The technology is a smart water meter with the capabilities of leakage detection and water quality monitoring. It is suitable for rollout at the municipal level using existing household meters. It can also be used in housing estates and blocks of flats. The technology is being developed to...

The decomposition (electrolysis) of water into hydrogen and oxygen gas has been around since the year 1800. Water electrolysis has been gaining increasing attention globally as an effective means of storing renewable energy in the form of hydrogen gas. Hydrox Holdings Ltd. has attempted to...

Water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes) is an aquatic weed which has one of the highest growth rates of all plants in the world. This fast-growing plant causes numerous problems in water bodies.  These problems are related to navigation, recreation, irrigation and hydropower generation. The...

Nosetsa is a machine learning-based precision irrigation add-on proposed by Yellow 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...

The proposed technology is a vertical modular hydroponics pipe system which affords cultivated plants continuous access to mineral solution even while the irrigating system is off. The design allows for plants to be irrigated periodically, as opposed to continuously, thus reducing the amount of...

Tofaa has developed an energy-efficient egg incubator - the Kukata egg incubator whose purpose is to help poultry farmers boost their production levels in an energy-efficient way. Kukata is built to save energy hence creating an opportunity to boost poultry production in rural areas via solar...

A new technology that provides the first ever high-throughput 3D imaging of locked diamonds within kimberlite rocks. Locked diamonds of up to 10cm in diameter can now be located within rocks before the crushing process begins.

Conventional sorting as well as other more recent sorting...

There are 1 million upper limb amputees across South Africa, with an estimate of another 5 million in the rest of Africa.  Research has shown that amputees find available prostheses too expensive, uncomfortable and/or have limited functionality. This results in many amputees discarding their...

Monitoring location and activities of miners, as well as environmental information, is essential to ensure miner safety, with current information transmission systems used in underground mines not cost-effectively delivering on this need.  Visible Light Communication (VLC) and Power Line...

The project is aimed at developing a light-weight, cricket bat sleeve prototype which can be placed on the face of any cricket bat. The correlating prototype sensors that can be placed inside the front panel of a bat. These measures the accuracy of ball placement on the bat, force generated to...
