I haven’t posted about autonomous vehicles in a while, so I thought I’d come back to the subject as soon as I saw something interesting. Via Coyote, I came across this article on difficulties with Tesla’s autopilot. It essentially confirms what I, and others who probably know a lot more than I do about it, would have suspected: Tesla is not doing the same kind of intensive research and development for its autonomous driving technology as Waymo and others. That doesn’t cause me to lose confidence in my prediction that self-driving vehicles will become prevalent in my lifetime, nor does it diminish my desire to use one myself, although I have to admit that those photos of a wrecked Tesla are kind of disconcerting.
