IAV at CES 2018 in Las Vegas

A Journey Towards Digital Mobility

      A Journey Towards Digital Mobility

      Following IAV's successful appearance at this year's CES, in 2018 the company will once more be presenting its vision of the future of digital mobility.

      In future, vehicles will communicate far more with each other and with their surroundings than they do today. As part of the Internet of Things, they will be a rolling device which is always on. The vehicle thus becomes a platform which connects the digital world seamlessly with personal mobility. Mobile devices and cloud data ensure that the vehicle adapts to the needs of the passengers, generating a pleasant atmosphere and making the journey as safe and comfortable as possible. Autonomous driving, in particular, will profit from vehicle connectivity, as this is what makes fully automatic navigation possible in the first place, while also opening up new possibilities to passengers already today, such as working, shopping or enjoying entertainment during the journey.

      New mobility concepts also permit a whole range of new servicing possibilities: remote diagnosis assesses fault messages while the vehicle is still on the move. The autonomous vehicle than takes itself to the service center and returns to the office car park, repairs completed and ready to drive home at the end of the day.

      Together with our partners in the automotive and IT world, we are working at making this vision ready for volume production. At the CES 2018 in Las Vegas, we will be presenting a number of developments and would like to invite you to join us on the journey into the future of digital mobility.

      Automotive Security


      Success Factor for Connected Mobility

      Securely connected: in future, motorists will expect to have a permanent and flexible connection between the vehicle and the environment. At the same time, personal data and vehicle information need to be reliably protected from misuse.

      Modern data connections present new challenges in terms of vehicle safety and security. The security of connected vehicles in the digital age has to be warranted particularly with regard to two aspects. On the one hand, the vehicle's own data must be securely safeguarded, while also protecting the vehicle itself from external attacks on the other.

      Today's encryption and authentication procedures mean that safeguarding data security of the vehicle's own data is no longer a problem in technical terms, although this does mean considerable extra effort in terms of hardware and software development. Furthermore, a well-conceived and integrated security concept is also needed to protect the complex IT architecture of a connected vehicle. In future, vehicles will be permanently connected with the environment in many different ways (e.g. cloud, other road users, roadside infrastructure). This opens up a greater risk of misuse, for example by hackers.

      A Security Defense Center will be tasked with the all-encompassing security concept, basically including the following aspects:


      • Constant vehicle monitoring for OEM/fleet operators to detect and avert attacks
      • Analysis of weak points and description of problems by the OEM in order to close security gaps
      • Software updates must be sent to the affected vehicles of the OEM/fleet operator


      At the CES in Las Vegas, IAV will be showing how this looks like in practice, in cooperation with Karamba Security. Hacker attacks are reliably detected and prevented by a demo vehicle embedded in a fictitious vehicle fleet. At the same time as the attack is detected, the prototype Security Defense Center is informed about the details so that weak points in the program can be remedied, e.g. by a remote update "over the air".

      The small-batch UCU family has been extended specially for this application with the addition of a further universal control unit that offers special security functions and can be used as a secure gateway.
