Semiconductor Engineering: Privacy Protection A Must For Driver Monitoring

Privacy Protection A Must For Driver Monitoring 

April 1st, 2021 - By Ann Steffora Mutschler

Why driver data collected by in-cabin monitoring systems must be included as part of the overall security system.

Privacy and security has to be addressed at every layer, by all parties, said Kurt Shuler, vice president of marketing at Arteris IP. “We’re getting questions from customers asking, ‘You’ve got this interconnect, it’s a network, you have these firewalls, how do I integrate this into my overall security system for my chip?’ They also want to know how to integrate that in the overall security system of that vehicle subsystem, and how to integrate that into the overall security system for the car, and then the network of cars. If I’m GM, I’ve got a whole network of GM cars running around. Where there’s OnStar, I have to protect that data too, and that’s sitting on servers. The OEM is cognizant of this because they know from market forces that if they screw it up, then people aren’t going to trust them. And even though there are IEEE, ISO, and SAE standards, selling security is like selling insurance. Nobody thinks they need it until after the incident happened. The risk is huge here if you don’t do it right, so you should do everything state of the art. However, there’s nothing currently legally forcing that.”
