Safety

Passive Blindspot Detection Selected

- When AutoPilot is not activated, and turn signal is activated make a chime or sound play to alert driver to someone existing in blind spot. Similar to the mirror light blind spot functions other cars have. Instead of just a last second avoidance feature or visual on the screen which is not very safe to be looking at whilst driving.
- Could make another kind of "clicking" sound to passively let the driver know someone... more »

Pothole Detection and Avoidance (aka Deep Pothole) Selected

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.

Submit Auto Pilot Feedback To Tesla Eng/AI

Let's have a way when autopilot/car goes wacky you could submit any/all data to the cloud. This would then get reviewed by Tesla Eng/AI and possible fix.

Examples:

1) On highway and the car thinks that the Tractor trailer (next to me) is coming into my lane (when it didn't even come off center) and auto pilot swerves away.

2) There's an intersection where auto pilot steers into the opposite turning lane (wrong way).... more »

Model S/X - improve display of cars BEHIND

Unlike the model 3, it's not possible in the model X to customize with you fingers the way adjacent cars are displayed, as this is done on the touchscreen in model 3, while the cars environment is displayed on the central screen in model X. It would be useful if you could customize in another manner (via settings ?) how the environment is displayed on the model X, to better show cars coming from behind

AP Should Create a "Rescue Alley" When in Traffic Jams

When navigating through a sluggish rolling traffic jam (which the sensors recognize), it would be great if the autopilot would default to "stay the most left or right depending on the lane you are in". To allow the passing of rescue vehicles. We call this a "Rettungsgasse" in German that translates to "evacuation alley". Right now I need to steer manually to stay tucked to the side of the lane which is really annoying... more »

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 »

Emergency Lane mode for Autopilot on traffic jams

In Germany it is legally required to create an emergency lane between the leftmost lane and the one next to it when vehicles are stopped on the highway or move at crawling pace.

Create a mode for Autopilot in its menu, or a virtual button to tap on the screen when encountering a traffic jam, where if it detects it is driving on the leftmost lane, it will follow the car ahead like usual, but before stopping, it will try... more »

Safety

Caution Front Brake Lights

Caution front brake lights work just like the rear brake lights do but they only when your turn signals are on. This lets oncoming traffic see when your going to turn left or right in front of them. This also lets pedestrians know when it is safe to cross the crosswalk letting them know when your going to make your turn. This is my patented idea that I have on my truck and people will step back onto the curb when they... more »

Seatbelt / Airbag PSI / Data Collection

When I was a kid, I was involved in a really bad car crash that almost cost me my life because I wasn't wearing a seatlbelt, and the airbag impact gave me anxiety for the rest of my life.

I eventually patented a seatbelt design that used sensors in seat to take weight of the passenger, the belts themselves measured the circumference of the passenger to estimate airbag engagement. Using the data collected from the seat... more »
