    As the owner of a late model Chrysler vehicle I am greatly concerned about some of the technology used. The keyless systems are nice, but I suspect some day someone will just walk up and drive away with my car. :(

    I'm guessing that if it's easy to crack'em it's also easy to secure them?

    Not sure how easy it is but it is fixed in Tesla's case.

    Since it concerns a lot more brands, I think it would be a good idea to rename this thread.

    From the paper mentioned in the article ronjor just posted:

    So much fail...

    How about: Get an autonomous vehicle and you may be in it while it takes you for the ride of your life as well. Or the roadtrains comprised of all manner of vehicles controlled by the front one, being a source of much pain and agony for many.

    Won't happen? History suggests the possibility exists, and as is usual with technology these days, it seems these bridges will be crossed when they are arrived at. However, sadly, the lesson will be learnt too late, even though the future can be pretty much summed up already.

    Why do a car's vital systems need to made vulnerable and available to outside hacking all of a sudden? Didn't they work fine for the past 100 years?

    Convenience is a powerful selling tool when you're dealing with the lazy, or those who don't understand the implications these 'helpful' features provide. Do we really need cars that self park, when this what a licenced person should be able to do as part of the qualified driver deal?
