Oct 5 '16 at 20:10 comment added Michael Richardson Correct. However, all control is done through the neural-port, which will need to have a communication module that receives commands and carries them out, and returns sensory input and other feedback to the pilot. If this communication module is somehow "hacked" (or becomes sentient), then all control paths are available to it.
Oct 5 '16 at 19:25 comment added HopelessN00b @MichaelRichardson Yes, but a vehicle is very different from an exo-suit. A vehicle is designed with the purpose of travelling between locations, and the presence of a driver or pilot is a technological limitation, not a functional design goal. An exo-suit, in contrast, is designed for a different functional purpose, generally to augment the person inside it.
Oct 5 '16 at 19:08 comment added Michael Richardson More and more vehicle controls are becoming software controlled. Not just the "self-driving" cars, but all cars. Originally the steering wheel was physically connected to the wheels (and mostly still is, just assisted by hydraulics). Some controls are being designed to send electronic signals to to other systems in the car rather than being directly connected to those systems. If their is a central control system that processes this control stream, and this central system became self-aware, then it would be entirely capable of controlling the vehicle, given a map or the proper sensors.
