Develop a new neural net just for potholes dubbed, Deep Pothole (or Deep Hole) purely for detecting potholes in the road. The system would upload pothole location data to the cloud, building a global map of all potholes (aka PotMap). Also autopilot would avoid the pothole automatically. Finally, if you're not using autopilot, a warning would chime if a pothole is coming.
The gap we care about should be one of reaction time, not distance, i.e. the slower we go, the closer we can safely approach the car in front. At 2 mph, we travel ~3 feet per second. The Model 3 is 15 feet long. So... more »

I think a lot of us who don't have FSD are interested in the option, but are worried the benefits might not be worth the price. My idea is to have "Free-FSD Week" where all tesla's on the road would be enabled to try FSD for a week. This could also be coordinated with a release of new FSD features or biannually. Not only would this give experience to drivers, but also may encourage many more people to purchase FSD.
Autopilot tends to drive middle of the road, but humans like to hug either side of the road. Personally I like to hug right side. Adding option to choose this would be great.
Autopilot hug lane setting: left - middle - right
A new mode for Tesla's cars: follow another car. One possible use is when traveling together with a slower friend. Another one is when the other car is showing the way in the city.
I would like auto-pilot to use HOV lanes automatically when more than one seat belt is buckled up.
I would like a feature where the car autopark in my garage, even if I need to use some kind of markings on the floor to help auto-pilot do it. I'd use everyday and it would be way better than the other auto park features that I never use because they are too slow or require parking conditions I never see out there.
The danish speedlimit zones are very different from the zones the autopilot detects. It would be nice if you were able to choose "adapt to actual speed." Or the autopilot adapted to speedlimit shown on the traficsign. It would also be a big help around roadconstruction sites.
- charge into a lower speed zone at high speed before recognizing the new limit and slowing down (unsafe and liable to get you a ticket), or
- keep going slowly into a higher speed zone before recognizing the new limit and speeding up (frustrating for other drivers).
Where speed limit changes are done by geolocation, it should possible... more »
The car should gently let off the accelerator the instant it detects a stopped/slowing car ahead anticipating it having to do a full stop. The gradual slow down instead of a jerky last second stop will make... more »
I would like to have the option to disable TACC and use "dumb" cruise control instead.
I have experienced horrible ghost breakings. Suddenly middle of an empty road the car slammed brakes for 1 second and continued forwards. There was absolutely no reason for this breaking. If a car would have followed me it would have caused a rear-end collision.
Tesla give us the option to go with "dumb" cruise control, please.
In this mode, autopilot would behave like:
-accelerate slowly as possible (ie, don't spill your beverage man)
-speed limit setting is more of... more »
Show some visual indication on the driver side of the screen what the current follow distance is set to.
