Evidently you missed it but a presentation by Telas's Dr. Karpathy was posted in No. 23. You should watch that and pay particular attention around 26:55 et seq.No, that's not what Tesla is saying.
No. Actually what he says is that they didn't handle the fusion right and it's not worth fixing this as vision by itself is good enough. He would never say vision by itself is better than vision plus radar because it is untrue unless the radar is faulty and Tesla's is. Can it be fixed? He says it can. Is it worth doing? He says it is not.They have told us that vision only will perform at a higher level than vision plus radar.
What we hear is influenced by our previous experiences and knowledge. What I hear from Dr. Karpathy is, evidently, quite different from what you or my wife would hear.
Yes, yes they do and sonar and GPS too. Were they able to drive in the past without those things? Yes, of course they were so you might question whether they are really needed. But the goal of FSD is not only to save labour but to make transport safer. Vision certainly has a role to play in this but so do sonar, radar, lidar, GPS, Glonass, electronic guideways...Humans don't use radar to drive.
