With 100 million lines of code and counting (that’s 40% more code than runs Facebook) and 100 million electronic control units, the modern automobile presents challenges for developers and opportunity for hackers. In its eighth year, the 2019 SAE CyberAuto Challenge™ brings together all of the players—from researchers, hackers, engineers, and aspiring students—at this groundbreaking event in automotive cybersecurity.
