How to Spoof Someone’s GPS Navigation to Send Them The Wrong Way

Researchers have for the first time demonstrated that it’s possible to spoof turn-by-turn GPS road navigation to send users to specific wrong locations. Although generalised spoofing attacks on GPS are well-understood – using false signals to confuse targets or send them off course in places such as the high seas – precisely controlling where they […]

Here’s What’s Needed for Self-Flying Taxis and Delivery Drones to Really Take Off

Amazon, Uber and other tech giants want to fill the skies with small autonomous aircraft ferrying packages and people from place to place. For that to happen, these robotic drones—also called unmanned aircraft systems (UASs)—need an air traffic control system to keep them from crashing into buildings, human-piloted aircraft or one another. NASA is developing […]
