The woman came up with a way to fool the road cameras: and it worked!August 22, 2019
Recently, we talked about how one unlucky California programmer, trying to trick the system, registered for his auto license plate with the inscription “NULL” in the hope that such a move would allow him to avoid headquarters from the cameras.
But things didn’t go according to plan – as a result, fines of other drivers fell on the owner of the car with a “tricky” sign, as a result of which a debt of $ 12,000 hung on the owner. He had to rake the situation for quite some time, but now a more positive example has appeared with a similar message.
At DefCon’s Las Vegas Cybersecurity Conference, fashion designer Kate Rose unveiled her new collection called Adversarial Fashion. The line includes T-shirts, dresses and sweatshirts, which bear numerous license plates with various combinations of characters.
And it turned out that such a simple, but very witty move really works! When road cameras capture a similar “pattern”, their algorithm begins to produce completely unpredictable results. For example, the girl in the camera photograph is considered “a blue motorcycle with the license plate number“ PPRDRTED, which belongs to a person named PEOPL California. ”
Moreover, all these dubious results are also recorded in the database, which in theory over time can reduce the quality of their work. It is interesting whether the creators of the cameras will make changes to the software in order to counter such deception, or they will consider that the line of clothes presented will not be widely used and there is nothing to worry about.
