  • Dorasamy, K; Webb, L; Tapamo, J; Khanyile, NP (IEEE Xplore, 2015-07)
    The use of directional patterns has recently received more attention in fingerprint classification. It provides a global representation of a fingerprint, by dividing it into homogeneous orientation partitions. With this ...
  • Shabalala, MB; Moabalobelo, T; Van der Merwe, T (ICCWS, 2015-03)
    As cybercrime is on the rise, individuals would like to rest assured that their authentication information cannot be stolen, and then used to gain access to their privileged information. Smart cards can and have played a ...
  • Baruni, Kedimotse P; Helberg, A; Nair, Kishor K (IEEE, 2016-12)
    Fingerprint Match-on-Card (MoC) offers the highest degree of privacy and security to cardholders as the fingerprint never leaves the secure environment of a smart card. The level of security of a biometric system is evaluated ...
  • Moolla, Y; Singh, A; Saith, E; Akhoury, S (Springer, 2015-12)
    Fingerprint recognition is an important security technique with a steadily growing usage for the identification and verification of individuals. However, current fingerprint acquisition systems have certain disadvantages, ...
  • Darlow, Luke Nicholas; Rosman, Benjamin S (2017-10)
    The high variability of fingerprint data (owing to, e.g., differences in quality, moisture conditions, and scanners) makes the task of minutiae extraction challenging, particularly when approached from a stance that relies ...
  • Msiza, IS; Leke-Betechuoh, B; Nelwamondo, FV; Msimang, N (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (IEEE), 2009-10)
    The problem of Automatic Fingerprint Pattern Classification (AFPC) has been studied by many fingerprint biometric practitioners. It is an important concept because, in instances where a relatively large database is being ...
  • Mngenge, NA; Nelufule, NN; Nelwamondo, FV; Msimang, M (IEEE Xplore, 2012-11)
    Automatic Fingerprint Recognition Systems (AFRSs) rely on minutiae position and orientation within the fingerprint image for matching. Minutiae information is highly accurate provided that the fingerprint image matched is ...
  • Molale, P; Twala, B; Seeletse, S (South African Statistical Association for 2011, 2011-11)
    In this study, the application of classifiers to problems in fingerprint prediction is investigated. Six supervised learning and two statistical fingerprint classification methods (classifiers) are considered: linear ...
  • Msiza, IS; Leke-Betechuoh, B; Malumedzha, T (IEEE, 2011-02)
    Fingerprint re-alignment is an important aspect in the subject of fingerprint biometrics because a fingerprint that has been rotated, voluntarily or involuntarily, can have negative impact on the functionality of an automated ...
  • Msiza, IS; Mathekga, ME; Nelwamondo, FV; Marwala, T (ICIC International, 2011-09)
    Fingerprint image segmentation plays an important role in any fingerprint image analysis implementation and it should, ideally, be executed during the initial stages of a fingerprint manipulation process. After careful ...
  • Marwala, T; Sibisi, S (American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, 2005-01)
    Finite element (FE) models are widely used to predict the dynamic characteristics of aerospace structures. These models often give results that differ from measured results and therefore need to be updated to match measured ...
  • Botha, N; Kok, S; Inglis, HM (SAAM, 2012-12)
    Corneal biomechanical properties are an important element in the study of corneal biomechanics. There are currently two techniques to obtain these properties; an inflation test and the strip extensiometry test. As the ...
  • Mc Dougall, I (2007)
    Finite element models were generated of two submerged arc furnaces of different geometries. A 48MW circular furnace and a 68MW 6-in-line rectangular furnace were studied. The electrodes, raw material, slag and molten metal ...
  • Kok, S; van Rensburg, JGJ (CSIR, 2010-09-01)
    In anthropology, the finite element method (FEM) is frequently applied to determine the validity of hypotheses concerning the adaptation of biological form to suit functionality. Different geometries are analysed, and based ...
  • Ritchie, Michaela C; Lück-Vogel, Melanie; Debba, Pebba; Goodall, V (2017-05)
    Medium spatial resolution sensors (10-30 m pixel size) have been used for land cover classification and monitoring for decades. However, these sensors do not have the required resolution to detect coastal specific land ...
  • Walwyn, D (Elsevier Science Ltd, 2007)
    The sudden and dramatic growth of the mobile phone manufacturing sector in Finland is an interesting case study for science and technology (S&T) policy analysts. Mostly on account of the rapidity of this growth against a ...
  • Mcferren, GA; Roos, S; Terhorst, AL (2006)
    AFIS (Advanced Fire Information System) is a joint initiative between CSIR and Eskom, the South African electricity utility. AFIS infers fire occurrences from processed remotely sensed data and triggers alarms to Eskom ...
  • Butgereit, L; Moonsamy, S; Thomson, T; Van Zyl, T; McFerren, G (2014-11)
    Humanity has had a long historical relationship with fire. According to anthropologists, the first humanoid species learned to use and control fire approximately two million years ago. Using fire and controlling fire, ...
  • Van Wilgen, BW; Biggs, H; O'Regan, SP; Mare, N (Bureau Scientific Publications, 2000-04)
    This paper analyses the fire history of the Kruger National Park (1.9 million ha), South Africa, for different periods in the park's history, where fire protection was followed by prescribed burning and then a 'natural' ...
  • Schrige, GU; Penderis, AH (National Scientific Programmes Unit: CSIR, 1978-10)
    References to 258 publications are presented together with summaries, keyword listings and a keyword index. This bibliography forms part of the South African contribution to the SCOPE project "The ecological effects of ...
