    The ultrasonics are not suitable for AEB. They are too short range and are really only useful at low speeds due to latency. Tesla used ultrasonics for blind spot monitoring before they started using cameras and it was really bad.

    Shift gears while rolling no longer working on 10.3?

    I noticed the same thing, I usually shift at a slight roll while backing into my driveway and ever since FSD Beta I haven't been able to do that. This was 10.2, 10.3, and 10.3.1. When I got rolled back to prod I did gain that behavior back for one day. I did find that odd.

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    That has been my experience as well. My neighborhood has unmarked streets and the car seems to try and drive down the exact center. It does move over when there is oncoming traffic but not as quickly as it should and it can spook the other driver. And these roads are curvy so sometimes you can't...

    Who with a score of 100 and more than 100 miles is still waiting for FSD roll out?

    I am still waiting, I had a score of 99 all week and made it 100 last night around 9 pm PST. I have not received an email or update.

    Safety Score

    I got to 100 tonight at 9 pm PST. I did not get any emails and my car is not downloading anything 😢

    Post locations where you think FSD (beta or not) will fail spectacularly

    I don't think it's really the street layout that makes Manhattan difficult. One way streets and grid layout shouldn't be a problem. It's more of the other traffic and pedestrians. FSD isn't very assertive and is very hesitant. Manhattan drivers and pedestrians don't really wait for anyone...

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    That's good practice for non-FSD human drivers as well. That way if someone rear ends your car you aren't thrust into oncoming traffic. I've always been taught to keep the wheel straight until the turn is clear to avoid this scenario, instead of winding up the wheel while still waiting for the...

    Supercharger - Tustin, CA (LIVE 16 Nov 2021, 8 V3 stalls)

    Had lunch in this plaza yesterday and took some pics. Looks like a little bit of progress. Looks like trenching work is in progress and the cabinets look like a new addition from the last set of photos.

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    It's where EPA range data should go. I guess either that data is not yet available or Tesla wants to keep the true range and efficiency numbers under wraps until Thursday 👀

    Wiki Model S Delivery Update

    I spotted a Plaid Model S at Fremont, looked pretty dirty from presumably road testing. Managed to take a pic of the window sticker. Definitely looks like the screen is more flush and has lost the ability to tilt as previously speculated. Looks great, yoke there and all the trim pieces as well...

    Autopilot Questions

    1) No, only if you have FSD it will take the exit for you. If not, standard AP does not lane change or take exits/interchanges. Standard AP will only be a lane keep assist and adaptive cruise control. With FSD you get Navigate on Autopilot which does the fancier auto lane changes and route...

    Speculation on the reason for the refresh delay

    Looks like the wait might finally be nearing an end. Elon just confirmed a Model S Plaid delivery event on June 3rd in Fremont Source:

    Elon tweets "pure vision" will solve phantom braking

    @verygreen had a snapshot from the AP unit of a phantom braking event which shows the radar returns from the overpass. Interestingly not a "high confidence" from radar but vehicle brakes nonetheless.

    Supercharger - Irvine, CA - Culver Drive (LIVE 17 Apr 2021, 16 V3 stalls)

    Drove by again this afternoon and saw that SCE is closing off the lot again on 4/14. Looks like there might be more work to be done on the Supercharger before opening?
