Completely agree - people should be careful to write off FSD. While it may seem like it's taking long time to hammer out all the issues, the path forward is in place and Dojo will be what takes it from 80-95% usable to 99.99%
Agree. When I was working on DARPA funded AI projects, "learn by observing", etc was one of the hot topics.

Problem is that four nines isn't nearly enough.

While that might be better than human drivers, it depends on where you're driving. I'm guessing people who go over Mullholland Drive or Highway 1 (or insert your favorite mountain road with no guardrails) would not find that acceptable!

60 ghz band is dangerious and causes cancer because it is the resonant frequency of oxygen. That's why propagation is so short due to high energy absorbsion by oxygen. The military was working on a 60 ghz microwave cannon but it got shut down due to danger of it falling into the wrong hands. Exploding Red blood cells carrying oxygen would not be a good thing for the body. I hope Tesla researches this well before they adopt it. I don't want it on my cybertruck. There are many articles on this. Here is one below.

I’m old enough to remember the first “McQuter”, that’s right people couldn’t get the name right. Then the cellphone, or Bagphone, whatever, tube type tv’s, and bulky cameras that required a visit to the local shop to get your film developed. FSD, He’ll Yea!!! I’m all in and hope I live long enough to wave at traffic from the passenger side of my CT as it takes me home from the factory.

Millimeter radar waves at 60 ghz are dangerious and can cause cancer. Tesla, please don't go down this rabbit hole. Just Google it to learn more.

Dude, you already posted your alarmist crap without reading that the band they're using does not overlap the section you're complaining about. It would do them no good to go over 60Ghz.

Isn't 60GHz absorbed by oxygen? I wonder if this will have effects on health tbh.

You do know you replied to a thread over 3 years old? To the best of my knowledge the Cybertruck does not have a forward facing RADAR. It does have an interior RADAR. Tesla has a love hate relationship with RADAR. My 2018 Model S has it but they have turned it off or they did at one point I'm actually not sure if it is active again. Strangely enough I believe the newer Model S and X come with a forward facing RADAR. Elon hates RADAR and especially Lidar and wants to rely totally on vision.
