Roadside eatery is luring people by transmitting false information to autonomous cars

While smart cars are widespread, conventional manned vehicles are almost gone. Unmanned machines interact with each other (V2V), as well as with infrastructure (V2I), in order to build the fastest and most convenient route.

Being a part of this infrastructure, Network Cafe "VeryBigBurger" transmits false information about traffic jams and road accidents, telling cars passing by that path which runs past "VeryBigBurger" is the most convenient one, but, in fact, it is far from being true. The number of "VeryBigBurger"’s visitors grows due to those who are tired to be trapped in a traffic jam next to this eatery and who have decided to wait out the damn jam while having a burger.

hawkera_prime I think there will be regulations that prevent crap like this 11 Feb 2019
Guilherme Meneguzzo Probably there will be laws that add to the new technology rules and that apply some kind of punishment for those who take advantage of the routes to improve their job opportunities. 06 Feb 2019
Mark Enriquez This hack will be performed by the same mindset behind "can't program VCR guy" and "I always hated math in school" guy?? 06 Feb 2019
André Muniz As soon as two or more autonomous vehicles notice the traffic increasing they'll upload the info and since two is bigger than one it'll override the false info and avert the situation before it happens 06 Feb 2019
