Robot Security, Internet, Viruses and Hackers

Kenn's picture

Hello All,

I have been thinking about my robots security and how I have seen people hacking into cars and driving them away. I have also seen how many people are connecting their robots to the internet to ask what the weather is, what the sports score is and so on. Plus they now passed a law that allows IP's to sell your privat info. And lets not forget about the Cloud it's out there some where I don't know.

So the question is do I really need or want my robot to be connected to the internet or wifi?

Hello Everyone,

Kind of new at this even though I made my account a while ago.

I wanted to know if anyone has tried the new ODROID-C2 and if they where able to get myrobotlab working on it? I believe the OS is Ubuntu Mate 16.04 on kernel 3.14
