How to Trap an Autonomous Car

by Shane McGlaun

A performance artist has devised a simple way to trap unruly autonomous cars. A guy going by the name “stml” has done this by using the dotted and solid lines we all know for the streets we drive on each day. He simply created two circles made out of salt, and let his semi-autonomous car drive into it.

The car sees the dotted lines as ok to cross and the solid lines as a no-go. That means the car can slip into the circle, but refuses to leave afterwards. It’s sort of like an autonomous car Hotel California. You can check out any time you want, but you can never leave.

I do think he might have just ruined autonomous cars though. If hackers can mess things up for us with nothing but salt, we are doomed.
