oscar mode? [my car detects garbage cans all the time]


Mar 24, 2020
I noticed that my m3 non-fsd has been very keen in picking up (the graphic showing on the display) garbage bins on the side of the road on both the left side and right side of the street. More sensitive than picking up humans and sometimes even parked cars. I call it oscar mode for oscar the grouch. While driving i notice it ignored the garbage truck but showed the bin in front of it. This will work great if i was driving a garbage truck :) I am having less and less confidence with the tesla detecting actual danger like my blind spot and cross traffic when i am backing up.
