• Simple capacitive seat sensing for occupancy detection and passenger counting in minibus taxis 

      Zeeman, Adriaan Siebrits; Booysen, Marthinus J. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2014-07)
      The informal public transportation sector in Sub-Saharan Africa contributes significantly to public transport, and yet little is known about passenger mobility patterns. We propose a low cost system to measure occupancy ...
    • A single-element plane-wave solid-state laser rate equation model 

      Bernhardi, E. H.; Bollig, C.; Esser, M. J. D.; Forbes, A.; Botha, L. R.; Jacobs, C. (Academy of Science of South Africa, 2008)
      A numerical rate equation model has been developed to describe the dynamics of a solid-state laser during continuous wave or Q-switched operation. The model allows the optimization of parameters such as the output coupler ...
    • SUNSAT: Suid-Afrika se eerste satelliet in die ruimte 

      Schoonwinkel, A.; Milne, G. W.; Du Plessis, J.; Mostert, S. (AOSIS Publishing, 2002-09-28)
      AFRIKAANSE OPSOMMING: Die SUNSAT-satelliet is as navorsing- en ontwikkelingsprogram aan die Universiteit van Stellenbosch bedryf van 1992 tot 2001. Dit het nuwe tegnologie vir Suid-Afrika verwerf en internasionaal ’n nuwe ...
    • Survey of Media Access Control (MAC) protocols for Vehicular Ad hoc NETworks (VANETs) 

      Booysen, Marthinus J.; Zeadally, Sherali; Van Rooyen, Gert-Jan (The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2011-07)
      Recent advances of various wireless communication technologies and the emergence of computationally rich vehicles are pushing Vehicular Ad-hoc NETwork (VANET) research to the forefront in academia and industry. A lot of ...
    • Temporal case study of household behavioural response to Cape Town's Day Zero using smart meter data 

      Booysen, M. J.; Visser, M.; Burger, R. (Elsevier, 2018-11-13)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Faced with the threat of "Day Zero", when it was feared that Cape Town's taps could run dry, consumers reduced household water usage from 540 to 280 litres per household per day over the 36 months ...
    • Virtual reality assisted microscopy data visualization and colocalization analysis 

      Theart, Rensu P.; Loos, Ben; Niesler, Thomas R. (BioMed Central, 2017-02-15)
      Background: Confocal microscopes deliver detailed three-dimensional data and are instrumental in biological analysis and research. Usually, this three-dimensional data is rendered as a projection onto a two-dimensional ...
    • 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 ...
