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.
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....
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 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....
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...
125 miles in 15 minutes !!!

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...
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...
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...
Akilae over at Model 3 owners club found this code snipet on the Tesla site:
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...
The Model S and X are the only EVs that can do long distance traveling in a reasonable amount of time. Compared to an ICE car it takes about 20-25% longer for charging on the way. The shorter the trip, the less charging makes a difference. For example on a 300-400 mile trip, you start with a full charge, stop once at a Supercharger and then you...
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'm working on some videos showing how the M3 is put together. Here are my 1st two:
This is a timelapse of the 1st one:
More to come...
It looks like as map updates are being prepared for early next year (in Europe and probably in US), people should be extra careful about their wifi and cell providers.
I tried to let Tesla know about some holes in their maps infrastructure, but they never replied to me, so I guess they don't care as much, even though they did close some of the...
From the part catalogue ("October 21, 2017 through Current Production", previous was - "October 14, 2016 through Current Production"):
- New part number for the MCU (same part for S and X now.)
- New part number for front lights.
- Automatic circuit breakers for the 12V system.
- Redundant power for servo.
- Double the cables for the radar,...
I'm not a pro on the software side, and I only dabble in neural networks so all I can offer is observations and opinions. But here are a few items:
I put 26k miles on AP1 before switching to AP2 and now have about 7k miles on AP2. As of right now it's not hard to find situations where one or the other clearly wins so I can't really make the...
Graphs, graphs, graphs :)
Two of the PHEVs in the above graph have higher actual acceleration than their theoretical max electric acceleration because they also use a gasoline engine in parallel. I presume the X100D figure to be erroneous. In general the achieved 0-60...
