Hackers Will Soon Be Trying to Send Your Driverless Car Off a Cliff

After a recent spoofing incident perpetrated by the Kremlin, the dangers of sensor spoofing for autonomous cars feels more real than ever. Dr. Humphreys spoke with Inverse about the vulnerabilities of autonomous cars and the threat of GPS spoofing. “Everybody’s primary fear is they’re traveling down the road in an autonomous car here and somehow hacks them remotely and takes them off to some far-off place and locks the door”, said Dr. Humphreys. The Radionavigation Lab is hard at work to develop countermeasures to these problems, such as improving cryptography and developing better signal-detection detectors.
