Internships & research Openings

Technology and Data Science Transportation Student Researcher

C2SMART Center is seeking a Graduate Student with interest in Blockhain and/or Cybersecurity to join the C2SMART Center research team. With the emergence of connected and autonomous vehicles as well as the increasing levels of automation of all transportation systems, there is a growing recognition of cybersecurity threats to all of the transportation system components including vehicles, users, and cyber and physical infrastructures. We are also proposing 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.
