Tesla cars have learned to detect devices that allow you not to keep your hands on the steering wheel when using autopilot

Tesla cars have learned to detect devices that allow you

The Teslascope team, who understands Tesla software updates, found something interesting in the latest FSD beta update. Tesla vehicles can now detect devices designed to simulate hands on the steering wheel while the autopilot function is in operation. If such devices are detected, the system will disable the autopilot.

In order to use the beta Autopilot and Full Self-Driving (FSD) features, Tesla requires drivers to keep their hands on the wheel. That being said, the automaker regularly asks drivers to apply some torque to the wheel in order to continue using autopilot.

This prompted some people to use some tricks. Someone just put a water bottle under the steering wheel rim, and some companies even tried to mass-produce special steering wheel pads that fool the Tesla computer.

Because the technology is still in beta and undeniably dangerous if drivers aren’t in control, Tesla is trying to get drivers to take the wheel regularly to be ready to take over.

Tesla is also increasingly using a cab-facing camera for driver attention monitoring, which can detect when drivers are not looking at the road.

According to William Lee, the company does not intend to compete with traditional smartphone manufacturers, instead Nio will try to make a device with a unique design. Naturally, it will be integrated into the ecosystem – with its help it will be possible to drive the company’s cars. The new model will be released annually.

William Lee stated that one of the reasons for the release of his phone was that the iPhone is limited in millimeter wave (mmWave) support, but this technology is used in Nio cars. It is expected that the cost of “mobile Nio” will not exceed $ 1,000.

In early October, it was reported that the company was finally manufacturing its Semi electric truck and plans to start shipping it to Pepsi as early as December 1, 2022. The soft drink company ordered 100 electric vehicles in December 2017, just a month after Tesla first introduced the world to its new brainchild.

Tesla promises that the Semi can accelerate from 0 to 96 km/h mph in 20 seconds even when “fully loaded” and maintain “the same speed as on the highway, even on steep climbs.” Elon Musk also promises that you can charge your battery up to 70% in just 30 minutes.

Tesla Semi was first introduced in 2017, and the release of the serial version was postponed several times. Tesla offered a slight update to the production version last summer, but the automaker is expected to release more details, including pricing and specification details.

Tesla has already confirmed that it is going to hold an event dedicated to deliveries of the first Tesla Semi on December 1st.
