Also from the article:

"Keen researchers have remotely flummoxed Teslas before. These are the guys
who, a few years ago, remotely slammed on the brakes of a Tesla Model S from
12 miles away, popped the trunk and folded in the side mirror, all while the
car was moving."


"Currently, fiddling with the external, physical environment isn’t where the
efforts are going to secure self-driving systems against attack. That should
perhaps change, the Keen researchers believe, given that such attacks are
feasible, and they should be factored in to design companies’ efforts to
secure the cars."

These from some of the comments:

"We *already* have perfectly good self-driving vehicles – they’re called
taxi’s and buses."

"... we need to get to the point where we can trust the cars to drive
themselves 100% of the time and I can be safely and legally drunk and
asleep in the back seat ..."
