Police Given Power To Remotely Control Your Self Driving Car

Police granted power to remotely control self-driving cars


Police officers may be able to remotely control self-driving cars in the future, as part of crime fighting efforts being considered by the U.S. government.

Autonomous vehicles (AVs) are fast becoming a reality and prominent scientists such as Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and Bill Gates all signed a letter urging the U.S. government to create new laws governing and restricting their use in the future.

Naturalnews.com reports:

In addition, authentication and encryption standards would be needed to restrict which people would be allowed to override the system. Furthermore, rules would have to be created that limit the number of non-autonomous vehicles, since criminals could use them to ensure that their cars could not be overridden by an external command.

It wouldn’t be just law enforcement that would be capable of overriding AVs, however. All start up technologies have hiccups, and there is considerable debate about whether such overriding systems could be made hack proof. Even software used for years is susceptible to bugs. Security is a process that takes time. It involves identifying bugs before antagonists seize and take advantage of them. By taking control of the wheel and accelerator, terrorists could turn any AV on the road into their very own kamikaze pilot.
