  • Butgereit, L; Botha, RA (IIMC International Information Management Corporation, 2012-05)
    Dr Math is a mobile, online tutoring project which allows primary and secondary school pupils to contact tutors in mathematics using text based chat systems on their cell phones. The tutors use traditional Internet based ...
  • 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, ...
  • Van Heerden, CJ; De Wet, Febe; Davel, MH (PRASA, 2012-11)
    This paper reports on the automatic alignment of audiobooks in Afrikaans. An existing Afrikaans pronunciation dictionary and corpus of Afrikaans speech data are used to generate baseline acoustic models. The baseline system ...
  • McDonald, A (CSIR, 2015-10)
    South Africa is growing increasingly reliant on information and communications technology (ICT) to provide access to information and services. In making progress towards bridging the digital divide, our country now faces ...
  • Barnard, E; Davel, M (2006-11)
    The phonetic segmentation of recorded speech is a crucial factor in the quality of concatenative systems for speech synthesis. The authors describe a likelihood-based error detection process that can be used to flag possible ...
  • Badenhorst, JAC; Van Niekerk, DR; Barnard, E (2006-11)
    Improving the pronunciations of non-native language learners is an important task in a multilingual society. We focus on segmental aspects of pronunciation, and investigate the design of automated assistants that can be ...
  • Burke, I; Van Heerden, RP (Academic Conferences International Limited, 2016-03)
    Cyber awareness training has become a growing industry, with more and more organisations starting to focus on training personnel on how to behave in a secure manner when engaging in cyber operations. Cyber challenges place ...
  • Marais, EL (National Laboratory Association, 2006)
    At the end of 2005 it was decided that a number of measurements performed in the dc Low Frequency (dclf) Laboratory of the CSIR National Metrology Laboratory (CSIR NML) could benefit from automation. The measurements ...
  • Teleka, SR; Green, JJ; Brink, S (2011-07)
    In South African hard-rock mines, best practice dictates that the hanging-walls be inspected after blasting. This process is known as ‘making safe’ and although intended to save lives, it is laborious and subjective. ...
  • Heyes, AM (Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 1998-06)
    The failure of vehicle components is an area which is likely to affect all of us at one stage or another. In this paper the distribution of component failures is discussed, as well as the causes thereof. Four case studies ...
  • Berman, R; Benade, R; Rosman, Benjamin S (IEEE Xplore, 2015-11)
    In most countries throughout the world, heavy vehicle use on public roads are governed by prescriptive rules, typically by imposing stringent mass and dimension limits in an attempt to control vehicle safety. A recent ...
  • Olwal, TO; Van Wyk, BJ; Djouani, K; Hamam, Y; Siarry, P; Ntlatlapa, N (ADHOC-NOW Networks & Wireless 2008, 2008-09)
    Multi-Radio Multi-Channel (MRMC) systems are key to power control problems in WMNs. Previous studies have emphasized throughput maximization in such systems as the main design challenge and transmission power control treated ...

  • Holtzhausen S; Matsebe O; Tlale NS (2008-11)
    Autonomous under water vehicles 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 ...
  • Holtzhausen, S; Matsebe, O; Tlale, NS (2008)
    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. ...

  • Edwards, A (2012-09)
    This presentation outlines the importance of awareness training of managers at all levels and miners regarding the importance of hearing protection devices and adequate knowledge, motivation and training to prevent hearing loss.
  • Maina, JW; Ozawa, Y; Matsui, K (2009-06)
    The importance of accounting for material nonlinearity and anisotropic behaviour in order to improve the resilient models for pavement materials and numerical analysis is presented in this paper. Effects of material ...
  • Long, CS; Loveday, PW; Groenwold, AA (Elsevier, 2009-01)
    Two new solid-of-revolution axisymmetric finite elements, which account for hoop fibre rotations, are introduced. The first is based on an irreducible formulation, with only displacement and rotation fields assumed ...
  • Dudley, Angela L; Litvin, I; Roux, FS; Forbes, A (SAIP, 2012-07)
    This presentation analyses the azimuthal decomposition of optical modes. Decomposition of azimuthal modes need two steps, namely generation and decomposition. An azimuthally-varying phase (bounded by a ring-slit) placed ...
