The last four seconds of this vid show an egregious and utterly terrifying error for a system that calls itself “Full Self-Driving” https://t.co/B5wJV3dMrU— Faiz Siddiqui (@faizsays) March 17, 2021
Here's the entire video.
Road and Track has a painful play-by-play.
But E.W. Niedermeyer explains how a pretty good autonomous driving system would actually be more dangerous.
The fact that "Full Self-Driving" is so laughably bad is actually the main reason we haven't had crashes yet. If it improves to the point where it only makes a potentially fatal screwup every 100 miles or more, that's when people will become inattentive and over-trusting. https://t.co/dxh43iI0jX— E.W.

Which brings us to the main point from the panel linked above with @missy_cummings, @MikeANees and @mclamann: waiting for mediocre automation to screw up every 10, 50, 100 or 1,000 miles and then making a split-second life-and-death decision is something humans are really bad at!— E.W.
