Would be it be overly conspiracy minded of me to think that this whole market walkdown is a punitive reminder of who's really in charge and what they'll do to us if we step out of line?
Not good, I guess the seat sensor may not be a thing?
Amid speculation about the cause of a fatal crash in Texas, Consumer Reports put Tesla Autopilot to the test on our track without a driver behind the wheel. Our testing shows that a Tesla will drive with no one in the driver seat.www.consumerreports.org
Annoyed by the MM and their FUD attacks. Got to give them credit for suppressing the SP prior to earnings...of course it’s pretty easy when you cheat.
Interesting how the whole news cycle is consumed with defeating Tesla safety measures while using AP since Elon said logs indicated AP was NOT engaged. This whole episode sure makes it hard for me to ever trust ANYTHING that I read from ANYWHERE.
You guys entertain me more than the markets do.I agree with CR's outrage about this. Tesla should do much better.
The interior camera should detect when the driver slits his wrists, drinks bleach, or crawls out a window at high speed. Given Tesla's expertise in robotics, a robotic arm should reach out from the dashboard and bitchslap the driver's face when such behavior is detected. This should not be a problem technically, since neural nets can distinguish faces from other areas, such as buttocks... although when the driver attempts to exit a window, the car should trap him by raising the glass and apply multiple slaps to the accessible area. Then the car should contact law enforcement, and decelerate over the bumpiest part of the road shoulder to enhance the human behavior modification.
You laugh? All this is technically possible. Tesla could offer it as an option: the Suicidal Drunken Imbecile Package ($20k). Then CR will have to complain that the slaps are too stern, or not stern enough, or totally ineffective if the driver likes to be slapped.
