    • The development of a piano-recorder system 

      Damm, Bernt W (Cape Technikon, 1993)
      This thesis describes the development and design of a pianorecorder system. This system makes it possible to record the notes played on a piano onto a computer disk. The records can then be used for the manufacturing ...
    • The development of a solid state wind velocity and direction indicator, suitable for data logging 

      Hibbert, Michael Patrick (Cape Technikon, 1992)
      This thesis describes the development of a free standing, maintenance free anemometer which has no rotating parts. The principle of operation is based on the \-vind drag/force around a hollow P.V.c. pipe. The aim is ...
    • The development of a video frame grabber for a PC 

      Stodart, NP (Cape Technikon, 1993)
      This thesis describes the design and development of a computer vision system. The system (Video Frame Grabber) will give PCUsers the potential to capture any visual image into the memory of a computer. This computer ...
    • The development of an 8051 micro-controller evaluation and training board 

      De Beer, Daniel Nel (Cape Technikon, 1996)
      The development of the 8051 Evaluation and Training Board was in response to fulfill a need to have a training board available for students at the start of a micro-controller course. This board must be used to get ...
    • The development of an infra-red monitoring and data-logging system 

      Du Preez, Juan (Cape Technikon, 1991)
      This thesis describes the design and development of an infrared monitoring and data logging system. The infra-red unit will be used to monitor certain hiking trails on Table Mountain, whilst the logging unit will be used ...
    • The development of software for a faxmoden card 

      Stuurman, Christian Phillip (Cape Technikon, 1995)
      This thesis describes the design and development ofsoftware for a FAXMODEM card for a personal computer. The software was developed to enable the designed FAXMODEM card to transmit and receive facsimiles independent of ...
    • The mechanical design and development of a Krypton gas target system for the production of Rubidium-81 

      Stevens, CJ (Cape Technikon, 1992)
      This research project involved the design, development and manufacture of a krypton gas target system for the production of the radioisotope Rubidium-81 at the National Accelerator Centre (NAC). The newly designed system ...
    • The voiceless telephone 

      Van der Linde, Steven Mark (Cape Technikon, 1991)
      Communication in all its various forms, has always played an important role in both the business and social environments. The conventional telephone, taken more often than not for granted, is responsible for keeping over ...
    • Use of high efficient motors for DSM in South Africa's petroleum refineries 

      Mithamo, Peter Ng'ang'a (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2012)
      Electric motors consume over 60% of the world's generated electricity. In South Africa approximately 65% of the energy generated is consumed by electric motors (Niekerk, 2009). About 95% of motors in use in South Africa ...
    • Virtualization of a sensor node to enable the simulation of IEC 61850-based sampled value messages 

      Luwaca, Emmanuel (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2014)
      The IEC 61850 standard, “Communication networks and systems in substations” was promulgated to accommodate the need for a common communication platform within substations for devices from different vendors. The IEC 61850 ...
    • Wireless sensor network monitoring using the Simple Network Management Protocol 

      Steenkamp, Leon (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2012)
      Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have long been separate networks using non-standard, custom and application speci c protocols. The arrival of IPv6 over Low power Wireless Personal Area Network (6LoWPAN) changes this, ...
    • Wireless transformer condition monitoring system 

      Zandberg, Hermanus Andries Jakobus (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2013)
      Pole mounted transformers (PMT) in rural areas present an opportunity for local utilities to do current monitoring on these systems. These transformers are exposed to abnormal amounts of stress due to the vast power demand ...
    • X-band antenna design for nano-satellite applications 

      Maqina, Sinamandla Mvuyisi (Cape Peninsula University of Technology, 2018)
      This research report discusses feasible designs of conformal antennas that provide a proof of concept for the French South African Institute of Technology’s future needs. The design is to be used in forthcoming space ...
