Advanced Driver Assistance Systems are essential in the further improvement of driving experience, convenience and safety. For the implementation of these systems a lot of sensors and technologies that connect the vehicle with the outside world are needed. This includes, among others, (Smart) Cameras, GNSS, LIDAR and RADAR. As the reliability and integrity of these sensors are crucial for the functionality of ADAS features they also are points for attacks on modern vehicles.
