Jared Sperli stashed this in cyber
Stashed in: Robots!
this is cool and important
The Lawfare Drone Smackdown started as a fake grudge match with Alice Beauheim and a demonstration project in the proliferation of cheap, powerful robotic technologies to the consumer. But it ended with a different lesson: Cybersecurity is really important, and one ignores it at oneâs great peril.
It's getting so easy to be an amateur roboticist these days. I've been meaning to start playing with Arduino boards and the like. Maybe I'll just get a Parrot AR.Drone.
I'm not really interested in the hardware aspect -- I want hardware that already works and supports a programming interface so that I can focus more on the software.
I love this competition. The cyber attack aspect is pretty cool -- I don't think it would have occurred to me to weaponize the drone in that way.
