Hey guys, this video was just posted on reddit to the r/Teslamotors subreddit:
Full steering wheel is what I saw. Anyone catch anything about the interface and a potential heads up display?
Nope, but the car looks bigger than I thought (good!).
Very Cool! But just the same car that was at the reveal, notice the retracted S door handles. I kinda hope those are an option instead of the manual ones the other prototypes have.
This is why you need a deployable drone on your car for a full 360.
It does not need a grill, or mustache.
Good looking car. I liked the Model S escort team as well.
Awesome! Looking forward to seeing those things swarm the Bay Area starting next year(ish).
Love that matte black color but I would never want to care for it.
Wow that looks amazing. Aggressive, very sporty.
It looks like it has the turbine wheels instead of the ones from the reveal.
Agreed; looks like 21" wheels to me. I wonder if they are testing ranges across the various wheel sizes?
ohh how cute... Big brother(s) taking care of little 3. They don't let him go out alone yet. Notice the S behind (and in front of?) it.
Nice drive ... Hwy 280?
OK here is a crazy possibility, what if the model S escort team isn't just to help out the model 3 since it's a test prototype, but rather Tesla is testing advance AP (2.0 and beyond).
Sure the model 3 driver is holding the steering wheel, but there are a few reasons this could be happening :
- they are done testing
- testing requires a human to steer
- for safety the driver is required to keep his hands on the steering wheel at all times
What I believe Tesla might be testing is network AP. Tesla knows there will be hundreds of thousands of their cars on the road in the next few years, if we assume Tesla is encouraging people to use the AP, it's easy to imagine why network AP would be beneficial. Instead of you traveling on the highway with AP by yourself, your Tesla could detect another Tesla 20 yards away traveling in the same direction as you, so for convenience and safety both cars could travel single file on the same lane. Two Tesla driving with AP and sharing traffic information would be safer than a single one, plus they would probably be safer than two cars being driven by two different individuals.
I really think Tesla isn't just testing the 3, but instead Tesla is using their cars to test how well three networked AP cars could drive themselves.
I dont think this is crazy. I think this is the progress that they are working towards. Think of even little things like getting an alert on your screen that traffic has stopped up ahead bc another tesla reached the accident first or whatever. Similar to what Google does with its users of maps and waze etc... Of course tesla has the advantage of also allowing their cars to talk to each other and prevent them from hitting each other or something along those lines too. This all requires very fast data connections for real time updates over long distances, but short range sensors could help initiate other things in close proximity.
Yes, this is highway 280 in California. They are driving North West back to headquarters in Palo Alto.
I'm going to have to start watching the cars now as this is my hood.
That thought crossed my mind, and then I realized I'm probably a lunatic, and didn't post it.
I saw this video of M3 on what look like black 22 inch rims, and MS door handles...oh Boy!!!
