  • Butgereit, LL; Van Rooyen, B (2011-09)
    The “Internet of Things” is the new paradigm where “things” are becoming more widely connected to the Internet. More and more inanimate objects (such as cars, bridges, cell phones, digital cameras, and telescopes) are ...
  • Maduray, K; Karsten, AE (European Cells & Materials, 2010-01)
    Photodynamic therapy (PDT) uses a drug termed a photosensitizer (PS), light (laser) of an appropriate wavelength and molecular oxygen (tissue) to elicit cell death of cancer cells. The objective of this study was to evaluate ...
  • Walters, Laticha EM; Mars, M; Scott, RE (2015-11)
    South Africa’s HIV/AIDS prevalence rate is 17,9%, the highest being in KwaZulu-Natal. Dermatological diseases are linked to HIV/AIDS. Tele-dermatology was not part of the 1998 National Telemedicine Project. Only phase I ...
  • Walters, Laticha EM; Mars, M; Scott, RE (Stellenbosch University: Faculty of Medicine and Health Science, 2015-10)
    This is presentation on teledermatology programs in South Africa that indicate the inequitable access to health care, the ineffective and inefficient referral system as well as the shortage of dermatologists.
  • Nortje, Karen (2011-01)
    The paper is a case study on sustainable livelihoods and biodiversity in developing countries.
  • Pelders, Jodi L; Nelson, G (Taylor & Francis, 2018-04)
    Poor living conditions are a consequence of the history of the South African mining industry (SAMI), despite legislation having been implemented to attempt to address this challenge. This paper describes the living conditions ...
  • Ittmann, HW (Operations Research Society of South Africa (ORSSA), 2011-09)
    The Constitution of South Africa requires that both national and local government elections be held every five years. These elections are not held simultaneously; currently, the local government elections are held two years ...
  • Abu-Mahfouz, Adnan MI (2012-04)
    This project presents an extension to the current version of ns-2, which enables a normal user, who has basic knowledge of ns-2, to simulate localization system within a wireless network. Moreover, this project would be ...
  • Abu-Mahfouz, Adnan MI; Hancke, GP (Inderscience, 2018-01)
    Many wireless sensor network (WSN) applications and techniques require sensor location to work correctly. Information fusion in WSNs is crucial for location discovery and many information fusion techniques have been used ...
  • Brits, R; Engelbrecht, AP; Van den Bergh, F (Elsevier Science Inc, 2007)
    Many scientific and engineering applications require optimization methods to find more than one solution to multimodal optimization problems. This paper presents a new particle swarm optimization (PSO) technique to locate ...
  • Croucamp, PL; Rimer, S; Kruger, Carel P (IEEE, 2014-07)
    Theft of cables used for powering a locomotive not only stops the train from functioning but also paralyzes the signalling and monitoring system. This means that information on certain locomotive's cannot be passed onto ...
  • Marais, J; Malekian, R; Abu-Mahfouz, Adnan MI (AFRICON, 2017-09)
    The Internet of Things (IoT) is a fast-growing movement turning devices into always-connected smart devices through the use of communication technologies. This facilitates the creation of smart strategies allowing monitoring ...
  • Baumbach, J; Marais, Andre H; Gonçalves, DP (International Council on Systems Engineering South Africa, 2015-09)
    Despite the advances in mature engineering disciplines, some complex systems continue to fail, and sometimes catastrophically. The lack of understanding of a problem and all its constituting elements is a key determinant ...
  • Oberholster, Paul J; Cheng, Po Hsun H (2016-09)
    This presentation discusses a low cost algae-based tertiary treatment for waste water treatment works in rural areas of developing countries. The focus areas of the presentation include water availability in Africa and ...
  • Oberholster, Paul J; Cheng, Po Hsun; Steyn, Maronel; Genthe, Bettina; De Lange, Willem J; Tancu, Yolanda; Claassen, Marius; Monjerezi, M; Kenebatho, P (2018-06)
    The project describes a self-sustainable technology requiring no chemicals or electricity. Algae is grown in algae bio-reactors and the ponds are dosed on a monthly basis for treatment. Feasibility of the treatment technology ...
  • Bezuidenhout, Petrone H; Smith, Suzanne; Land, Kevin J; Joubert, T-H (IEEE AFRICON 2017, 2017-09)
    The work presented details the development of a lowcost potentiostat, with the aim of creating an ink-jet printed hybrid paper-based low-cost sensing system for rapid water quality monitoring. Potentiostats exhibit high ...
  • Bezuidenhout, Petrone H; Land, Kevin J; Joubert, T-H (SPIE, 2016-09)
    Electrochemical biosensing is used to detect specific analytes in fluids, such as bacterial and chemical contaminants. A common implementation of an electrochemical readout is a potentiostat, which usually includes ...
  • Carpanen, D; Webster, C; Pandelani, Thanyani A; Newell, N; Clasper, J; Masouros, S (2018-07)
    The lower extremity is the most common body region injured in modern warfare which is characterised by proliferation of explosive weapons. Personnel on foot (dismounted) attacked by anti-personnel mines sustain predominantly ...
