Thats what I figured.That would be quite difficult -- you need to do 1000km each workday day, and be able to find fast chargers every 250km.
That makes a big difference!Ford Escape. Did about a 800 km to 1k km per week.
I made a mistake in my previous post. I did about $600 per month in fill ups not weekly. Sorry!
It is very hard for humans to maintain focus when they have nothing to do. Honestly, the only safe way for a human to focus on driving is to ((*&)(*&^ drive. I have no problem with the computer driving, but it needs to be at least as good as a human. Relying on a human to take over from the computer is *&^(*&^ idiotic. Not only is the human not paying 100% attention, they need to process that something is going to happen and the computer has screwed up and isn't going to deal with it in time and then they need to take corrective action. That is a hell of a long chain to get through before the obstacle.Why would people blindly trust AutoPilot in their cars? I mean sure it's great but I don't know how secure I would be to just let the car do it's thing. I've seen videos of people sleeping during their commute and it's great...but I guess I just don't trust the technology enough yet.
Based on the bs Tesla spews, it was the drivers fault. In reality, the fault rests primarily on Tesla for rolling out a system that as you accurately put it, provides a false sense of security.Its surprising that the NHTSA allowed such a widespread roll out of the Tesla autopilot system. What would have happened if there was a road crew working behind those pylons? Who kills them, the computer or the inattentive driver?
Tesla can do nothing wrong in the eyes of many and they will cover themselves with ‘driver is responsible for taking control when needed’ BS line.Based on the bs Tesla spews, it was the drivers fault. In reality, the fault rests primarily on Tesla for rolling out a system that as you accurately put it, provides a false sense of security.
The upside to his obscenely dangerous experiment is it is probably the fastest way to close the loop (collect data, test code, fail, check data, update code, test again, etc). The fact that people may die in his quest for being the first to achieve real self-driving doesn't seem to bother him.Human-factors engineering is not something which is fully understood. There is good reason why other manufacturers are going slow with this. Tesla, and specifically Elon Musk, isn't experienced enough to understand why that's how it has to be. They are still claiming that full self driving is coming soon. If it is, incidents like this shouldn't be happening.
Its ultimately a Tesla error but the driver has to take some of the blame forWhere is the resident Tesla guru? SunnY S -- it this a Tesla or Driver error??

Who the hell thought it was ok to fall asleep behind the wheel of a vehicle? Autopilot or not you are stupid to do this.Autopilot fail
