    Everything wrong with V11 update / user interface.

    Tesla touchscreen/fogging complications at Pikes Peak International Hill Climb (Part 2) Randy Pobst in the 2021 Tesla S Plaid had some pretty bad windshield fogging, which hugely impacted his run. He would have probably won his group, and likely been top 10 overall if it wasn't for this...

    The catastrophe of FSD and erosion of trust in Tesla

    Somehow other companies manage to release products and update them periodically without using the Beta tag. Not all Tesla features are Beta. So why do they call some of their features Beta? It's a way of implying limited liability and a fall-back in case of any issues. Look at other companies...

    The catastrophe of FSD and erosion of trust in Tesla

    I'd almost like to see a regulation (yes another regulation) that time-limits how long something can be called Beta in a production model. Do they not have the courage to stand behind their products? I'm not talking about FSD Beta which is clearly a Beta, but the other Beta features.

    3 Unintended Acceleration events when parking my Tesla S P in my garage.

    "I agree maybe I unintentionally pressed the pedal but how would it happen twice?" Brake pedal or accelerator pedal?

    3 Unintended Acceleration events when parking my Tesla S P in my garage.

    I have no doubt you know what you are talking about WRT Tesla braking systems. You say holding your hand on the brake pedal with a few pounds of force can prevent the car from moving. If you say so, I haven't tried it. Are you claiming that a few pounds of force on the brake pedal will...

    3 Unintended Acceleration events when parking my Tesla S P in my garage.

    Nothing is ever absolute. The pedal force matters, and some people cannot push hard enough. Minimum pedal forces have been mandated but there are still some people who can't achieve them. I don't know what the pedal force is to prevent a Model S from moving, but there is a number. Here's an...

    Canada - FSD rollout

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    Elon and Tesla love those aspirational statements. "As the technology matures, all Tesla vehicles will have..." Yes I bet he does believe what he says, those statements certainly could be proven true one day. However what they seem to lack is the conviction to actually do the work necessary to...

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    I sympathize with how AI Addict lost his job with Tesla, but he does not drive very responsibly. His new video has a few rough sections. 2:32 he allows FSD Beta to drive through a red light and it then stops on a light-rail crossing. Use the brake and stop, if FSD wants to run a red. 9:01...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    Good point. Implementation is the challenge. Ask someone who just crashed and you might hear "I thought it was safe because I didn't see headlights", "There's hardly ever any cross-traffic here", "I figured the truck would let me merge because we're all nice around here". Lots of decisions...

    Elon: FSD Beta tweets

    Often it seems Elon is a visionary who is thinking 5 to 20 years ahead. Just not really in the present. The utopian plans are science fiction like something from Arthur C Clarke. Elon seems to mentally just fill in the gap from Now to Future as a given, where most of the rest of us are stuck...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    Interpolating the road lines to fill in sporadic missing data seems reasonable. Extrapolating the road lines if it then makes decisions off this information is risky. Imagination is not the quality I want in a self-driving car. No evidence has been given on whether it bases driving decisions...

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    Don't you think you should do something other than asking random people on the forum (or perhaps you are, IDK)? Your car came to a full stop from driving speed and reversed on a street. Seemingly for no valid reason. Even if it thought the truck was going to enter your lane, is stopping and...

    Wiki MASTER THREAD: Actual FSD Beta downloads and experiences

    "Throttle" and "Accelerator" still seem acceptable words for the "gas" pedal rather than "go" pedal. You are throttling the amount of electricity going to the motors, also you are accelerating the car. Both can indicate speeding up and slowing down, and how much you press determines how much...

    FSD Computer Crashed!

    Not sure I'd call two processors on the same board a redundant system. Still, FSD Beta seems to keep running even when the visualization and touchscreen blanks out. Some videos have shown that. I wonder if any safety systems are lost during the reboot time? Who would know the answer to...

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    Much like the "rolling stop", this "reversing on FSD Beta" is a function that needs to be explained. When exactly does it reverse, how does it decide, and does it do this safely? Since Tesla only seems to respond when forced, I would like to see someone with FSD Beta report this to the NHTSA...

    The unofficial "when do I get my FSD beta update" FAQ

    Well they did say that at least once to everyone who passes the safety test. Beta button will request permission to assess driving behavior using Tesla insurance calculator. If driving behavior is good for 7 days, beta access will be granted.

    Autonomous Car Progress

    Yes that is what I meant, and you're correct that there are solutions to that problem. It was a light hearted comment to say that I don't see any reason not to allow self-driving buses, or self-driving anything. So long as it's done right.

    FSD Beta accidents

    The release notes are full of subjective terms, "improved", "smoother", "better". Even 4% of a made-up property is likely unmeasurable. I wouldn't call them release notes except where something definitely changed like "disabled rolling stop". This user summarized the 10.10.2 release with his...

    FSD Beta Videos (and questions for FSD Beta drivers)

    FSD Beta will occasionally (xxxxxxx) but only if the safety driver lets it. Isn't that true of just about everything though? Can you think of anything FSD Beta does that is entirely uncontrollable by the driver? In fact if there was, that would probably be grounds to immediately stop using...

    Confusion about FSD and AP

    Maybe it would be helpful for Tesla to show the FSD Beta option but greyed out and unavailable to anyone who does not have FSD Beta?

    Confusion about FSD and AP

    Unless I'm wrong, I believe you DO have all the options shown here. What you don't yet have is FSD Beta which then changes the look of the options screen when/if you get it. But you do have all these options now.

    If not interesting, it at least bears repeating until people understand. Paying for Full Self-Driving Capability, possibly getting to test FSD Beta in no way means you will get a car that drives itself, ever. FSD Beta may not ever be released, you might just get city line-following nanny...

    Autosteer on City Streets is not defined on Tesla's product page. All the other features are defined. I find that extremely telling. The other features are either highway based, or stopping for signals (but not starting again), or the parking features. Taken at face-value they in no way promise...

    FSD Beta 10.10 Release Notes

    I'll bet if you put up a hugely libelous billboard against Tesla full of untruths, you'll hear from Tesla soon enough. Legal PR is a form of PR.

    Yeah, this FSD Beta reversing behavior has Safety Recall written all over it. Reversing on a city street without notifying the driver, (and possibly not lighting the reverse lights and making the backing-up sound, anyone confirm Y/N?) has got to be up there with the most risky things to do...

    Other good cues are the sound of rain on the roof, and yes leverage the other cameras to determine whether it is raining. (somewhat /s I suppose). I think the point of the autowipers though is to keep the windshield clear, not to determine whether it's raining. You don't need wipers when...

    With driver watching a movie, Tesla on autopilot crashes into state trooper's cruiser - Aug 2020

    I bet if you take a poll of every Tesla driver (excluding those who read the TMC AI forum) you're going to find a majority who vastly overestimate the capability of the "auto.." features. None of these people expected to crash. People damaging their car on Smart Summon didn't expect the car...

    "It wouldn't have hit him, it definitely wouldn't have hit him". See how close it got to the cyclist AFTER the driver over-corrected the car back. Yes it would have hit him. But why is it turning into the cyclist?? (and why are some of them laughing?)
