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 »

Safety

SOS Button for Emergencies

In case of an emergency, have an SOS style button that would call emergency services (aka like 911 in the US). Similar to how it works on iOS and Android, give an option to share location, medical information, etc. Also it would enable a speakerphone to communicate if you are stuck and can't reach your phone. If the car detected a crash, it would automatically enable the SOS dialog and give the drive an option to dismiss... more »

De-Fishing of Rear Camera While Driving

An optional button to enable dynamic "de-fishing" to present a display similar to a normal rear view mirror in terms of field of view. It's pretty simple to do and it would solve the issue of the image cutting off too much of the bottom of the view.

Safety

Passive Blindspot Detection

- 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 »

Emergency Charger Eject / Disconnect

On screen charge port unlock button which:
1) Automatically unlocks charge port to leave a situation while charging without exiting the vehicle in an emergency.
2) Automatically save cams clip
3) Can dispatch 911 to your location if you choose you need the help.
This may damage charger of charge port, but there may be a time when you may need to leave an area/situation where your safety is more important.
Tesla can also... more »

Safety

Rear Camera frequency change

With most cars having LED headlights it seems we are being pulled over by the police.

It would be great if the screen refresh was quicker (or slower) than most LED's to avoid the panic situation of thinking there is an emergency vehicle behind you while displaying the rear camera onscreen.
