NO RATINGS
CHUCK, your fine article points out serious common sense security issues that need to be addressed and resolved before the USDOT mandates EDR technology.   If they continue to duck these issues consumers will be test dummies and may react with a backlash to this life saving technology.  Seems to me like the IEEE did the heavy lifting up to this point.  Kudos to them. What few people know is that NHTSA had been asked to act a few times already but they lack the congressional mandate to deal with privacy and consumer protection issues.  Instead they express crocodile tears and pass the issue on to the states.

Chuck, having some way to detect tampering would be a good first step.  This is difficult, though.  The first time that this data was used in a legal proceeding, if there were not more safeguards, it would be challenged as not being secure.  Another big concern is the one you point out in the article.  If the data were tampered with on a large scale, it would be scientifically useless.  One would have to develop a tampering model to estimate the effect.  Safeguards would be a much better solution.

Latest Analysis
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
The machine is claimed to be the largest and most powerful electric pipe-bender on the market, exerting nearly 500,000 lb-ft of torque.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
This consulting firm has put together a report detailing the growing biomimicry design field in the US and around the world, from naturally bacteria-repelling surfaces to keratin-inspired polymers.
