    FSD Beta users share experience with technique

    Driving with assistive technology is slightly different than standard driving input. You need to have your hands ready, but relaxed. You need to focus on your 360 awareness, but you get to do that without the steering inputs wandering as your eyes do. You need to think ten, twenty seconds...

    FSD identifies and dodges the monorail

    Last time, FSD couldn't identify the grey pillars against the grey road background. It just didn't see them. This time, it knows there's something there! And it dodges. -Crissa

    How about a grill on the hitch?

    Interesting thing came across the local startups list: I'm not sure how practical it is, but it gives a new meaning to tailgate party. Kinda like the design Tesla showed, but tons simpler. -Crissa

    Sounds like they're offering a limited number of LFP battery packs to relieve their battery constraints. To think that Tesla is hitting their supply limitations and figuring ways around them. -Crissa

    Tesla FSD (9.2) vs oncoming car on single-lane street

    Best viewed on a phone. The top is a camera on the roof, giving about the view that FSD can see; the middle is from the cabin; the bottom is the 'mind of the AI' display. -Crissa

    Why does battery tech take so long to make? (example: 4680)

    Tesla AI actively preventing 'pedal misapplication mishaps'

    Tesla Daily had some clips of the AI presentation that was discussed already, but pulled out a clip used in the slide show. It shows people who accidentally hit the accelerator when they should have should have braked, and the AI deciding they need to stop because of visual cues. Rob Mauer's...

    I realized while letting this play while doing chores... This is exactly why Tesla isn't as badly affected by the chip shortage. They have reduced the number of electronic components in a car down by half from the big guys. -Crissa

    Canoo looks doomed: CEO and other founders leave company

    My short take? No startups survive losing founders and being taken over by board members. This famously nearly killed Apple. Even at Tesla, Elon had buy-in to the design at day one and a role at the company. Money guys rarely complete the job. -Crissa
