On the Internet, you often hear netizens shout out such arguments. There are only two types of autopilot driving in the world, one for Tesla and the other for other car companies. It can also be seen that, at least in the eyes of many consumers, Tesla’s self-assisted driving, in the technical level and experience, have a good level.
Tesla also recently launched a “fully self-driving” upgrade kit, which costs $8,000 (about 56,000 yuan) in overseas versions, but costs about $64,000 in China.
So this kit is not worth the price, there are media action. It is reported that recently, the well-known U.S. media “Consumer Report”, the Tesla Model 3 “completely autonomous driving” function, carried out a test.
However, the conclusion was a big surprise, and Consumer Reports concluded that Tesla’s fully self-driving car, which it had marked as completely self-driving on its official website and publicity, was completely out of line with the $8,000 Tesla self-driving car bag, which was not worth the price at all.
In the course of the test, Consumer Reports documented Tesla’s “autopilot” failures in four main ways:
Automatic parking: Play unstable, the system occasionally ignores the appropriate parking spaces, and the identification of parking spaces is completely controlled by the program, can not be artificially interfered with.
Vehicle Call: When a vehicle comes out of a parking lot to look for the owner, the vehicle often chooses an overly complex route that takes a long time. In the course of the road, the system can not identify the parking lot internal signs, parking, no-go signs to turn a blind eye, increasing the risk of accidents.
Autopilot navigation: Navigation sometimes automatically doesn’t go offline for no reason, and occasionally misses the exit, and the vehicle is over-laned for a long time after the lane change.
Traffic lights and stop sign recognition: In some cases, the system simply does not recognize the stop sign, forcing the tester to apply the brakes to avoid driving directly over the signal light.
Tests also found that Tesla occasionally braked too far from the stop sign, causing the driver to press the accelerator pedal or shift multiple times to drive the car all the way to the stop sign.
Therefore, combined with the above many poor performance, Consumer Reports gave the Tesla Model 3 “autopilot function”, completely named and not worth the price of the very low evaluation.
In fact, Tesla’s assisted driving capabilities are currently exposed to a number of problems. On the Internet, it is also often available to see car owners exposed to accidents caused by autonomous driving.
Earlier, on a highway in Taiwan, a Tesla Model 3, with auto-assisted driving on, failed to recognize the white van that was lying in the middle of the road and ended up crashing straight up.
Therefore, even such a simple road condition identification, not a good Tesla-assisted driving, how can people believe that “completely autonomous driving” will automatically circumvent the identification, the higher risk factor of road conditions.
What do you think of this? Or, for now, dare you give the safety of yourself and the occupants of your car to Tesla’s “fully autonomous” feature.
