Maybe test this shit properly next time before you advertise the crap out of it and have it drive on public roads, huh?

howabout just not having it at all - total madness

Musk advertises low-level AI driving tech as "reliable Autopilot" to sell his electric golfcarts.

 

The tech has problems and people occasionally get killed because of it.

 

Any other entrepreneur would have had the shit sued out of him by now for pulling a stunt like this.

Indeed.

 

WEF wants to put a stop to car ownership...

and good old Elon's been working toward that end for some time (though I confess I was ignorant of it till recently)

The next pollution card they can play is the dust from brakes and tyres, so that has electric cars covered.

 

Pollution warning over car tyre and brake dust

By Roger Harrabin
BBC environment analyst
   

  • 11 July 2019

Dust from car brakes and tyres will still pollute city air even when the vehicle fleet has gone all-electric, a report has warned.

Fragments of microplastics from tyres, road surfaces and brakes will also flow into rivers, and ultimately into the sea, government advisers say.

Ministers say they want to pass standards to improve tyres and brakes.

But critics say they need to go further by developing policies to lure people out of private cars.

The government’s Air Quality Expert Group said particles from brake wear, tyre wear and road surface wear directly contribute to well over half of particle pollution from road transport.

The "self-driving" electric car i believe is their ultimate goal.  No one will own their own car.  You'll basically have an app on your smartphone (or your electronic implants by then) that will "hail" a nearby car that isn't currently on another journey, it will pick you up and drop you off at your destination (maybe even picking up other occupants that are going to the same place along the way), then move on to it's next job (unless it needs to go and charge up for a bit)!  This is the future.  The Uber taxi system is the prelude to this, they just need to replace the cars with electric ones and the drivers with AI.

Tesla autopilot and Tesla full self driving are two different things.
Tesla autopilot (which was being used in this crash) is a hands-on driver assistance system that is intended to be used only with a fully attentive driver. It does not turn a Tesla into a self-driving car nor does it make a car autonomous.
The driver is at fault here not the car.

Every Tesla car has the highest safety rating in its class.

Autopilot literally means "self-driving", just as autopilot in planes makes the plane fully autonomous.

 

Elon Musk is fully at fault if he calls what is "limited driver assist" a fucking "autopilot".

 

Elon should stop bragging so much about his achievements and actually give a shit about what he is putting on the streets.

There's no need to swear 👍

Autopilot and full self driving in a Tesla are two different things and everyone who drives one knows that, ones called autopilot and the other FSD. With autopilot you should always be alert and ready to takeover should there be a problem, hands on the wheel at all times and being observant for example. If you break the rules then you only have yourself to blame. This is also true (ATM) of full self driving, as of yet its still only in beta and only available to drivers with a high safety driving score. You can't just get Tesla FSD 10.12.2 by asking or paying for it.

Im sure Elon does care what he puts on the streets as every Tesla car has the highest safety rating in its class. Think about that, Tesla cars have fewer accidents per mile than any other car and when they do the consequences are less severe.

 

BTW autopilot on a plane does not mean it can fly fully anonymously 👍

Can humanity currently lift heavy payloads into space without using a rocket?

An aircraft's autopilot just maintains altitude, heading and speed set by the pilot.  It can never be used to take off, steer and land an aircraft by itself.  The closest thing a road vehicle has to this is cruise control, I don't know much about the Tesla, but i suspect it's autopilot setting is a slightly more sophisticated version of this, it still requires alertness and some input from the driver.

yes

 

there is not enough cobalt and other required resources to replace all the fossil fuel cars

 

This means that either the cabal intend for humanity to somehow use less cars or it means they expect there to be a lot less humans around soon; or a combination of the two. If people lose their jobs and are replaced due to automation then they won't need so many cars. Instead they will be given virtual reality headsets so that they can enter the metaverse.

IMO, from the outset, the overly complicated Tesla cars did not make sense on the basis of saving the planet.  A vehicle should be built with strength, lightness, simplicity, being easily repaired and parts being overhauled for use again, room for possible future improvement upgrades etc.. A vehicle should have a 50 year or so design lifespan and having a half life overhaul, for example.

 

The whole direction of ever increasing technology in society, driven by the PTB does not make sense on eco grounds. There is another agenda goal at work here.

I believe the idea is that as automation and AI increases (to make industry and services more efficient, generating higher taxable profits of companies) there will be less jobs around, this is were Universal Credit comes in.  People will be payed that instead of going out to earn a living.

 

If you think about it with the cars, if no one owns them and they are just part of a system of "being used on demand", there isn't as many cars required, less traffic on the roads (it automatically creates car sharing etc) and it also solves the problem of not having enough charging points.  You would also be able to free up massive areas of land as there would be no need for car parks and driveways, probably less roads required too as the AI would always be taking the most efficient routes.

 

How long does the average private car just sit parked up somewhere?  Probably most of the time.  "Cars on demand" would be constantly in use or charging.

I don't disagree, but bear in mind the alleged plan to restrict our movements anyway, massively.

Sounds like you are on board with it all then?

I'm sure that's how TPTB see it, and what they plan, but that's no fucking life for anyone. I ain't living in a 5G soup in some IoT-linked box, sharing leccy cars with jabbed strangers. Fuck that.
