How British Civilians Responded to a Connected Cars Survey using IoT
A research conducted by Gemalto in the U.K. States – One-third of the British population believes connected cars will be the dominant form of transportation in the next few years.
Connected cars will offer a variety of features including improved technology, robust security, self-driving features, and more. These cars will be able to communicate with road infrastructure system and traffic managements. Customers will be able to view road obstructions, live traffic updates, safety warnings, nearest gas station, and parking places. Customers were also interested in protective features including theft protection (45%), accurate GPS and road locations (39%), Wi-Fi integration (43%), and improvement in car features with software updates (31%).
But, the major issue was still related to the safety protocols of driverless cars. More than 65% audiences raised questions related to passenger safety. 48% customers were conscious of cyber security, accidents, and loss of control. However, a small number of people were concerned about data privacy.
The research concluded that car manufacturers must integrate IoT devices with multi-layer security to make driverless cars a thing for the future. Features like identity assurance and key management should be given keen attention. Top-notch technology should be used to ensure data security. If these security measures are overlooked, then the survival of connected cars would become a myth in the U.K.
