In Autonomous Vehicles (AVs), Multi-Sensor Fusion (MSF) is used to combine perception results from multiple sensors such as LiDARs (Light Detection And Ranging) and cameras for both accuracy and robustness. In this work, we design the first attack that fundamentally defeats MSF-based AV perception by generating adversarial objects. This demonstration will include both live actions and interactive demonstrations for the generated adversarial objects, attack effectiveness, and the end-to-end consequences.

Qi Alfred Chen is an Assistant Professor in the Department of Computer Science at the University of California, Irvine. His research interest spans software security, systems security, and network security. His major research theme is addressing security challenges through systematic problem analysis and mitigation. His research has discovered and mitigated security problems in systems such as autonomous driving systems, next-generation transportation systems, smartphone OSes, network protocols, DNS, GUI systems and access control systems. Currently, his research focuses on security problems in autonomous systems and IoT, for example autonomous driving and smart transportation systems. His works have high impacts in both academic and industry with over 20 top-tier conference papers (over 10 in the security area), a US DHS US-CERT alert, multiple CVEs, over 50 news articles by major news media such as Fortune and BBC News, and email acknowledgements from US DOT, Apple, Microsoft, and Comcast. Chen received his Ph.D. from the University of Michigan in 2018.
