I didn't mean for the auto parking to be remotely hacked but hacked before hand through the USB port it'll enevitably have and the triggered after some period of time whilst the vehicle is in motion (say above 50mph?).

If the electronic power steering suddenly pulled left or right I can see it quite easy to loose control and if the auto braking is adding to the fun then it could really get messy very quickly.
