What are the trends in autonomous vehicle security?

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) are going to transform our driving habits, the transportation industry and wider society. We’ll not only be able to hail a car to our doorstep and send it away once used, but AVs will also challenge the concept of car ownership and have a positive impact on the environment and congestion. However, one topic remains high on the agenda: security.  By Marc Canel, Vice President of Strategy, Security, Imagination...
