    Naturalistic Driving Studies (NDS) is a research methodology that has the potential to improve existing approaches for collecting data about driver behaviour and performance in normal driving conditions. Analysis of ...
  • Rawoot, Ishreen; Van Heerden, Adelai; Parker, Laaiqah (AOSIS Open Journals, 2017-07)
    A career within the South African Operational Forces is physically, mentally and emotionally challenging. It is a diverse working environment with its own organisational culture and unique challenges. The aim of the study ...
  • Ledwaba, Lehlogonolo; Venter, HS (AIS Electronic Library, 2017-01)
    The ability to network machinery and devices that are otherwise isolated is highly attractive to industry. This has led to growth in the use of cyber-physical systems (CPSs) with existing infrastructure. However, coupling ...
  • Pieterse, FF; Bidgood, Peter M; Vaz, NF (South African Institution of Mechanical Engineering (SAIMECHE), 2017)
    The requirements that a wind tunnel balance need to satisfy have become increasingly stringent. These requirements, as set out by the wind tunnel testing community, include: improved static force accuracy and resolution, ...
  • Naudé, Brian; Petzer, Charl A (Wiley, 2017-07)

    Research in iris biometrics has been focused on utilizing iris features as a means of identity verification and authentication. However, not enough research work has been done to explore iris textures to determine soft ...
  • Dabrowski, JJ; De Villiers, JP (Elsevier, 2015-11)
    A unified Bayesian model that simultaneously performs behavioural modelling, information fusion and classification is presented. The model is expressed in the form of a dynamic Bayesian network (DBN). Behavioural modelling ...
  • Botes, FH; Leenen, Louise; De La Harpe, R (Academic Publishing, 2017-06)
    In the ashes of Moore’s Law, companies have to acclimatise to the vast increase of data flowing through their networks. Reports on information breaches and hackers claiming ransom for company data are rampant. We live in ...
