Aerospace has been ahead of automotive in terms of autonomous technology. Automotive has had the additional challenges of density and human interaction. However, new aerospace models have similar characteristics to automotive, and thus some interesting new opportunities for cross-pollination.
Focus On: Cybersecurity
CISA has created an Autonomous Ground Vehicle Security Guide that provides transportation systems sector partners with a framework to better understand cyber-physical threats related to AVs and recommended strategies to mitigate both enterprise- and asset-level security risks.
In autonomous vehicles, security and safety are paramount. Methods for achieving these goals sometimes benefit both, but potentially put them in conflict. | When it comes to autonomous vehicles, safety-critical systems are not impervious to security threats, meaning developers need to address both issues in tandem.
Focus On: RADAR
Take a dollop of machine learning, a handful of radar sensors and a market that is clamoring for autonomous cars not mowing down hordes of pedestrians, and you’ve got yourself a particularly frothy fundraising environment. Hot on the heels from the $10 million round Spartan Radar announced in…
