Because I think we should have one. Starting off:
Researchers have identified a potential issue with sensors used in some older Tesla models that misinterpreted speed signs to read the speed limit as 50 miles per hour greater than the sign stated when a piece of electrical tape slightly obscured one of the numbers.
The issue was identified as part of 18 months of research by McAfee researchers Shivangee Trivedi and Mark Bereza, who sought to examine the ways that machine learning could potentially be exploited, specifically in the case of autonomous vehicles. Many autonomous vehicle suppliers use cameras produced by MobilEye to register the limits on speed signs, and McAfee researchers found that using stickers to slightly alter the appearance of the sign had the potential to interfere with the camera’s reading.
