The strange thing is that the car clearly “sees” it, but turns a blind eye and rams straight forward.
Is this the true level of FSD?
Slap in the face just after complimenting? No one expected that the Tesla FSD, which is known as “stronger than human drivers”, is actually this virtue:
In the case of accurately identifying the tram, he resolutely turned to the left, as if he did not take it seriously. Fortunately, the owner took over in time, and there was no accident.
And judging from the video footage, the road conditions are not complicated, there are few vehicles and few pedestrians at the intersection.
How did the driver react after the incident?
The tone was a little flat and helpless, “My car almost hit this tram, this is really not good, I have to report it to Tesla.” Even the video title seems to have some subject-verb inversion: “The tram almost hit My Tesla!”
What do netizens think about this?
Most of them are mistrust and doubts, such as “How can you identify people even if trolleybuses can’t be identified?”
Another example is “You can’t expect the autonomous driving to notice these sudden, hard-to-recognize objects, like this tram.”
Others said, “Is this all legal on the road?”
But there are also more moderate attitudes: “It’s just a beta version, and drivers should be vigilant and take over the vehicle at any time.”
In addition, the little brother also mentioned some bugs in the video: obviously want to turn left, but the car does not stop on the turning lane; obviously want to go straight, but always keep turning on the left turn signal.
In fact, the latest version of FSD, 10.12.2, has only been launched for about a month, and Musk said that he is expanding the test fleet to 100,000 vehicles.
What’s the feedback from other car owners?
Reviews on the Tesla Motors Club website are mixed, but overwhelmingly skeptical.
For example, someone sighed, “Drink drivers are better than him.”
Some netizens listed various shortcomings in detail: “The car drives too fast”, “Sometimes it’s too timid”, “The steering wheel turns like crazy, it doesn’t look like a person at all”, “The speed change is better than Autopilot. do better”, “makes me a little nervous”.
Some netizens complained about “too close to the road”, “too close to parked vehicles”, “too fast in residential areas”, and “hesitating at the intersection”.
Another netizen said, “The main problem for me is that I can’t identify speed bumps and zebra crossings, and I usually have to do it myself.”
Some netizens also gave a warm reminder:
Under normal circumstances, it is better not to open the Tesla FSD, unless you want to be like a Tesla tester: pay attention and report various problems in a timely manner;
Turn on the voice command “Report a Problem” to report your problem in time and describe your problem in detail;
Think of the FSD as what your 13-14 year old looks like when he drives for the first time;
While the performance is good, there is still a long way to go.
What’s improved in the next version of FSD?
According to the official introduction, compared to the old version, Tesla FSD 10.12.2 increases the maximum speed of automatic driving to 85mph (about 137km / h); the system also performs more smoothly, for example, the trajectory of the wheels will be smoother when steering at a large angle, No jagged lines appear.
At the same time, the decision-making structure has also been optimized, such as by enhancing the visibility of the vehicle moving forward, so as to better predict the degree of lane patency, more accurately identify pedestrians, bicycles and motorcycles, and more accurately identify whether the vehicle ahead is parked .
Regarding the next version of FSD, 10.13, Musk mentioned it on Twitter and in recent interviews, mainly in three aspects:
First, further improve the long unprotected left turn capability of the intersection.
Why did Musk specifically emphasize this feature?
Because for the automatic driving system, the left turn requires higher system perception ability, and it needs to identify and classify forward traffic lights, cross-lane changes (two-way lanes avoid opposite lanes), pedestrians, non-motor vehicles, etc. at the same time.
This not only requires the vehicle to have accurate perception of vehicles in all directions, but also requires the system to track and locate multiple traffic targets at the same time. At the regulation and control side, it is also necessary to combine traffic regulations to run a certain game algorithm in the scene.
Second, FSD will enable autonomous driving without map data.
This means that when the vehicle enters a road with a weak GPS signal or the map has not been updated, the FSD system will only rely on the visual sensing components to identify the road, vehicles and pedestrians, and conduct autonomous driving navigation.
The specific solution is to use “inertial measurement”, “wheel motion”, and “pure visual positioning” to do real-time perception, thereby simulating the scene model.
Third, at roundabouts, U-turns will do better.
As for when this version will be launched, some media predict that it will be July 10 this year.
