Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
Susan: True, terorists already do these nasty things but it takes more elaborate planning now. WIth connected systems in place, they will have the "table set" for them. Also it opens up the opportunity for mischevious kids to prank innocent people. I aam all for technology moving forward, I am just thinking of the multitude of nasty people who look for opportunities to exploit it.

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
Broadway, exactly. Most people have a tendency to resist new technologies due to a fear of the unknown. It takes time, but at the end it will be as you said. Do you personally would have a driverless car if you had to the chance now? /Susan

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
tjgkg, sometimes I wonder if it is not us who come up with all these ideas and hackers just find them ready to elaborate, improve, and put them into practice. What do you think of this, do you think it could be possible? Terrorists already deliberately crash and planes. The only difference would be that none of them has to die in the process. Yes, there are some really bad people out there. But progress and technology can't be stopped because of them. It is also true that the good guys are doing everything that is in their power in the security space. /Susan

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
Just like people no fear when they get into a driven car after years of being inured to the risk, eventually people will not fear getting into and putting their loved ones (even little ones) into driverless cars. And the fewer driven cars on the road at that time, probably the more rational the fearlessness.

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
That is my concern as well. Imagine some hacker taking over your car in a remote spot and not releasing control unless you pay a ransom. Or worse, a terrorist group could cause cars to deliberately crash themselves. It is pretty scary to think about these things but there are some really nasty folks out there.

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
Broadway, that's a great question about what the right age for sending kids to school in an autonomous car would be. Do you think when self-driving cars become more common people will leave fear behind? /Susan

Impact, How old is your young child? Yes, for the elderly, disabled, and teens will be great, as well as for those who don't like driving, or can't drive for some reason, but also for children who go to school. /Susan

Re: Big in the Bay Area, but will they work?
Charlie, I don't know particularly in the Bay area, but according to car manufacturers, companies responsible for the connectivity in the vehicles, and research studies traffic will see improvements and fatalities on the road will decrease. /Susan

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
impactnow, they'll probably pass a law that involves arresting parents who allow their childrens to ride in these cars alone. Just like they arrest parents who leave kids in the car when returning the shopping cart to the front of the Wal-Mart. Seriously, though, why would it be ok to place a teenager in one of these vs. a 6 year old? And what's the cut-off. The age that children can stay home alone? Is that 4th grade?

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
Susan I don't know that I would put my young child in a self driving car on their own but I do think it would be great for the elderly disabled or teenagers that need a ride to the mall!
