The October 2021 edition of SAE Truck & Off-Highway Engineering Magazine published a nice article on the CyberTruck Challenge after the organizers discussed the event on a panel.


Recap of the 2021 Event

During the week of 16 August 2021, 39 students from 18 different universities were able to learn about heavy vehicle cybersecurity while performing hands-on assessments of 7 different trucks, 3 testbeds, and a trailer. The event was hosted by the Macomb Community College in Warren, Michigan and 3 of the four manufacturers of Class 8 heavy trucks brought engineers to help mentor students.

Details of the 2021 event are available on a separate page. This includes a photo gallery and instructor presentations.

The students gave presentations on Friday morning with their findings during the week. All sponsors indicated the CyberTruck was valuable, so we anticipate hosting the event in 2022! Please sign up for the mailing list to stay informed.
