Could Skynet take over the 2014 Jeep?
While doing scientific research, i.e. watching Terminator on cable, I started wondering. It appears that everything on the 2014 models is electronic, from the ignition button, to the transmission shifter, to the accelerator, and possible even the brakes. I think even the steering wheel is electronic.
When I learned to drive, the standard rules taught if the vehicle's accelerator stuck was to take your foot off the gas, shift car into neutral, and apply brakes. If brakes also failed, neutral or downshift, coast, and then gently apply emergency brake when in a safe area. If unable to move transmission out of drive, to turn off engine and do above.
With everything electronic, if something happened with the various computers, either accidentally or intentionally (hacker, NSA, Skynet, etc...), is it possible that the 2014 model could be hacked to set accelerator to max, and prevent the driver from being able to stop the vehicle, or perhaps to even steer the vehicle?
