DATE is pleased to present a special hybrid format for its 2022 event, as the situation related to COVID-19 is improving but safety measures and restrictions will remain uncertain for the upcoming months across Europe and worldwide. In transition towards a future post-pandemic event again, DATE 2022 will host a two-day live event in presence in the city of Antwerp (just north of Brussels in Belgium), to bring the community together again, followed by other activities carried out entirely online in the subsequent days. This setup combines the in-presence experience with the opportunities of on-line activities, fostering the networking and social interactions around an interesting program of selected talks and panels on emerging topics to complement the traditional DATE high-quality scientific, technical and educational activities.

ASDW05-03 Cybersecurity for Connected Autonomous Vehicles

Session Start

  • 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.
