    Well, right now, the only rear sensor that could detect a rear end is the rear camera. I am sure the rear camera is stitched into the...

    Well, according to Tesla's roll out process, they release a feature wide after Early Access. So I do expect Tesla to release this...

    No chance in hell I’d run something with a list of warnings that long. Just not even going to risk it, so no data from me. Takes too...

    Agree. And Tesla itself puts in the manual that traffic light response may not be reliable in these conditions: - Visibility is poor...

    And not just use it, its vitally critical. No map? It won't stop at the intersection. There is a map but no light? It will still stop at...

    Yes, driver input is a form of driver monitoring. I was thinking of how Tesla does not use a driver facing camera which could allow...

    I'm going to make a prediction that "City NOA" will be very similar to this "Traffic Light Response" feature. Based on GPS and some...

    I think #1 is worse. And Elon is so adamant that the cars are "FSD capable", there is no way that he will do #1. It would be a complete...

    These limitations mentioned in the manual confirm my concerns about the hardware not being good enough: - Visibility is poor (heavy...

    but but but... i thought adding an extra sensor modality and redundancy is a crutch that is doomed, waste of money and cover for failings.

    Green has the owner's manual updates on the new stopping at red lights that gives all the details. But it's mostly GPS based with some...
