The US was called upon to include robotals in the list of national threats
The American congressmen asked to check the unmanned driving technologies imported from China for threats of national security. Wired writes about this.
Member of the House of US representatives from the Republican Party August Pflier sent the corresponding letter to NHTSA . The congressman asked the regulator to answer a number of questions related to the verification of threats to national security by Chinese companies.
“I am still concerned that the lack of US control in unmanned technologies opened doors to a foreign state for espionage on American land,” he wrote.
Pflier believes that previously issued permits for testing drones in the United States and the lack of supervision of data from the regulators will lead to their leakage in the PRC.
The congressman emphasized that China can use autonomous and connected vehicles to integrate its systems and technologies into American infrastructure. He believes that the next generation will be able to shoot many critical objects throughout the country.
US Minister of Internal Security Alejandro Maorcas also believes that communications in the hands of undemocratic states are a dangerous tool.
FBI director Christopher Ray said that China stole more data from the United States than all other countries combined.
Pflier also said that the new Congress will increase pressure on Chinese companies operating in the United States.
“Tiktok and Huawei demonstrate the intention of the CCP to use any means necessary to collect American data and transfer them back to Beijing,” he said.
The Senator from the Democratic Party Chris Kuns also stated the intent to tighten the regulation of Chinese social networks. According to him, the Tiktok platform will fall into the field of view of the authorities, which “pumps out huge amounts of data for their use as a tool of state power”.
Recall that in September NVIDIA and AMD banned the sale of processors for supercomputers and processing of artificial intelligence tasks for Chinese firms.
