Version 1.5b Castle in the Sky
lecture: The exhaust emissions scandal („Dieselgate“)
Take a deep breath into pollution trickery
Analysis of the emission scandal shaking the German automotive industry from a procedural, organizational and technical level. Includes insight into cheating for advanced managers and code extraction from ECUs from Ebay. And from Volkswagen. Initially.
The exhaust emission scandal has visibly shaken the confidence auto buyers put into the German automotive industry.
The details are – half a year after Volkswagen managers confessed to fraud – scarce, very scare.
Both around the procedural and the technical details of the betrayal. Daniel will show how engineering a Electronic Control Unit (ECU) works, and how many people are involved.
And he will take a look at the revealing communication from the affected parties. That try to share nothing with many words but still reveal a few interesting details.
Felix takes the other approach and looks at body of evidence that 8+ million people have access to but too few took a closer look.
He will share the tricks to extract the firmware from the affected engine control units and share the findings he made along the way and when he looked at the plain and honest truth in code.
