Abstract

The security of autonomous vehicles refers to the tasks of safeguarding the transportation system from attacks, risks, and vulnerabilities. Autonomous vehicles include self-driving vehicles and semi-autonomous vehicles. Although is a very interesting concept, the operation of autonomous vehicles opens doors to various security attacks that require in-depth research and experimental evaluation.

The research problem addressed in this project comprises the risks and vulnerabilities that are involved with the operation of autonomous vehicles. Autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles could be targets of military or terrorist activity. In addition, the public may not feel safe about their operation on the road if their security issues are not addressed properly.
