    FSD Beta 10.12

    FCW 🤬 They really need to improve that detection if they are using it in safety score... It is bad enough when the car starts screaming at you for no reason but then it is even worse when it also affects your safety score... There's a stretch of the road where it would often freak out - divided...

    Tesla FSD beta safety score reset

    It is hard to predict if the opt out will result in the score reset. Couple of weeks I have opted in for the first time on a new car, drove it once and opted out. One day and a few drives later I still had Safety score in the app and after opting in again it continued to take into account the...

    Maybe I should have said "keep in mind" instead of "ignore" but it may not be as "far faster" as it may seem. I also didn't mean to imply that AI learns faster than human if that is your impression. But I wonder what the difference would be if the AI had the benefit of being on par in regard to...

    Ever since autopilot started ignoring the radar changing the following distance setting does nothing :( They have promised it to be temporary but so far no improvement...

    You ignore the fact that humans start with quite a few years learning how to interpret the physical world. AI does not have that background to start (general AI anyone?). Another thing that may be at play here is the difference in the complexity of the neural nets.

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    Back in 2021 I used to get this automated reply to my submissions but not anymore. And back when it was a private beta the participants mentioned that Tesla would sometimes reach out for clarification on the reports but I haven't heard of any report of such an occurrence for the public beta. And...

    Didn't mean it that way - 2000 is a model year :) Until a couple of week ago I had a 2000 civic and still have 2000 Odyssey.

    Full regenerative braking doesn't ding by itself but it seems like it not very far from the limit and when it is combined with incline (going uphill) it could put it over the threshold. And it doesn't much of an incline... It took me some time to notice one of them when I was trying to figure...

    When I drove in Canada with my US FSD it seemed few like extra misbehaviors was mostly due to the difference in lane markings.

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    I'm not sure if auto wipers will ever work. If it is a light rain/drizzle it is often that the upper part of the windshield doesn't get any rain due to it being blown away by the wind so the camera does not see any raindrops while the lower part is getting wetter and wetter until I can't see...

    FSD test in Canada

    When I drove in Ontario the FSD Beta was noticeably worse where the road marking was different.

    My wife drives on FSD beta as well so the closest I get to any FSD beta comment is: "did you do that or the car?".

    For me, I would not say nicely but it is an improvement.

    The FSD is not the same as the safety features. And the latter are included in all the Teslas.

    FSD Beta Attempts to Kill Me; Causes Accident

    Yea, in US there's still no mandate for the side "barriers" on the semi trailers. That one much publicized underride death in the tesla might have been prevented had the "barrier" been installed on the trailer. Yet, all the noise was about Tesla and none of it about lack of the "barrier" even...

    FSD Beta Attempts to Kill Me; Causes Accident

    There are always trade offs. Chances are the resources spent on some of the above (1-3) will help the progress short term but impair it long term. The rest (3-6) are, probably, already being done by Tesla to the best of their abilities and your impression that they are not doing so is just your...

    FSD Beta Attempts to Kill Me; Causes Accident

    I have no problem taking over without any jerk. I, actually, put the steering setting on the 'sport' - otherwise it is way too easy to disengage without noticing it. This one I wholeheartedly agree. I wish there was an option you could set to have it disengage completely in this case. I've...

    I would say it is much more stingy in offering "P" these days than when it was just introduced but it does offer it sometimes.

    For me "cool" part is solving problems that require non-standard thinking. (In my case it is in software but I also enjoy tricky math problems. It could also be engineering or any other area).

    Ok. As I said - I have not seen them. :) There was also a hacked Tesla in Kiev, Ukraine. But that was hacked car so not really applicable. (There's also longer version of that)

    2016 FSD video: there was an accident with roadside barrier on Tesla property

    I guess it could be like that if the person never heard of autopilot but I would expect that most people would have heard about it. I guess, I give an average Joe too much credit if that is not the case...

    2016 FSD video: there was an accident with roadside barrier on Tesla property

    That's strange... For me it behaves similarly while on FSD beta or not. It controls them in both cases. I would say it is more often turns the brights off when unnecessary than the other way around. I.e. turning them off for the traffic signs, street lamps or lights around houses... That's the...

    10.6.1

    I had it driving through rural VT/NY on 10.5. The highway passes through the settlements and the speed limit would change from 55 to 35 and then back to 55. For almost all changes from 55 to 35 the car would indicate updated target speed but continue at previous higher one also ignoring manual...

    MASTER THREAD: FSD Subscription Available 16 Jul 2021

    What I do on long trips is to rest one hand on the steering wheel and the weight of the hand is enough to keep the torque detection happy. For me, the worst situation is when it is a complex driving situation and I put my both hands on the wheel and keep all my attention on the surrounding to...

