Re: Fuel Cell vs. Lithium Ion
Brian, the aerodynamics in the Mercedes F 015 is also because the car is powered by hydrogen fuel cells. You wonder if they will make a come back. I would say that since the technology in the Mercedes is the best of the best there is problably a reason. :) /Susan

Re: Fuel Cell vs. Lithium Ion
Brian, NASA also uses hydrogen fuel cells to power the shuttles' electrical systems. One benefit of this is that the crew can drink the clean byproduct> clean water. /Susan

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
Technorati,

in the case of connected and autonomous cars the security comes in the networks and solutions that make the connectivity possible.

What car manufactures have to watch is the security protection against cyber-attacks and intrusions, which cause malfunctions, or threten the physical integraty of the driver or pedestrians. 

Software and connectivity for connected and autonomus vehicles will become more critical. Safety and security telematics will play an important role, thus, they need to be enhanced since the start. Security vendors are taking care of this. 

Would you buy a totally autonomous car which has option of manual mode as well. or you would be happy with a car with some connectivity? :)

Technorati, 

The use of scanners? What exactly do you have in mind?

Re: Where does this leave motorsports?
Whoopty, 

I am happy you have addressed this question. :) Indeed, as you did, I thought about this as well. I think you have missed the second page of the story, here is the link: http://www.informationweek.com/it-life/mwc-2016-paves-path-for-connected-cars-/a/d-id/1324462?page_number=2 < - Connected cars and Formula 1 

British F1 driver Lewis Hamilton doesn't think they will replace drivers in motorsports. :) After you read the second page, let me know if you have questions.

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
Technorati, 

According to the conversations I have had at MWC with the companies like Nokia Networks providing 5G and network services for IoT, M2M, connected cars, etc., they say these networks are being built with enhanced encrypted security. 

These cars need to have a different kind of security, stronger than what smartphones have, because they could be used as potential weapons. Just imagine that someone thinks of crashing a car like they crashed the planes into the WTC in New York. :/

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
Technorati, 

Good question, nevertheless.

Do you mean the option of buying a car with all the connected features disabled and then enable them as you think is convenient for you? Something like that?

Re: The Security Implications of Connected Cars
progman, 

It's not their fault if they are getting all the attention. It's not an easy topic either. However, I think I am on Apple's side. The company has shown consistency about how they treat privacy, which is a good thing.
