LOL. Fox News/CNN get just a million or so viewers a day (out of 100 million+ US adults). How widely is CR really circulated / read ?
I did - but did they really influence consumer behavior ? Why do you think Tesla is allowing a handful of beta testers to post on youtube ...CR itself? Probably not many. But did you not see all the headlines, "Consumer Reports ranks Tesla last in driver assistance systems" or whatever? They have an axe to grind for sure.
I was wondering if this creeped anyone out besides me. We already have enough Big Brothers watching us. Not sure FSD is worth that to me. That's a huge step in the wrong direction on just about every front, except technological.My camera will remain firmly taped over, thanks. Tesla already knows enough about what's happening with the car and where it goes, I don't need them to be looking inside it too.
Companies should clearly state their policies in terms of what they do with the camera data. It should be to process locally and give warnings. It shouldn't be recorded or transmitted. Regular independent audit should be done to make sure this is strictly adhered to.I was wondering if this creeped anyone out besides me. We already have enough Big Brothers watching us.

Not doing a camera based driver attention system only makes sense if you believe Tesla really is super close to achieving driverless FSD. Do you really believe that Tesla is super close to driverless FSD where driver attention is not needed?
I don't believe that Tesla is super close to driverless FSD. So I think it makes sense to spend resources on adding a camera based driver monitoring system for several reasons:
1) It would allow hands-free immediately while we wait for driverless FSD.
2) It could also be used to add safety for people who don't have FSD.
3) It would allow Tesla to release FSD sooner, with driver supervision, and have a more reliable way of making sure the driver is monitoring FSD.
You don’t think people will cheat a camera? I guess you didn’t see the pics of glasses with eyes on them posted in another thread. Unfortunately, there are plenty of people who love to cheat things like this.
I would assume you could tell if someone is paying attention even without seeing the eyes. Things such as head orientation, body position, hand location would tell you if they are actively engaged, even if eyeball position is not available.
Small edit, I suggest striking the red text...
I guess you are not aware of the several fatal crashes that have occurred on AP because the nag system did not detect that the driver was not paying attention.
working perfectly fine
