Hell hath no fury like a radar engineer scorned


Series on YoutTube

Watch the entire series here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aSL7-2-Xjhs&list=PLbN57e2LayhN_3JAboX-afK0WRoCoDZ0E It's pretty good actually! At least viewed by non-pros from far into the future. One of many highlights, a reprimand for drunkenness turns serious once the sailor admits it wasn't only cider he was drinking, but scrumpy cider.

Just switch to Firefox. It doesn't suck now! You can be a tab hygienic swine, and it's still snappy.

Oddly enough, when a Tesla accelerates at a barrier, someone dies: Autopilot report lands


The autopilot probably accelerated because cruise control was set to a higher speed and the car in front made it slow down. When the car moved out of view, it sped up to reach its set speed. And it's not wrong to call it an autopilot. An airliner autopilot will happily fly straight into a mountain if you tell it to. It's just steering automation, not HAL-9000. But I agree that Tesla are jerks for blaming the victim, particularly when it should be extremely easy to detect splitting lanes in the map data.
