    Hello all,

    I am looking for a Tesla owner that would agreeable to participate in some vehicle testing in the Toronto area. We are trying to model two of the auto pilot features; the lane change and following a curved road. I would instrument the vehicle was a high-precision GPS (it is magnetic, fixed to the roof). I would then ask the owner to operate the vehicle on a highway, change lanes many times both manually and using the auto pilot, and also do this for following a curved road. I will not be asking to drive myself (or be in the driver's seat).

    A few things:

    - This has nothing to do with the recent fatal collision in the United States.
    - We are not looking to fault Tesla with anything whatsoever (if I had the money, I would buy one), this is purely curiosity on our part. We have a good idea of how humans change lanes, we'd like to measure how Tesla does it.
    - We are not looking for testing of any of the collision avoidance options (braking, etc.).

    Please advise if you are interested. Some compensation for your time/use of your vehicle can be arranged.

    Mark

    I might be, but won't be back in the city for a few weeks. What's your timeline?

    A few weeks is fine, it isn't too urgent. More of a side project. Let me know when you a better idea of when you'll be around and have some time.
