Tesla's "Full Self-driving" video

That guy is haulin ass!

At stop signs the car decides if it's safe to go? I wonder if it avoids potholes and is aware if it's in a state where passing on the right is legal?

That car would have to come with restraints to keep the "driver's" hands off the wheel and Attends to, well you know what.

I admire Elon Musk's space stuff, but he is doing the environment no favors with the Tesla and abetting the huge scam of self-driving vehicles with this crap.

I wrote about this before, but when I test-drove my old boss's Model X, it was smart enough to autopilot on the highway. And it was a revelation.

I was confident in the car while it was driving -- it did a perfect job of it -- and when it came time for me to take the wheel back, I was suddenly NOT confident in my own abilities. Tracking the lane at 60 MPH? I am obviously worse at it than the car.


I read up on yesterday's Autonomy day presentation. Tesla has designed their own custom CPU so the car can do all the above. Teslas are really more computers than cars, now.

Musk says full autonomy by 2020. Musk says Tesla owners will be able to add their own cars to the Tesla self-driving taxi fleet, when they aren't using them. Musk says Tesla owners will be able to make more than the cost of the car by doing that. So Musk says it is financially irresponsible to buy anything else, especially since Teslas will actually improve over time, making them less of a financial risk. Musk says all the self-driving companies using LIDAR are going to be behind in the game.

We shall see!

Let strangers go joyriding in my car when I'm not using it? That's crazy talk.:eyebrow:

Musk is saying they will have a fleet of a million robo-taxis with full "level 5" autonomy NEXT YEAR!

could be a statement just for investors... there will be huge regulatory problems to face even if it works that well...

As a pedestrian, this concerns me a little bit. I'd like some reassurances that these things don't run people over.

And why the hell are Metrorail trains still driven by people?

I'm like he only just now got production up to 5000 cars per week, there's no wai he will have 1M unowned cars out on roads in 18 months. We'll see

I wonder how long before there is a social stratification in what cars are available where/when. Drunk folks puke in taxis, I don't want them puking in "my" car. Or we'll have to create a passenger credit-rating, and then we can restrict our cars to users above a certain ranking.

See social credit system

I found a link, they are considered art.

xoxoxoBruce 04-25-2019 11:18 PM

I'll buy that, and add there is an awful lot of stuff labeled art that I don't like.
