    Can a crippled autopilot still avoid a €300.000 collision in v9.0? - Testing the Tesla

    Taking testing of Tesla's autopilot to the limits with disabling the sensors and seeing what it still can do. Auto lane change now uses (predominantly) the cameras instead of the ultrasonics. Impressed by the results and I believe this is now a good implementation to keep it as much as possible...

    Romance Mode: what does it do for the battery?

    In this video I try to find out whether getting all snuggly and cosy actually drains your battery? It turns out to be quite alright, so don't let that stop you from getting it on in your car :eek:;)

    Testing The Tesla - Update 2018.48.1 has some minor UI changes and a big surprise

    Am I actually responsible for making a change to the #Tesla software in update 2018.48.1? If that would be true, that would be awesome and that was also the initial setup of my Youtube channel: to help improve the product! I'm not really taking credit for this, but like to think that at least I...

    Tesla remotely fixes my car while on a road trip

    In this second part of my 1280km road trip, I got some good aikido practise, but also got confronted again with the camera issue, but Tesla managed to solve the issue remotely!

    Taking v9.0 on a road trip and discovering some issues (part 1)

    This weekend, I took the car out on a 1280km / 967mi road trip to Germany for another aikido seminar. But along the way I discovered a few issues with the update and the autopilot cameras, disabling the auto lane change. Seems there are some issues with the alignment, like they had in the...

    Testing the Tesla: official release (2018.42.2) on Belgian roads

    As usual, I've taken the Tesla for a spin on my test route to see where we got some improvements. Compared to the unofficial release I tested last week, there are some minor improvements. But in general, I really love the progress V9 brings us!

    Tesla v9.0 interface (2018.39.7) also has a new Easter Egg

    Of course, we need to do the mandatory V9.0 interface review as well. A lot has changed and even though I was afraid it would not be good, it is actually a quite logical makeover. Camera at the bottom of the screen should be resolved in a next release, Elon promised. Please forgive the static...

    Update 2018.39.7 (V9) on Belgian roads: it finally nails the dreaded S-curve!

    Today I had the opportunity to test the unofficial version of V9 (remember, us non-US folks do not seem to have the right to get the software update officially yet :-( ) Thanks to the new neural net that also take all 8 cameras into account, the improvement we're seeing is unlike any other. Even...

    4-CH dashcam setup + coverage of footage around the car

    Yesterday, I installed another 4-channel dashcam in a #Tesla Model S, so I thought you might be interested in the way it is set up. And I've also included footage of the coverage around the car.

    Road trip video: taking the Tesla dashcam business international

    While I was somewhat worried about Tesla's own dashcam feature, when it turned out to be pretty lame in feature-richness (but good video quality), and the fact that the feature is only for HW2.5+ cars :-(, I don't see the dashcam business collapsing anytime soon :). Proof of that was when a...

    Tesla called me to ask if I wanted to order new key fobs

    At first Tesla couldn't confirm, but now they've called me to ask whether I wanted to order new key fobs to replace my old ones that have the security flaw. But I would have to pay for them.

    Update 2018.34.1 introduces a new safety warning

    While this update has virtually no differences with 2018.32.4 (which introduced the PIN to drive feature), the latest version has introduced a new safety feature that beeps at you when you use AP on intersections that it's not comfortable handling. And that's a good thing! Now, before I get the...

    Thoughts on the new PIN to drive safety feature

    Tesla added a new PIN code option to enable the car as a safety feature. After driving around with it for a couple of days, I noticed some quirks that could use some improvements to improve both safety and usability

    Unit Police - kW vs kWh vs Wh/km (or Wh/mi)

    Since I'm still seeing a lot of confusion about EV energy units and when to use which one, I made a video to hopefully clear this up once and for all.

    Good news: software update 2018.32.2 solves nearly all bugs introduced in 2018.28.1

    Put the latest updates through its paces today and I am a happy camper in the sense that it solves nearly all issues I had with the previous update. Check it out here:

    AutoPilot 2.0: 2018.28.1 is the worst update in a very long time

    While we've seen a huge improvement at the beginning of the year with the rewrite of the AI system, and we have seen small incremental improvements over the past few months, for some strange reason this update now takes us way back with a number of regression bugs as well as new bugs. The...

    Found out how much energy you gain by driving down a mountain road

    How much energy do you gain from driving down Eagle Road, a steep mountain road descending into Geiranger, Norway, in a #Tesla Model S?

    Driving down one of the steepest roads in Norway

    Going down Stalheimskleiva, near Gudvangen. This is one of the steepest roads in Norway, with an 18% downgrade and dropping 218m!
