DG’s Mark Pope Awards SAE Collegiate Cup to SVSU

FRANKENMUTH, Mich. April 5, 2024 DG Technologies product specialist and education coordinator Mark Pope was in Frankenmuth in February and awarded the winning mid-Michigan school with the Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) Collegiate Cup.

The cup is presented each year at the SAE Mid-Michigan’s National Engineers Week Annual Banquet and Meeting to the team that places highest in the SAE Collegiate Chapter Project Presentation Competition at the annual meeting. The event’s competition is judged based on the quality of the oral presentation of the teams’ “Design Series” projects, with top honors this year going to Saginaw Valley State University.

Attendees and judges saw presentations by Central Michigan and Kettering universities’ teams for their BAJA SAE Series, in which each team designed and built a prototype of an all-weather, rugged, single-seat, off road recreational vehicle for competition this fall. Students from Central Michigan, Kettering and Saginaw Valley State universities gave presentations on their work in the Formula SAE Series, for which they conceived, designed, fabricated and developed small formula-style vehicles for competition this May. And students from Kettering presented on their participation, in partnership with General Motors, for the AutoDrive Challenge, in which they developed a full autonomous driving passenger vehicle to navigate an urban driving course this summer.

“They actually use what they learn in the classroom to build these vehicles,” Pope said of the student competitors. Pope, one of many at DG Technologies who volunteers time and expertise with SAE, organized and presided over the banquet meeting this year.

Pope noted that companies hire students from these competitions because they know the students already have training and experience. “They know they can hit the ground running,” he said.

DG Technologies works in association with many domestic and foreign original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), and tier 1 and 2 suppliers to the automotive, heavy-duty, agriculture, off-road, cybersecurity, military and recreational vehicle transportation markets and has a long affiliation with SAE International, the American Trucking Association’s Technology & Maintenance Council (TMC) and tier 1 and 2 supplier organizations. The company is a leading provider of secure aftermarket diagnostic products, engineering development tools and heavy-duty vehicle digital forensics. In 2019, DG Technologies’ parent company, the Dearborn Group Inc., acquired Synercon Technologies, which specializes in vehicle crash data extraction. Zachos runs both companies from his offices in Farmington Hills, Mich.

DG Technologies President Talks Cybersecurity at National Trucking Meeting

NEW ORLEANS, March 8, 2024 – Mark Zachos, president of DG Technologies, was in New Orleans this week leading the conversation on cybersecurity in the trucking industry for the American Trucking Associations’ Technology & Maintenance Council’s (TMC) Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition.

Zachos, an expert in the fields of in-vehicle communications and vehicle cybersecurity, is the chair of TMC’s Cybersecurity Issues Task Force, a position he has held for the last five years. He and DG Technologies design technology for in-vehicle networks in the automotive and trucking industries, including secure diagnostics, reprogramming and data extraction devices and tools. A Society of Automotive Engineers (SAE) fellow and past chairman of SAE’s Detroit Section, Zachos also teaches at University of Detroit Mercy and is the director of the school’s Vehicle Cyber Engineering Lab, which he helped create.

Mark Zachos speaks at the TMC Annual Meeting in New Orleans

The Cybersecurity Issues Task Force was commissioned this week with looking at exploring preventive cybersecurity methods, developing guidelines for fleets to create their own cybersecurity programs, standardizing over-the-air engine control module (ECM) programming through specific protocols that allow fail safe options and secure messaging, working with other associations to strengthen related standards by fleet user influence and examining the development of a reporting and responding alert program for industry users.

Cyber threats come in many forms and with varying motives, Zachos said. Some cyber criminals are looking for private or proprietary data to sell on the dark net or to leverage as ransom from companies, while in other cases, the threats might originate from another country’s efforts to undermine the United States’ logistical systems or infrastructure.

Zachos explained that while cybersecurity on the I.T. side of many companies often is tight, the potential threats on the maintenance side are not as well understood. “It’s kind of new ground,” he said.

“The idea is that in a truck you have the electronic control units communicating with each other,” he explained. “The bad guys know they have the technology to listen to that communication and to reverse engineer it, and maybe inject something into that communication stream that disrupts the operation of your vehicle. And it may not be a shutdown event it may be just something to slow you down, something to make your business a lot more inefficient.”

But it also could cause an entire fleet to shut down, he said, and there are still many in the industry who don’t believe it can happen to them. So, Zachos continues to work – through TMC, other industry organizations, the University of Detroit Mercy and his own company – to inform, educate, create products and help set industry standards in efforts to identify and head off cyberattacks before they can cause damage.

“There are always new recommended practices that are presented, discussed and balloted, and all of us look forward to offering our ideas that will improve maintenance in the industry,” DG Technologies sales and marketing manager John McNelis said of this week’s TMC meeting and exhibition. “DG Technologies plays a key role in offering expert information that is used to create new industry standards,” McNelis said.

TMC’s annual spring meeting and exhibition draw more than 5,000 leaders in commercial vehicle transportation, including presidents and CEOs, senior maintenance and equipment executives, directors of maintenance, fleet managers and other key decision makers. TMC bills the event, held March 4-7 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, as the premier technical conference for maximizing fleet performance and efficiency in the trucking industry, calling it “the one-stop shop for fleet education, supported by the industry’s only member-driven best practices.”

