Taiwanese mechanic experiments with urinal sensor on a Mercedes

Wang Chi-sheng is a young, enthusiastic Taiwanese mechanic, who is interested in experimenting with Mercedes’ electronics. The dude is now in jail and the story is pretty interesting.

Wang tried to replace a sensor in a luxury Mercedes-Benz car with a urinal sensor that he stole from a closed-down petrol bunk.

The Taiwanese Mercedes-Benz technical department termed the plot "unbelievable" and sent out a note to all maturing vehicular experimenters that car/convenience hybrids are not just light-hearted fun. Weng’s experiment could have gone terribly wrong, and ended in a tragedy as a short-circuit could have easily happened around the engine area, igniting the fuel and resulting in a catastrophic fire/explosion.

"The probability of successfully using a sensor from a public urinal to replace special factory-made sensors was and remains zero," quoted a representative from Mercedes-Benz Taiwan.

So, before you try impressing the blokes at Stuttgart, think twice!

I don’t get it. Is Wang’s working for Mercedes? If yes, then why they didn’t give enough budget for the experiment.
