Will cyber crime kill the autonomous car?

Could cyber criminals render the autonomous vehicle agenda untenable? It’s possible: this is the conclusion of Automotive World’s latest special report. The increasing vehicular connectivity pivotal to self-driving technology will also expose cars to the same risks which all connected devices face, opening up opportunities for ransomware and data theft.

More worrying still is the potential for hijackings and malicious harm, which could destroy public confidence in AVs altogether. Yet automakers and their partners are acutely aware of the danger, and are already dedicating efforts to secure the AV. ‘Special report: will cyber crime kill the autonomous car?’ explores these efforts, along with other crucial questions, such as who is likely to target vehicles, and what action will regulators take to enshrine safety.

In this report:

‘Special report: will cyber crime kill the autonomous car?’ presents insight from:

Xilinx and Continental Collaborate to Create Auto Industry’s First Production-Ready 4D Imaging Radar for Autonomous Driving | Region

SAN JOSE, Calif. & HANNOVER, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Sep 23, 2020–

Xilinx, Inc. (NASDAQ: XLNX) and Continental today announced that Xilinx will power Continental’s new Advanced Radar Sensor (ARS) 540 with the Zynq ® UltraScale+™ MPSoC platform, creating the automotive industry’s first production-ready 4D imaging radar. The collaboration enables newly-produced vehicles equipped with the ARS540 to realize SAE J3016 Level 2 functionalities and will pave the way toward Level 5 autonomous driving systems.

This press release features multimedia. View the full release here: https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20200923005176/en/

4D imaging radar determines an object’s location in range, azimuth, elevation, and relative speed to provide detailed information about the driving environment not provided by earlier automotive radar systems that capture only speed and azimuth. Continental’s ARS540 is a premium, long-range 4D imaging radar with high resolution and 300-meter range. Its wide, ± 60° field-of-view enables multi-hypothesis tracking for precise prediction while driving, which is critical for managing

What Happens When Your AI Autonomous Car Gets Bored Anticipating Your Next Excursion?

In the future there is no doubt that we will have autonomous vehicles, cars that drive themselves, not only cars but buses, trucks, and perhaps even motorcycles. We already have trains, and aircraft which fly themselves, this will only become more common in those realms. Still, for autonomous vehicles to really do all that we perceive they will in the future, they will have to have more artificial intelligence, faster processing computers, and all of that will need to update itself from the cloud several times a day.

Of course, with all that information these computers will become self-actualized, they will feel as if they have a mind of their own, and much like the Internet they will appear to be thinking, adapting, and changing to the conditions in the real world in real time, even if most of their components were originally created for a virtual or augmented world. … Read More
