Trend Micro hacks drone-making robotic 3D printer to demonstrate security risks

The potential dangers of robotics technology in industry were recently demonstrated with the aid of a robotic arm intended to design a 3D printed rotor for a drone. The robotic arm was successfully hacked and controlled remotely by a group of researchers from Trend Micro, highlighting the ease with which industrial processes can be reprogrammed and the potentially harmful consequences of implementing automated technology like 3D printing and robotics. Pioneering technology company ABB’s IRB140 industrial robot can be used to draw straight lines as part of a 3D design process. This is a relatively simple task, but more complex […]
