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 […]
It’s easier to find a feral buffalo than a mobile signal in Arnhem Land, but that hasn’t deterred a team of researchers and Indigenous rangers from connecting a bunch of the region’s feral animals to the internet. Buffaloes, along with feral pigs, are having a devastating impact on wetlands and important cultural sites in the […]
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 […]