DG Technologies was in booth 3832 for the event, which ran from March 4th-7th, 2024

DG Technologies, which Zachos started more than 35 years ago, also had a booth at the event. McNelis said the exhibition gives him the opportunity each year to talk up new hardware and software that will join the company’s catalog, which currently includes the DPA XL heavy-duty diagnostics device and Synercon Forensic Link Adapter crash data extracting tool, “and how these new products and services can optimize truck maintenance and uptime.”

Mike Jewell, DG Technologies’ senior sales engineer said he looks forward to the event for the chance to continue marketing and promoting the company to further grow brand awareness and to maintain and grow its reputation as a trusted source for vehicle technology. “It’s also important to attend because it allows DG to learn firsthand what’s going on from industry leaders and also to influence it with our expertise and product know-how,” he said.

Mark Zachos at the SAE Government/Industry Meeting in Washington, DC

Mark Zachos with SAE CEO
DG Technologies President Mark Zachos attended the SAE Government Industry Meeting in Washington, DC.  

DG Technologies president Mark Zachos was in Washington, D.C., Jan. 16-18, 2024, for the Society of Automotive Engineer’s (SAE) Government/Industry Meeting. Held annually in conjunction with the Washington, DC Auto Show, the SAE forum brings together representatives from regulatory agencies and the auto industry to give them an opportunity to work to find mutual understanding and set industry standards on issues including safety, security, emissions control and energy for future vehicle design.

Zachos, an SAE fellow who is also past president of the Detroit Section of the organization, attended the conference’s National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) Cyber Workshop, which covered the safety and vulnerability of advanced driver-assistance systems (ADAS). Participating in the Government/Industry Meeting every year “gives our company insight and understanding where those future regulations might affect our business and our customers, and from that, DG can enhance our products and services,” he said.

DG Technologies’ trusted DPA XL and VSI NxGen diagnostic and reprogramming tools are examples of how Zachos’s involvement in events like the Government/Industry Meeting benefit the company as well as the industry.

“From the relationships we build there, I know who’s who in government agencies and they know me and SAE,” said Zachos, who also teaches at University of Detroit Mercy where he helped create and continues to serve as director of the Vehicle Cyber Engineering Lab. “It helps in working together.”

The DPA XL and VSI NxGen both feature DG Technologies’ own CyberGuard cybersecurity protection as well as adhere to J2534, an SAE-designed interface standard that is mandated by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for vehicle electronic control unit (ECU) reprogramming. According to SAE International, this standard “provides the framework to allow reprogramming software applications from all vehicle manufacturers the flexibility to work with multiple vehicle data link interface tools from multiple tool suppliers. This system enables each vehicle manufacturer to control the programming sequence for ECUs in their vehicles, but allows a single set of programming hardware and vehicle interface (tools) to be used to program modules for all vehicle manufacturers.”

With DG Technologies’ work focused on cybersecurity, diagnostics and engineering to benefit the technicians and engineers who use our products, the company continues to emphasize standards participation to help drive the automotive and truck industry forward. In addition to Zachos, several other DG employees are also involved directly with SAE, volunteering their time and expertise to serve on the SAE committees that generate those standards.

Regulations that come out of government, said Zachos, noting NHTSA and truck emissions regulations as examples, “all correspond in some way or another to SAE standards.”

Mark Zachos at ETI Winter Tech Week

ETI Winter Tech Week

With DG Technologies’ trusted line of secure diagnostic and engineering tools, like VSI NxGen for cars and Beacon for Developers, company president Mark Zachos made it a priority to be at ETI’s annual Winter Tech Week.

Zachos was in Torrance, Calif., last week for the event, organized by the Equipment and Tool Institute (ETI) and the Japanese Automobile Manufacturers Association to communicate new information, technologies and tool requirements for servicing current models and future vehicles.

He said being at Winter Tech Week is beneficial to “stay current with vehicle maintenance technology including potential regulations both in the U.S. and abroad.”

The event each year gives attendees an opportunity to meet and collaborate with OEMs, engineers, service tool providers, regulators and designers.

The main focus for us at DG Technologies is to actively participate to ensure that our tools, equipment and information are available to repair shops by the time the new models hit the streets. Through OEM presentations, panel discussions and hands-on demonstrations, industry professionals discuss the upcoming service needs of new makes and models, and the changes necessary in the tool and equipment industry to meet those needs.

Current DG Technologies customers that participate include AVL, Burke Porter, Continental, Denso, Hino, Honda, Isuzu, Matco, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Mitsubishi Fuso, Nissan, Subaru (Fuji Heavy Industries), Suzuki Toyota and Kia.

DG Technologies supplies products to both vehicle manufacturers and aftermarket companies and the event is a great way to confirm that our products are out in front of any changes coming and to help confirm they work with all vehicles.

While he was in town for the event, Zachos was able to visit the American Honda Collection Hall at Honda’s U.S. headquarters in Torrance. “The new Honda Museum was outstanding,” Zachos said.

According to Motor Trend Magazine, the collection, which opened this fall after being stored for the last 20 years in an undisclosed warehouse and continually added to by American Honda staffers, “might be the best-worst kept secret in the California car scene.”
