Student Openings

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 for graduate students to work on faculty-led research projects using emerging technologies in transportation and smart cities. This position will assist transportation faculty, postdocs, and students with conducting literature reviews and other research tasks in Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) based on best practices around the country.

Primary Responsibilities will include:

  • Conduct internet searches for new Intelligent Transportation Systems projects and technologies implemented in states/cities across the country.
  • Compile papers/articles that are applicable to this study area for faculty/postdoc review.
  • As directed, summarize findings into bullet points or paragraph abstracts.
  • Search for new sources of information through city/state/federal technical reports, sources, and other links.

The Center is looking for talented students who are interested in cutting-edge technologies and have a solid background in Computer Science towards supporting the IT needs of the transportation research center. The candidates will participate in the full lifecycle of the development and get the experience about how to achieve a real world project.

Primary Responsibilities will include:

  • Design, develop and modify web-based applications for the center.
  • Develop new plugins for the center website.
  • Documenting developed tools, and in support of project deliverables.
