56% of all light #vehicles in the US will be actively connected #cars by 2022 | #TpromoCom #IoT #Internet | Parks Associates estimates the US will have 169 million actively connected cars by 2022, representing 56% of all light vehicles.

The firm’s 23rd-annual CONNECTIONS™: The Premier Connected Home Conference, May 21-23 at the Hyatt Regency San Francisco Airport, features the Connected Car Corner, by InstallerNet, and a special session on the connected car-smart home crossover to examine the latest innovations in this market area and the opportunities for vendors, manufacturers, and service providers to extend their IoT solutions to the vehicle.

The Connected Car Corner, by InstallerNet, features innovations from Alpine, Owlcam, Reviver, SiriusXM, Support.com, VOXX, and Waylens, among others. Solutions on display include Android Auto and Apple Car Play, dash camera recording, customer lifecycle support, digital key control and license plate, driver scoring, remote engine start, radar detection, GPS navigation, safety and security features, voice activation, WiFi hotspot, and wireless backup camera.

The session “Connected Cars: Extension for the Smart Home” features the following speakers:

  • Brian Brackenbury, Director, Connected Products, Gentex Corporation
  • Jan-Philipp Gehrmann, Director, Head of Automotive Sales & Marketing Silicon Valley, NXP
  • Andy Hodge, CEO, Founder, Owl Cameras Inc.
  • Katie McMahon, VP and GM, SoundHound Inc.
  • Dr. Alan Messer, CTO, Mojio

“From a technology perspective, many of the building blocks are already in-place for cars to connect to the smart home; however, ensuring a simple, intuitive, easy-to-use interface is critical for a non-distracted driving experience,” said Brian Brackenbury, Director, Connected Products, Gentex Corporation. “While voice has made some great strides forward, the automobile environment has factors like road noise, fellow passengers, and noisy kids that don’t always make voice the right choice for a user interface. Aggregating the fragmented services into a simple, one-touch interface, like HomeLink Connect, will ensure the end user gets something they can actually use every day, in all conditions!”

“The interrelationships between our homes, devices, and vehicles are becoming smarter and more seamless,” said Jan-Philipp Gehrmann, Sr. Director, Head of Automotive Sales & Marketing Silicon Valley, NXP. “I look forward to joining the Premier Connected Home Conference to share more about these exciting developments and how new automotive technologies are making transport increasingly autonomous, safer, more environmentally sound, and securely connected.”

“Connected car is what’s next after the connected home. Just like it is in the home, video security is at the heart of what consumers and businesses need for their cars and trucks,” said Andy Hodge, CEO, Founder, Owl Cameras Inc.

“Our burgeoning global population is straining our housing supply worldwide. We must do everything we’re able to avoid a tangential energy crisis, and smart apartment technology is uniquely positioned to do so,” said Felicite Moorman, CEO, STRATIS IoT.

“With the adoption of voice AI technology in connected cars as a top priority in the automotive industry, we’re at a tipping point for leveraging voice across all industries,” said Katie McMahon, VP/GM, SoundHound. “I look forward to telling the story of how integrating voice AI into cars and other Internet of Things devices can vastly improve consumers’ customized experiences, as well as allow companies to maintain their own brands.”

“The smart home ecosystem is expanding rapidly,” said Dr. Alan Messer, CTO, Mojio. “As consumers realize the value of an increasingly connected lifestyle, innovative players like Mojio and Vivint are enabling the next generation of consumer IoT services that unite the capabilities of connected cars and smart homes to unlock enhanced safety, security, and convenience protection for the two most valuable assets – our homes and our cars.”

Hackers Exploit Critical Flaws In Car Alarm Apps – What Drivers Need To Know

Hackers Exploit Critical Flaws In Car Alarm Apps – What Drivers Need To Know | #TpromoCom #Hackers #Auto #Car #Alarm | Researchers at the penetration testing specialists invested nearly £4,000 ($5,000) in high-end smart car alarms systems in order to put them to the test. Ken Munro, the founder of Pen Test Partners, explains that an advert by one of the vendors concerned and stating the system was unhackable had piqued interest initially. That’s never a great claim to make as any security expert will tell you that there is no such thing as being 100% secure.

“As we see more and more of what we have connect itself to the Internet, such as ordinary household appliances, we’re also going to see more hacking. Unless we do something to stop this hacking, the world of IoT will become a nightmare for all of us,” says Al Colombo, Senior Design Specialist with TpromoCom of Canton, Ohio. “When are we going to learn NOT to put critical infrastructure on the Internet for our enemies, both foreign and domestic, to diddle with? How many billions of dollars and people’s vocational means of making a living must be lost before we learn?”

The vulnerabilities were not even that hard to uncover and enabled the researchers to use the legitimate account of one user to access the profiles of others. This was because one simple ‘modify user’ request in the code was not being correctly checked for validation. Once accessed they were able to change the user passwords and take control of the account, and the car it related to.  Written by Davey Winder with Forbes.

Companies Create Ploy to Control Driverless Cars

Companies Create Ploy to Control Driverless Cars | #TpromoCom #driverless #car #Uber #Lift | Gizmodo is reporting that shared ride companies are gunning for self-driving cars to hit the streets but they don’t want just anyone to be able to access them. In fact, in a recent “pledge” signed by the likes of Uber and Lyft, 15 different transportation companies appear to collectively call “dibs” on the technology.
The document titled “Shared Mobility Principles for Livable Cities” is being hailed by Wired as “10 Commandments for Making Future Cities More Livable,” and yet others aren’t quite so keen on the suggestions contained within – specifically point #10, which says that autonomous vehicles should only be operated in dense urban areas by shared fleets. http://ow.ly/fKvK30ihxiv
