The Internet of Things (IoT) has gained a huge user base by facilitating Internet-connected devices being used in numerous applications including autonomous vehicular infrastructure. Autonomous vehicles (AV) can no longer be perceived as just mechanical systems, with over 100 million lines of code in the overall architecture. These vehicles are growing increasingly connected and computer-like, with capabilities to sync with mobile phones, provide vehicle occupants with the latest weather and navigation updates, and communicate safety information to other vehicles and surrounding infrastructure. Though autonomous vehicles are connected and computerized bringing evident advantages to the passenger experience and to road safety, there are security and privacy risks. This paper discusses the overview of wireless IoT infrastructure in AVs and for AVs and its security challenges.
