Students were able to work with a variety of professionals from automotive manufacturers to the Department of Transportation, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Defense, and research organizations.

Participants were challenged to learn about security challenges associated with building future transportation systems, and to how to adopt secure developmental and cyber architecture to combat these outside threats. Teams will be providing input and performing analysis on current model full-feature cars to look at how to improve future transportation systems.
