  • Smith, Andrew C; Gelderblom, H (Peripheral Interaction, 2013-09)
    We present interaction with a physical building as a hypothetical example of peripheral interaction. The state of the building's windows provides input to an algorithm which produces abstract art as the result of the ...
  • Smith, Andrew C (IEEE Xplore, 2014-05)
    Clustering is the act of grouping items that belong together. In this paper we explore clustering as a means to construct tangible program logic, and specifically as a means to use multiple tangible objects collectively ...
  • Smith, Andrew C (IEEE, 2016-05)
    Internet of Things (IoT) advocates promise huge benefits but what technical challenges does the maker community face in order to participate in this new technological wave? We report on our experience in incorporating a ...
  • Smith, Andrew C; Gelderblom, H (2016-09)
    This project investigated what a tangible programming environment could look like in which the program is an arrangement of personally meaningful objects. We identified Gestalt principles and Semiotic theory to be the ...
  • 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 ...
  • Smith, Andrew C; Laine, TH (2011-05)
    A combination of modern technology and hand-crafted items is used as a learning tool for children. Instructions from a server are relayed via a cellular phone network to the user. The user places hand-crafted objects on a ...
  • Mathaba, S; Dlodlo, N; Smith, Andrew C; Makitla, I; Sibiya, G; Adigun, M (IIMC (International Information Management Corporation), 2012-05)
    A critical issue in inventory management is having accurate and timely information on stock levels. Therefore advantage should be taken of technologies that can reduce the impact of counterfeits, expired products and ...
  • Smith, Andrew C; Dlodlo, N; Marais, Mario A (2011-07)
    In this paper the authors advocate an approach that supplements current teaching. The approach exploits certain properties of the Internet of Things such as sensing the environment in which the learner is situated, and the ...
  • Dlodlo, N; Gcaba, O; Smith, Andrew C (IST- Africa, 2016-05)
    A smart city is a developed urban area that excels in the area of economy, governance, people and life through strong human capital, social capital and ICT infrastructure. It is a new approach to managing the complexity ...
  • Dlodlo, N; Smith, Andrew C (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2011-09)
    In the South African education landscape, some of the schools have well-resourced science laboratories, while others are under- resourced. This has impacted on the quality of science education in under-resourced schools, ...
  • Smith, Andrew C; Butgereit, L (ZA-WWW 2012 Conference, 2012-11)
    The demand for electrical energy is increasing globally. Both the average as well as the anticipated peak demand must be considered by the supplier when designing an electrical supply. We present an Internet of Things – ...
  • Smith, Andrew C (IEEE, 2015-05)
    To support economic growth, it is generally agreed that the supply of electrical energy has to meet, or exceed, the demand for electrical energy. Assuming the above statement holds true, at least two options exist when one ...
  • Coetzee, L; Butgereit, L; Smith, Andrew C; Thomson, T (ZA-WWW 2012 Conference, 2012-11)
    A smart environment consists of three elements: automation facilities, a network, and intelligent control. This paper describes a project in which a physical model of a smart environment was created, connected to the ...
  • Smith, Andrew C; Dlodlo, N (ACM, 2018-12)
    The Ndebele culture, including its dress code, is at risk of being forgotten as young generations migrate to urban areas, leaving behind their traditions while adopting those that dominate the city. We propose an Internet ...
  • Smith, Andrew C (IEEE Xplore, 2014-05)
    The Internet of Things (IoT) holds the promise of improved programmatic user control over domestic appliances. The developed world dominates the design of programming environments, assuming letteracy and computer literacy ...
  • Reitsma, L; Smith, Andrew C; Van den Hoven, E (IEEE Xplore, 2013-09)
    This paper addresses the need to preserve culturally unique knowledge for future generations. This user-centered design-research case study focused on preserving Indigenous Knowledge (IK) of the South-African BaNtwane ...
  • Smith, Andrew C; Springhorn, H; Mulligan, SB; Weber, I; Norris, J (2011-05)
    We describe a new programming language that is based on physical elements and especially developed to test the hypothesis that a physical computer programming language is possible. This imperative language is deliberately ...
  • Dlodlo, N; Smith, Andrew C (2011-07)
    This research proposes an architecture based on the Internet of Things (IoT) technologies for primary school learners to know about various parameters in their environment, that is, the temperature, light, vibration, sound ...
  • Butgereit, LL; Smith, Andrew C; Thomson, T (Design-Development-Research, 2014-09)
    The modern office is maintained by air conditioners, heaters, lights, smoke detectors, thermostats and other devices. Manufacturers are continually improving these various devices and adding more features –especially ...
  • Dlodlo, N; Smith, Andrew C; Montsi, L; Kruger, Carel P (IST Africa 2013 Conference Proceedings, 2013)
    Energy conservation concerns call for end-users to regulate their electrical consumption and help achieve a balance between the available energy supply and demand. Therefore there is a need for rigorous research into smart ...
