  • Stewart, TC; DeWolf, T; Kleinhans, A; Eliasmith, C (Frontiers, 2015-11)
    Evaluating the effectiveness and performance of neuromorphic hardware is difficult. It is even more difficult when the task of interest is a closed-loop task; that is, a task where the output from the neuromorphic hardware ...
  • Nkosi, MT; Mekuria, F (IEEE, 2010-11)
    Mobile devices are being considered as service platforms for mobile health information delivery, access and communication. However mobiles face challenges with regard to delivering secure multimedia based health services ...
  • Smith, Andrew C (IEEE Xplore, 2014-05)
    Clustering is the act of grouping items that belong together. In this paper we explore clustering as a means to construct tangible program logic, and specifically as a means to use multiple tangible objects collectively ...
  • Joubert, D (2010-07)
    SLAM, or simultaneous localization and mapping, is a key component in the development of truly independent robots. Vision-based SLAM utilising stereo vision is a promising approach to SLAM but it is computationally expensive ...
  • Dudeni-Tlhone, N; Holloway, Jennifer P; Khuluse, S; Koen, Renée (2013-11)
    This study looked at a specific application of cluster analysis using the recently released population census 2011 data for the Ekurhuleni Metro in the Gauteng Province of South Africa. The main focus of the clustering was ...
  • Teleka, R; Green, J; Dickens, J (2013-09)
    The South African mining industry is plagued by accidents ranging from vehicle incidents to roof/rock falls. In the attempt to carry out its mandate of improving the quality of life of South African citizens, the Council ...
  • North, BC; Engelbrecht, AD; Hadley, TD (2005-11)
    It is generally accepted that global warming is a reality, and that anthropogenic CO2 emissions are the cause of the warming. One method to reduce the effective CO2 release from boilers is to replace some of the coal with ...
  • Strydom, W; Godfrey, Linda K (CSIR, 2015-09)
    For as long as South Africa continues to generate “waste”, that waste has value, and while there are businesses prepared to buy the waste, we will continue to find formal and informal collectors of recyclables. “There will ...
  • SANCOR (National Scientific Programmes Unit: CSIR, 1978-01)
    With the ever-increasing demands on the resources of our planet, man's attention during recent years has turned more and more to the resources of the ocean and it is being increasingly recognised that the proper exploitation ...
  • Grootboom, AW; Mkhonza, NL; Mbambo, Z; O'Kennedy, MM; Da Silva, LS; Taylor, J; Taylor, JRN; Chikwamba, Rachel K; Mehlo, L (Springer link, 2014-01)
    Co-suppressing major kafirin sub-classes is fundamental to improved protein digestibility and nutritional value of sorghum. The improvement is linked to an irregularly invaginated phenotype of protein bodies.
  • Hietkamp, S (2006-06)
    The highly concentrated CO2 streams currently produced at Sasol are well suited for CO2 sequestration without further processing except for pressurising. The potential in South Africa for biological sequestration is limited ...
  • York, G; Canbulat, I; Jack, BW (2000-03)
    Examination of collapsed pillar cases outside of the empirical limits of Salamon and Munro’s in situ database has highlighted the need for additional parameters to be considered in the design of coal pillars. These include ...
  • Fourie, M; van Rensburg, JJ (Sasol Technology & Sasol Mining, 2005-08)
    This presentation focuses on setting of tools to facilitate optimisation and integration of coal value chain. It also focuses on maximising coal to gas yield and supply optimum coal quality
  • Francis, J; Celliers, Louis; Rosendo, S (United Nations Environment Programme ; Nairobi Convention Secretariat, 2015)
    Most, if not all, of the recommendations contained in this State of the Coast Report, relies on two cross-cutting and fundamental qualities. Firstly, managers, decision- and policy-makers and the various end-users have ...
  • Tinley, KL (National Scientific Programmes Unit: CSIR, 1985)
    A synthesis is presented on the ecology of South African coastal dune ecosystems, which comprise about 80% of South Africa's 3 000 km shoreline. A detailed description of the extent, structure and functioning of these ...
  • Theron, A; Rautenbach, C; Maherry, A; Rossouw, M (CSIR, 2015-04-22)
    The study for the CSIR & DEA – Phases 1 & 2 Research Study: South African Coastal Vulnerability Assessment present on the Coastal flooding levels in South Africa.
  • Lück-Vogel, Melanie (2012-10)
    The CSIR’s coastal systems research group conducts trans-disciplinary research from basic research up to the provision of policies and technical guidelines to prepare the coastal communities in South Africa and beyond ...
  • Kloke, KH; Joubert, J; Odendaal, JW (IEEE Xplore, 2015-08)
    Conventional rectangular waveguides are commonly used for high power and other microwave and millimeter wave applications. Their use at lower frequencies has been limited by their bulky nature. A new type of compact waveguide ...
  • Kleynhans, N; Hartman, W; Van Niekerk, D; Van Heerden, C; Schwartz, R; Tsakalidis, S; Davel, M (Elsevier, online, 2016-05)
