The second edition of the Hack My Robot Challenge! It is a part of #CSAW, the most comprehensive student-run #cybersecurity event in the world!

The challenge aims to raise awareness about the cybersecurity aspects of increasingly #digitalizedconstruction environments with a particular focus on robotics. This year’s focus is on autonomous excavators, which could cause critical safety issues if compromised. Students who want to learn more about operational technology security, robotics, and construction technologies are invited to attend!

The challenge is exclusive to universities in the #MENA region and is a part of CSAW MENA that takes place at New York University Abu Dhabi (NYUAD). The finalist teams will be invited to NYUAD for the final round during CSAW’23 (8-11 November).

This challenge is organized by the S.M.A.R.T. Construction Research Group with the support and collaboration of the Center for Cybersecurity (CCS) at NYUAD and the Center for AI and Robotics (CAIR) at NYUAD.

Registration is open to all undergraduate and graduate students from the MENA region!
