    3. Closing connected car vulnerabilities quickly and reliably – via the cloud

      Closing connected car vulnerabilities quickly and reliably – via the cloud

      When car manufacturers have to implement security updates or patches to connected cars, time is of the essence. Fluctuating connection speeds and network coverage of mobile networks aggravate the issue, but a cloud-based over the air (OTA) connected vehicle solution can provide the answer. With it, the delivery of critical updates can be accelerated while the data centre being used to deliver the update can be protected against DDoS attacks.

    4. Why the new Ethernet standard will spur innovation in the connected car

      Why the new Ethernet standard will spur innovation in the connected car

      What a difference a wire can make – or, a single, twisted wire pair. This is the case with the new IEEE 802.3bw™-2015 100BASE-T1 standard that supports 100 megabit per second (Mb/s) Ethernet operation over a single, balanced, twisted pair cable in the connected car.

      My jest is appropriate, because this standard has immediate, practical implications for the connected car, as well as supporting a unified platform for

      How a connected car's instrument cluster can be redesigned for contextual empathy

      The connected car is the focus of a lot of speculation about uses for contextual data feeds. The visions are exciting, whether of helmet-mounted cyclist beacons or biometric apps to stop drivers falling asleep at the wheel. But they derive from car makers without a long track record in the kind of human-centred thinking that constitutes best practice in interaction design.
