The use of Electric Vehicle (EV) is growing rapidly due to its environmental benefits. However, the major problem of these vehicles is their limited battery, the lack of charging stations and the re-charge time. Introducing Information and Communication Technologies, in the field of EV, will improve energy efficiency, energy consumption predictions, availability of charging stations, etc. The Internet of Vehicles based only on Electric Vehicles (IoEV) is a complex system. It is composed of vehicles, humans, sensors, road infrastructure and charging stations. All these entities communicate using several communication technologies (ZigBee, 802.11p, cellular networks, etc). IoEV is therefore vulnerable to significant attacks such as DoS, false data injection, modification. Hence, security is a crucial factor for the development and the wide deployment of Internet of Electric Vehicles (IoEV). In this paper, we present an overview of security issues of the IoEV architecture and we highlight open issues that make the IoEV security a challenging research area in the future.
Did you know that experts predict 125 million electric vehicles on the road by 2030? If the International Energy Agency achieves their goal, this is a conservative estimate, as the EV30@30 initiative hopes to make electric vehicles make up 30% of the cars on the road by 2030, totalling an incredible 220 million vehicles.
Electric vehicles are an exciting step forward in Smart Mobility, improving the quality of the air that we breathe, tackling issues such as noise pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, and working towards better energy security for the future. However, as with any new technology, especially one which controls the safety on our roads, security factors need to be considered front and center.
The report “Automotive Cyber Security Market by Form (In-Vehicle, External Cloud Services), Security (Endpoint, Application, Wireless Network), Application (Infotainment, Powertrain, ADAS & Safety), Vehicle Type, EV Type, and Region – Global Forecast to 2025”, size is projected to grow from USD 1.9 billion in 2020 to USD 4.0 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 16.5%. Increased use of electronics per vehicle and a growing number of connected cars, and reinforcement of mandates by regulatory bodies for vehicle data protection are key factors that will drive the market for the automotive cybersecurity market. The growth of the V2X market is also one of the factors that drive the automotive cybersecurity market.
