In the IoT, things are expected to become active participants in business, information and social processes where they are enabled to interact and communicate among themselves and with the environment by exchanging data and information sensed about the environment, while reacting autonomously to the real/physical world events and influencing it by running processes that trigger actions and create services with or without direct human intervention.
Hardware (hundreds of components in your car) Software (firmware for these components) Network (wireless access to the components) 3 clusters of opportunities for specialized hackers
Car industry does not work with a unified operating system Still, everything is connected to everything else No protection system Only need access to one component Such as tire pressure control device
Permanently increase volume on radio Produce warning chimes Falsify readings from Speedometer Disable antilock brakes Stop engine Disable individual tires
