Month June
Country United States/China
Description 

Investigators from Zhejiang University and Michigan University have found a simple way to blind an autonomous vehicle. By using sound signals, they were able to alter the automatic focus mechanism of the vehicle’s cameras, blurring the image and, therefore, making it difficult for the onboard AI to process it. As a result, the car could ignore the obstacles in front of it, which could lead to accidents.

This infotainment unit -the ‘lcn2kai’, manufactured by Bosch- is present in other models of the manufacturer such as the Altima, the Rogue or the Sentra -which are not marketed in Western Europe-.

Just three days after taking up his new job at Tesla, software engineer Alex Khatilov is caught copying nearly 26,000 confidential files from Tesla’s servers to a personal Dropbox.

According to Tesla, the amount of data stolen would be equivalent to 200 years of work, and could – if subsequently sold – put its competitors on the trail of its technological innovations.
