Tesla’s Autopilot is ‘easily’ tricked into working without anyone in the driver’s seat Anonymous Board owner 04/22/2021 (Thu) 18:19:48 [Preview] No. 14695
Consumer Reports said Thursday it was “easily” able to trick Tesla’s Autopilot system to operate without anyone in the driver’s seat. The publication’s test came amid questions about the safety of the company’s advanced driver assist system in the aftermath of a fatal crash in Texas in which authorities said there was no one behind the steering wheel.

Using a weighted chain attached to the steering wheel to simulate the pressure of the driver’s hands, two Consumer Reports researchers were able to use the steering wheel dial on a Tesla Model Y to accelerate from a full stop, and then “drive” around on a closed-course test track for several miles — all while sitting in the passenger seat and backseat. They stopped the vehicle by again using the dial to bring the speed back down to zero.

Tricking the Tesla to operate without someone behind the wheel was as simple as keeping the driver’s seatbelt buckled, not opening the driver’s side door during the test, and using the weight to simulate hands on the steering wheel.

“The car drove up and down the half-mile lane of our track, repeatedly, never noting that no one was in the driver’s seat, never noting that there was no one touching the steering wheel, never noting there was no weight on the seat,” Jake Fisher, CR’s senior director of auto testing, said in a statement. “It was a bit frightening when we realized how easy it was to defeat the safeguards, which we proved were clearly insufficient.”

What is their point? They could put a brick on the gas pedal of a Mack truck too. Anybody can do stupid shit with all kinds of machines. You can kill a baby by putting it into a Maytag dryer for two minutes. You can *easily* duct tape a chainsaw kickback guard in place and chainsaw your skull open on the first good knot you hit. Why do people occasionally start apparently mumbling something about Teslas somehow being different from any other machine that even a drunken hillbilly can figure out ways to circumvent safeguards on?

If their point is that using weighted neural nets that are virtually impossible to debug to direct millions of 2-ton projectiles at 60 miles per hour on public roads is completely unacceptable to many taxpaying users of those same roads, then they should come out and say that specifically. Nibbling at the edges of that with safeguard circumvention nonsense (which will always be possible with any kind of machinery and any level of safeguarding and is unrelated to the what-we-do-with-neural-nets issue.)

They are working for Chinese intelligence(free of charge), that's the point.
