  • Bhagwan, J; Wall, K (2007-05)
    The paper describes an alternative service delivery institutional concept, viz the franchising of local entrepreneurs, a PPP model especially suited to developing countries. The concept is being developed with the intention ...
  • Ittmann, HW (Operations Research Society of South Africa (ORSSA), 2011-09)
    The Constitution of South Africa requires that both national and local government elections be held every five years. These elections are not held simultaneously; currently, the local government elections are held two years ...
  • Paige-Green, P (ARRB Group Ltd, 2007-09)
    This paper discusses latest perspectives regarding the improvement of the performance of unsealed roads, particularly by reducing many of the current problems. Like many countries, South Africa has a preponderance of ...
  • Chakwizira, J; Nhemachena, C; Dube, S; Maponya, G (2010-10)
    This paper focuses on local resource based approach to maintaining and preserving rural local access roads assets using the Siyatentela project in Mpumalanga as a case study. The weaknesses of the exisiting rural local ...
  • Holtmann, B (CSIR, 2010-08-31)
    Crime, violence and the related state of unsafety are issues of deep concern for most South Africans. Criminal justice responses, despite heavy investment and efforts by the state to increase and improve capacity to ensure ...
  • James, S; Verrinder, RA; Sabatta, D; Shahdi, A (Robmech, 2012-09)
    This research addresses the Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) problem in the context of an underground mining environment. This would allow autonomous vehicle navigation in this hazardous setting. This environmental ...
  • Bhugwandin, Ashley (CSIR, 2017-10)
    This presentation focuses on localisation for industrial development, and is presented by Ashley Bhugwandin at The 6th CSIR Conference: Ideas that work for industrial development, 5-6 October 2017, CSIR International ...
  • Abu-Mahfouz, Adnan M (2012-04)
    This project presents an extension to the current version of ns-2, which enables a normal user, who has basic knowledge of ns-2, to simulate localization system within a wireless network. Moreover, this project would be ...
  • Bosscha, P (CSIR, 2015-10)
    South Africa faces a number of challenges in its manufacturing industry. Some of the competitive advantages that existed previously, like cheap electricity and low labour costs, have been eroded by rolling blackouts and ...
  • Brits, R; Engelbrecht, AP; Van den Bergh, F (Elsevier Science Inc, 2007)
    Many scientific and engineering applications require optimization methods to find more than one solution to multimodal optimization problems. This paper presents a new particle swarm optimization (PSO) technique to locate ...
  • Croucamp, PL; Rimer, S; Kruger, CP (IEEE, 2014-07)
    Theft of cables used for powering a locomotive not only stops the train from functioning but also paralyzes the signalling and monitoring system. This means that information on certain locomotive's cannot be passed onto ...
  • Rens, G; Lakemeyer, G; Meyer, T (IOS Press, 2012-08)
    We propose a non-standard modal logic for specifying agent domains where the agent’s actuators and sensors are noisy, causing uncertainty in action and perception. The logic is multi-modal, indexed with actions; the logic ...
  • Rens, G; Meyer, T; Ferrein, A; Lakemeyer, G (2011-07)
    The authors propose a novel modal logic for specifying agent domains where the agent’s actuators and sensors are noisy, causing uncertainty in action and perception. The logic draws both on POMDP theory and logics of action ...
  • Rens, G; Meyer, T; Lakemeyer, G (Springer, 2014-03)
    We present a logic inspired by partially observable Markov decision process (POMDP) theory for specifying agent domains where the agent's actuators and sensors are noisy (causing uncertainty). The language features modalities ...
  • Veerasamy, N; Grobler, MM (IGI Global, 2015)
    The merging of terrorism with the cyber domain introduces the potential for using computers and networked technologies in cyberspace to carry out extremist activities. Despite the current debate on whether cyberterrorism ...

  • Ittmann, HW (Cape Media, 2008-05)
    Urbanisation, coupled with sustained economic growth, implies that more and more goods and commodities need to be supplied to urban areas. This trend has been observed world-wide in the last number of years. Whereas ...
  • Duvenhage, B (2015-11)
    Turbulent pockets of air in the atmosphere blur and disrupt the Point Spread Function (PSF) of a surveillance system. The PSF peak is offset in location, changed in size and in short exposures (or mild conditions) noticeably ...
