    Posting this here because the Model S forum is the busiest on the site - hoping to get some support for this idea.

    Autopilot/AI/autonomous driving is on the bleeding edge of computer science and engineering right now - I for one would like a dedicated forum to put threads discussing this topic. Currently the AP threads are kind of scattershot - some in "driving dynamics" other in "user interface" etc.

    I'd defer to the mods and Doug on this, so I'll discuss with them. Thanks for the input.

    Agree. It's been hard sometimes to know which thread to post in for AP/AI for Model S. And it seems harder to find the right forum with the new GUI. "Hover overs" don't always designate which thread the post is in.

    I do think that splitting out the user interface and Autopilot stuff from Model S and combining it is a good idea. There is plenty of overlap in a lot of areas, but I think these are incredibly close, so they should somehow be combined.

    Tesla Software
    -- User Interface
    -- Autopilot

    The downside is that threads are still likely to be created in the vehicle subforums that belong in the general software subforum. Mods will have (more) work cut out for them.

    I think it's a good idea too.

    I agree that autopilot should be separated.

    (I understand why it will likely be multiple sub-forums under each model but I'd rather it not be since the issues will apply to all models.)
