Two of our papers have been ranked as some of the top-cited papers by Google Scholar at their respective venues. The Google Scholar rankings, which consider the period of the last 5 years, rank our paper Blockchain for IoT security and privacy: The case study of a smart home. as the 3rd most cited paper at Percom […]
CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency, and agtech startup Ceres Tag have created a new type of ‘fit bit’ to help farmers to keep track of where their livestock are and what they are doing. Using the device farmers can track where their herds graze, if an animal has escaped or been stolen, and even unusual […]
Raja Jurdak, Ali Dorri, Salil Kanhere There’s been a lot of hype about blockchain over the past year. Although best known as the technology that underpins Bitcoin, blockchain is starting to disrupt other industries, from supply chains to energy trading. One of the key selling points of blockchain is that once data is added to […]
The Distributed Sensing Systems Group has teamed up with early-stage construction startup Ynomia and construction company ProBuild to develop the Group’s BLEAT technology specifically for reimagining worksite work flows. Ynomia has just secured $150,000 in funding from the Victorian Government to grow the existing collaboration with CSIRO’s Data61. Read the full article at SmartCompany.
Distributed Sensing Systems Group alumnus and ongoing collaborator, Dr. Rajib Rana, has just been awarded a QLD Young Tall Poppy Science Award. These awards recognise and celebrate people who demonstrate scientific excellence and a unique passion for science communication, as well as encourage young people to enter STEM careers. Read the detailed announcement here.
CSIRO, through its Data61 Business Unit, has entered into a tripartite Collaboration with Ynomia and Probuild to deploy BLEAT (Bluetooth low energy active) sensors, across Probuild construction sites to provide workflows, asset tracking and improved HSE insights. This project, led by the Distributed Sensing Systems Group at Data61, has objectives around smart program scheduling, via Ynomia’s […]
The Distributed Sensing Systems Group was a key contributor to the Amazon Providence Project for biodiversity monitoring in the Amazon rainforest. The project has recently concluded with a network of ten multimodal sensing nodes deployed in the forest, along with several robots. Read the CSIROscope blog article here.
Engineers Australia’s Create Magazine has recently published a profile article on DSS Group Leader Raja Jurdak’s, focusing on work related to long-term energy-neutral operation of embedded sensor nodes. Read the full article here.
The Distributed Sensing Systems Group is hiring a new postdoctoral research fellow in Data and Network Science. The postdoc will work in our growing DiNeMo project exploring data fusion of mobility data streams for disease spread prediction. Interested candidates should submit their application documents through the CSIRO jobs site.
Cebit has recently published a blog article covering the Kinetic Energy Harvesting (KEH) Sensing work led by Sara Khalifa in the Distributed Sensing Systems Group. It refers to this work as “an example of Australian innovation at its finest,” and interviews Dr. Khalifa to discuss her work and her journey through winning iAwards and APICTA […]
