Maybe if I were an avid NASCAR fan I would understand the reason for all the security issues surrounding the processor. Why should the software controlling engine performance be considered differently than the many mechanical tweaks used to outperform competitors? Engine performance ultimately hinges on the mechanical design anyway, so software changes can only go so far to improve performance until the track is littered with pistons.

Way to lead the way NASCAR! Quote: Carburetors were the usual fuel delivery method for most U.S. made gasoline-fueled engines up until the late 1980s, when fuel injection became the preferred method of automotive fuel delivery. In the U.S. market, the last carbureted cars were: * 1990 (General public) : Oldsmobile Custom Cruiser, Buick Estate Wagon * 1991 (Police) : Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptor with the 5.8 L (351 cu in) engine. * 1991 (SUV) : Jeep Grand Wagoneer with the AMC 360 engine. * 1994 (Light truck) : Isuzu

Interesting. Technology of NASCAR has moved from car companies to OEM. Good one for both. Let us know who makes what injection chips on the cars.

What a great move on the part of NASCAR! I wonder what type of innovations we will see as a result of the switch to fuel injection? Nice partnership deal with Freescale as well, I am sure the marketing group is ecstatic. When will we get more details on the engine performance changes now with the new system? Looking forward to the new more realistic racing platforms.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
