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.
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 […]
