Connected vehicles are the future of mobility, integrating various technologies such as electric cars, assisted driving, and, in the not-too-distant future, autonomous vehicles.
In parallel, connectivity enables the development of a whole new range of services, gradually introducing features such as infotainment, navigation assistance, vehicle and driving monitoring, and traffic management (as part of “Smart Cities”).
- The development of the connected vehicle, along with advances in advanced driver assistance systems, sensor technology (cameras, radar, ultrasonic sensors, lidar, etc.), inexorably leads to autonomous vehicles.
- However, it is not only cars or other land transport vehicles that use or benefit from these technologies. All unmanned machines such as robots and drones use these technologies as well.
- All of these new advances that will lead to greater safety, fewer accidents, reduced energy consumption, and mobility efficiency face a significant challenge, which is to be resistant to attacks and especially to cyber attacks.
