Tesla Self-Driving System Fooled by Stickers on Pavement

April 5, 2019

Researchers from Tencent Keen Security Lab successful attacked Tesla’s self-driving system, fooling it by placing small stickers near traffic lane markers in the roadway.

“…[T]hey were able to use ‘small stickers’ on the ground to effect a ‘fake lane attack’ that fooled the autopilot into steering into the opposite lanes where oncoming traffic would be moving. This worked even when the targeted vehicle was operating in daylight without snow, dust or other interference.”

— “Small stickers on the ground trick Tesla autopilot into steering into opposing traffic lane,” Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing

This was anticipated by James Bridle‘s 2017 video work “Autonomous Trap 001, a work-in-progress” (above).
