On the way to the connected car
The car of the future is connected: online services and the integration of mobile devices in the vehicle are already standard in many cases. But connection is also associated with threats: hackers are setting their sights on vehicles. Initial proof-of-concepts have already been published and made headlines. Large vehicle fleets can be considered attractive targets for hackers – so the risk of an attack is definitely real.
Our safety & security innovation team researches solutions for the secure connecting of vehicles with the environment and answers questions the automotive industry has to ask: How can software be developed that is difficult to attack with exploits? How do you test systems for vulnerabilities? Where do you start testing? What are the associated risks?
The innovation team focuses on finding answers in cooperation with OEMs and the industry, and provides support for customers.
