The “extended temperature” designation theoretically assures that the SBC will perform reliably in extreme temperature environments. If an SBC supplier labels their product as “extended temperature”, then it will be reliable in the field.

A noted hacker now claims he can highjack simple drones and get control of them. Samy Kamkar, a privacy and security researcher perhaps best known for creating the Evercookie, a nearly-impossible-to-delete web browser cookie, says he uses a Parrot AR.Drone 2 to fly in the vicinity of the drone target. This quadcopter, widely available for about $200, looks for the wireless signal that is used to control the target drone, then disconnects the wireless connection and pretends to be the owner.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"><ul class="links"><li class="og_links first last"><a href="/blog/shop-floor-software">From Shop Floor to Software</a></li> </ul></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/blog/you-knew-was-coming-hacker-figures-out-how-skyjack-drones" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/blog/you-knew-was-coming-hacker-figures-out-how-skyjack-drones#comments drone hacker Samy Kamkar skyjack Embedded From Shop Floor to Software Mon, 09 Dec 2013 16:38:00 +0000 32681 at http://machinedesign.com
