    Will we get computers on wheels, or trucks with embedded computers? Today’s automated truck already has a minimum of 70 CPUs built in. That is more than the NASA rocket that took Neil Armstrong to the moon. Automated vehicles feature dozens of cameras and sensors. The drivers have smartphones, trucks are connected to the cloud for tracking & tracing. Increasingly, vehicles communicate mutually and with the infrastructure. The first cars have already been hacked via the network and data confidentiality is a hot topic. Issues in this area cover: architecture, standardisation, (cyber)security and data development.
