Paper accepted at IEEE TMC

Our paper titled “Fair Scheduling for Data Collection in Mobile Sensor Networks with Energy Harvesting” has just been accepted at IEEE Transactions on Mobile Computing. Congratulations to lead author Lukas Li and the entire team!

Open Postdoctoral Fellowship in Data and Network Science

The Distributed Sensing Systems Group is hiring a new postdoctoral research fellow in Data 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.

Blockchain-based Liability Framework for Autonomous Vehicles

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 vehicles and to track interactions with them before and after an accident happens.

This work is part of our Blockchain for IoT Security and Privacy project.

Read the full article at the Conversation. The article has also been republished by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and the New Zealand Herald. It was followed up by  interviews at TripleM and 2UE National Radios, Sydney’s 2SER Radio, and Radio Adelaide.

A separate article was published by Computer World on the same topic.
