Where Safety and Cybersecurity intersect in Connected Vehicle Tech

article imageAs the demand for self-driving connected technology grows, so do conversations around vehicle safety and cybersecurity. Many advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in today's vehicles are already operating autonomously using a combination of sensor, camera, radar, and other technologies to course-correct driver error or detect and avoid nearby obstacles. But just like any other connected tech, autonomous vehicles (AV) are vulnerable to cyberattacks.
