Manipulate Traffic Signs to fool AI-controlled Slot Cars
Current vehicles use artificial intelligence (AI) to recognize traffic signs in order to inform drivers or adjust the speed of the vehicle. We often blindly trust these systems — but what are the limits of machine perception? In Crash Me If You Can we playfully get to the bottom of this question. Visitors have the opportunity to manipulate traffic signs in such a way that they are no longer correctly recognized by the AI. If a speed limit on the miniature racetrack is recognized incorrectly, the racing car flies out of the curve. RISC Software GmbH is dealing with these and other issues relating to traffic sign recognition by AI in the ”SafeSign” research project. This is being funded by the Austrian Research Promotion Agency (FFG) as part of the Ideas Lab 4.0 program. The AI research is supported by funds from the strategic economic and research program ”Innovative Upper Austria 2020” organized by the state of Upper Austria.
