The issues surrounding connected and autonomous vehicles crystalize some of the most advanced and complex technical challenges of the digital transformation. The design of an autonomous object, which is mobile in a human environment, does however appear to be achievable by the next generation of technologies and must incorporate cybersecurity as a key success factor. To pre-empt this trend, Télécom Paris, supported by Fondation Mines-Télécom, has just launched its new academic and research chair for a period of five years, together with Nokia, Renault, Thales, Valeo and Wavestone.
The chair will be focusing on new cybersecurity issues linked to the emergence of new mobility patterns:
By working very closely with five key business players, Télécom Paris aims to create a unique ecosystem and to the make the C3S Chair a point of reference for research and training in the field of connected and autonomous cars. The Chair is led by two Télécom Paris professors, Guillaume Duc, a specialist in embedded systems security and Rida Khatoun, an expert in network security and attack detection. They will be working together with a multidisciplinary team.
The Chair will focus on five major themes:
The C3S Chair is Télécom Paris’s 12th chair to be funded by companies; it is the second chair in IMT and Université Paris-Saclay to deal with cybersecurity.
