There is a huge opportunity to modernize vehicle architectures with advancements in technology. The sooner we migrate to a secure platform of fully software enabled vehicles the quicker our vehicles can learn, predict, and adapt to the world around them.

The Human Condition Labs (HCL), team use the latest innovation processes, the most advanced network security methods and next generation anti-hacking technologies to create a fully independent group that aligns to consumer needs while also representing stakeholder interests.

In a shocking video released by WIRED, on 7/21/15, two cyber security researchers remotely seized control of a late-model SUV while it was driving on a public highway full of vehicles. They infiltrated the SUV’s controls from their living room miles away and exposed the reality of a vehicular cyber attack. The driver lost control of the car when the hackers suddenly cut the transmission, rapidly decelerating the car on a traffic-filled road. They also turned on the windshield wipers, blasted the radio at full volume, and created other distractions.

In the same week, Senators: Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., and Ed Markey, D-Mass., proposed legislation that would prompt the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration and the Federal Trade Commission to create standards which would ensure the security of vehicles and drivers’ privacy.

In our ever connected world, we are entering new areas of safety and security concerns when a security exploit can cause massive disruption on our public roads, in our skies, and other connected infrastructures like mass transit.

Human Condition Labs is designing their universal security solution for the emerging automated automotive landscape based on advanced cryptography, authentication, and a new architecture for de-risking Connected Vehicles.

“The risk of emerging technology being deployed into previously unconnected environments, such as vehicles, cities, and highways is enormous. We see a critical need for increased accountability, technological development, and policy as vehicles become more and more autonomous. We are dedicated to finding and developing safe and secure solutions to de-risk this newly emerging space.”
