The DSS Group will contribute to a new project to develop real-time tracking of feral pigs and buffaloes in remote North Australia. The project brings together CSIRO, James Cook University (JCU) and three Aboriginal organisations through a Department of Agriculture grant. In remote Northern Australia properties are vast with limited seasonal access. In these large connected landscapes feral […]
The Distributed Sensing Systems Group is hiring a new postdoctoral research fellow in Spatiotemporal Data Fusion and Network Science. The postdoc will work in our growing project exploring data fusion of mobility data streams for disease spread prediction. Interested candidates should submit their application documents through the CSIRO jobs site.
Researchers from the Distributed Sensing Systems Group presented key projects to visiting CSIRO CEO Dr. Larry Marshall. Brano Kusy and Phil Valencia showcased project including the Great Barrier Reef Monitoring and Response, Amazon Biodiversity Monitoring, and Bluetooth Low Energy Aware Tracking (Bleat). The presentation was received very positively and with high interest.
CSIRO has been listed by Thomson Reuters as one of the world’s top 25 innovators in the government sector. The ranking process considered 600 institutions worldwide and looked at each institution’s filed patents, how often those applications were granted, how many patents were filed to global patent offices in addition to local authorities, and how […]
A team of scientists from Australia, Brazil and Spain have joined forces to develop the most sophisticated remote monitoring system ever used to track the diminishing biodiversity of South America’s Amazon Jungle. The project will revolutionise the way biodiversity is monitored by creating a distributed, wireless sensor network throughout the jungle with autonomous nodes that […]
Congratulations to Peter Taylor and the broader WIRADA team for their win in the 2016 CSIRO Awards! The Water Information Research and Development Alliance (WIRADA) Project has just won the CSIRO Medal for Impact from Science. Peter Taylor and his project team in DSS have played an integral role in WIRADA, leading the WaterML2.0 data […]
Dr. Frank De Hoog, post-retirement fellow with the Distributed Sensing Systems Group, has just been awarded the 2017 Hannan medal from the Australian Academy of Science. The prestigious Hannan medal recognises research in the fields of statistical science, pure mathematics, applied mathematics and computational mathematics and is made in one of those three areas in turn at […]
The Distributed Sensing Systems Group is teaming up with Definium Technologies and University of Tasmania, under the SenseT collaboration, to deploy the first city-wide LoRa network in Australia in the northern Tasmania city of Launceston. The launch of this effort was announced last week by Hon. Michael Ferguson MP, Minister for Information Technology and Innovation in Tasmania. […]
Dr. Minkyoung Kim has just joined the Distributed Sensing Systems Group as a Postdoctoral Research Fellow. Minkyoung joins CSIRO from Stanford University, where she just finished a year long research project. She holds a PhD from the Australian National University in modelling diffusion dynamics. Her work with DSS Group will focus on understanding disease spread […]
The Distributed Sensing Systems (DSS) Group has entered into a collaboration with the National Health and Medical Research Council (NHMRC) Centre for Research Excellence on Integrated Systems with Epidemic Response (ISER). The collaboration will build on the epidemiology expertise at ISER and the mobility and diffusion modelling expertise in DSS to develop systems that can […]
