Autonomous vehicles (aerial, ground, underwater, etc) are going to invest human environment and due to their characteristics, they are natural candidates to integrate the Internet of Things (IoT). By including autonomous vehicles in IoT, it will be possible to compose the Internet of Mobile Things (IoMoT), which introduces new opportunities and challenges. IoMoT raises challenges related to scalability, group control, synchronization, power consumption, limited embedded resources, and limited action time so an important turnover. Considering the required multidisciplinary in the development of embedded systems and that all these dimensions introduce manifold security and safety issues, this talk will focus on security considering the global future IoMoT context outlining some research opportunities and challenges brought by the insertion of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) into IoMoT and an overview of efforts in research and innovation in Embedded Systems in Critical Embedded System Laboratory at USP.
