Student researchers seek to improve cybersecurity of vehicle-to-vehicle communications
If cars talked to each other, it would improve the travel experience and help save lives—but it could also lead to malicious, even life-threatening, cyberattacks. As a result, most car manufacturers have been hesitant to deploy vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications technology.
At Rochester Institute of Technology, a team of student researchers are working to bridge this cybersecurity gap in V2V communications. The researchers hope their work can be used to help roll out V2V technology in a safe and secure way, as soon as possible — and eventually for use in self-driving cars.
