Security For Cars That Are Smartphones On Wheels

Your modern car is a computer on wheels—potentially hundreds of computers on a set of wheels. Heck, even the wheels are infested with computers—what do you think prompts that little light on your dashboard to come on if your tire pressure is low? And computers don’t just run your infotainment system, backup camera, dashboard warning lights, and the voice that tells you to buckle your seatbelt. They direct the fundamental vehicle functions too—acceleration, braking, steering, and transmission.
