It’s clear from this video that the Tesla doesn’t detect the boat at all, and doesn’t understand the turn signal.
It encroaches dangerously from far behind, a predictably dumb move as if asleep at the wheel.
Perhaps the most important detail here is the Tesla doesn’t hit the brakes until it crashes into a car clearly in front of it and then the boat.
Watching this video I hope very much that your own instinct to hit the brakes kicked in a long time before this Tesla’s brake lights turn on. The obvious failure to slow indicates to me yet another vehicular assault by the Tesla. Arrest the driver for driving under the influence.
Radar? What radar?
Tesla cut costs by downgrading to the least costly and least capable sensor technology, as demanded by the CEO over engineering safety objections.
Former Tesla employees say the decision to remove radar immediately caused problems. Complaints filed with regulators reveal that vehicles were allegedly “stopping for imaginary hazards, misinterpreting street signs, and failing to detect obstacles” including emergency vehicles.
Add boats to the list.
