The SMART Range will function as a living lab within a smart-city environment encompassing all aspects of future mobility systems, including public transportation, private vehicles and personal mobility devices. The range will simulate a complex reality and enable effective testing of advanced technologies, assessment of human-machine-environment interfaces, evaluation of transport solutions in a future networked reality and operability and robustness testing of software and hardware systems against cyber threats.

“Autonomous driving will not succeed without a strong cyber security infrastructure that protects our cars, devices and roadways from dangerous intrusions, and no one organization can meet the everchanging technology requirements that connectivity will demand. This collaboration brings together leading players in cyber security in the leading region for this work – Israel - to test and develop valuable standards that will benefit multiple industries and ultimately society,” said Saar Dickman, VP, Automotive Cyber Security at HARMAN.

The Range will feature the unique ability to combine the highest-level practical knowledge possessed by leading commercial firms together with advanced academic research. This cooperation between commercial and academic stakeholders will enable the center to further its main objectives:

  • Promotion of innovation in the smart mobility arena
  • Advancement of global regulation in the field of cybersecurity for smart mobility systems
  • Cybersecurity certification for smart mobility software and hardware systems
  • Global leadership in the definition, assessment and verification of the resilience of smart mobility systems to cyber threats

“The SMART Range represents a natural stride forward in light of the University’s broad and diverse research activities in the fields of technology, autonomous robotics, information technology and cybersecurity, while fulfilling the University’s role as a leader in developing innovation and excellence in Beer-Sheva,” said Prof. Rivka Carmi, President, Ben-Gurion University.

The new SMART Range initiative was previously announced during the National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM), an annual campaign to raise awareness about the importance of cybersecurity to engage and educate public and private sector partners through various events and initiatives. HARMAN works across legislators, academia, and the automotive industry to further the dialogue about cybersecurity and highlight the broader impact on the safety of vehicle occupants and pedestrians alike, as society moves towards a connected and then autonomous vehicle future.

HARMAN is also a member of the Automotive Information Sharing and Analysis Center (ISAC), the industry organization which acts as a central resource for gathering information on cyber threats to the automotive industry and providing two-way sharing of information between the private and public sector.

At the December Auto ISAC Summit, HARMAN vice president of R&D for Automotive Cyber Security, Yuval Weisglass, will deliver a talk alongside other industry executives from General Motors, Ford, Fiat Chrysler, Volkswagen, as well as representatives from the State of Michigan and the National Highway Transportation Safety Association.
