The future of driverless cars and data security
The technology is in place for driverless cars, but data security must be improved.
Regulators are weighing new laws, and insurers and other stakeholders are actively studying the matter.
Progress is being made, and come 2019, the first driverless cars are expected to take to our roads, according to BI Intelligence.
Car manufacturers are working diligently to ensure that their driverless cars are hack-proof, given their exposure to the connected ecosystem.
Some fear that hackers could gain access to one or more autonomous vehicles, taking command for their nefarious purposes.
As manufacturers brace for this leap into the future, they are taking steps to secure this weakness.
