UTS and Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) has recently signed research agreement to establish a joint research centre for mobile communications. The joint centre provides excelllent platform for researchers and students at both universities to collaborate and visit each other to further enhance the research leadership of both universities in the important areas of next generation mobile communication systems, green communications and vehicular networks.
Four research programs have been established in CRIN to shapen its research focus: Intelligent Transport Systems Program (ITSP), led by Dr Xiaobo Qu; Security, Trust and Privacy Research Program (STPRP), led by Dr Priyadarsi Nanda; Wireless Embedded Networked Sensing and Localisation Program (WENSLP), led by A/Prof Kumbesan Sandrasegaran; and Advanced Networks Program (ANP), led by Prof Robin Braun.
Prof Guoqiang Mao was appointed into the Australian Research Council “Excellence in Research for Australia (ERA)” Research Evaluation Committee for “Engineering and Environmental Sciences” for ERA 2015. This prestigious appointment acknowledges and confirms the high-quality research of Prof Mao in his field and is a big success for both Prof Mao personally and the CRIN team.
A team of 12 UTS researchers, led by CRIN researcher A/Prof Kumbesan Sandrasegaran, have won a grant entitled "Monitoring from a distance – meeting the needs of the water industry using remote sensing and smart monitoring" from Water Research Australia.
Associate Professor Mehran Abolhasan and Dr Daniel Franklin from CRIN have contributed to the success of ICC 2014 as the Conference Operations Chair and the Local Arrangements and Web Chair respectively.
