Data Security

One of the major questions facing AVs today is, “what if a maniac hacks the cars and causes a massive fatal accident?” Another big question is “who will own the data that these cars generate – the driver, the manufacturer, the state?” We believe we can solve these problems and provide answers that will keep passengers safe while keeping their identity secure. One potential avenue of interest at the moment is blockchain technology, which is essentially impossible to hack and provides a means to report data anonymously. Whatever the answer ends up being, the work of our data security group will help passengers feel both their bodies and their personal information is secure every time they ride in an autonomous vehicle.
