R.O.O.T. - Ability to remotely control vehicle braking (Available to Law Enforcement ONLY)

In 2012 Wireless Secured conducted automobile cyber security research, specifically vulnerability assessments on how a vehicle's on-board computer communicates with the micro controllers used to electronically control a car. Our results were shocking, and now everyone on our team thinks twice about getting into a modern car.

Out of the dozens of things we were able to do, like turn the heater on full blast, control the volume level of the radio, change the speed displayed on the dash board, and even disable to brakes to crash the car, we found one practical application for Law Enforcement.

We could remotely control the breaking mechanisms in modern cars. Thus the R.O.O.T. project was born.

Wireless Secured is currently working on this device named R.O.O.T (Remote Operation of Transportation) that will completely eliminate high speed chases, improve law enforcement officer safety and allow more criminals to be apprehended without incident.

Our device allows a law enforcement officer to remotely access the on-board computer system of a modern car, send a signal to engage the breaking discs using a directional antenna, and incapacitate the vehicle, stopping the criminal from fleeing the crime scene.

Proof of concept research has already been conducted and implemented successfully. This product is expected to be available to law enforcement agencies by late 2014.
