Volkswagen's Clean Diesel
Since 2009, we now know, Volkswagen had been inserting intricate code in its vehicle software that tracked steering and pedal movements. When those movements suggested that the car was being tested for nitrogen-oxide emissions in a lab, the car automatically turned its pollution controls on. The rest of the time, the pollution controls switched off.

This is old hat by now, but I thought this article did a good job of giving a bit more detail about the specifics of what actually happened.
