  • Kumile, CM; Tlale, NS; Bright, G (South African Institite of Mechanical Engineering, 2008-07)
    Manufacturing enterprises are facing critical challenges to reconstruct themselves in order to survive in a more competitive environmnet. Thier sucess depends on thier ability to adopt state-of-the-art manufacturing ...
  • Davrajh, S; Naidoo, T; Bright, G; Tlale, NS; Kumile, CM (2008)
    Mass produced custom parts require inspection routines that can facilitate variations in product parameters such as dimensions, tolerances, and throughputs. Quality control and inspection of these parts, and part families, ...
  • Holtzhausen, S; Matsebe, O; Tlale, NS; Bright, G (2008-11)
    AUVs are ideal platforms for search and rescue operations. They can also be used for inspection of underwater terrains. These vehicles need to be autonomous and robust to cope with unpredictable current and high pressures. ...
  • Pancham, Ardhisha; Withey, Dan; Bright, G (IEEE, 2016-10)
    The use of low-cost, camera sensors for Simultaneous Localization And Mapping and Moving Object Tracking (SLAMMOT) is a developing research area. Image features can be static or dynamic, sparse or dense, and can appear or ...
  • Xing, B; Gao, W; Tlale, NS; Bright, G (IESM 2007, 2007-05)
    Manufacturing companies are faced with the challenge of unpredictable, high frequency market changes in both local and international markets. There is a need for greater, more effective responsiveness by manufacturers to ...
  • De Villiers, M; Bright, G (2010-07)
    This paper presents the development of a control model for Mecanum wheels. Available control models used in robotics are based on a simplification which defines the contact point of the wheel on the ground as the point in ...
  • Tlale, NS; Bright, G (2006-07)
    Practical wall climbing robots that are used for applications requiring them to be fitted with task specific tools should be large enough to carry the additional tool payload. As size of robot is increased, inflexible body ...
  • Pancham, A; Tlale, N; Bright, G (RobMech 2011, 2011-11)
    Simultaneous Localization And Mapping (SLAM) allows a mobile robot to be completely autonomous in an unknown environment and perform its tasks. The robot is able to create a map of its environment and at the same time ...
  • Pancham, A; Tlale, N; Bright, G (2012-10)
    In order for mobile robots to operate in dynamic or real world environments they must be able to localise themselves while building a map of the environment, and detect and track moving objects. This work involves the ...
  • Xing, B; Tlale, NS; Bright, G (IEEE, 2008-10)
    The paper deals with the integration of mechanical and control aspects involved in the design of a novel 4-DOF reconfigurable machining machine (RMM). Its modular mechanical structure and control system are conceived in ...
  • Shaik, AA; Bright, G; Xu, WL (2007-01)
    Flex-Picker robots, as well as many automated multi-axis machines, operate under overall "open loop" control. The exact position in space of the end effecter or tool head is not sensed directly. The software controlling ...
  • Kumile, CM; Tlale, NS; Bright, G (2007-05)
    Changing manufacturing environment is characterised by aggressive competition on a global scale and rapid changes in process technology requires to create manufacturing systems that are be able to quickly adapt to new ...
  • Walker, A; Butler, L; Bright, G; Tlale, NS; Kumile, C (2008)
    Industrial manufacturing systems achieve production stability due to near constant production processes e.g. mass production. Passive methods such as production flow analysis can produce plant layouts which optimise material ...
  • Xing, B; Bright, G; Tlale, NS (2007-01)
    Manufacturing companies are faced with the challenge of unpredictable, high frequency market changes in both local and international markets. There is a need for greater, more effective responsiveness by manufacturers to ...
  • Padayachee, J; Bright, G; Masekamela, I (South African Institute of Industrial Engineering, 2009-11)
    The reconfigurable manufacturing system (RMS) paradigm encapsulates methodologies that enable manufacturing systems to cope effectively with market and product changes. This research presents the design and evaluation of ...
  • Padayachee, J; Masekamela, I; Bright, G; Tlale, NS; Kumile, CM (2008)
    The Reconfigurable Manufacturing System (RMS) paradigm has been formulated to encapsulate methodologies that enable manufacturing systems to display a variability of system functionality and capacity in response to constantly ...
  • Shaik, AA; Tlale, NS; Bright, G (Inderscience, 2012-05)
    Industrial robot arms are an essential part of automated manufacturing. They automate tasks such as component assembly, welding, light machining and spray painting due to their repeatability, speed and accuracy. The serial ...
  • Namoshe, M; Tlale, NS; Kumile, CM; Bright, G (Massey University, 2008-12)
    Despite advances in recent years, autonomous multi-robot systems remain classed as complex systems, because control and coordination of these systems remain a challenging task. Autonomous mobile robot houses heterogeneous ...
  • Thorogood, R; Bright, G; Nordengen, Paul A; Lyne, P (2009-07)
    In South Africa, heavy vehicles are currently designed according to stringent prescriptive standards designed and enforced by the national Department of Transport (DoT); these standards are regulated in terms of mass, ...
  • Xing, B; Bright, G; Tlale, NS; Potgieter, J (2006-07)
    Manufacturing companies are facing three challenges: low cost production of product, high quality standard and rapid responsiveness to customer requirements. These three goals are equally important for the manufacturing ...
