lecture: Hacking Driverless Vehicles
Autonomous and unmanned systems are already patrolling our skies and oceans and being tested on our streets and highways. Pioneering tests of autonomous vehicles were performed in Europe and all trends indicate these systems are at an inflection point that will show them rapidly becoming commonplace. This presentation will discuss the capabilities and potential vulnerabilities of these systems, and summarize recent research into successfully subverting various components.
This session will be an informative and amusing look at the current
state of civil driverless vehicles and what hackers or other miscreants
might do to mess with them. Topics covered will include common sensors, decision profiles and their potential failure modes and edge cases that can be exploited, including recent research demonstrating practical attacks. The talk will also contain information from conversations with the US Department of Transportation including insights into the new Connected Vehicle and Vehicle To Vehicle Communications programs that may be hacking-relevant well before the widespread adoption of fully autonomous cars and other vehicles.
