Popular Science names two Brooklyn technologies among top 100 inventions of 2017

Cybersecurity from NYU's Uptane and decentralized cell network goTenna make the list.

Two new technologies born in Downtown Brooklyn made Popular Science magazine’s list of top inventions for 2017. Uptane, a cybersecurity for cars project out of NYU Tandon, and goTenna, a decentralized cell network technology were listed in the magazine’s Best of What’s New feature. … Uptane is the work of NYU Tandon professor Justin Cappos and collaborators from the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI) and the Southwest Research Institute (SWRI). It’s an attempt to figure out how, in a world of autonomous cars, we maintain cybersecurity good enough so those cars aren’t getting hacked and driven off the road for ransom.
