CAESAREA, Israel, June 25, 2019 / PRNewswire / – infiniDome Ltd., the Wireless Security Company, held a live demonstration of GPS interference / spoofing protection for a self-driving autonomous car on June 11 at the EcoMotion Main Event at The Centerpiece of the international future mobility conference, the EcoMotion Week 2019.
In the demonstration, the BWR self-driving car was operating in the conference demo center when a nearby handheld gps jammer was activated and the navigation functions of the autonomous car were deactivated. Then infiniDome CTO could easily connect the GPSdome protection solution, and the same autonomous car with the same GPS system could not only detect the jamming attack, but also maintain the GPS signal and navigation functions during the jamming attack.
“In our live demo, we presented our proven solution for protecting GPS-based systems from nuisance attacks from major players in the industry, some of which are key partners with DRIVE (the automotive accelerator in TLV to which we are a part),” said Omer Sharar, CEO of infiniDome. “The competitive advantage of our cyber solution is that the GPS signal is preserved during these attacks. Unlike the competition, our approach is not only to detect the attacks, but also to protect them. We strongly believe that the autonomous car cannot stop by the side of. ” The road, when attacked, must go on. ”
“The EW (Electronic Warfare) approach of our GPSdome protection is a breakthrough in the field of autonomous cars,” said Moshe Kaplan, CTO of infiniDome. “We are advancing our technology to fully protect the autonomous car from interference and spoofing attacks from other wireless communications it depends on, such as 5.9 GHz (used for V2X communications) and its cellular connection to the world.”
“GPSdome is field-tested and is supplied to numerous customers around the world,” said Ehud Sharar, President of infiniDome. “Our commercial product is a technology that will allow the industry to continue to rely on the availability of GPS for navigation, sensor fusion and V2X that simply won’t work without GPS.”
infiniDome Ltd. offers front-end cyber solutions that protect wireless communication from interference and spoofing attacks. The company’s first product, GPSdome, protects against interference and spoofing of GPS-based systems, which are critical to autonomous vehicles, drones and connected fleets. GPSdome has proven itself in the field and is sold to customers worldwide.
