Robot Immune System

Project description

Building up robot immunity to cyberattacks

Robots are playing an increasing role in daily life, in both the domestic and industrial sectors. The role of robots in the transition of the industry to automation is instrumental. However, robots are vulnerable to cyberattacks, which means companies are exposed to financial losses, industrial espionage and limited safety. The reason is that cybersecurity issues have been largely ignored in this area. Coordinated by ALIAS ROBOTICS, the EU-funded RIS project considers a shield against cyberthreats indispensable for robots. The Robot Immune System (RIS) refers to the hardware created by the company. By emulating the human immune system, it prevents cyberattacks that try to exploit the robot’s vulnerabilities.
