Today's cyber-physical threats disrupt automotive operating models
Modern vehicles are marvels of innovation. Even today’s most popular models are chock full of technology and connectivity. The average car contains more than 150 million lines of code, plus multiple individual computers and a vast number of wireless connections to internal and external communication channels. It can stream music, send texts, offer real-time traffic information and personalized roadside assistance, detect nearby activity through sensors, and even drive autonomously in controlled situations. This immense amount of on-vehicle technology has created automobiles that have more lines of code than a 2016 Ford F-150, and F-35 fighter, and a Boeing 787.
