You can allow Tesla autopilot to violate traffic rules: this is in the settings
Tesla's latest driving assisted driving software allows car owners to decide how aggressively they want their vehicle to drive in traffic - to the point of breaking the rules. Axios.
What's going on
The latest release of Tesla's "Full Self-Driving" (FSD) beta software allows owners to choose from three driving profiles - "Cool", "Medium" or "Assertive". They determine how the car will behave in different scenarios.
Сonclusion: Pushy Teslas are programmed to allow stop-and-go stops, follow other cars more closely, and change lanes more often—behavior that tends to be more dangerous no matter who is driving.
The car "will not leave the fast lane" - it will simply start moving in the left lane, although this is prohibited on most highways.
Critics say this is yet another example of Tesla's "irresponsible" approach to automated driving.
In December, the manufacturer agreed to change the software of its vehicles to prevent drivers from playing video games on the dashboard screen while driving, after a New York Times report triggered a federal safety investigation.
Tesla did not respond to a request for comment.
All self-driving technology companies are scrambling to figure out how to make their cars blend into local traffic patterns without being overly cautious or aggressive.
Argo AI, for example, aims to improve so-called natural driving - a combination of safe, defensive and "socially acceptable driving".
Tesla's range of driver profiles seem to offer a choice of what is socially acceptable.
Bottom line: Despite its name, Tesla's FSD system is not completely autonomous, and Tesla cannot control itself. Drivers need to keep their hands on the wheel and keep their eyes on the road, whether they feel composure or assertiveness.
New reality check on self-driving cars
Some automakers and tech companies say they're preparing to bring self-driving cars to consumers in just a few years, a "fresh" promise that makes it feel like 2016 is back. But beware of the hype.
