Hackers Already Messing With Self-Driving Cars

Hackers are already messing with self-driving cars. “Automated cars use laser ranging systems, known as lidar, to image the world around them and allow their computer systems to identify and track objects. But a tool similar to a laser pointer and costing less than $60 can be used to confuse lidar. The attack can be carried out from behind, in front or from the side of the car and without alerting the car’s passengers, according to a security researcher.”
