Last night I drove from Monterey Peninsula to San Diego (~7 hours). This requires crossing some mountains to get from 101 to 5 and in this 20-30 mile stretch was heavy fog. Must be common as there is a persistent sign that lights up warning about this condition.
This fog persisted onto route 5 for some 10 miles maybe. In that space, no less than 1/2 dozen times (maybe more) auto steer disabled due to visibility issues. Eventually so did cruise control as well.
How is FSD going to be able to drive me in bad weather when the humans were able to safely navigate, at no greater than 50mph I'd say, but the cameras alone could not (was wishing for radar to be used I guess)
This event followed some earlier days in the week where, at one time or another, both side mounted cameras were blinded by sun.
Just made me wonder
It’s past time where this problem should be captured into some number of automated test cases. Sure the test cases won’t achieve 100% coverage but doing so would be moving the problem to new & eventually more complex conditions to occur.
Interesting to see your feedback because 10.8 was a regression for me. To leave or return to my neighborhood I have several turns about 200 feet apart and it now accelerates way too much just to stop and then make a turn. That problem had been fixed but returned. Once I get 10.9 I'll know right away if the behavior is improved for me. I suspect my neighbors are wondering why I've all of a sudden started driving faster in the neighborhoodFrom reddit the full release notes ..
Have to chuckle at (7) - "launches from stop more calm when there is an imminent slowdown nearby". Though I've to say there has been a steady improvement on this. FSD no longers tries to speed upto max when there is a car infront a few hundred feet away. They have to do that when there are turns upcoming too ...
