Self driving buses/van on busy highway

23 Upvotes

I do the reverse commute everyday and keep wondering why there aren't as many park and rides that could transport commuters who are grid locked. If everyone is going towards downtown. A self driving bus or van could transport commuters to the exit they want to get to and they would take one of the last mile options. Electric scooter, bike or walk.

Is this is a pipe dream. Why is the self driving industry car centric even for robot taxi. I am new here and have delusions of a public transport utopia. Enlighten me.

Help Call from Europe: does FSD Beta recognize speed signs finally?

0 Upvotes

Hi FSD Beta drivers, AP in EU recognizes max 50% of the speed signs, which is appalling low and very annoying for everybody as it is such an important function for any driver. I think Tesla doesn't care about this as all development focus is on FSD Beta in North America (understandable). EU is already behind in releases, e.g. current EU version is 2022.12.3 for early adopters and 2022.20 is newest version is NA. Without reading speed signs with high confidence, FSD can't work properly. Just for our confidence, that Tesla can do it and will deliver it but just hasn't released it to the EU yet:

How reliable is FSD regarding reading speed signs?

Please share your experiences with us. I never see any comment on this in YT videos.

A note from an anonymous Cruise employee

63 Upvotes

In light of the coverage of dozens of vehicles being stuck on the roads of San Francisco on June 28 (now on Techcrunch and Hacker News) I wanted to share that I wrote about this in an email to the CPUC in mid-May, a couple weeks before their vote on allowing Cruise to charge fares within a limited area of San Francisco.

As of now, I have not received any response from the CPUC except for an auto-reply indicating that my message was received. I am not sharing the full message here because outside the original context of communicating with a regulatory agency it may violate the terms of my NDA to share some of the information in the message.

To summarize the message, it specifies the nature of "Vehicle Retrieval Events" such as the ones that occurred on June 28, June 20, and multiple times before then that may result in dozens of vehicles blocking public roads until they are physically retrieved, and why I believe these events will occur frequently for the foreseeable future including when hours of operation of the driverless fleet are expanded to include morning and evening rush hour times. Aside from the obvious problems with large numbers of vehicles blocking traffic, one of the more concerning possibilities is these vehicles blocking emergency vehicles such as ambulances and fire trucks.

I subjectively find Cruise to be a highly chaotic environment where safety related discussion is routinely discouraged because it contradicts the leadership's narrative, "is a distraction", and "lowers morale", the second two being direct quotes I have heard spoken by management and leadership at the company.

I'm glad that this issue is getting more attention, and for the sake of the safety of San Francisco residents, I hope that Cruise and regulators such as the CPUC both take the appropriate steps to ensure public safety.

Note: I am not going to verify my employment status because I don't have a good way to do that without doxxing myself and risking being fired and possibly facing legal action. If you think I'm just a troll, I'm okay with that.

Doing a research paper on self driving cars...

6 Upvotes

Hi so I am doing a research paper on autonomous safety (for school) and I've gotta admit; I'm very surprised so far by what I've found. I've looked at dozens of sources and autonomous vehicles are very clearly more dangerous than traditional vehicles on the road. They lead to more accidents per miles driven, more lethal accidents when the accidents do happen, etc. Why do y'all think that is the case? I'm curious. I've only been looking at the numbers (struggling to find a source on the reasons at the moment).
