The Pervasive Computing team within Data61 has an exciting opportunity for a Senior Software Engineer with strong skills in embedded (microcontroller) programming, and a record of delivering commercial embedded devices. In this position, the successful candidate will manage team members to deliver a close-to-market system of wirelessly networked embedded devices, for low-power tracking of location […]
Researchers from the Distributed Sensing Systems Group are part of a project for detecting and deterring vertebrate pests through spatially distributed sensors and actuators around crop fields. After successfully scaring away elephants from farms and crops in Africa, scientists are trialling the Vertebrate Pest Detect-and-Deter (VPDaD) technology in Australia against pests such as ducks, cockatoos, […]
When a battery runs low it usually needs to be manually recharged, but new approaches are being developed to help this energy source last indefinitely. Self-sustaining batteries are needed for activities that use sensors. These include long-term tracking of wildlife like flying foxes, multi-year biodiversity assessments in Australian rainforests and the Amazon, and studying the […]
The Distributed Sensing Systems Group has an open postdoc position in the area of analytics on wireless embedded devices. Launch your Postdoctoral career, extend your professional network and greatly enhance your future in science and technology whilst solving problems in physiological sensing of animal species in marine environments. The postdoctoral fellowship is part of the […]
Our work on designing a Blockchain architecture for IoT Security and Privacy has been discussed in a recently published article in Forbes. Read the full article here.
The SenseT Data Platform Team, led in CSIRO by Chris Sharman with contributions from several DSS members, has just won the Tasmanian iAward for Research and Development Project of the Year. Well done to everyone in the Sense-T platform project team. Also well done to people who have worked on SensorCloud in related projects over the […]
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.
