A Machine Learning Approach for Combating Cyber Attacks in Self-Driving Vehicles


Self-driving vehicles are very susceptible to cyber attacks. This paper aims to utilize a machine learning approach in combating cyber attacks on self-driving vehicles. We focus on detecting incorrect data that are injected into the data bus of vehicles. We will utilize the extreme gradient boosting approach, as a promising example of machine learning, to classify such incorrect information. We will discuss in details the research methodology, which includes acquiring the driving data, preprocessing it, artificially inserting incorrect information, and finally classifying it. Our results show that the considered algorithm achieve accuracy of up to 92% in detecting the abnormal behavior on the car data bus.
