PETRAS SRF award to Dr Arshad Jhumka to investigate trust in IoT systems

Dr Arshad Jhumka from the department’s Artificial Intelligence research theme has been awarded a grant as PI, under the PETRAS SRF programme, to develop and deploy a trusted edge-based Internet of Things (IoT) network. IoT networks are expected to be deployed as solutions to problems in a wide variety of contexts, from non-critical applications such as smart city monitoring to providing support to emergency services such as critical communications. As IoT devices are resource constrained, execution of resource-hungry applications will be offloaded to edge networks for quick response. Such an infrastructure is open to cyber-attacks and needs to be resilient to attack.

Revealing the Magnetic Nature of Tornadoes in the Sun’s atmosphere

In a study to be published in the Astronomy & Astrophysics journal, a collaboration between the Italian National Institute for Astrophysics (INAF), the University of Warwick and the Italian Space Agency (ASI) has achieved the first three-dimensional tomography of the magnetic fields in a solar tornado and have measured their faint polarimetric signals.

The constant motions of the Sun’s surface creates giant tornados in the chromosphere a few thousand kilometers in diameter. Like their name sakes on Earth they carry mass and energy high up into the atmosphere and are therefore keenly studied as energy channels to explain the extraordinary heating of the solar corona. The main building block of solar tornados are tangled magnetic fields. This work presents the first direct observation of the chromosphere magnetic field to reveal the magnetic nature of solar tornados. Read more

How dashcams help and hinder forensics

DashcamDashcams are vital for helping police investigate car incidents, however the way the footage is submitted to police, managed and processed can cause problems. A researcher at WMG, University of Warwick has assessed seven different types of dashcams’ SD storage systems to see how they help and hinder digital forensics.

Many cars now have dashcams, an in-vehicle mountable camera which records video and audio footage of journeys. They have significant evidential value in digital forensics as they provide GPS data, temporal data, vehicular speed data, audio, video and photographic images.

In the paper, Dashcam forensic: A preliminary analysis of 7 dashcam devices’, published in the paper Forensic Science International: Digital Investigation, Dr Harjinder Lallie, from WMG, University of Warwick explores two aspects of dashcam evidence: the problems related to the management and processing of dashcam evidence, and an analysis of artefacts generated by dashcams.
