    I've been looking for testing/verification of Tesla's safety features - but so far have not found any forums in which Tesla voluntarily participates in (apart for the required crash test ratings or 3rd party companies that buy Tesla's for testing like Consumer Reports)...

    All the other major auto manufacture's seem to particate in "lunch and learns" where their cars are publicly validated....

    Tesla is strangely absent from autonomous-related testing....

    Autopilot is in beta and it is not a finished product so I don't imagine Tesla wants to participate a third party validation test.

    The target keeps changing!

    It had zero AEB if you first bought AP2 in October 2016.

    If you are a tester at that time, Tesla would flunk an AEB test!

    Now it does have AEB!

    Autopilot wouldn't work beyond 35 MPH on a highway on December 2016, now it works up to 90 MPH!

    That's why we have youtubers who have the patience to keep on testing Tesla :)

    Haha. No, it doesn't give you all the answers you want. But there is a program. Info from participants rarely leaks, but sometimes you'll see info about the new software coming on one of the fan blogs when someone gets a little too talkative.

    No, sorry. Word is that they reach out to identified owners based on a variety of criteria, but they don't accept volunteers. Elon did talk about it briefly at a shareholder meeting a few years ago.
