Connecting automated vehicles with surrounding vehicles, infrastructure and everything else requires physical devices to be embedded with sensors, software, and wireless communications that collect and exchange data. Securing these networks is key if Connected and Automated Vehicles (CAV) are to be deployed at scale.

To understand CAV vulnerabilities, the cybersecurity problem and potential solutions, the Australian and New Zealand Driverless Vehicle Initiative (ADVI) Policy and Risk Group (PRG) held a web-panel with industry experts to understand the risk, issues and opportunities. The web-panel is a chair by PRG Co-Chair and NRSPP Program Manager, Jerome Carslake. The panelists consist of:

The webpanel utilised Menti to make it as interactive as possible, with some live polls. Some of the key themes explored include:

  • How does the public’s fear CAV of cybersecurity risk compare with other concerns
  • The security challenge
  • Accountability
  • Managing risk
  • Opportunities and maximising benefits
