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 […]
DSS Group students Vikram Kumar and Izanoordina Ahmad have just won the Best Paper Award at the International Conference on Wireless Sensing (ICWiSe).
Our virtual fencing technology is being commercialised by Agersens into its e-Shepherd system. Read the full story here!
A paper from the Distributed Sensing Systems Group on “Understanding the spatiotemporal pattern of grazing cattle movement” has just been published in Nature Scientific Reports here. The paper uses high frequency GPS data collected by CSIRO’s tracking nodes to analyse the features of animal movement and provide new insights on the likely mobility driver.
