage of sharing common subexpressions in batches or streams of concurrent queries is one way to mitigate those problems. Another option is to implement new shared operators in ...

  9. Traffic Interaction with Platoon (TRIP): safe gap expansion and reduction between vehicles in a platoon 

    Stroppa, Luca (2018)
    In this thesis, we study the interaction of a single vehicle with a platoon. More specifically, we consider the case in which the gap between two vehicles in the platoon has to be expanded and then reduced. This facilitates a single vehicle to change lanes, enter into the expanded gap, and leave after a while. As a first step, we review the literature of platoon formation, tracking of a reference velocity as well as of a spacing policy. ...

  10. Non-linear Control of Quad-copters via Approximate Dynamic Programming 

    Romero Aguilar, Ángel (2018)
    Approximate Dynamic Programming has proven to be successful in many discrete state applications such as playing the games of Tetris or chess. However, not so many applications involving continuous state space dynamics have been proposed. In this thesis we study the possibilities of applying these same techniques to the continuous, non-linear, high dimensional dynamics of a quad-rotor vehicle, by using the Linear Programming approach to ...

  12. Creating a Flexible Middleware for Low-Power Flooding Protocols 

    Bächli, Jonas (2018)
    Low-power wireless networks allow for easy-deployment and low-maintenance solutions for sensor applications. Glossy, an often used communication primitive to build such low-power wireless networks, is a flooding protocol providing high reliability and resilience. Even though the list of protocols building on top of Glossy is extensive, the current approach to implement Glossy-based protocols could be significantly improved by separating ...

  14. People's Perception of Urban and Architectural Features 

    Schaeben, Charlotte (2017)
    By now, 54 percent of the world’s population lives in urban areas,1 turning architecture and urban settings into omnipresent environments for most of us in daily life. The city’s configuration enables to read its differing neighbourhoods, hierarchies of spaces and infrastructures, as well as notions of privacy. To quantify the impact of architecture and urban planning on people’s well-being, one has to break these subjects down ...

  15. PySpark at Bare-Metal Speed 

    Akhadov, Sabir (2017)
    Data analytics has become the driving force for many industries and scientific research. More and more decisions are maid based on statistical analysis of large datasets and machine learning. Big data data processing frameworks, such as Apache Spark, provide an easy-to-use out-of-the-box solution, scalable to large machine clusters. Python is the most widespread programming language in the data science field due to its simplicity and the ...
