Putting Tesla’s Autopilot to the ultimate test in my Model Y: Bad Los Angeles Drivers! LA drivers are notoriously bad. They drive fast, get distracted easily, and are always trying to get everywhere faster than everyone else. Tesla’s Autopilot is cautious, and sometimes feels like a student driver, so how does it stack up?

I recently got the Full Self Driving or FSD update for my Tesla Model Y and Tesla Autopilot. Today, I’m putting it to the test. I drove across Los Angeles going from East LA to West LA with the purpose of putting Navigate on Autopilot to the test.
Tesla advertises Navigate on Autopilot as having the ability to drive you from freeway onramp to offramp all on its own. It has its quirks, but overall this feature does a great job with Auto Lane Changing doing especially well.
In this video I walk you through some of the good edge cases and the bad edge cases that I experience in my drives with Tesla Autopilot in LA.
You’ll see times when the Model Y does Phantom Braking. Times when the Model Y takes merges incredibly slow and angers drivers behind and around me. Also, there are a couple really close calls where Autopilot nearly gets in an accident, and I take over entirely. I’m glad it wasn’t an accident in one of those “Autopilot Accident” videos, and overall I’m glad that in general, Autopilot seems to do incredibly well.
Tesla’s Full Self Driving package includes:
Auto Lane Change
Navigate on Autopilot
Recognize and Respond to Traffic Lights and Stop Signs
And soon: Autosteer on City Streets.

Hi Ryan, how many other cameras are you using to capture all these great shots, & what make are they? Also do you use any specific editing software for loading these road trip videos

Am I weird for personifying autopilot??? Like for some reason I envision actual panic when the car beeps frantically
katze_sonne 23 soat oldin
3:28 yes, it stays more on the left here. But that hasn't got to do anything with the car on the left. Autopilot simply always / most of the time goes a little bit further left in its lane when overtaking semi trucks. PS: I don't want to see the parts of the video where you just film yourself talking. The content of that part is completely unnecessary and you could have voiced-over it on the rest of the video. 7:45 no, it wasn't Autopilot cutting the Prius off, it was you telling it to do so. Use "no confirmation lane changes" with AP and normally it would wait until it's clear, if possible.

I am old school, do not trust computers that much. I would rather do the driving for the long run, I may trust it for a short run. I have also found that there is a fuel savings for doing 5 miles under the speed limit, it could have even helped you also.

I love how the car is making choices for you. But yet we still find things to complain about. The rule is if you are 1 car length you are safe to pass or get in the lane. My question is why do we need autopilot???? Like wtf? If you don’t want to drive don’t buy a car

9:58 the reason autopilot slow down is because even you set the speed but it(Tesla) reads map(GPS) showing speed limit and curve you are about to pass. So the car will slow down by all means.

Hi, NYC driver here. Those incidents where you say the Tesla did not do a good job of switching lanes or when the Mercedes is "driving terribly" is not true. The Mercedes was driving fast, yes, but was not at all disregarding the rules of the road nor was it close too to other vehicles. It wasn't cutting anyone off. Plus, the Tesla did a fine job at driving and changing lanes, aside from the phantom braking. I wonder how the Tesla would perform over here. We have plenty of agressive drivers.

Autopilot looks inefficient and annoying to almost dangerous - I would not trust it much and definitely not use it in town. Might be nice in light traffic but a pain in the butt for me and other drivers in heavy traffic.

I know what you mean; I drove a Prius for a while and I drove completely different than I did a regular car. What I noticed in your driving is that you had to be vigilant and you did a lot? of tweaks and "encouragements" so I felt that you might as well have been driving the car yourself and the other drivers would have appreciated that too.

Seeing this, yes the auto pilot is not perfect but I would still trust it more than some people who cannot even drive. I think it is better to slow down than to speed up but it was sometimes a little too slow;

For the second phantom breaking example its because the truck was hugging the line between his and your car, the car picked it up and decided to slow down as a precaution if the guy was being stupid and change lanes.

Tesla needs to put an update where 2 Tesla cars can communicate with each other so self driving can be better, if one is in auto pilot and the other isn’t the one that is not can receive a notification that says hey this one is in autopilot so be careful, and the one on autopilot can see what the other person/ car on autopilot is going to do so there are way less crashes.

Honestly this is not impressive at all, the car is driving like shit. slowing down for no reason, takes most turns out to the far edge of the lane, doesn't look smooth, crowds a few ppl in next lane. I saw one good merge with acceleration that any human should be able easily to do. No wonder telsas are annoying as hell to drive around on the freeway. Not to mention they are always driving 70 in the carpool lane, even outside of carpool hours here in the bay.

That's why one shouldn't use neural networks for self driving vehicles. Sure neural networks can do some amazing things by being trained for complex scenario and nailing them better than a hard coded software could do, but they also have some inherently bad behavior that aren't bugs, but just the nature of neural networks, sometime they just encounter situation where they are incredibly unpredictable... When it is for figuring out what scene or object it is looking at to make the best picture editing mode, those aren't much important, but when it is about controlling a multiple tons vehicle that contain living creatures (humains here) and is surrounded by any others, well, neural networks are certainly NOT the way to do it, at least not the 100% neural network approach. There is only so much that a neural network can do, it doesn't work purely like a brain, and the differences it have make it unable to reach higher cognitive functions, yet everyone try to use neural networks as/like a brain...

Good video! I appreciate Teslas efforts but for me this is still dangerous beta testing by customers. Until the car can not drive 100% safe without phantom breaking and all that student driver stuff it should not be on the road. "Most of the time" is not enough when it comes to deadly risks. I once had a rental Model S and nearly had an accident because the car suddenly hit the brakes before a bridge while I was doing like 150 km/h. There was no car around me so the car behind me nearly crashed into me because of me suddenly braking. As you said, all other companies including Google, ArgoAI and MobilEye go for a combination of cameras and lidar and they do not let their stuff drive on public roads until it is working safe. In my opinion NTSB should stop this beta testing by Tesla.

I don't think you're supposed to be swerving into the lane next to you, I know that's the main thing everyone including me can do at times, but isn't that bad driving? To brake, you brake, to swerve you have to check your mirrors. Even if you brake hard the driver behind should have distance and will notice.
