Vehicles with internal combustion engines waste a lot of energy during conventional braking. Therefore, energy recovery systems are needed to reduce the fuel consumption of these vehicles and improve sustianability. Here, a hydraulic energy storage system for such recuperation purposes in vehicles is considered. The complex processes inside such a...

The lack of therapy compliance (adherence) is an already well-studied phenomenon in the health sector. It is known that numerous factors can influence regular medication intake. A promising approach for increasing therapy compliance are patient-related factors. In order to increase motivation, Gamification-based approaches have already been selecti...
Hidden Markov Models (HMMs) are widely used in speech and handwriting recognition, behavior prediction in traffic, time series analysis, biostatistics, image and signal processing, and many other fields. For some applications in those real world problems, a-priori knowledge about the structure of the HMM is available. For example the shape of the s...

The availability of a thermodynamic system out of equilibrium with its environment describes its ability to perform work in a reversible process which brings it to equilibrium with this environment. Processes in finite time can usually not be performed reversibly thus leading to unavoidable losses. In order to account for these losses the concept o...
Introduction: Positive safety effects of advanced driver assistance systems can only become effective if drivers accept and use these systems. Early detection of driver's intention would allow for selective system activation and therefore reduce false alarms. Method: This driving simulator study aims at exploring early predictors of lane changes...
