Yes, but they have done millions of miles of autonomous driving. Waymo reported 1.4 million miles of autonomous driving to the CA DMV for the 2019 year. Tesla only reported 12 miles.
But if we go by reported stats Tesla is the only one that reported a 0% disengagement rate.
But even those companies say that the CA autonomous driving reports are completely worthless. Tesla could have done 10 billion miles of autonomous driving in CA, with the nag enabled, and they wouldn't have to report any of it. (i.e. they are keeping their progress, or lack of progress, secret.)
And if the report is so meaningless, why do any companies report anything?
Why didn't Waymo do its 1.4 million miles of autonomous driving and not report it?
Also, you need at least 1 disengagement for the disengagement rate to mean anything.
They report it because they are required to by law.
If Tesla had 10 billion miles with 0 disengagements that number would be meaningless?
Yes, if Tesla did autonomous miles, even with the nag, they would be required to report it. Uber even got in trouble because they tried to do autonomous miles but not report it by claiming it was only L2.
Waymo has driver engagement monitoring and I bet everyone else does too. Doesn't really matter since the regulations say nothing about driver engagement monitoring.I suggest you go read the reporting requirements. Did Uber actually have a driver engagement nag enabled? Or were they just claiming L2 because they required a driver to monitor it? There is a big difference. (One requires reporting the other doesn't.)
Yep: Waymo reportedly returns safety drivers to its autonomous cars
Waymo has driver engagement monitoring and I bet everyone else does too. Doesn't really matter since the regulations say nothing about driver engagement monitoring.
(1) An autonomous test vehicle does not include vehicles equipped with one or more systems that provide driver assistance and/or enhance safety benefits but are not capable of, singularly or in combination, performing the dynamic driving task on a sustained basis without the constant control or active monitoring of a natural person.
There's also this:If Tesla requires active monitoring it doesn't count as an "autonomous test vehicle".
SAE J3016 said:the level of driving automation system feature corresponds to the feature’s production design intent ... As such, it is incorrect to classify a level 4 design-intended ADS feature equipped on a test vehicle as level 2 simply because on-road testing requires a test driver to supervise the feature while engaged, and to intervene if necessary to maintain safe operation.
For the purposes of this article, an “autonomous test vehicle” is equipped with technology that makes it capable of operation that meets the definition of Levels 3, 4, or 5 of the SAE International’s Taxonomy and Definitions for Terms Related to Driving Automation Systems for On-Road Motor Vehicles, standard J3016 (SEP2016), which is hereby incorporated by reference.
Yes, they spend an inordinate amount of time and money writing vision for lidar.
Haha. That is very often not the case in tech.First company to have a solution available to unrestricted general public use, not necessarily for purchase, but for general public use, wins!
