Automotive Industry Cybersecurity Assurance Testing Methods and Tools

In Conjunction with SAEIn 2015 the automotive industry began discussing the need for consistent cybersecurity testing requirements for verifying and validating that the security controls being implemented in modern automobiles are indeed providing a measurable level of cybersecurity assurance. These discussions eventually led to the formation of the Cybersecurity Assurance Testing Task Force under SAE, which is comprised of members from the automobile OEM community, suppliers, cybersecurity testing experts, government officials, and general security experts. Since inception the task force has worked diligently and has drafted multiple working documents. This 30-minute Webinar provides an overview of the working group’s activities and progress.

Can algorithms create a pop-music hit?

This week's Question: Sony Computer Science Laboratory (CSL) in Paris is developing a system of algorithms which can create songs that cater to the user's taste, based on styles adapted from existing music. Starting with a sheet-music database of more than 13,000 existing songs, users choose several titles with the sound or feel that they would like the new song to incorporate.

New GASOMETER Design Uses Active Accommodation Offering Significant Improvements Vs. Liquid-sealed Methods

Active Accommodation means using a precision controlled and driven cylinder/piston assembly to collect and measure gas sample volumes without requiring energy to be extracted from the process that generates the gas. The mechanism uses lubricated O-Rings to seal the measuring chamber unlike classical Wet Test Meters that require a water or oil bath to produce an isolation seal.

Entry-Level PXI/PXIe Platforms

ADLINK Technology (San Jose, CA) announced new entry-level PXI and PXI Express (PXIe) platforms for PXI testing system startup users. PXES-2301 is an all-hybrid, 6-slot compact PXIe chassis with system bandwidth up to 8 GB/s. PXIe-3935 and PXI-3930 are embedded controllers with Intel® Celeron® 2000E 2.2GHz processors, delivering up to 50% increase in computing power and as much as eight times the bandwidth of available market offerings. ADLINK's PXIe-3935 and PXI-3930 significantly reduce maintenance burdens with easily replaceable battery and upgradable storage and SODIMM modules. Backup BIOS also eases recovery in the event of a main BIOS crash.Click here to learn more

Scientists Find Twisting 3-D Electron Raceway in Nanoscale Crystal Slices

A scanning electron microscope image shows triangular (red) and rectangular (blue) samples of a semimetal crystal known as cadmium arsenide. The rectangular sample is about 0.8 microns (thousandths of a millimeter) thick, 3.2 microns tall and 5 microns long. The design of the triangular samples proved useful in mapping out the strange electron orbits exhibited by this material when exposed to a magnetic field. (Credit: Nature, 10.1038/nature18276) Researchers have created an exotic 3-D racetrack for electrons in ultrathin slices of a nanomaterial they fabricated at the Department of Energy’s Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab). The international team of scientists from Berkeley Lab, UC Berkeley, and Germany observed, for the first time, a unique behavior in which electrons rotate around one surface, then through the bulk of the material to its opposite surface and back.
