I have received this update today and i have installed, however i feel autopilot or better said, autosteer, keeps steering little left then little to the right, then left again, then right, it does it softly but noticeable, when keeping the car inside the lane. I have to try it again, since it was not good weather, but i didn't have that feeling before with 2019.32.11 neither with V9 in very similar weather conditions. Does Somebody has experience the same?

Yes. I have noticed is sways a bit recently when nothing has changed in road width or the blue lines on the display, whichever applies ;0-

It still also has trouble with on/off ramps that aren't painted on the street to indicate what's happening. Not sure when it will be able to default to the only line it can depend on, instead of trying to be in the middle all the time. I suspect sign recognition will be the fix for this??

I’ve had that slight ping ponging on certain roads since I got my X. SC said everything was fine and it was normal. Hopefully this update doesn’t make it worse.

I noticed this with v10. Tends to happen when proximity sensors detect an object in adjacent lane. Definitely new behavior, and very subtle.

Is that with HW3 ? I saw a comment about that a couple of days back on Reddit.

There is a certain road on my commute where my SR+ works great on AP, but my coworkers P3 has about a 1/2Hz ping pong. I was wondering if it related to the sticker performance tires or his HW3 vs my HW2.5. Both on 2019.32.11. I just updated to 32.11.1, we'll see how the morning commute goes.

Appears that the cars will shift away from adjacent vehicles, especially large trucks. Ping-pong may be a tuning problem with 11.1. Sometimes it is a sensor problem, but I would wait for the next update.

What I’ve noticed today during a long commute to work is that indeed the car slightly moves to the left side of the lane (and then back again to the center of the lane) when passing trucks. Each and every time and only when passing trucks. Even when the truck is in the center of it’s own lane, so it doesn’t seem to be any behavior to compensate for trucks that are slightly to the left (and therefore close to your lane). However, this behavior only occurs when there is an adjacent lane to your left (dotted line to the left). So, highways with more then two lanes. Here in The Netherlands most highways only have two lanes and when such is the case the car sticks to the center of the road and does not move to the left when passing a truck. That’s why I first did not notice, until I got to a three lane highway. Even when a truck is slightly to the left side of it’s lane and phantom braking might occur the car stick to the center. The reason for not moving to the left in such cases might be that the car’s logic tells it it is ‘not allowed’ to move to the left, Because of the solid line.

I do like the aspect of the ‘awareness’ of trucks, but I would have expected this behavior only when a truck is close to your lane. As I mentioned; to compensate and prevent phantom braking. I hope Tesla will adjust and improve this behavior, because with lot’s of traffic and a lot of trucks the car is constantly moving out of the center and back again. Another downside is that cars to your left sometimes think you’re moving into their lane and then brake or adjust their center driving.......

Thanks for your answer, btw, i am also located in The Netherlands. I saw this behavior mostly lately with raining, but not always when having cars/trucks on my side lanes, also without them. When stop raining, i realized it was working much better, but maybe i was on a 2 lane highways, don’t remember, neither i didn’t realized about it, i will keep track of those things in the next days.
To be continued... but indeed, the awareness is good, but i think, it need a little bit of polishing
