Abstract

Reports on vehicular telematics. Here, suggests that vehicular telematics is but one of the later instantiations of Orwellian digital dystopia, but with its own distinvehictive twists including the increased exposure to malicious hacking and the potential for abuse of individual privacy. As with other innovative technologies, modern vehicular telematics is a mixed blessing. There is no doubt that some telematics associated with convenience, safety, mechanical reliability, and entertainment are welcomed by many consumers and to varying degrees. With my latest vehicle, I most appreciate features like forward collision alert, 360° surround vision, distance indication, front pedestrian braking, cross traffic alerts, active cruise control, lane-keeping assistance, parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring.
