Auto pilot doesn’t detect deer

The list of things that AutoPilot is expected to detect: cars, trucks. The list of things that AutoPilot is NOT expected to detect: every other physical thing in the universe.

There, that should clear it up.:p

My X always see trucks as cars, and it hates Porsche. Most times, it displays a Porsche 997/911/Cayman as a truck.

Anyone tried a moose?

Elon was not so confident on the moose back in 2016. From a quarterly conference call “Yeah it’s a good question. Actually, it should work for something like a moose – because it is quite a big mass, but it may not work for say a small deer. A small deer probably would not trigger braking, but a moose I think would. I’m not 100% sure of that, but I think it would trigger on a moose.”
