DATE 2021 became a virtual conference due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic (click here for more details)

Taking into consideration the continued erratic development of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying restrictions of worldwide travelling as well as the safety and health of the DATE community, the Organizing Committees decided to host DATE 2021 as a virtual conference in early February 2021. Unfortunately, the current situation does not allow a face-to-face conference in Grenoble, France.

The Organizing Committees are working intensively to create a virtual conference that gives as much of a real conference atmosphere as possible.


ASDW05-03 Cybersecurity for Connected Autonomous Vehicles

Session Start
Fri, 10:00
Session End

  • Organizers / Chairs:  

    • Sebastian Steinhorst, Technical University of Munich, Germany

    • Mohammad Hamad, Technical University of Munich, Germany 

  • Session Abstract: 

    Today's vehicles are increasingly connected and tomorrow's vehicles will be automated, autonomous, capable of sensing their environment and navigating through cities without human input. This comes at the cost of a new set of threats and cyber-attacks that can yield high recall costs, property loss, and even jeopardize human safety. In this session, three partners of the nIoVe H2020 EU project will present security challenges and solutions to improve future autonomous vehicles' security. The session starts with a short presentation about insights on the challenges and limitations of providing cyberthreat protections for public transport autonomous shuttles. The second talk discusses the need to make autonomous vehicles proactively able to react to intrusions and the challenges to achieving such a capability. The last talk addresses further cyber-security challenges that nIoVe aims to solve for autonomous vehicles. The session will continue with an open discussion to discuss all the introduced challenges and other related aspects.
