Our article titled: “Who’s to blame when driverless cars have an accident?” has just been published on The Conversation. The article discusses how to determine who’s liable in autonomous vehicle accidents based on sensor data from these vehicles. It highlights our recently proposed framework for using blockchain to enable trust in the sensor data from these […]
Australia’s $17 billion livestock industry plays a vital role in the national economy, fuelled by the rapid growth of Asia and increasing demand for high quality Australian exports from countries such as China. For many livestock producers, locating and monitoring the activity of their livestock has been a time-consuming and often costly challenge. The CSIRO’s […]
