Consumer Reports blasts Teslas automatic lane changing as less competent than humans

first_img 12 Tesla Tags Share your voice More about 2018 Tesla Model 3 Performance 50 Photos More From Roadshow Tesla Model 3 barrels through the snow in Track Mode Enlarge ImageIt’s a weird situation to be in, expecting a driver to be as vigilant as they would when in full command of the vehicle, despite the system’s whole intent being to reduce the tedium of driving by taking on some of the work. Tesla Tesla’s Navigate on Autopilot system adds even more functionality to the automaker’s lane-holding system, including automatic lane changes and navigating on- and off-ramps. While it worked fine for us on a very brief drive shortly after release, Consumer Reports put it under the microscope and, well, the outlet didn’t exactly like what it found.Consumer Reports did not have kind things to say about Navigate on Autopilot and its optional automatic lane-changing after a thorough test of its capabilities. “The system’s role should be to help the driver, but the way this technology is deployed, it’s the other way around,” said Jake Fisher, senior director of auto testing at CR, as part of its report. “It’s incredibly nearsighted. It doesn’t appear to react to brake lights or turn signals, it can’t anticipate what other drivers will do, and as a result, you constantly have to be one step ahead of it.”Earlier in May, Consumer Reports’ own Model 3 (that it purchased for testing purposes) received the software update that enabled Navigate on Autopilot. After taking several highway trips in its home state of Connecticut, CR found issue with the automatic lane-changing system in particular, saying the car was taking a few too many risks and changing lanes too closely to other cars. It also made passes on the right, which is illegal in certain states. In addition, Fisher and his team found that the system was “reluctant to merge in heavy traffic,” and when it did, it would occasionally apply the brakes immediately after merging to put some space between it and the car ahead, which can be surprising to drivers behind the Tesla. “[Automatic lane changing] isn’t a convenience at all,” Fisher said. “Monitoring the system is much harder than just changing lanes yourself.” It’s worth noting that the system is optional, so people who don’t like it can turn it off and make lane changes like normal.Tesla did not immediately return a request for comment, but it did provide some statements to Consumer Reports. The statements mostly revolved around how its data shows that people are enjoying the system and then, when used “properly,” Navigate on Autopilot can “offer comparable levels of safety” both with and without automatic lane changes enabled. The automaker also stressed that all final decisions are still in the drivers’ hands, leaving them as the final bastions of responsibility when the system is active.Originally published May 22.

AL seeks to make allies parliamentary opposition

first_imgObaidul Quader. File PhotoAwami League general secretary Obaidul Quader says it will be a positive development for the government and ruling Awami League’s 14-party allies if the partners play the role as a parliamentary opposition.The policy statement came from the AL leader on Thursday in the wake of main opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party’s decision not to join parliament at all after it alleged massive rigging in 30 December elections won by the AL.”Many of the Awami League allies have already decided to stay in the opposition bench in parliament. It’s good for us as well as for them,” said Quader told newsmen after inspecting preparations for the AL’s victory rally to be held at Suhrawardi Udyan on Saturday.After the one-sided election of 2014, the AL’s ally Jatiya Party of HM Ershad that had representation in the cabinet, was made official opposition party in parliament.However, this time around, the AL’s ally Workers Party’s president Rashed Khan Menon said there will be no unity with the AL if they go to the opposition.Menon and Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal president Hasanul Haq Inu, who had been in the previous cabinet, were ignored when prime minister Sheikh Hasina formed the government for the third consecutive time.About Menon’s statement, Quader said, “We’ve been discussing about the matter [of seeing the partners as opposition].”Quader, also road transport and bridges minister, said the government can learn from criticism from the opposition. “If there is an opposition, the government will be able to rectify itself,” he added.The AL leader, according to UNB, claimed that there is neither any conflict nor tension in the AL-led grand alliance.”The grand alliance is a unity forged to participate in elections while the 14-party is a political alliance which will prevail and there’s no chance of collapse,” said the minister.”There is no infighting, tension and disturbance in the alliance, said the senior AL leader adding, “If there’s any misunderstanding, we’ll solve it through discussions.”last_img read more
