[T]he practical information on automotive networks and protocols is invaluable. Not only are many of the protocols poorly documented (if at all) elsewhere, but many of them are in the "legacy code" bin: companies have moved on and have no interest in continuing to discuss them, but car owners still own a lot of the systems and will for many years to come.
At a little more fundamental level, though, the book also works as an introduction to car computer systems for those who are already experienced hacking other types of devices. And it addresses the various security issues and approaches without assuming too much prior engineering experience, which should make the book useful for shade-tree mechanics with little hacking experience, too. A reader cannot learn how to reverse-engineer ECU firmware in a single chapter, but Smith puts that task in context, explains when it is necessary, and puts the reader on the right path forward. All things considered, that is what one wants from a hacker's handbook."
These beautiful 145m–high twin office towers located in Abu Dhabi have a mechanical "skin" of 2,000 umbrella-like glass elements controlled by computers that automatically open and close depending on the intensity of sunlight, eliminating by at least 50% of the sun’s heat from entering the buildings.
