Google 自動駕駛車保護行人而申請的專利

在「Google patent: Glue would stick pedestrian to self-driving car after collision」這邊看到因為自動駕駛車的發明才有可能做到的專利。

一般的情況下,在汽車撞到行人後,駕駛會急忙停下來,而可能會導致後方車輛的追撞,而且可能會導致行人直接飛出去造成更多的傷害。這個專利規劃在車輛前端使用特殊的黏性膠,再透過減速讓行人黏在上面停下來:

The front region of the vehicle may be coated with a specialized adhesive that adheres to a pedestrian, and thus holds the pedestrian on the vehicle in the unfortunate event that the front of the vehicle comes into contact with the pedestrian,

The adhesion of the pedestrian to the vehicle may prevent the pedestrian from bouncing off.

專利的示意圖:

BMW 遵守 LGPL v2.1 的方法

然後他把這份光碟的內容放上 GitHub:「All the Open Source Software provided by BMW for their i3」。

結合 Malware 與 Social Engineering 的詐騙

在「Malware scam appears to use GPS data to catch speeding Pennsylvania drivers」這邊看到新的詐騙方式。

手機的 malware app (藏有惡意程式的 app) 會要求 GPS 資料 (現在智慧型手機上 app 的常態),而當 malware app 偵測到你超速時,詐騙集團就會發出假的超速罰單,像是這樣:
