Panasonic has created a system to protect smart cars from hacker attacks

Panasonic intends to introduce a security system designed for automakers. It is designed to prevent cyberattacks and is designed for the growing number of vehicles that receive all kinds of services through the Internet.



According to a company representative, the system will use pre-installed software to detect all kinds of "deviations" in the software of connected cars, and Panasonic and automakers will monitor such activity around the clock. At the end of October, Panasonic already demonstrated a simulated cyberattack and how it can be detected at a test observatory located in Tokyo. The demonstration vehicle was remotely attacked in Osaka, with the steering wheel rapidly turning 180 degrees, and a warning signal sounded in Tokyo.

The company claims that interception of control while driving can lead to fatal incidents, so any anomalies must be identified at the earliest stages. The Panasonic system is said to be capable of just such tasks.

It is expected that remote support teams will be able to collect and analyze information in real time, as well as remotely update software to suppress attacks from the outside, and the observatory will be able to protect vehicles both in Japan and far beyond its borders.


According to research company Fuji Keizai Group, the share of connected machines among all new products sold will grow from 34% in 2019 to 80% in 2035. The Japanese government also actively supports the introduction of tools to protect machines from cyber attacks. Cars with control systems that can be updated remotely will have to be inspected by the Ministry of Lands, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism from July next year. Evaluation criteria will include the availability of cybersecurity tools and the timely release of relevant updates.

According to Panasonic, the company is partnering with the IT business and intends to make its system an "industry standard."
