I just talked about hacking vehicular networks at Hackaday Uncon in Dublin, a meeting of the hacker/maker community. I enjoyed many presentations today – it’s really amazing what people are working on. My favorite talks were about a self-made electric motor bike and the security of smart meters.

I presented OpenC2X, a full Open Source communication stack for IEEE 802.11p, i.e., WLAN for cars. It was recently ported to OpenWrt, allowing it to run on a 30EUR AP. This makes it accessible for everyone. Think of it as a WiFi Pineapple for vehicular networks.

Here, you can see a TP-Link WDR3600 AP transmitting at 5.9GHz with 10MHz bandwidth. You can checkout the code on GitHub.
