||PCT/ZA2014/000031||MOBII SYSTEMS (PTY) LTD||THACKER, MIchael Don|
A method of generating and processing images with variable light conditions includes the steps of: (i) capturing a first image using a sensor or camera having a first quality parameter setting (e.g. ISO sensitivity setting, the shutter speed setting, the aperture setting and/or the sensitivity setting); (ii) capturing a second image using, a sensor or camera having a second quality parameter setting, which second quality parameter setting is different to the first quality parameter setting; (iii) creating a composite image using a portion of the first image and a portion of the second image, without overlap of the image portions; and (iv) performing an image processing technique on the composite image.

||PCT/ZA2014/000027||UNIVERSITY OF PRETORIA||HEYDENRYCH, Michael, David|
The invention provides an apparatus which consists of two fluidised beds 1 and 2 separated by a vertical divides' 5. A positive displacement device such as an auger 3 moves the bed material from the reduction side to the combustion side of the device below the fluidisation zone. The height of the two fluidised beds is equalised by movement of the bed material through a hole 4 In the vertical divider, from the high temperature side 1 (zone 1) to the tow temperature side 2 (zone 2). The bed material that moves through the hole 4 provides energy to drive reactions that may occur on the reduction side. Energy may also be provided to zone 2 by means of conductive and radiative heat transfer through the dividing wall 5. Energy is provided to zone 1 by means of an exothermic reaction, typically combustion of a fuel 13 using air 12.

A signal is injected into a wired series of detonators to obtain a reflected signal which represents a validated status of the system. The reflected signal is compared to a second reflected signal, generated in a similar way, some time later; to detect factors which affect the validated status of the system.

A military projector comprises a tubular housing that contains a high intensity lamp, a reflecting mirror behind the high intensity lamp, a negative lens which is carried in a first mounting member located in front of the lamp, and a pair of positive meniscus lenses which axe mounted in a second mounting member spaced from and movable relative to the negative lens so that the distance between the negative and positive lenses can be varied. A carrier member having a clear opening and an opening containing a filter is located between the negative and positive lenses. A moving means moves the carrier member between a first position in which the light passes through the filter before reaching the positive meniscus lenses and a second position in which the light passes through the clear opening. An elongated tubular electromagnetic shield extends beyond the meniscus lenses.

|PCT/ZA2014/000021||PRIMARY TECHNOLOGY SERVICES CC||WHYTE, Mark Peter|
A lightning detection and protection system includes a plug for plugging the system into a mains power supply outlet socket and a number of electrical sockets for receiving plugs from electrical appliance. The system also includes a lightning detector to detect a lightning strike and to estimate the distance of the lightning strike from the detector. A communications module, responsive to the lightning detector, communicates with a user that lightning has been detected by sending an SMS or data message to the user's cell phone. Finally, a lightning protection module disconnects at least one electrical socket from the mains power electrical supply either automatically if the lightning gets too close and/or by receiving an SMS / data response from the user.
