um, the designs I've seen bandied about and discussed, cars would communicate with each other in maintaining constant contact to ensure crash avoidance with one another.
If cars are communicating with each other, then, there's a signaler and a receiver which could potentially be compromised.
Additionally, how would such cars get updates to their Operating Systems to ensure reliability, and patch bugs that were overlooked or missed during initial development and rollout?
Its not the computer driving the car under normal conditions that i worry about.
Its the computer when the car blows a tire at 70 mph.
Or comes around a corner and hits black ice.
Or hydroplanes in heavy rain.
