• A computational architecture for real-time systems 

      Mostert, Sias (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2000-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: The engineering of dependable real-time systems for mission critical applications is a resource intensive and error prone process. Achieving dependability requires a general consensus on the correctness ...
    • Automated design of multi-mode fuzzy controllers 

      Hugo, Etienne Martin (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2000-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: A standard fuzzy logic controller is not robust enough to guarantee consistent closed-loop performance for highly non-linear plants. A finely tuned closed-loop response loses relevance as the system ...
    • The determining of optimum protocol strategies for half-duplex telemetry communication links 

      Wolhuter, Riaan (Stellenbosch : Stellenbosch University, 2002-12)
      ENGLISH ABSTRACT: Though not so prominent as the wide band, high speed, mainstream development of data communication networks, cost and particular bandwidth limitations, still ensure extensive and continuing use of ...
    • Low Earth orbit satellite constellation control using atmospheric drag 

      Du Toit, Daniel N.J. (Stellenbosch : University of Stellenbosch, 1997-03)
      This dissertation considers the feasibility of using atmospheric drag to control constellations of micro-satellites in low Earth orbits. The constellation control requirements include an acquisition phase and a maintenance ...
