Vehicles need to accurately grasp the world around them - just like the human driver - in order to drive autonomously. Automotive technology aims to fit vehicles with capabilities even beyond the senses of the human driver, allowing to make the most intelligent decisions in real time. The information that vehicle sensors collect must not only be real time and accurate but also be secure against hacking attacks so that we can trust them with our lives. Reliable ADAS and appropriate security measures are a key ingredient in self-driving cars. Vehicle-to-X technology, extends the visibility beyond the sight of drivers to "see" around corners and through obstacles. External sensor information and internal data from the car networks are vital to help to eliminate the 1.3 million road accidents happening on global roads each year.
