I'm not asking this question to get around the system. I'm asking because the system seems to ignore me. I frequently prop my arm on my knee and hold the steering wheel. This results in little weight/pressure on the wheel but I do have a full grip on it. When I use Autopilot -- which is a lot, I just finished a 1300 mile run -- I will keep a hand on the wheel but often propped up as described. Autopilot regularly yells at me to hold the wheel, even though I am. I've found I usually have to jig the wheel a little, wiggling the car in the lane, to turn off the warning. This isn't critical, but with all the Autopilot freak-out news (when I was leaving on this run my Dad told me goodbye and not to rely on Autopilot) and reports that Tesla's data showed the driver wasn't holding the wheel, it makes me worry a bit. If someone hit me, but then Tesla's data showed I wasn't holding the wheel, would I be more liable than if I were in a car without Autopilot and someone hit me? And even though I WAS holding the wheel? My very informal experiments MIGHT indicate that two hands on the top half of the wheel stave off the warning, but results are inconclusive. Can anyone tell me how to keep my car happy and convinced that I'm paying attention? Thanks!
