The chunky cars were developed through a partnership between Google and Fiat Chrysler engineers, and their design is based on the automaker’s new Pacifica minivans.”
The latest company to start a bug bounty program makes cars (PRESS RELEASE). “Reflecting the rapidly increasing convergence of connectivity technology and the automotive industry, FCA US LLC today announced the launch of a public bug bounty program on the Bugcrowd platform to enhance the safety and security of its consumers, their vehicles and connected services.” “FCA US” not ringing any bells?