    Since I have not seen any replies to that effect... Yes, it will drive - I went to Canada over Thanksgiving weekend and it was working. As far as my impression: it did a little worse in Canada than in US probably due to difference in lane marking etc. For example, it didn't want to offer...

    Tesla could make it work much better in geofenced areas if they would choose to. Even without that you could see Teslas doing the same routes as Waymo. Personally, I would be very unhappy if Tesla suddenly decides to start perfecting FSD in some geofenced areas.

    There was definitely a FOMO scheme in there for the pre-2019 buyers.

    2016 FSD video: there was an accident with roadside barrier on Tesla property

    So because the autobrights logic is far from perfect it means AP/FSD is flawed?
  33. A

    2016 FSD video: there was an accident with roadside barrier on Tesla property

    Could you provide more details on that? I do not understand why would TACC slow you down without a car in front. Admittedly, I almost never use the TACC since if the autopilot/autosteer is not available and I have to steer it would be either short stretches or places where you can't really use...

    2016 FSD video: there was an accident with roadside barrier on Tesla property

    Yes you could measure distances with better precision if you use lidar. But do you need it? What would you do with it? How about the length of the presentation? Besides that was a recruiting event. And even if it was a scientific paper the size of it still matters. Also writing separate papers...

    2016 FSD video: there was an accident with roadside barrier on Tesla property

    And you never use brights when you driving yourself and can use them? I think you mean under autopilot... But how do you know it was due to Pure Vision? And if we are talking about single case scenarios, I just had 1500 miles trip with quite a bit of snow and rain and couldn't complain about...

    You are assuming that camera is different from the camera others use for driver monitoring.

    From the video: TPUV3 is 100 PFLOPS at cabinet level and does not scale well past that while Dojo is 108 PFLOPS and scales well. TPUV4 would be 1.1 EFLOPS but it is also a future product. Also Dojo is purpose built for Tesla's tasks while TPUs are not, so you will also lose some efficiency there...

    2016 FSD video: there was an accident with roadside barrier on Tesla property

    You seem to be assuming that if you do not know then it is bad... But anyway, it all comes down to simple triangle math - you have base and two angles. And to calculate the angle you do need the focal distance whether it is the same for both cameras or not... On top of that you could use...

    2016 FSD video: there was an accident with roadside barrier on Tesla property

    At night the car has lights. What other low visibility situations do you refer to? Fog? Lidar does not help with that.

    80 MPH limit unacceptable

    And of course this is due to the speed limits and not due to the driver's education.

    2016 FSD video: there was an accident with roadside barrier on Tesla property

    Eyes are expensive so we have to do with only two of them... The front looking cameras have the wipers and some of the others are partially protected by the forward motion but some system to clean them up would have helped but might not be mandatory - we will have to see. Humans currently are...
  43. A

    2016 FSD video: there was an accident with roadside barrier on Tesla property

    As far as I understand Lidar is no different from camera in its ability to be able to see. Radar is better but it is lower resolution even in theory not to mention that the actual radars do not really build a picture at all. Isn't all stereo camera is doing is SW tricks? Besides, Teslas have 3...

    2016 FSD video: there was an accident with roadside barrier on Tesla property

    My expectation from the name Autopilot exactly matches the reality. Maybe people need to look up the meaning of the word if they are not familiar with it... Currently it is not, but it is not being sold as if it is either. Valid criticism would be why sell system with so unpredictable delivery...

    MASTER THREAD : FSD Beta Issues Tracking Spreadsheet

    Another example where disengaging to TACC is bad: FSD brings the car to an intersection with a red light and tries to make right on red but the FSD jerks steering wheel violently to the point where I instinctively disengage and now the car is in TACC barreling into the intersection in front of...

    Talk me into or out of Model 3 Purchase (mostly range anxiety)

    Personally I would still go with 90% charge: 240 * .9(90% charge) * .7(cold weather range loss) *.95 (degradation) = 144. Let's round it down to 140 for extra cushion - that still leaves 15 miles buffer over 125 miles. And the range loss should be less than 30% with a trip that long. If you...

    Talk me into or out of Model 3 Purchase (mostly range anxiety)

    Another thought is that even SR+ range should be enough for you on a vast majority of the days and you could also check if there're any non-tesla charging stations around your route as you could also use those on those rare days where you may run too close to the range limit.

    Talk me into or out of Model 3 Purchase (mostly range anxiety)

    I think LR RWD is still available as an off menu item - you just will have to call or visit the store instead of ordering it online.

    Current Quality

    I've had a little scrape with another car recently - no damage except some paint transference. That is to say I got their paint on my car - once I rubbed it off there was no damage to paint on my model 3. Can't remember what the other car was... And regarding the user interface I would prefer...
