ECE Research on Need to Safeguard Drones Against Cyber Attacks

Robotic vehicles like Amazon delivery drones or Mars rovers can be hacked more easily than people may think, new research from the University of British Columbia suggests. The researchers, based at UBC's faculty of applied science, designed three types of stealth attack on robotic vehicles that caused the machines to crash, miss their targets or complete their missions much later than scheduled. The attacks required little to no human intervention to succeed on both real and simulated drones and rovers.
