The Wireless Networks Group (WNG) at the UPC participates in CARAMEL, a European project whose main objective is to respond to current cybersecurity challenges of connected vehicles, through advanced technologies of Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning.

To achieve this, various types of vehicles will be considered (cooperative, connected, autonomous and electric), and new methods and solutions will be sought to reduce the cybersecurity risks associated with each of them.

Although protocols currently exist to guarantee security, vehicle connectivity, autonomous driving systems and smart charging of electric vehicles introduce new cybersecurity breaches that should be tackled.


 

As part of CARAMEL, intrusion detection system (IDS)/intrusion prevention system (IPS) products will be developed as well as advanced technologies and services to manage complex cyberattacks and reduce potential damage. In addition, new interoperable, scalable ICT infrastructure will be designed to provide sustainable cybernetic security and digital privacy.

Cybersecurity is one of the four most serious global risks that we are facing, according to the World Economic Forum in Davos at the start of 2018. In 2020, experts predict that 20 billion devices will be connected, which will doubtless lead to a higher number of cybernetic attacks.

The pilot tests of CARAMEL will be carried out in Karlsruhe, and they are scheduled in January 2022.

The CARAMEL project has received funding of 5 million euros from the Horizon 2020 programme of the European Union and will be executed over 30 months (October 2019 to March 2022). The project is coordinated by i2CAT and has 14 other participating members from 8 European countries (Germany, Spain, Cyprus, Portugal, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, Greece and Austria).
