The German Federal Motor Transport Authority (KBA) and the Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) recently signed an administrative agreement for cross-departmental cooperation to facilitate and accelerate the safe development of automated and networked driving.

“Anyone who buys a new car today assumes that they will receive a safe vehicle. Modern cars are moving high-performance computers that depend to a large extent on digital technology and are to be controlled autonomously by this in the future. The question of safety must therefore also be extended to this area, because possible cyber attacks must not have any influence on driving safety,” said BSI President Arne Schönbohm

“The future belongs to networked vehicles….It is therefore only logical to work with the BSI and KBA to create optimal conditions for testing the functionality and security of the required systems….Together we will contribute to promoting automated and connected driving with the necessary care and attention – for more traffic safety and environmental protection.” said KBA President Richard Damm.

Details in this press release from the BSI.
