    The construction of homes provides social and economic benefits to society, but contributes significantly to environmental degradation. The focus of both international and South African efforts to improve the environmental ...
  • Fleming, GJ; Van der Merwe, Martina R; Mcferren, GA (Elsevier Science Ltd, 2007)
    Cholera (Vibrio cholerae) is endemic in southern Africa and frequently breaks out in epidemics along the eastern seaboard. Extensive resources are directed at combating cholera yet it remains a significant problem. Limited ...
  • Mkuzangwe, Nenekazi NP; Nelwamondo, Fulufhelo V (Springer, 2017-04)
    Fuzzy logic is one of the powerful tools for reasoning under uncertainty and since uncertainty is an intrinsic characteristic of intrusion analysis, Fuzzy logic is therefore an appropriate tool to use to analyze intrusions ...
  • Nyirenda, CN; Dawoud, DS (IEEE, 2007-09)
    In 802.11 Wireless Local Area Networks, the wired and the wireless interfaces of the Access Point are characterized by the disparity in channel capacity. This presents a significant bottleneck for traffic flowing from the ...
  • Day, J; Siegfried, WR; Louw, GN; Jarman, ML (National Scientific Programmes Unit: CSIR, 1979-12)
    Current knowledge and thinking on the ecology of the Mediterranean type sclerophyll shrublands and heath lands of the southern and south-western Cape is reviewed in 13 concise syntheses. The Fynbos Biome is defined and ...
  • Deacon, HJ; Hendey, QB; Lambrechts, JJN (National Scientific Programmes Unit: CSIR, 1983-12)
    Current knowledge of aspects of the geology, soils and palaeontology relevant to the study of the palaeoecology of the fynbos region, the southern margin of the African continent, is surveyed in nine essays and three ...
  • Kleinhans, A; Rosman, Benjamin S; Michalik, M; Tripp, B; Detry, R (ICRA 2015, 2015-05)
    Autonomous grasping is a problem that receives continuous attention from our community because it is both key to many applications, and difficult to solve. The complexity of robot grasping is counter-intuitive. For us ...
  • Boesack, CD; Marwal, T; Nelwamondo, FV (IEEE, 2011-10)
    This paper presents a GA-Fuzzy Automatic Generation Controller for large interconnected power systems. The design of Fuzzy Logic Controllers by means of expert knowledge have typically been the traditional design norm, ...
  • Burke, Michael G; Brink, W (2011-08)
    This paper presents a gain-scheduling controller for a human-following robot. Typical controllers use either a point-to-point approach where the relative orientation between human and platform is uncontrolled, or a ...
  • Malema, Shirley; Akebe Abia, LK; Mwenge Kahinda, Jean-Marc; Ubomba-Jaswa, Eunice (Nova Science Publishers, 2016-01)
    In South Africa, rural and peri-urban communities are usually faced with shortage of water. Rainwater harvesting if correctly implemented has the potential to reduce water scarcity as well as to supplement municipal water ...
  • Smith, Andrew C (2007-04)
    The authors propose a system designed for pre-school children that offers an alternative introduction to the world of Information and Communication Technologies (ICT), specifically computer programming. Illiterate children ...
  • Botha, Adèle; Herselman, M; Ford, M (IST-Africa 2014, 2014-05)
