Factories used to be no place for a kid. In fact, there were some that might’ve even scared the bravest of men. But with today’s super clean 21st century factories some almost resemble a hospital operating room. That’s only one of the reasons that Michigan’s Macomb County – just north of Detroit – has gone all in to educate young students on the benefits of working with today’s manufacturing. Joining John McElroy to talk about this groundbreaking program is County Executive Mark Hackel, Michael DeVault, Superintendent of Intermediate Schools and Larry Drake from Kuka Systems.
Once hackers gain access to a modern car’s controller area network (CAN) bus, they can pretty much control any feature on a car, including the engine, brakes and in many modern cars, even the steering. The CAN bus is the electronic nerve system of a car. There are at least six wireless ways to gain access the CAN bus as identified by researchers at the University of California, San Diego and the University of Washington. The following examples are short range wireless entry points that can gain access to a car from 5 to 300 meters away.
