Researchers at Mitsubishi Electric have developed sensor-security technology for detecting inconsistencies in sensor measurements when a system is under attack.

The technology was designed to counter the danger posed by sensor-based automatic control technology that is now used in hundreds of applications, such as vehicle accident prevention, agricultural monitoring, and self-balancing robots.

Said Mitsubishi Electric's Takeshi Yoneda, "Until now, it was thought that sensor fusion algorithms were robust and could not easily be attacked because they integrate data from several sensors."

Yoneda added the detector algorithm is compact (just a few dozen lines of code), which means "We can implement it at low cost, because there is no need to modify the hardware."
