Cybersecurity and AD Vehicles
AD Vehicles have become integral to virtually all of our life experiences. People require these for clothing shopping, moving residences, grocery shopping, attending baseball games, and nearly every other activity.
These have advanced such that the autonomous drive (AD) vehicles are being engineered by more auto manufacturers and the required software and hardware configurations are being implemented by Tier 1 suppliers. As these improve, are tested more, and appear in mass on the road, the question persists as to when these be used completely on the road, just like in the movies.
These vehicles have a rather significant requirement. The vehicles rada (e.g. LIDAR) and other equipment have to be nearly perfect, meaning nearly 100% of the time there cannot be an error or oversight. A vehicle correct 92% of the time is problematic. The public would be in danger if a vehicle’s radar was correct only 9 out of 10 times, especially for the 10th person when the LIDAR fails and the person is hit.
The implementation will take much more time to perfect.
