DARPA – Hacking Vehicles
The ’60 Minutes’ TV show recently had a presentation which documented staff from DARPA (Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency), a U.S. based company, hacking a car. Conspiracy theorists (See: Michael Hastings) and automation driven industries are likely going to be very interested in these developments. Imagine what could be done, especially if these cars are connected globally like many ‘Internet of Things’ devices are doing. Should we be backing away from automation and connectivity to all devices to a degree?
Take a look at the video below for a short overview of what is, or rather was possible around a year ago.
