Software Testing: An Industry For All

For more than 7 years, the Mars Curiosity Rover has been navigating the red planet. There have been a few issues throughout its journey, mainly because the Curiosity was only designed to last a couple of years; but, as of mid-January, it’s found itself frozen in place. Because Mars is 183,390,000 miles away, NASA cannot directly control the Curiosity in real-time, but rather through batches of commands that it receives and carries out; as it carries out tasks, it stores this attitude data in its memory—but something went wrong one day. The Curiosity lost track of its orientation and froze itself in place in order to prevent damage. It is still in contact with NASA here on Earth, though, so now we’ll have to wait and see if NASA can unfreeze our interplanetary robot.

Did You Try Switching The Airplane Off And Back On Again?

Tesla’s Autopilot system is one of the leaders in the autonomous car movement. For $8,000, you can upgrade your Tesla to Full Self-Driving Capability, which allows the car to take you from point A to point B with no driver intervention thanks to countless sensors and image-recognition systems. However, a Ph.D. student in Israel set out to challenge this system—and was successful. By using a projector to display false road signs and lane markings, he was able to trick the system into following these false projections. This is simply because AI image recognition just does not yet compare to that of humans. The outcomes of this experiment highlight the necessity to integrate defensive designs into semi-autonomous driving systems, as well as the fact that fully self-driving cars may be further away than we previously thought.
