09. 06.2015, 15:00, room 3999


The Ubiquitous Computing Research Area in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at University of Queensland has recently developed a strong collaboration with the Distributed Sensor Systems group at CSIRO (Australia’s government research organisation). The collaboration is centred around a number of jointly supervised PhD and research Masters research projects, and this talk will outline the current range of topics, viz.

  • Micro environmental modelling using mobile wireless sensor network
  • Cognitive Assistance on Wearable Computers by using Compressive Sensing Theory
  • Localization of wireless sensor networks using mobile beacons
  • Spatio-temporal Analysis of Urban Mobility Dynamics:  A Case Study of Bicycle Sharing Systems
  • Low latency Delay Tolerant networking
  • Energy Efficient Delay Tolerant Networks
  • Mobility tracking using social network data
  • Group-based cooperative trajectory tracking
  • Performance evaluation for delay tolerant network DTN in mobile wireless sensor network MWSNs

In addition, the talk will briefly mention collaborative research opportunities that may be available as part of UQ-TUM collaborative arrangements.


Prof. Neil Bergmann ( has been Professor of Embedded Systems in the School of Information Technology and Electrical Engineering at The University of Queensland, Australia, since 2001. He also holds an honorary position as an Adjunct Scientist at CSIRO – Australia’s national science research organisation. His research area is embedded systems, with special interests in wireless sensor networks, and in FPGA-based reconfigurable computing. He has over 100 publications in journals and conferences. He is an associate editor for ACM Transactions on Reconfigurable Technology and Systems. He is visiting Germany as part of the UQ presenters at The University of Queensland  / Technische Universität München Research Symposium on Water, Environment and Sustainability, 11-12 June 2015.
