Cyber security challenges in the automotive sector are becoming increasingly significant as AVs become a reality and as the number of heterogeneous applications and services that run on AVs or interact with them grows, including teleoperation safety technologies.
Argus Cyber Security, and Phantom Auto, have partnered to ensure the security of teleoperation safety technology in vehicles. Argus Connectivity Protection, integrated in Phantom Auto’s teleoperation safety technology, will detect and block attacks in real-time and prevent them from proliferating to the in-vehicle network.
In addressing this issue, the California Department of Motor Vehicles mandates: (1) the use of remote operation for driverless testing, and (2) a certification that AVs meet appropriate and applicable current industry standards to help defend against, detect, and respond to cyber-attacks, unauthorized intrusions, or false vehicle control commands.
By using Phantom Auto’s teleoperation safety technology, driverless AVs will have a highly-trained human in the loop, who can safely drive the AV in the event the vehicle cannot safely operate. But the connectivity that enables this comes with inherent cyber risks, therefore the company is partnering with Argus to ensure the highest level of protection for our teleoperation safety technology by partnering with Argus.
