UPDATE on this terrible accident -
Earlier today I talked with a crew of police & firemen who had responded to this horror. I learned that the testimony they took from the scarcely-injured Model X driver included the following extremely interesting material (I need to paraphrase here):
"I saw nothing. All of a sudden my X slammed on its...
So, with all the discussions about the Model 3's 12V frunk opening system, I thought it would be interesting to see what would happen if you didn't use a 12V portable jumpstarter... but rather a standard 9V alkaline battery.
Why doesn't UBS disclose that it is massively shorting TSLA?
$446M in June
$402M in March
$682M last December
UBS needs Tesla to fail.
At some point within the last month or so Tesla has added code to the firmware updater on the car that prioritizes firmware patch downloads when on WiFi and will delay downloading patches when not on WiFi.
The update server will now give the updater on the car a timeout date for when to give up trying to get the update if the car never...
Pretty disturbing if true (buried in latest NY Times re-hash):
"At 6:30 a.m. on Aug. 18, three robots in the paint shop at the Tesla factory in Fremont, Calif., started malfunctioning. The incident forced a production halt on the Model 3, the key to the company’s future.
Made aware of the stoppage, Mr. Musk went to the factory and worked into...

You are absolutely incorrect in this one. I do this every day in the commercial environment.
When the robot follows your lead it writes its own code concerning movement. That's absolutely true. There is no static coding anymore - written by humans on commercial robots. X-Y-Z coordinates and function are totally follow me written....
I guess I'll post here too.
The latest snapshotting logic shows us that they actually have some quite advanced labels.
A snapshot trigger for my car requesting "label: construction" triggered for my car today and created this image:
There's a bunch of other labels requested like "Confusing lanes", "slope up/down", "barrier" and so on....
Curious as to how many of the camera on the new Model S are actually being used at the moment so I decided to do some testing today.
I started by first covered in the side fender cameras. This has zero effect on Autopilot and it worked as if they were not covered.
I then covered the side B pillar cameras. Again, zero effect on Autopilot.
I can't compete with the internet in terms of educational material. There's so much great stuff out there that explains deep learning it's just crazy. Of course if there's any particular thing you would like pointers on I'll try to help.
I haven't been posting much stuff on the AP2 NN lately because real facts are hard to come by and I'm not...
Couple of points from someone who spent a few decades at another car company:
OEM tire selection is based on engineering criteria most important to achieving program objectives and certification. Top among them, lowest rolling resistance compounds are spec'd for best efficiency (fuel or electric). These compounds have the downside of...
I'm sharing this so others can learn from my experience. My midnight silver EAP aero Model 3, VIN 68XX (manufactured 3/18 according to door sticker) was scheduled for delivery today @ 10 AM at the Fremont Delivery Center. Reading enough reports of car defects, I removed my emotion from the car pickup process and expected that...
I normally charge at home, but with a mostly empty car I noticed that the Volta free charging near me was open, so I parked there and filled up. When it was ready to go I walked back and there was already someone wanting to charge. I pulled the J1772 and hung it up but when I tried to remove the adapter it was locked. I know, now, I should have...
Beautiful day here at Laguna Seca!
The first session of the day had NO battery power limitations! Nine laps without slowing down! Yes!
However, brakes are toasted...literally cooked. No brakes left after the 4th lap. Going into turn 2 at 103.9 MPH without brakes...not ideal. Here is a picture of the front left rotor and pad... nothing...
I received my Model 3 this week and finally had an opportunity to take an extended drive in it and listen to the Audio system. For a frame of reference, I have a Model S with the top tier Reus audio package (2 subs, amps, new tweeters, center tweeter mounted behind the rear view mirror) and a Model X with the UHFS setup.
My personal tastes in...
TEG's post on the Monroney stickers for the 3 prompted me to dig around for them. Unfortunately, I came up short in that search, but I found something just as good, maybe even better.
Long story short, Tesla built a monster with the 3! It can put down 258hp, gets 126mpge (confirmed via the picture in TEG's thread), has *roughly 78kWh of usable...
Looks like there was a meeting with big investors at the Fremont factory yesterday,
writeup via reddit here. Main takeaways:
running at 5000 week
Q3 5000, Q4 7000, mid 2019 10,000/week
Nothing new on FSD
China GF funded like other projects before
(thus ruling out something like a surprise investment like from Tencent IMHO)
Akilae over at Model 3 owners club found this code snipet on the Tesla site:
Just got done a very unique experience from Tesla and wanted to share my experience with the forums. After going to our service center with a friend to take delivery of a Model S on Sunday, Tesla was able to squeeze me in for a test drive of the Model 3 Performance All Wheel Drive. I was very impressed on the test drive but was later surprised...
Some quick personal impression of my 2 weeks old Model 3. There are tons of review out there about various features so I will not waste time on those as all of you can probably recite all the features better than I can.
Sporty handling - We have a 90D Model X and both my wife and I prefer the drive of the Model 3 much better than the...
