How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
Marco Mariola currently works at the School of Chemistry and Physics, University of KwaZulu-Natal. Marco does research in Mechanical Engineering, Electronic Engineering and Aerospace Engineering. Their most recent publication is 'Free-space optical communication alignment system'. In Our lab we aim to produce a low cost laboratory systems. If you have some request we will enjoy to develop and share the system proposed.
The preparation of dialysis-free bacterial nanocrystalline cellulose (BNCC) combined with a suitable polymer to form a robust conducting material remains a challenge. In this work, we developed a polypyrrole@BNCC/PVA nanocomposite that avoids the time-consuming dialysis step and which exhibits bulk electrical conductivity. The nanocellulose (NC) wa...
Point to point communication in free-space is severely dependent upon the alignment of the transmitter and receiver devices. The simplest low cost method for the alignment is achieved by utilising two geographical coordinates and an electronic compass. However, some regions of the Earth have a strong magnetic deviation that can introduce large erro...
Modern micro-controllers are powerful control devices available in a range of packages with a variable number of input/output pins. Smaller microcontrollers, for example the Attiny45, have only six available pins for input/output but relatively powerful performance in terms of processing. However, it is often not possible to exploit the resources o...
