Six Ways to Protect Against Autonomous Vehicle Cyber Attacks

Today, it’s relatively easy for cyber criminals to hack into connected vehicles. The reason being that they only need to exploit a single vulnerability within an autonomous car to gain access to the operating system—and possibly the entire network.  Demonstrating Autonomous Vehicle Cyber Attacks There are a number of examples demonstrating these vulnerabilities. In 2015, […]

Creating Safer Interconnected Vehicles

Even today’s most sophisticated interconnected vehicles aren’t immune to cyber attacks. At the 2020 Black Hat Conference, a group of security researchers from the company Qihoo 360 demonstrated how they can hack a Mercedes-Benz E-Class car and remotely start its engine and open its doors. How Did They Do It? Using a testbench, the research […]

U.N. Announces New Cyber Security Regulation for Connected Vehicles

A new United Nations regulation will soon require vehicle makers in jurisdictions in Japan, South Korea, and the European Union to secure connected vehicles from cyber security threats. In June, 53 countries adopted an agreement that requires national regulators to guarantee vehicles are adequately protected against potential cyber security attacks. The agreement also requires manufacturers […]

Student Research Team Create Prototype of Secure Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) Communications System 

Autonomous vehicles have the potential to reduce traffic accidents. However, without proper security features that would protect them from hackers who seek to control them remotely—or from roadside vandals who might confuse them by damaging roadway infrastructure such as stop signs—autonomous vehicles could still pose threats. With public safety in mind, many experts have called […]

Autonomous Trucks and Other Vehicles Turn Towards Delivery Services

The need to socially distance during the COVID-19 pandemic is causing many autonomous vehicle manufacturers to slam the brakes on automated taxi services. However, the pandemic has created new opportunities for companies to shift their focus to transporting food and goods via delivery services provided in methods ranging from autonomous trucks, vans, and drones, to […]

How Can Autonomous Vehicles Be Protected Against Cyber Security Threats?

While autonomous vehicles are expected to be far less prone to accidents than driver-controlled vehicles once they’ve undergone substantial training, they may pose a more serious threat. Due to the over-the-air hardware and software updates these vehicles routinely require, experts believe they have the potential to easily come under attack from hackers who can use […]

Researchers Make Breakthroughs in Autonomous Vehicle Systems

In recent years, autonomous vehicles have made significant progress. Waymo, a subsidiary of Google’s parent company Alphabet, recently incorporated its next-generation hardware sensor system into its Jaguar I-Pace vehicles. The company will use the system to collect data for training machine-learning models. In March, General Motors announced plans to invest over $20 billion USD through […]

Autonomous Vehicle Developers Prepare for a Long Road to Autonomy 

Across the world, autonomous vehicles are revving up, but the journey to full autonomy is likely to be long. According to current estimates, these vehicles will need to undergo at least 11 billion miles of on-the-road training before they can match the capabilities of human drivers. Not only will autonomous vehicle technology (AV) development take […]
