UCT in partnership with Stellenbosch University have developed the technology, which has undergone field trials on municipal water networks using a prototype system. 

It is a system consisting of a field device and a back‑end information management system. The field device temporarily connects to...

This novel system allows for digital monitoring of payloads on heavy vehicles and avoids repetitive, physical weighing of the vehicle to check overloading status. This is achieved by digitally linking all weighbridges and cameras on a specific corridor. Once weighed and photographed, the system...

The invention relates to a novel process of partial oxidation of un-agglomerated chromite ore in ferrochrome production processes.

The process includes the steps of:

  1. providing a source of un-agglomerated chromite ore;
  2. subjecting the source of un-agglomerated chromite ore;
  3. to pre...

Sweet potato is an excellent source of energy, while containing substantial quantities of vitamin C and also contribute B-vitamins and minerals such as magnesium, zinc and iron to the human diet. It provides abundant quantities of provitamin A in the form of beta-carotene. Most of the beta-carotene...

RetCAD is a class IIa CE-certified software product using Artificial Intelligence that analyses colour fundus images for the presence of Age-related Macular Degeneration (AMD) and Diabetic Retinopathy (DR), and glaucoma with the newest version. The performance of RetCAD is at the same level as...

CAD4TB is an AI software programme designed to help (non-expert) readers to detect tuberculosis (TB) more accurately and cost-effectively. The speed of digital X-rays combined with deep learning and remote expertise make CAD4TB a valuable asset in the fight against TB.

The output of the CAD4TB...

As global populations grow, so does the demand for timber and its by-products, putting an ever-increasing strain on this natural resource. The best way to fight climate change is to plant trees. But silviculture (tree planting) practices remain highly inefficient in both commercial forestry and...
