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.
