Many cars already have numerous driverless features—say self-park, for example—that are designed to make driving less stressful and reduce the chance of collision. Experts agree that truly driverless cars are not just a dream anymore, but a reality that’s perhaps not very far in the future. But, driverless cars pose risks that are inherent to their design:
Because they are connected all the time to the internet, they are also hold potential for hackers to steal data, create havoc, and cause collisions.
Some tech experts are hard at work on these problems. To find out what’s at stake and what might change, check out this graphic.
