Dutch law enforcement discussed their collaborative work with automotive manufacturers such as Tesla, Audi, Mercedes, and Toyota to create a system of remotely recovering autonomous vehicles. A feature of remote recovery is that the doors are locked by law enforcement, so consequentially the thief will be driven to the police station along with the self-driving car. Chief Innovation Officer Hans Schonfeld says "We do this in collaboration with these car companies because this information is valuable to them, too. If we can hack into their cars, others can as well." He envisions a day where connected cars will allow the police to know who was driving the car at the time of an accident by measuring the driver's weight at impact. A few months ago, Dutch researchers tested a fleet of seven connected cars, all equipped with cooperative adaptive cruise control (CACC), on a cleared stretch of highway. The cars could adapt their speech to each other and talk to intelligent traffic lights on the road. "The expected advantage of cruise control is that roads can be used more efficiently," said Elisabeth Post who worked on the project. "It allows for more cars on the road simultaneously as well as more cars utilizing the same green light." Schonfeld envisions a near future where cars will know everything about their surroundings, as well as you, the driver. This constant data collection could save your life someday, he adds.
