Research and development in ocean-wave energy in Norway
(Conference object, 1993)
The Underwater Swimming Manipulator - A Bio-Inspired AUV
(Chapter; Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2016)
Autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) have been used for environmental mapping and surveys of various kinds for some time. More recently, the AUVs have entered the domain of the remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) to tackle ...
Tourist Without a Cause
(Chapter; Conference object, 2010)
Location-based recommender systems in the tourist domain are increasingly becoming more and morepopular. However, these systems typically suffer from two problems: Not having sufficient information aboutthe user results ...
A hybrid approach to underwater docking of AUVs with cross-current
(Conference object; Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2016)
This paper proposes a docking maneuver for an underactuated autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) to dock into a funnel shaped docking station. The novelty of the proposed approach is enabling an underactuated AUV that is ...
A systems approach to extended producer responsibility: Economic efficiency and environmental effectiveness for packaging in plastic industry in Norway
(Conference object, 1998)
This paper will, through a theoretical discussion of efficiency and effectiveness, present a model for a recovery system. The plastic packaging recovery system in Norway is described, and despite the lack of empirical data, ...
Interactive product development in recycling systems – A case study of the Norwegian deposit system for PET bottles
(Conference object, 2003)
In this paper we have applied the interactive product development approach in combination with the life cycle system approach and put up a framework to evaluate and understand eco-efficiency development of production- and ...
Supervisory Control of Line Breakage for Thruster-Assisted Position Mooring System
(Chapter; Conference object; Peer reviewed, 2015)
Thruster-assisted position mooring (TAPM) is an energy-efficient and reliable stationkeeping method for deep water structures. Mooring line breakage can significantly influence the control system, and ultimately reduce ...
A Tension-based Position Estimation Approach for Moored Marine Vessels
(10th IFAC Conference on Manoeuvring and Control of Marine Craft;MCMC 2015, Conference object; Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2015)
This paper presents a novel idea on a tension-based localization approach as a redundancy measure to handle the situation when the position reference (posref) signals are not available or significant GNSS drifts occur, ...
Using LCA and Network Theory as a basis for eco-efficiency improvements in Norwegian plastic packaging recycling
(Conference object, 2002)
Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) is to a wide extent applied to evaluate the environmental performance of recycling. However, LCA is not sufficient as stand-alone tool for decision-making regarding recycling since decisive ...
Revealing the Dark Side of WebRTC Statistics Collected by Google Chrome
(Chapter; Conference object, 2016)
Google Chrome provides a built-in tool to collectreal-time session-related performance statistics of Web-basedReal-Time Communication (WebRTC). Although the Chromestatistics have a number of ...
