    bjorn nyland's test of tesla vision

    Aren't dog years shorter? May be he's calling us SOB's ie we are all dogs..... In which case his human years will be 7 of our dog years!

    bjorn nyland's test of tesla vision

    Without 1st hand insight to exactly what discussions are going on, it's impossible to comment on who is stopping / delaying who. However, as per this thread, when there is so little if any sensible, consistent product evolution / improvement (tested, documented updates, universal application of...

    bjorn nyland's test of tesla vision

    This seems to be problematic as in effect seems to try and bypass the seller's obligation for goods to meet normal 'sale of goods' conditions. It seems to me that selling a 'beta' product doesn't work as there is little recourse and what you have actually bought isn't even clear especially as...

    bjorn nyland's test of tesla vision

    While we have strayed we way off lights, I realise that I don't know if there are any cases where an accident (Tesla or other) has been attributed to poor performance of automatic systems. I'm actually surprised Bjorn hasn't had a meltdown previously over auto lights. I guess this time it is the...

    bjorn nyland's test of tesla vision

    Ever since my 'bug report' bubble got burst with the realisation that in effect, it did nothing, I have seriously doubted that there is much if any 'learning' going on, especially in the UK. At one time, it did appear that when I returned home from a journey with many AP disengagements, my...

    Solar Panels UK - is it worth it?

    I'm not so convinced of that beyond a few years. The supply system should be better placed to predict and cover demand fluctuations at scale than individual consumers. Indeed, part of the renewables landscape needs to be energy buffering to a much greater extent than at present. We will know if...

    Solar Panels UK - is it worth it?

    Find a grain of truth, determine how far you can distort it without becoming indefensible, assess monetary value of running story based on extreme extrapolation..... Call it news.

    We are getting some way off lighting issues, but in the context of lighting depending on interpretation of vision I guess we are still in the frame somewhere! Your point here is totally on the mark. You can't have 3 vision sensors capable of giving you contradictory data based on the same...

    I don't think anyone would set out to use an unreliable sensor. Also there are many ways of viewing unreliability. B Pilar cams are obviously unreliable... or may be undependable..... based on fogging / condensation problem. But the out put could be unreliable / undependable due to insufficient...

    Like make a yoke do a BETTER job than tried and tested steering wheel? The danger is that you use the quest for the impossible as a selling tool to differentiate your product or mask shortcomings. I agree you should not be scared of attempting the seemingly impossible when there is a clear...

    bjorn nyland's test of tesla vision

    I'm not sure that this is always true, although it certainly could be in some cases. A great sensor for certain situations might be useless in others.... hence the attraction of complimentary sensor suites. But when their outputs disagree - as they may well do in circumstances where you you...

    bjorn nyland's test of tesla vision

    Takes me a year (or much longer) to commit to a plan of action after endless research.... while knowing that even then there are no guarantees. But changing cars to (effectively) just any other car that people happen to be selling (also over priced and new not an option when supply is...

    Meanwhile........ The Your post reminds me that compared to most if not all alternatives, Tesla excels at long distance road trips. Even when I was first coming to terms with phantom braking, whacky lane and speed changes, wipers and other niggles, driving through France to Switzerland I...

    bjorn nyland's test of tesla vision

    Which I would say is a vestige of the original 'selling using the reputations of previous buyers' approach. I agree, Tesla is to EV's as Hoover was (still is?) to vacuum cleaners. They seem to be very focussed on less is more because Tesla says so. I still can't get my brain to like the Cyber...

    bjorn nyland's test of tesla vision

    Tesla certainly do a good job of putting across a monumental level of indifference about most user and media coverage these days. (In fact they make it feel as though they would rather not have to deal with customers at all!) But they USED (imo exploited) the early owners to build the brand...
