    • XAP - an open source protocol for eHealth 

      Van Der Merwe, A. F. (Industrial Engineering, Stellenbosch University, 2011-09)
      In a recent SAIIE conference paper it was suggested to use xAP protocol in the telemedicine environment. Telemedicine has since been described to evolve into eHealth where the focus is not only on the remote control of ...

    • xAP as an open source communication protocol for health systems engineering : an application in the telemedicine environment 

      Andrag, Erich Paul (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2011-12)
      ENGLISH SUMMARY: Engineering initiatives to standardise the communication of health related systems are ineffective and uncoordinated. The extensive advantages of such standardisation could benefit both quality of service ...

    • A zinc oxide nanowire pressure sensor 

      Van den Heever, Thomas Stanley (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 2010-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Measurement of pressure with zinc oxide (ZnO) nanowires was investigated. ZnO exhibits the piezoelectric effect, generating a voltage when pressure is applied to the material. This relationship between ...

    • ZnO nanowire gas sensor with UV-light for improved sensitivity 

      Van den Heever, T. S.; Hardie, G. L.; Perold, W. J. (SciDoc Publishers, 2013-04)
      ZnO nanowires are synthesised on a patterned substrate in order to see the response to different gases. Under ambient conditions the sensor shows very little response to any gas. A UV-light source is used to increase the ...
