Abstract

We present an early discussion on how people might interact with a rogue autonomous vehicle (AV). A rogue autonomous vehicle is one that may behave in unpredictable and dangerous ways because of malfunctioning sensors, vehicle tampering, or malicious hacking. Rogue AVs present a danger both to passengers' and nearby pedestrians' safety. To address this challenge we conducted a preliminary design study and gathered and analyzed design ideas that highlight how people envision they could interact with rogue AVs by both identifying and reacting to them. Our initial results highlight design concepts such as redundant sensors, tiered responses, audio and visual cues, and ways to obtain trusted confirmation. We conclude with a discussion on future steps for designing for interactions with rogue AVs.
