  • Butgereit, LL; Botha, Adèle (IST-Africa 2009 Conference Proceedings, 2009-05)
    With the push to better school results in mathematics, science, and technology related subjects, often language education is moved into the background. In Africa, however, education is often not in the mother tongue of the ...
  • Egan, TJ; Chen, JY-J; De Villiers, KA; Mabotha, TE; Naidoo, KJ; Ncokazi, KK; Langford, SJ; McNaughton, D; Pandiancherri, S; Wood, BR (Elsevier B.V, 2006-09)
    Several blood-feeding organisms, including the malaria parasite detoxify haem released from host haemoglobin by conversion to the insoluble crystalline ferriprotoporphyrin IX dimer known as haemozoin. To date the mechanism ...
  • Louw, JA; Davel, M (2006-11)
    Diphone-based speech synthesis has been researched for many years, and some of the most successful concatenative synthesis systems employ diphones. Such systems can produce very intelligible synthetic speech, but tend not ...
  • Luhandjula, T; Djouani, K; Hamam, Y; Van Wyk, BJ; Williams, Q (2010-05)
    This paper describes an algorithm for a visual human-machine interface that infers a person’s intention from the motion of the hand. Work in progress shows a proof of concept tested on static images. The context for which ...
  • Smith, Adrew C (IST-Africa 2009 Conference Proceedings, 2009-05)
    Novice programmers on the fringe of mainstream computer programming face a number of obstacles such as computer literacy and mastering the programming language syntax. Two programming environments currently available are ...
  • Meyer, C; Du Plessis, JJL; Oberholzer, JW (1996-04)
    An urgent need has been identified by the coal mining industry, the department of Mineral and energy affairs, and the unions regarding information to enable mine operators to address the dust problem. This handbook flows ...
  • Smith, Andrew C (2008-06)
    The author presents two technology-augmented physical materials that illiterate coders can sculpt for use as physical syntax elements in a tangible early-programming learning environment. Two physical coding sequences are ...
  • Dlodlo, N; Tolmay, JP; Mvelase, P (2012-03)
    This research is about encouraging learners to participate in the management of their schools through technology and a constructivist approach. Learners populate a database with photos on the state of the school infrastructure, ...
  • Coetzee, L; Butgereit, L; Smith, Andrew C (2012-06)
    In a future world where everything is connected to everything (the so-called Internet of Things), new possibilities of creating novel solutions are on the horizon. However, not all challenges of this completely connected ...
  • Goedhals-Gerber, LL; Stander, C; van Dyk, E (LM-SCM 2014 XII. International Logistics and Supply Chain Congress, 2014-10)
    South Africa is one of the world’s largest fresh fruit exporters, exporting a vast number of different fruit types and cultivars. The fresh fruit industry has seen significant growth in the past few years with the future ...
  • Du Plessis, A; Roberts, DE (2006)
    Presentation on hard target LIDAR calibration for SO2. This project aimed at measuring the concentration of the atmospheric pollutants such as gases and mobile laser system for remote detection
  • Pityana, SL (2009-06)
    Metal matrix composite layers were formed on an aluminium substrate by means of laser surface alloying method. Aluminium 1200 was used as a host material and TiC particles were used as the reinforcement. The microstructure ...
  • Strydom, JJ; Cilliers, Jacques E; Gouws, M; Naicker, D; Olivier, K (The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2012-10)
    This paper describes the development and testing of a digital radio frequency memory (DRFM) kernel, as well as some of the functionality which has been added to the system to make it a fully-fledged hardware in the loop ...
  • Strydom, JJ; De Witt, JJ; Cilliers, Jacques E (IEEE, 2014-10)
    This paper describes a simple process for the generation of arbitrary probability distributions of complex data with correlation from sample to sample, optimized for hardware in the loop radar environment simulation. ...
