Mobile Machine Operation in Underground Networks and the Security Question

Andreas Noack, Christoph Müller

escar'10 - 8th conference on Embedded Security in Cars, Bremen, Germany


Automation and mobile machine operation become more and more usual in special industries like underground mining. However, with an increasing grade of automation there comes also the demand for a higher security. In this paper, we discuss the security question for such applications and present a practical example of an underground monorail automation that embeds the security question deeply into its network concept.
