  • Segers, Vaughn; Connan, James (2009)
    This paper discusses an implementation for gesture recognition using eigenvectors under controlled conditions. This application of eigenvector recognition is trained on a set of defined hand images. Training images are ...
  • Tucker, William D.; Blake, Edwin H.; Marsden, Gary; Pearson, Murray; Westerveld, Rudi (Telkom, 2007)
    This paper reports on three years of research and fieldwork with a rural wireless Internet Protocol communication project. We built a long-range WiFi network and custom communication software to support a rural telehealth ...
  • Rai, Idris; Rodrigues, Anthony; Venter, Isabella M.; Mills, Godfrey; Suleman, Hussein; Edumadze, John (2011)
    The principle objective of this research was to establish what computing curricula are required for the Sub-Saharan Africa region. Input from academics, businessmen and the analyses of curricula from several African ...
  • Daniels, Francois; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2008)
    This paper presents a fully decentralised peer-topeer voice communication tool intended for use across mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) by distributed groups who desired collaboration. We examined the synergy between MANETs ...
  • Tucker, William D.; Blake, Edwin H. (International Information Management Corporation, 2008)
    We describe the use of Outcome Mapping to guide the design of a rural telemedicine consultation system in South Africa. While Outcome Mapping was not primarily intended to guide design, we show that it tied in well with a ...
  • Poroye, Adeola; Tucker, William D.; Norman, Michael (Telkom, 2009)
    This paper presents work in progress to explore the utility of Near Field Communication technology to secure mobile financial services. The objective is to evaluate the potential of this approach as an upcoming technology ...
  • Mauwa, H.; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2013)
    Wireless Mesh Networks can provide low cost and reliable community-owned connectivity in developing rural areas. A rural community can use mesh networks to access a wide range of modern information and communication ...
  • Motlhabi, Michael B.; Glaser, Meryl; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2013)
    This paper discusses a prototype for a communication aid on a mobile phone to support a Deaf1 person visiting a public hospital pharmacy. The aim is to prevent problems of non-compliance to treatment due to poor communication ...
  • Wu, Wilson; Radovanovic, Aleksandar; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2005)
    This paper presents an innovative use of the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) for the subscription and notification of geographic information in order to provide a privacy concerned location-based service. SIP is a signaling ...
  • Kobo, Hlabishi Isaac; Tucker, William D.; Liu, Xiao Ming (Telkom, 2011)
    Situation-aware routing seeks to improve quality of service on hybrid wireless mesh networks by making routing decisions based on the current situation of the network. BATMAN-adv is a mesh routing protocol that counts ...
  • Kobo, Hlabishi Isaac; Tucker, William D. (IIMC International Information Management Corporation, 2012)
    This paper describes a situation-aware algorithm based on the current situation of a mesh network with mobile nodes that improves quality of service. After running laboratory performance tests, we concluded that a ...
  • Blake, Edwin H.; Tucker, William D. (IIMC International Information Management Corporation, 2006)
    While the social effects of Information Technology (IT) have received much attention there is very little work on targeted methodologies to develop IT applications and content in a developing world environment. This paper ...

    This paper describes work in progress towards developing a business case and preliminary design for an 802.11-based mesh network in the remote rural community of Mankosi in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. Aside ...
  • Lewis, John; Tucker, William D.; Blake, Edwin H. (Telkom, 2003)
    Instant Messaging is traditionally a text only a air. However, there are instances when it would be useful to bridge to other types of media, like speech. The SoftBridge is an application framework that enables this kind ...
  • Lewis, John; Tucker, William D.; Blake, Edwin H. (Telkom, 2002)
    Users and computing equipment have varying capabilities that include the abilities to exchange text and audio, engage in high bandwidth communication, etc. As the technological options increase, e ective communication ...
  • Tucker, William D.; Glaser, Meryl; Lewis, John (Telkom, 2003)
    Following on several partial prototypes, we built an automated Deaf Telephony bridging application with the SoftBridge platform. The SoftBridge performs multi-modal bridging in real-time using Text-to-Speech (TTS) and ...
  • Sun, Tao; Tucker, William D. (Telkom, 2004)
    We have built a SoftBridge prototype within a JAIN (Java APIs for the Integrated Network) SLEE (Service Logic Execution Environment). A SoftBridge is a semi-synchronous multimodal IP (Internet Protocol) -based communication ...
  • Agbele, Kehinde K.; Adesina, Ademola Olusola; Ekong, Daniel; Ayangekun, Oluwafemi (Hindawi Publishing Corporation, 2012)
    People use search engines to find information they desire with the aim that their information needs will be met. Information retrieval (IR) is a field that is concerned primarily with the searching and retrieving of ...
  • Ghaziasgar, Mehrdad; Connan, James (2008)
    Current wireless human-computer interaction devices such as wireless mice and touchscreens, by and large, incorporate a sophisticated electronic architecture. The sophistication achieves wireless capabilities but carries ...
