Kiyotaka Atsumi pursued his PhD from Toyohashi University of Technology, Japan. He is currently the Director of IoT Technology Laboratory of LAC Co Ltd, Japan, the oldest security vendor in Japan. Currently, he is engaged in research of managed security service for connected-cars and of the threat analysis on model-based development for IoT.


We propose a new IPS (Intrusion Prevention System) for CAN BUS, one of the popular in-vehicle network. This shape is like a cable with connectors. We call it "Smart CAN Cable." The most important function of Smart CAN Cable is to find a compromised ECU (Electronic Control Units) who sends an illegal message on CAN BUS. A CSIRT (Computer Security Incidence Response Team) must identify a compromised computer and/or network systems at first when they detect that an attacker crack the system. In an office environment, it is to identify a compromised laptop by tracing an IP address. There is a need to solve the cybersecurity problem and to take down the attacker. Many ideas of IDS for CAN BUS were already proposed. Most of them can only detect anomaly CAN message, and they cannot identify which ECU is compromised because any ECUs cannot identify the ECU who sends illegal messages because of the specification of CAN protocol. The Smart CAN cable has two kinds of functions. One is to identify an illegal message; another is to memorize and identify a sender ECU when it sends a message. This paper shows how the Smart CAN cable works, and its advantages and disadvantages.

Lara A Carlson is currently an Associate Professor in the Department of Physical Therapy at the University of New England, Maine (USA). She is also a faculty appointment with the US Department of Veterans Affairs. She is a US ranked hammer thrower qualifying for four USA Outdoor Track and Field National Championships. She is a Fellow of the American College of Sports Medicine; a Recipient of the New England ACSM (NEACSM) Honor Award and was elected President of the NEACSM for an unprecedented second term in their history. Her research interests include the effects of exercise on immune responses, and motorsports physiology.


Race car drivers are highly skilled athletes who experience tremendous physical challenges during high-speed racing. Drivers are also exposed to significant G forces and high ambient temperatures for long periods of time with no timeouts. All of this is complicated by the fact that they are also encapsulated in protective gear and clothing. Furthermore, fluid losses during competitive racing can be significant. Without a fluid replacement strategy, fluid losses for these drivers may exceed three percent body weight, which could negatively impact driving performance. Research has been established in other sports to show the detrimental impact thermal stress and fluid loss can have on athletic performance, especially by straining the cardiovascular system. Similar effects are likely during races where drivers need to circulate blood efficiently to dissipate heat, ward off fatigue to maintain their ability to mentally concentrate and rely on quick reaction times and precise hand-eye coordination. And much of this, including G tolerance to some degree, is adaptable by systematic physical training and preparedness. Advocacy is warranted to ensure the sports medicine and motorsports communities are doing all they can to protect the drivers and pit crew athletes. Like other serious competitors, motorsports athletes are looking for sound advice to improve their performance. Sports medicine professionals are poised to offer a great deal of expertise to offer motorsports athletes who face similar (dehydration, thermal strain) and unique (G-forces) challenges compared to other sports.
