Cyber Truck Challenge: June 11-15, 2018

CALSTART in conjunction with the Michigan Economic Development Council (MEDC), TARDEC, and the National Motor Freight Traffic Association (NMFTA) is supporting the 2018 Cyber Truck Challenge. This challenge has been established to help develop the next generation workforce by bringing awareness, excitement, professional involvement, and practicum based training to the heavy vehicle cyber domain. Cyber security awareness and action is critical as electrification and connectivity grows across the industry and we are working to establish a community of interest for heavy vehicle cyber that transcends individual companies or departments and reaches across disciplines and organizations to make a more universal and experienced base of engineers and managers. The event is being held at Macomb Community College in Warren, Michigan. More than 35 students from all over the country will be participating in 2 days of instruction, 2 days of cyber security assessment on 5 medium and heavy duty trucks , followed by student report out presentations.
