Mildly Interesting Autopilot Video

I suspect it did better because of the car in front of you. I wonder if that car hadn't been there if it would have had more trouble. But either way I tend to be pretty impressed by AutoPilot's ability to follow the road, even in strange conditions.

The expected width would not make sense. To narrow between left an center, and center and right. The object recognition expects them to be within some limits.

Be very cautious in construction zones. You can get burned.
I think the car can negotiate bad lane markings like you showed when and if enough previous Tesla cars have negotiated the same stretch of road. At least, this is what Tesla's statements led me to believe. But -- conditions can change every day in construction zones, so please be extra careful. I have been burned, but no accidents yet. Plenty of other people have been caught by such anomalies, though.

no, the car in front has nothing to do with the analysis. Good thought tho. You'll get the same results with no car in front. Go try it and see.

I’ve had AP choose the correct lane through a lane switch over also. This was multiple curves and remaining multiple lines from different phases of construction.

All I could say was “How could you possibly figure that mess out???????”
