Autonomous Vehicles are vehicles capable of sensing their environment, making decisions, and navigating without human input. These vehicles use a combination of sensors, actuators, and sophisticated software to interpret data and operate safely. Autonomous vehicles include not only self-driving cars but also autonomous trucks, drones, and other types of vehicles used in various industries.


Meet the NEC Labs America Intern Helping to Make Autonomous Vehicles Safer and More Secure

There’s much more to autonomous vehicle security than locking a car door. This summer, Kaiyuan Zhang, a 3rd-year computer science Ph.D. student at Purdue University, joined NEC Labs America’s popular intern program to help advance research around autonomous vehicle security. Each year, nearly 50 Ph.D. candidates join NEC Labs America’s innovative program, which centers on a collaborative environment where interns work directly with senior researchers and potential end-user customers.
