BeepTrace: Blockchain-enabled privacy-preserving contact tracing for COVID-19 and beyond

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed an urgent need for effective contact tracing solutions through mobile phone applications to prevent the infection from spreading further. Blockchain-enabled privacy-preserving contact tracing (BeepTrace) solution for COVID-19 and beyond can support both active and passive modes. This new form of digital contact tracing which uses unbreakable encryption to secure personal data could help win the level of public engagement required to fight the spread of COVID-19. The solution is composed of a mobile app and a blockchain platform. Such a platform can be extended for any other systems for information exchange including transportation, supply chain, healthcare.

Ultra-Reliable Consensus/Decision for Connected Autonomous Systems

Vital societal and industrial autonomous components are increasingly interconnected through communication networks to complete critical decisions cooperatively. However, achieving ubiquitous ultra-reliable consensus/decision through centralised wireless communication systems (e.g., 5G URLLC) can be costly and hard to scale up. Consensus mechanisms such as PBFT, Raft, which has been widely utilised in distributed systems, can provide fault tolerance to these critical systems, even though the individual communication link reliability is relatively low. This demo shows that we can achieve ultra-reliable and low latency consensus/decision by using less reliable (=90%) communication links between the vehicles.

Pristine: Privacy-preserving Data Sharing and Trading Ecosystem for Distributed Wireless IoT Networks

Around 90% of the data generated by sensors never leaves a device's local storage due to security/privacy and economic reasons, thus forming numerous isolated data islands and hindering the true potential of data being utilised. The Pristine project is funded by PETRAS Centre (funding from EPSRC), aim at establishing a sustainable data sharing and trading ecosystem for massive, low capability and wireless connected heterogeneous IoT devices in a privacy-preserving and secure manner. Smart contracts will be adopted in distributed ledger technology (DLT, or blockchain) to underpin access, quality control, trustworthy and high throughput transactions between data providers and consumers. Both economic and social aspects are considered in the system design.

Reorder: Resource Orchestration for Diverse Radio Systems

REORDER is an EPSRC funded project. It aims at building a radio ecosystem on a common infrastructure efficiently accommodates all 5G and beyond vertical industrial and personal communication services. PHY and MAC layer algorithms will be jointly designed and optimised to achieve the quality of service for all slices such as autonomous driving and machine type communications/IoT.
