Automation and Connectivity

Roberto Montanari, Elisa Landini, Aura Tardia


Car manufacturers are addressing research and innovation efforts towards the development of safe and efficient autonomous vehicles. Although not fully mature, the technology for such vehicles exists already. One of the main features on board such vehicles is connectivity. Connectivity ensures that the car is not only collecting data on the passengers, the environment, the infrastructure, the other vehicles (using e.g. different types of sensors), but it is also able to share this information within the network in real time in order to provide better service. Although state-of-the-art measures are employed to ensure security of the data and of the car itself, the possibility remains for hackers to violate the system and data breaches to occur.
