By 2022, there will be 203 million vehicles on the road that can receive software over-the-air (SOTA) upgrades; among those vehicles, at least 22 million will also be able to get firmware upgrades, according to a new report by ABI Research.

As the level of vehicle autonomy grows, cybersecurity will become increasingly critical. ABI Research anticipates the automotive industry will begin to see more mergers and acquisitions over the next two years as carmakers emphasize the value of software management solutions.

If the security will be taken as serious as in the current Internet, and even more so in the IoT world, then the safest car will be an oltimer.
