C2SMART Center is seeking a Master’s student with interest to join the Blockchain team at C2SMART and help with Connected Vehicles (CVs) data. We propose to leverage the distributed Ledger technology as in permissioned Blockchain to store data from CVs enabling multiple parties to validate data before storing it on the chain thus avoiding malicious data generation by users.

Primary Responsibilities will include:

  • Develop a Blockchain based consensus algorithm along a smart contract among peers to validate data shared to be uploaded to the IPFS by Connected Vehicles with reduced communication overhead.
  • Develop a federated learning-based privacy preserving approach for Connected Vehicles to share information from its BSMs on a distributed ledger that is statistically useful for further analysis.
  • Perform simulations using the cyber-physical testbed developed by C2SMART Center at NYU to validate the proposed approach using synthetic CV BSM data generated by SUMO, a traffic simulator and NS-3, a network simulator.
  • Preparing manuscript for a journal paper to be submitted to Elsevier Transportation Research Part C: Emerging Technologies.

The Center is looking to add a video editor and graphic designer to work in support of the Center’s research projects, events, and communications. The position is responsible for storyboarding, editing, and publishing video content; assisting in creating promotional and outreach materials, both digital and print; photo, graphic, and written content editing; and assisting in developing and maintaining website content.
