Re: No remote access while in motion?
If no remote access whilst in motion, this would require a physical solution.  Some sort of inertial switch that has no electronic intercept.  Otherwise it can be bypassed when the car is not in motion (which is most of the time), so that it does not activate the defence when in motion.

A physical solution may be damaged by road activities.  Yet another thing in the car that breaks.

Re: No remote access while in motion?
I am very eager to try these new cars in real situation. But it will require a lot of administrative and security work to launch them at large scale.

No remote access while in motion?
Although I am concerned about car hacking, which is more likely to become problematic as cars become more connected, as with every piece of tech out there, I do wonder if one way to mitigate a lot of potential issues would be to disable all forms of wireless access while the vehicle is in motion.

If parts of its systems are locked down remote assistance is disabled while a car is in motion, would we not be able to avoid any such issues of mid-drive hacking?

Similarly so, requiring the use of a local hardware 'key' before remote administative tasks are performed could also cut back on pre-drive hacking I would imagine.

Are car companies looking to put such measures in place?
