Big in the Bay Area, but will they work?
I think driverless cars will worsen traffic snarl-ups in the Bay Area because cars must take their turns and proceed through narrow corridors at such frequent intervals that the software will balk and freeze up at the close proximity to other cars. Or it may be driver-driven cars will have an advantage in highly congested situations that slows the progress of cautiously driven, driverless cars.

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
Impact,

Yes, people who can't drive are going to really enjoy these cars. They will change their life. Also, parents will have more free time since the car will drive the kids to school, pick them up, and do other things like sending things to relatives, friends, etc.

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
jnskm, 

That would be catastrophic, indeed! This has been a thought-provoking conversation. Thank you. As I mentioned earlier, according to the conversations I have had with, for example, researchers and experts on 5G from Nokia Networks and others, providing an encrypted security for the networks is top on the 5G agenda.

But as we know, things can happen. This technology is great and its many possible applications will improve the quality of living in more than one way. Yet, we need to remember that there are evil people out there.

As for the smartphones and Apple, yes, I agree. The Apple vs FBI case shows that the technology exists. The fact that companies can choose how to use it, or don't use it is a different story.

Apple's security has always been reliable. Many people critize the company because of the price of the products. But when you buy an Apple product you get quality and in cases like this, you really understand how much you can trust the company. As an Apple user, I am very pleased. :)

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars

I am very excited about connected cars I think the possibilities for transporting a whole group of the population that can't drive today is incredible! However I do hope there is very rigorous testing, while cyber-attacks are always a worry general tech hiccups are part of any technology project. In this case it could be very detrimental to lives and traffic as a whole.

Re: Fuel Cell vs. Lithium Ion
Brian, 

I really think hydrogen fuel cells is the way to go. As you mention the environmental benefits that renewable energy brings, it's also great for the human health since vehicles also become more silent.

Re: Fuel Cell vs. Lithium Ion
Thanks for the info Brian.

I have heard that EV's are becoming more powerful when it comes to performance, perhaps because of the advances and changes they've made with the batteries and their placement.

Re: Fuel Cell vs. Lithium Ion
My first thought also was the combustibility of hydrogen...if it could be stabilized it soes ound great.

Re: Looking forward...
jnskm, 

You really get the picture. :) How nice. Yes, these cars are really quiet.

I loved reading your description and how much you would enjoy a self-driving car experience, and all what you would do during its driving time.

That is exactly what the car manufacturers say about what the point of these cars is. 

I hope your dream comes true soon. :)
