It isn't about trying to hide the malware, it is very obvious that it is there.

It is about thwarting any further analysis, or at least making it a pain in the butt.
So you know for a fact you've found a bit of malware, but as soon as you probe it to find it's secrets it kills its self.

Erm its already sorted out? There is a human in the car/truck you know for that exact reason.
It detects an unusual situation and gets the fleshy to take over.

And once a set of road works are mapped, the cars can learn from others that have already gone through.
Ideally the councils/counties would actually have some ability to control the autonomous cars, specify road closures and stuff like that before the car even gets close.


Fetch Robotics Unveils Warehouse Robots 49 49

gthuang88 writes: Warehouse automation has become a big business, with Amazon's Kiva robots leading the way. Now a startup called Fetch Robotics is rolling out a pair of new robots that can pick boxes off of shelves, pass them to each other, and carry the goods to a shipping station. Fetch, led by Willow Garage veteran Melonee Wise, is competing with companies like Amazon's Kiva Systems, Rethink Robotics, and Harvest Automation to develop dexterous, mobile robots for retail, distribution, and manufacturing.
