    This is how a fully autonomous Tesla would look like



    When do you think we might have a fully autonomous tesla by ?

    I voted 2025, but I hope the Model 3 will come with full autonomous capabilities by 2020

    Fully autonomous when the states can legalize it. Early as 2018 :)!

    Fully autonomous might be harder than you think. not just government legalize

    The current AP can't even stop at a stoplight or stop sign, we're not even close yet to full autonomous. It may be hardware capable by 2020, but there will be legislation approval that will slow it down.

    Of course, the legacy automakers will also want to slow down the development/approval by making sure there is some kind of national "standard" and vehicle to vehicle communication/identification.

    I think it would be more reliable and efficient to have smart signs and lights that communicated with autonomous vehicles instead of cars using machine vision and neural networks/fuzzy logic.

    Judging something by what it isn't designed to do is silly. Judge it by what it is designed to do, and how well it delivers on that feature set.

    "Ferraris don't tow boats very well." No kidding. Ford trucks don't tend to set track records either. Neither data point is very useful to discuss, or form the basis of a critique of either platform.

    How do you know what the AP is designed to do? We only what it is capable of currently doing by what has been released. The subject of this thread is autonomous and there is a huge gap between what is feature capable today and what the car is expected to do in autonomous.

    Just pointing that gap out.

    I agree with you, there is still a huge cap to full autonomous Tesla's
    And yes, maybe by 2020 all Tesla's will have autonomous hardware, but more time will take until the software allowing the cars to be fully autonomous to be out

    Isn't stopping at a stop sign just a matter of meshing map(google) and driver data?

    No, the vehicle needs to see the sign on the road

    The current autopilot hardware DOES see stop signs and street signals. The ability to react to them has not yet been enabled. During the "D" launch event they had a test track setup where the car read speed limit signs and reacted accordingly and stopped at a stop sign.

    I am wondering when they will enable Autopilot to drive in roundabouts ?
