I’ve been surprised that the nav screen on a 2019 F-150 knows where the speed limit change occurs within a few yards/meters [even if it gets the speed limit wrong because it was recently chopped by 5 mph - it’s apparently not reading the value on the sign].
I have thought about all the mischief that could be played
with all of these new-fangled auto pilot driving systems.
...fake cross walks...
...cardboard cut-outs of pedestrians...
...fake stop signs...
...ropes pulling things across the roadway...
The teenagers of tomorrow will have a lot of fun!
Honest officer, my computer misread the signs!...................
And the same amount of effort trying to fool human drivers would be far more successful.
You people really need to be brighter.
Good bet Waymo's software wouldn't do this since it relies on Google's mapping. I suspect any speed sign listed faster than their database contains would be rejected.
Tesla= expensive, dangerous junk.
I have to laugh, but the Golf Kart crowd will violently object and spin.
Humans have something called common sense, which overrides some perceptions. Common sense is right enough times that it is essential to the human organism. Yes, it’s wrong sometimes. There is no way to program common sense into a computer. None.
Plus, the human mind has the ability, which it doesn’t always use, to monitor its functioning in real time, and to take measures to get itself back on track. I’d like to see someone try to program that into a computer.
From the article:
“McAfee confirmed that it disclosed its findings to both Tesla and MobilEye before making them public: ‘McAfee disclosed the findings to Tesla ... and MobilEye ... . MobilEye did indicate that the more recent version(s) of the camera system address these use cases.’ In previous instances of vulnerabilities being exposed by white-hat hackers, Tesla has been fairly quick to fix them.”
That’s completely unsafe. That even exceeds rookie cop speed. Double the speed limit plus 10 mph.
It doesn’t take much imagination of what WILL go wrong with “auto” anything. Jets have just abruptly fallen out of the sky and these autonomous cars and trucks can be turned into missiles on the road.
I’ve seen eagerly color street and traffic signs. Next they’ll be rainbow and so on. This could raise havoc on the auto-cars.
The tesla knows what country it’s in. Are there any areas in the US where you are allowed to travel at 85. If the sign said 130 would it go 130 or as fast as it can go.
This is beyond ridiculous. This will force then to not rely on signs and be tapped into some database that knows the speeds at every location on every highway. The states must already have this info in some database that they will be required to share in the future .
Moonbeam reply: But is going 85 in a 35 zone all that bad if you’re saving the planet at the same time, given that there might be children running around?
Answer: Yes, and if you take out some of the children, then they won’t have a chance to further warm the planet!
No big surprise. Sorry, but we’re a long way from driverless vehicles.
