  • Determining the volumetric characteristics of a passive linear electromagnetic damper for vehicle applications.

    Duke, Mike; Fow, Alista John (Taylor and Francis Online, 2017)
    Previous research has shown that passive electromagnetic damping could be feasible for automotive applications, but there would be a severe weight penalty, particularly in light weight vehicles. With modern advances in ...

    Petrie, Kirsten Culhane; Pope, Clive C.; Powell, Darren (2017)
    This report outlines the findings from the Play.sport evaluation undertaken by The University of Waikato, in conjunction with The University of Auckland, during the period January 2016–August 2017. In this executive summary, ...
  • Stochastic calculus analysis of optical time-of-flight range imaging and estimation of radial motion

    Streeter, Lee V. (Optical Society of America, 2017)
    Time-of-flight range imaging is analyzed using stochastic calculus. Through a series of interpretations and simplifications, the stochastic model leads to two methods for estimating linear radial velocity: maximum likelihood ...
  • Dealing with a quandary: Funding outdoor education in Aotearoa New Zealand

    Campbell-Price, Margi; Cosgriff, Marg (Education Outdoors New Zealand, 2017)
    School websites are one of a number of ways that schools communicate their vision, values, programmes, successes, and about their community in the public domain. An initial stimulus for this article was a study conducted ...
  • Secondary school technology education in New Zealand: Does it do what it says on the box?

    Reinsfield, Elizabeth (Wilf Malcolm Institute of Educational Research, 2014)
    Technology education, as mandated in the New Zealand Curriculum (Ministry of Education, 2007) provides an opportunity for schools and teachers to offer contextually relevant and innovative curriculum responses. Recent ...
  • ‘Red Snow on Their Boots: Russian characters in spy thriller fiction published during the two World Wars': 1-10

    Bydder, Jillene (Popular Culture Association of Australia and New Zealand (PopCAANZ), 2017)
    When we think of spy thriller fiction, and especially of spy thriller fiction written at any time during the Cold War, we think of Soviet or Russian villains. Russian or Soviet characters, some portrayed as heroic and some ...
  • Simple harmonic error cancellation in time of flight range imaging

    Streeter, Lee V.; Dorrington, Adrian A. (OAS Publishing, 2015)
    Amplitude modulated continuous wave (AMCW) time of flight (ToF) range imaging provides a full field of distance measurement, but common hardware is implemented with digital technology which leads to unwanted harmonic ...
  • Maori seeking self-determination or Tino Rangatiratanga? A note

    Toki, Valmaine (University of Auckland, 2017)
    Dr Nin Tomas wrote a considered and substantial piece entitled “Indigenous Peoples and the Māori: The Right to Self-Determination in International Law - From Woe to Go” for the New Zealand Law Review published in 2008.² ...
  • John Dewey’s Epistemological Naturalism and the Prospects for a Normative Scientific Epistemology

    Odebunmi, Jerome Agboola (The University of Waikato, 2017)
    In this thesis, I inquire into the prospects for a normative and scientific epistemology arising from the version of naturalism that dominates Dewey’s later work. I focus on questions such as: Are there peculiar features ...
