Tesla autopilot went crazy because of a truck with traffic lights

Published

on

The owner of a Tesla Model 3 ran into an unusual error while using the autopilot system, which began to detect an infinite number of traffic lights.

The video demonstrates that the Tesla Model 3 was driving behind a truck that was carrying idle traffic lights. It ended up looking like a pretty funny system crash, but it confirmed how difficult it is to prepare autonomous driving systems for the incredible number of incidents they might encounter in the real world.

Tesla’s failure to understand that the traffic lights were being transported to cars and not working is a clear sign that Tesla is not fully autonomous, no matter how many times CEO Elon Musk has said so.

My guess is that this scenario was probably not part of the system’s training data. A good illustration of the fact that it will not be possible to achieve complete autonomy by simply writing more data.
