Information and communication technology (ICT) is essential to the operation of business, and create many employment opportunities. High volumes of students graduate in ICT however students struggle to find job placement. ...
Learners’ perceptions of mobile devices for learning in higher education - towards a mobile learning pedagogical framework
The dramatic effect of information technology on society is undeniable. In education, it is evident in the use of terms like active learning, blended learning, electronic learning and mobile learning (ubiquitous learning). ...
Modeling the pulse profiles of millisecond pulsars in the second LAT catalog of γ-ray pulsars
Significant γ-ray pulsations have been detected from ∼40 millisecond pulsars (MSPs) using 3 years of sky-survey data from the Fermi LAT and radio timing solutions from across the globe. We have fit the radio and γ-ray pulse ...
Robust torque ripple mitigation of a line-start PMSM by means of the Taguchi method
—In this paper, a robust design framework is proposed to mitigate torque ripple for line-start permanent magnet synchronous machines (LS-PMSM) by using the Taguchi method. The framework is intended for fine-tuning initial ...
The effect of ten years on the capacity component of the Water Poverty Index
Water management has been carried out for many centuries wherever there has been a need to provide water to large numbers of people. Complex social norms have developed around water management and competing users have ...
Making data structures and algorithms more understandable by programming sudoku the human way
Data Structures and Algorithms is a module in most Computer Science or Information Technology curricula. It is one of the modules most students identify as being difficult. This paper demonstrates how programming a solution ...
Comparative study of steam vs hot water as primary heat transfer medium for a laboratory scale two-tank heated system
The need exists for a benchmark multi-domain practical system that could emulate typical process faults for the purposes of condition monitoring. A proposition was made to develop a heated two-tank system, due to its ...
CREAK descriptor evaluation for visual odometry
Each year, latest state of the art technologies and algorithms arise that claim and prove to-shine their predecessors. One such algorithm is the Colour-based Retina Key-point (CREAK) descriptor, which is based on the FAST ...
Manufacturing of briquettes from typical highveld coal fines using various binders
(Swanson School of Engineering, Univ of Pittsburgh, 2015)
Design of a transmission line monitoring solution for an unmanned quadcopter
Eskom owns thousands of kilometres of transmission lines that need to be inspected in order to plan maintenance. Current methods of inspection are costly and ineffective and could pose safety risks. Systems already developed ...
