  • Zeeman, A. S.   Booysen, Marthinus J. (IEEE -- Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2013-10)
    The informal transport industry in Sub-Saharan Africa is notoriously dangerous, leading to many fatalities annually. This paper presents an innovative way of monitoring driver behaviour, in real-time, by taking into ...
  • Muller, R. I.   Booysen, Marthinus J. (IEEE -- Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2014-01)
    The availability and depletion of natural resources is increasingly punted as the limiting factor for sustainability. A lot of focus is currently placed on the role and effect of fossil fuels as well as water conservation. ...
  • Booysen, Marthinus J.   Zeadally, Sherali   Van Rooyen, Gert-Jan (IEEE -- Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2013-06)
    Despite various proposed Medium Access Control (MAC) approaches, efficient medium access in VANET remains a significant challenge, especially for the broadcast of safety messages. A key contributing factor to packet ...
  • Booysen, Marthinus J.   Andersen, S. J.   Zeeman, A. S. (IEEE -- Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2013-10)
    Developed countries have lead the way in the implementation of Intelligent Transport Systems, with the objectives of improving safety, efficiency, and environmental impact of transport. With the developing world entering ...
  • Dreijer, Janto F.   Herbst, Ben M.   Du Preez, Johan A. (BioMed Central, 2013-07)
    Background: This paper considers automatic segmentation of the left cardiac ventricle in short axis magnetic resonance images. Various aspects, such as the presence of papillary muscles near the endocardium border, makes ...
  • Booysen, Marthinus J.   Gilmore, J. S.   Zeadally, Sherali   Van Rooyen, Gert-Jan (Korea Society of Internet Information (KSII), 2012-02)
    To address the need for autonomous control of remote and distributed mobile systems, Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communications are rapidly gaining attention from both academia and industry. M2M communications have recently ...
  • Booysen, Marthinus J.   Ebot, N. A.   Akpa, E. N. O. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2014-07)
    Minibus taxis are considered to be notoriously dangerous and are seen as the epitome of bad driving in South Africa in particular, and Sub-Saharan Africa in general. Minibus taxis are used for long-distance and urban travel. ...
  • Booysen, Marthinus J.   Zeadally, Sherali   Van Rooyen, Gert-Jan (The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET), 2012-04)
    The emergence of computationally rich vehicles and recent advances in wireless communication technologies are fueling vehicular network research in industry and academia. A key challenge to the successful deployment of ...
  • Zeeman, Adriaan Siebrits   Booysen, Marthinus J. (Southern African Transport Conference, 2014-07)
    The informal transport industry in Sub-Saharan Africa is notoriously dangerous, leading to many fatalities annually. This paper presents an innovative way of monitoring driver behaviour, in real-time, by taking into account ...
  • Booysen, Marthinus J. (Development Bank of Southern Africa, 2013-07)
    Countries like the United States, Japan, and a number of countries in Europe, have led the way in a field that has become known as Intelligent Transportation Systems. The term broadly describes any intelligent intervention ...
  • Le Roux, J. H.   Barnard, A.   Booysen, Marthinus J. (IEEE -- Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2013-10)
    Developing countries face many infrastructure related challenges, one of them being road safety. This paper proposes a novel system introducing a network of wirelessly connected road studs that are remotely controllable ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
  • 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 ...
