The GasTrol video focuses on the display of the Tesla Model 3, which was driving autonomously at Tesla's Headquarters in Palo Alto. This video shows a lot of details of what's new and of what the car is capable of. Most of us probably didn't notice all of this while watching Tesla's video:
- New animation of turning
- The view shifts to above the car when coming to a stop
- Interface shifts to night mode at sunset
- It accurately tracks the angle of the lead car
- Lights turn on, then lane change animation
- Sides of the road are now shown
- A blue stripe shows in the lane the car is about to enter
- Speed limit icon changes to a stop sign icon or a stop light icon
- System correctly tracks car moving through intersection
- 2 lane changes one right after the other
- The car slows when unsure about the cars on the side of the road
- Turn is identified even though there are no broken lane markings
- Animation moves smoothly to show the car from above
Tesla intends to perform the first full self-driving cross-country trip later this year. Hopefully, it's really good enough to drive by itself.
