Driverless car researchers develop plan to prevent hacking on the highway

Jonathan Petit of University College Cork and Steven Shladover of the University of California Berkeley have completed what they say is the first exhaustive analysis of potential hacking on self-driving cars. We don’t really know how self-driving cars will work because there are no consumer products just yet, so Petit and Shladover addressed a variety of systems and attempted to identify the most serious threats to safety and security.
