The unique relatively low-cost device was developed to enormously reduce engine vibration and also noise levels a vehicle. The Engine Vibration Absorber technology could in principle be used for several applications in the automotive, defence, ship industry, agricultural sector and the aviation...

The problem

Testing for the SARS-CoV-2 infection currently has a significant impact on clinical laboratories globally concerning capacity building; scale-up of testing, stock-out of laboratory supplies, and high cost of reagents. The Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT) recommended by the World...

The invention relates to a process for producing protein microparticles in dilute organic acid solutions and without the presence of an alcohol such as ethanol. The microparticles are formed by dissolving a cereal prolamin protein in a concentrated organic acid solution with agitation and then...

The Automatic Computerized Mobile Whole Body Sanitizer Machine can be used to end the spread of COVID19 Virus, by sanitizing the whole body of a person to ensure the person, after passing through the machine, does not remain with the VIRUS on his/ her body. All machines constructed will be mobile...

My innovation gathers real time data of interactions and contact between people as they go about their daily lives. This information is stored in a secure server used by the medical department to protect identity.

When a person who has this app running on their smart phone is tested positive for COVID-19, medical personell can then retrieve their app ID and access the data which will tell them who the person was recently in contact with for the past 31 days.

Through the app a health personel can contact the potentially infected people and find out if they are experiencing any symptoms

The development of a proprietary irrigation pivot with a walkabout action, to increase surface reach with a single pivot. 

Development Impact

Reducing the capital cost of irrigation farming and manufacturing prospects for the region. This is important for emerging farmers and food security.

The research on mushrooms is aimed at obtaining information around the medicinal properties of mushrooms and how it can be used for both animals and humans. We are currently working on animal feed as an alternative food source to their normal food. Since the mushrooms have medicinal properties, it...

The High Agility Hybrid Serial-Parallel Kinematic Robotic Arm architecture leverages off the benefits of serial and parallel kinematic machines while minimising the disadvantages of each. The design is based on the transmission of mechanical power via embedded drivetrains to each joint in the system...

South African Nuclear Energy Corporation (NECSA) and its subsidiary NTP Radioisotopes are developing prostate specific membrane antigen (PSMA-11) kits for Ga-68 radiolabelling for the PET based diagnosis of prostate cancer.   The kits will be based on a 1-vial concept instead of the conventional 3...

Nosetsa is a machine learning-based precision irrigation add-on proposed byYellow Beast (Pty) Ltd. It uses machine learning to provide autonomous irrigation using real-time sensor data. This allows the user to avoid excessive water losses through evapotranspiration, over-irrigation and ultimately...
