Autopilot Modes: Chillax Mode

Just like the only thing past ludicrous speed is plaid, Autopilot needs a mode that is beyond Chill: Chillax. Instead of driving like Walter when he's totally late for a bowling tournament, autopilot in this mode would drive more like Jeff Lebowski: just like totally chill man.

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 »

Autopilot

Traficsign recognition Implemented

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.

Autopilot

Add the ability to anticipate speed limit changes

When you're driving on Autopilot and the speed limit changes, the car will either:

- 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 »

Autopilot

Cruise Control at Current Speed trending idea

When setting the cruise control, it always locks at "current speed or map indicated, whichever is faster".

There are many places in my area, where it either has inaccurate map date, or it's simple not safe to drive at the indicated speeds.

When activating the cruise control at lower speeds, this means the car starts accelerating, until I can reduce speed on the scroll wheel - every single time.

It would be nice to... more »

Maximum speed in town when not on Autopilot or Cruise Control

It is very common to have very low speed limits around pedestrian areas in the very center of European Cities, often 25 or 30 km/h. In these conditions, with parking cars, bicycles and pedestrians it is not convenient to use the Cruise Control to prevent going over the limit.

The driver can accelerate and brake manually but the car will not accelerate beyond the currently set limit. Like this, the driver can watch the... more »

More Adaptive Speed Limits on City Streets Selected

In Houston (and many other cities), traffic regularly flows at 5 - 10 miles above the posted speed limit. Currently this is not an issue when using AutoPilot on the highway because it allows up to 90 MPH. However on City streets AutoPilot can only be instructed to go 5 MPH over. This is OK for some locations but can be unsafe in others. We need more control over AutoPilot relative speed limits on City streets.

Crowdsourced speed limit errors

From Larry Lessing (at lessig)

Hey at Tesla at elonmusk — why no way to crowdsource speed limit errors? E.g., when the reported limit is wrong, a driver presses the speed limit icon for 2 seconds; a question mark gets added to the icon, and Tesla gets notified of the error. When many report the same, you fix it.

Autopilot

Make sure matrix signs above the road are not detected as lights

When I drive on the highway, the matrix signs above the road (which are used when the speed limit is reduced for example during traffic jams) are detected and displays as traffic lights (see attached photo). Please make sure this is corrected.

Touchscreen

Feedback for incorrect speed limits

It would be nice if I could click on the "posted speed limit" display on my Model 3, when the ACTUAL posted speed is not what the car thinks. You could pass this thru to whatever service you get speed limits from and they could use voting-metrics to verify it needs review.

Safety

Speed limit alert

Currently in the Model 3, the Speed Limit icon on the screen changes to a slightly larger font when the vehicle exceeds the speed limit.

I would like to see that Speed Limit icon change from a white background into AMBER or ORANGE when the speed limit is exceeded. I would think that would not be difficult for Tesla to do.

Thank you. David Nizel, dnizel@yahoo.com, 305-610-8504.

Autopilot

Single tap to reset Cruise control to current speed limit

When cruise control is first engaged, the car sets the speed to the current speed limit or to the current speed whichever is greater. I would like it to reset it to the current conditions if the stalk is tapped again (I dont mean double tap).

eg speed limit 80kph single tap sets the cruise to 80, speed limit changes to 100kph another single tap resets cruise to 100kph.

Safety

Speed mode definable and reduction in front of the board

The speed regulation in Model 3 still leaves something to be desired and should be optimized.

1. In general it is not clear why and when it works and when it does not. Sometimes it works, sometimes not ... The function should be definable (button in the display) so that you can be sure that it always works no matter when the cruise control / autopilot was activated.

2. Signs are not recognized or it only seems to work... more »
