Universal Physical Camouflage Attacks on Object Detectors

Intro: In this paper, we study physical adversarial attacks on object detectors in the wild. Previous works on this matter mostly craft instance-dependent perturbations only for rigid and planar objects. To this end, we propose to learn an adversarial pattern to effectively attack all instances belonging to the same object category (e.g., person, car), referred to as Universal Physical Camouflage Attack (UPC). Concretely, UPC crafts camouflage by jointly fooling the region proposal network, as well as misleading the classifier and the regressor to output errors. In order to make UPC effective for articulated non-rigid or non-planar objects, we introduce a set of transformations for the generated camouflage patterns to mimic their deformable properties. We additionally impose optimization constraint to make generated patterns look natural to human observers. To fairly evaluate the effectiveness of different physical-world attacks on object detectors, we present the first standardized virtual database, AttackScenes, which simulates the real 3D world in a controllable and reproducible environment. Extensive experiments suggest the superiority of our proposed UPC compared with existing physical adversarial attackers not only in virtual environments (AttackScenes), but also in real-world physical environments.

G-UAP: Generic Universal Adversarial Perturbation that Fools RPN-based Detectors

Intro: Our paper proposed the G-UAP which is the first work to craft universal adversarial perturbations to fool the RPN-based detectors. G-UAP focuses on misleading the foreground prediction of RPN to background to make detectors detect nothing.
