DEFCON video: Hacking Driverless Vehicles

Posted on Monday, September 16th, 2013 in robotics, Videos by the machinegeek


In this presentation from the recent Defcon 21 conference, Zoz Brooks provides an overview of the current state of civil driverless vehicles and what hackers or miscreants might do to mess with them. Topics covered include common sensors, decision profiles and their potential failure modes that could be exploited.

While many remember Zoz as co-host of the Discovery Channel show “Prototype This!”, he’s also a robotics interface designer and rapid prototyping specialist. He is a co-founder of Cannytrophic Design in Boston and CTO of BlueSky in San Francisco.

  • KH: Really? They are digital inputs driven by an MCU. The MCU GPIO probably has diode clamps and ESD protection. Have you experienced such failures? Please...
  • KH: Neither. Google "Marco Schweighauser’s 8-bit virtual Javascript CPU" and see the first result. Sounds more like a very limited feature toy CPU.
  • Alan: "8-bit x86 like CPU" - isn't that an 8080, or Z80?
  • Geoff: Is it still Sunday somewhere? If so, yes please.
