Notes from the Electronic Cottage 9/3/20: Computerized Cars- What We Don’t Know

Producer/Host: Jim Campbell

Many of us that drive daily have little idea of what our cars are doing. We don’t mean how the engine or transmission works: we mean how all the information about how we drive and where we drive that is being collected, some of which is being sent through a cellular connection that we don’t even know exists to companies that we similarly don’t know exist for purposes that we don’t know anything about and haven’t agreed to, at least consciously. Might be worthwhile to know a bit more about the data that is being collected about our driving without our knowledge and monetized by others, so lend an ear here.
