Four research programs have been established in CRIN to sharpen its research focus

28 July 2016

Four research programs have been established in CRIN to shapen its reserach focus:

  • Intelligent Transport Systems Program (ITSP)
  • Program Director: Dr Xiaobo Qu

The Intelligent Transportation Systems Program (ITSP) focuses on applying emerging technologies (e.g. advanced sensing, information gathering and processing, telecommunications, data analytics) to improve the performance of transportation systems, in terms of level of service, safety, efficiency, equity, reliability, and sustainability. This research group has been very productive with numerous papers published at top tier journals (e.g. Transportation Research Part B: Methodological, Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies, IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems, IEEE Transactions on Communications, IEEE Transactions on Wireless Communications) and a number of externally funded research projects.

  • Security, Trust and Privacy Research Program (STPRP)
  • Program Director: Dr Priyadarsi Nanda 

The Security, Trust and Privacy Research Program (STPRP) within the CRIN is strongly engaged in solving real-world problems leading to prevention, detection and preserving information privacy in multi-modal systems. The group’s research focus is spanned across research areas such as; Intrusion Detection and Prevention techniques, Intelligent fire-wall design, Internet of Things (IOT) security, Transport and Vehicular Security and Cloud based data security. The group has been conducting research since 2008 and published many high quality research papers as well as attracting significant research funding from industries.  

  • Wireless Embedded Networked Sensing and Localization Program (WENSLP)
  • Program Director: A/Prof Kumbesan Sandrasegaran 

The Wireless Embedded Networked Sensing and Localization Program (WENSLP) focuses on developing wireless sensing systems and applying this technology to scientific and societal projects. The ever decreasing size and cost of computing components is setting the stage for detection, processing, and communication technology to be embedded throughout the physical world and thereby fostering both a deeper understanding of the environment and enhancing our ability to design and control these complex systems. The goal of the program is to investigate fundamental properties of wireless embedded networked sensing systems, developing new technologies, and exploring novel scientific and educational applications.

  • Advanced Networks Program (ANP)
  • Program Director: Prof Robin Braun

Technical and economic drivers cause a continuous reevaluation and redevelopment of current networking paradigms. At the present time, hierarchical paradigms are shifting from being object centric to being software defined. This is embodied in Software Defined Networks and Network Function Virtualization. The next move will be towards Information Centric Networking. This program concentrates its research in the way that we achieve networking in the future.
