  • Tsela, PL; Van Helden, P; Frost, P; Wessels, K; Archibald, S (IEEE, 2010-07)
    The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) time-series data afford the remote sensing community a unique opportunity to investigate the frequency and distribution of fires. Previous research that validated ...
  • Frost, P (2011)
    Fires kill and injure hundreds of people in South Africa each year, and is also responsible for damage to property and diseases such as athma due to smoke inhalation. The Advanced Fire Information System (AFIS) was started ...
  • Nair, Kishor K; Abu-Mahfouz, Adnan MI; Lefophane, Samuel (IEEE, 2019-03)
    Internet of Things (IoT) has the potential to enable the interconnection of small foot-print devices, which can offer valuable information for various critical use cases. It is expected to enable interconnections of ...
  • Casini, G; Straccia, U; Meyer, Thomas A (Elsevier, 2018-09)
    Description Logics (DLs) under Rational Closure (RC) is a well-known framework for non-monotonic reasoning in DLs. In this paper, we address the concept subsumption decision problem under RC for nominal safe ELO , a notable ...
  • Pelders, Jodi L; Nelson, G (Elsevier, 2019-06)
    Mine workers in South Africa face challenges relating to poor health and safety, including fatigue risks, and poor socioeconomic and living conditions. Fatigue results in impaired mental and physical performance. The aim ...
  • Pelders, Jodi L; Nelson, G (Southern African Institute of Mining and Metallurgy, 2019-03)
    Fatigue is a significant concern in the mining industry as it is a causal or contributing factor in many incidents and accidents. Fatigue can be caused by work- and non-work-related factors. There is a lack of information ...
  • Cooper, Antony K (1989-04)
    Geographically referenced (geo-referenced) information consists of all information that refers to the human-environment system and that can be localized in space and time. This includes cadastral, topographic, hydrographic ...
  • Adedeji, KB; Ponnle, AA; Abe, BT; Jimoh, AA; Abu-Mahfouz, Adnan MI; Hamam, Y (Praise Worthy Prize, 2018-12)
    Pipelines installed in the energy utility corridor with alternating current (AC) or direct current (DC) sources have attendant problem of induced corrosion. In the past years, AC or DC induced corrosion of metallic pipelines ...
  • Sendall, Joshua L; Lysko, Albert A; Maasdorp, Francois DV; Tong, Craig A; Cilliers, Jacques E (IEEE, 2018-11)
    This paper overviews the current development state of a permanent test bed for passive radar. The computational challenges of developing a permanent multistatic passive radar test bed are discussed, and the effects of ...
  • Maluleka, SM; Ruxwana, Lennox N (Springer International Publishing, 2016-03)
    The South African (SA) government adopted Open Source Software (OSS) with the aim to reduce ICT services cost, less dependencies on outsourced proprietary technology, skills and flexibility. However, the SA government was ...

    With the launch of the ZACube-2 nanosatellite, a new technique of wildfire detection and monitoring from space will be evaluated. Potassium is an essential plant macronutrient and all vegetation biomass fires exhibit ...
  • Mxoli, NAM; Mostert, N; Gerber, M (IEEE, 2019-03)
    Traditionally, health records have been stored in paper folders at the physician’s consulting rooms - or at the patient’s home. With the rise of technology there have been many offerings of ways to store health records in ...
  • Louw, Johannes A; Moodley, Avashlin (2016-12)
    In this paper we present a new cascading conditional random field based phrase break model for text-to-speech systems, trained on the speaker specific acoustic data that the text-to-speech voices are trained on. The training ...
  • Maliwatu, R; Lysko, Albert A; Johnson, DL (IEEE, 2018-11)
    The paper considers usage of an existing TV broadcasting transmitter for analyzing propagation and tuning existing propagation models to local conditions for improved accuracy. A comparison of measured signal strength ...
  • Cooper, Antony K (CSIR, 1988-02)
    This paper describes a suite of programs that simulates the lighting effects of the sun or moon on the earth's surface. A digital terrain model (DTM) is typically a two-dimensional regular tessellation of some measured ...
