Dr. Mary (Missy) Louise Cummings should be opposed for NOT really being expert on FSD for cars

Secondly Radar resolution has gotten better. Waymo for example uses 4D high resolution imaging radar.
In comparison to Tesla's current radar which gives 400 points per second, Waymo and Mobileye's next gen radar give you around 500k points per second.
That's 500k vs 400 in radar resolution. That's over 1250x times more resolution.
That is magnitudes more detail. Millimetric?
What is price difference between the RADAR units?
 

It's in the ongoing TMC stonk miser thread, but in you don't look there...
Yes, she is toxic … it was a very poor appointment, even by the usual very low standards …
 
The only really useful radar data gained would be if the radar is a Doppler radar to detect wind shear, as in driving into a cut and a 20 mph cross wind suddenly is gone, then when you come out the other side get hit with an unexpected 60 mph cross wind. I just don't see radar being much help with rain, snow, fog, etc. Currently FSDb issues an alert if it detects visual interference and will drop clear out if degradation is bad enough.

… and the situation is the same even if you have all the worlds Radars and Lidars in the car.

Visual recognition is the primary input for decision making, and other sensors aid to confirm the visual data and for finer refinements. This is true for every autonomous car out there. Take out or degrade the visual input, car goes blind, radar or no radar.
