  • 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 ...
  • 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)
    Gamification in education refers to the application of game dynamics, mechanics into the teaching and learning engagement. This paper makes a case for viewing the objective of Educational Gamification as a Gameful Educational ...
  • Estuarine and Coastal Research Unit, ECRU (CSIR, National Research Institute for Oceanology, 1981-04)
    The Gamtoos has the fourth largest catchment of all the Cape rivers, with an area of 34 438 km2 which extends right up into the Great Karoo. Two large tributaries drain the eastern extremity of the Nuweveld Mountain range ...
  • Linganiso, EC; Rodrigues, R; Mhlanga, SD; Mwakikunga, BW; Coville, NJ; Hümmelgen, IA (Elsevier, 2013-12)
    The wide band-gap semiconductor material gallium nitride was synthesized using a one step microwave-assisted solution phase technique. The synthesized GaN nanocrystals showed an intense ultraviolet-blue emission typical ...
  • Pityana, S; Mahamood, RM; Akinlabi, ET; Shukla, M (IMECS 2013, 2013-03)
    Tracks of Ti6Al4V powder were deposited on Ti6Al4V substrate using Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) process, an Additive Manufacturing (AM) manufacturing technology, at a laser power and scanning speed maintained at 1.8 kW and ...
  • Mafusire, C; Forbes, A; Snedden, Glen C; Mahlase, ACK; Michaelis, MM; Mathuthu, M (2006-07)
    When a heated pipe is rotated, the dynamics of the gas inside exhibit properties reminiscent of a solid-state positive lens. The properties are a result of a parabolic distribution of refractive index in the pipe which is ...
  • Landman, K (2000-08)
    In many instances the urban future is shaped by specific and powerful ideas. “Gated communities” is one such an idea, which has the potential to radically transform the urban environment in the 21st century. As a strong ...
  • Spocter, M (Sun Media, 2012-03)
    Gated developments, more commonly known as gated communities, have become a feature of urban living throughout the world. Gated developments in South African cities are a ubiquitous feature of the contemporary urban landscape ...
  • Litvin, IA; Forbes, A (Optical Society of America, 2009-10)
    The authors outline a resonator design that allows for the selection of a Gaussian mode by diffractive optical elements. This is made possible by the metamorphosis of a Gaussian beam into a flat-top beam during propagation ...
  • Padayachi, YR; Thambiran, Tirusha (2012-10)
    Road transport is considered to be a growing source of atmospheric emissions in African countries. In South Africa, competition in the business sector, reduction in rail usage, deregulation of freight transportation and a ...
