    Phantom Braking

    completely canceled out by all the negative progress. for this to WORK, it has to be lots of nines. this is not fb or twitter where software can be sloppy and 'oh well!' no one gets hurt. this - people get hurt if you write the software poorly. stakes are high. if you cant get enough nines...

    Phantom Braking

    I truly believe that if we add more intelligence and shared knowledge, this can be minimized. I'm talking about v2x. vehicle to anything radio comms. imagine a series of cars that have this and each actually has a different brain (brands) and so their code and object ID algorithm is slightly...

    $12K for FSD is insane

    remember how elon said it would drive across the country to come get you and pick you up. yeah. about that, elon ....

    $12K for FSD is insane

    today, I was tailgated by some asshat driving a MB. so close to me, I tried to give him a hint that this was - uhhh - not so bright. I braked a few times to give him the idea but he just would not get it. he insisted on tailgating me. the PB is probably what will push me over the edge and...

    Politics - Quarantine Thread

    its quite different. elon rules and no one can argue with him. I've heard from people who worked with and under him. you dont want to be around that guy and working under him. he sets the whole feel of the company and its rotting. its clear. yes, a ceo who is toxic has that kind of effect...

    Phantom Braking Needs to be Reported and Fixed

    the solution is to buy 'caution! student driver!!' stickers. I hate that idea, but I see value in it. on a tesla, the car is always in student driver mode if there's any automation going. btw, I just had my first really bad PB event today. I used to say that living in the bay area meant that...

    v11 software update SUCKS

    how much for a properly VGER'd car? one with the antenna fused to ground? dont give elon any ideas - seeking the creator or otherwise. but more and more, I'm thinking vger had the right idea about its own antenna.

    v11 software update SUCKS

    when I said 'are doing this' I meant the software guys are writing (or the beancounters are buying) the OTA feature and integrating it. its not a matter of 'if' but 'when' for every single one of them. they see lots of up-side to it.

    Suspected repeater camera defect that affects FSD performance

    redundant camera with shutters, ND filters, wipers, heaters and diversity is expensive. elon is a cheap MF. he wont order his minions to use better quality sensors. they cost money, afterall. you guys are being nickle and dimed to death by this company. you do realize that, right?

    v11 software update SUCKS

    I have to grab hold of something with my hand, on the back of the screen, to steady my hand while the car is in motion, then I can use fingers to select the button on the screen. overall, its NOT IDEAL for driving! well, duh. we all knew this. the largest 'bigliest' elephant in the room -...

    v11 software update SUCKS

    its not very good, actually. look how long it takes to roll out updates to people. its just barely working and overextended, from my POV. all the vendors are doing OTA. its really not anything special anymore and it will be part of all 'connected cars' as the vendors work out the bugs and...

    All discussion of Rivian Automotive

    given the chevy bolt problem and the fact that GM is now on the hook for billions due to its *contractor* (no matter how large they are) - yes, I find it quite ok to ask to tour and keep inspecting your subcontractor's buildings and work styles. when so much is on the lline? yes. and when...

    Suspected repeater camera defect that affects FSD performance

    the idea that you can throw any low res garbage at NN and it will 'sort it out' - that's pure rubbish. low res data in ==> low res outputs. adding junk almost never helps (dither is one case, but this isn't that case). please stop apologizing for tesla. light leaking in WILL affect the...

    Suspected repeater camera defect that affects FSD performance

    those look like vias (a via is a plated thru hole that joins pcb layers). so light goes thru a via? never heard of that before. and yes, that's a design defect even though I'll have to say, its an unusual one. and it should be replaced under warranty. the cameras are not for people, they...
