Phantom braking

Post by Nagaman »

I’m really looking forward to the update that finally stops the dangerous behaviour.
On a return from Bendigo down the McIvor Hwy the autopilot decided to ‘brake test’ a cement truck, on my tail in a line of traffic, at the speed limit. :oops:
B dangerous and embarrassing, and needs fixing before I’ll accept all this FSD spruiking.

Yeah I wouldn't use these features personally. Quite a few complaints from M3 owners finding their self-driving features trying to kill them... :o

The other dangerous aspect is corners will double lines and the propensity to dive to the outside of the bend, run onto the inner line and even the rumble strip separating them.
The thought of motorcyclists (or trucks) taking the ‘racing line’ doesn’t bare thinking about.

Maybe that’s what I experienced on Wednesday on the Goulburn Valley fwy when we were cruising at just 80 behind another vehicle and some hesitation occurred as traffic blew past at 110.
The latest update has made significant speed differences between lanes a potential hazard.........but slowing the slower traffic doesn’t make sense. Dips, shadows .....any excuse it seems.

A YouTuber - Cf Tesla, has just brought to my attention that update 8.1 might be a trial for just a few and I might be a guinea pig for proving purposes. He says he’s on 12.1 having skipped 8.1 .........does that sound plausible?.
All I know is that basic autopilot isn’t to be trusted under some traffic circumstances

Unplugged ev is on 4.1 and his car tried several times to update to 8.1 but kept failing to update. Then the update stop being listed. After talking to tesla he managed to get out of them that 8.1 is buggy and they've back pedalled on the roll out and that's why his car is no longer trying to update.

^^^^^^ dead right it’s buggy.
This afternoon we got full regen out in the middle of nowhere.
It decided we were suddenly in a 50 k zone ......after around 4 kms it decided we weren’t.
If something big had been on our tail I shudder to think of the consequences.

Do I really have to have a Twitter account to get the message across....!
