Of course this type of problem isn't going to be limited to Jeeps.

 

The double-edged blade of the connected world.

I was wondering the same thing about self driving cars.  They surely will be vulnerable to the same type of hack problems as any WWW connected device.

Oh yea, no doubt.

 

A friend of mine was telling me how much he wanted one of the new Amazon Echo devices.

 

I'll pass.

a bit of paranoia or just a though.. any vehicle connected to the net has a build-in tracking device, right?

Which lead me to assumption if the vehicle is registered to a person, technically you could download or get an access to the log where the this vehicle is or was going all the time.. Bye bye privacy, right?

On the other hand, we already have a monitoring device build-in in our cell phones :hissyfit:

now the only concern I would have that 3rd party would be able to control or take a control of my vehicle when I am in it (driving or self-driving vehicle)... 

Solution? buy a bicycle

I've even done the move in an urban setting.  The part of the moose was played by a cement truck and the part of the ditch was a cameo appearance of a rock wall behind a house.   Then there was the WVa performance where the part of the moose was played by the schoolbus-sized rock that came off the rockwall.    The ditch-  played by the Potomac river.
