Tesla Model 3 Autopilot Versus The Golden Gate Bridge: Video

DEC 27 2018 BY STEVEN LOVEDAY 5

How does Tesla Model 3 Autopilot handle the Golden Gate Bridge? What about that toll booth?

As Tesla continues to improve and update its Autopilot system, we’re getting an influx of new videos. Of course, while most of the videos are meant to show off the technology’s prowess, there are still quirks. This particular video, however, focuses on the Tesla Model 3 using Autopilot to successfully cross the Golden Gate Bridge and navigate the toll both at the end.

For many Tesla owners, footage of the San Francisco areas and its famous bridge may not be very compelling. On the contrary, for those that don’t live in California or get to visit the area often (if ever), it’s pretty fantastic.

We’ll add the usual disclaimer here. We don’t make these videos, nor do we advise exactly how and where people should and shouldn’t use Tesla Autopilot. What we do know is that the automaker still calls it a “beta” system and expects drivers to be aware of its limits. It should never be completely relied upon, and the driver should always remain aware and ready to take control of the vehicle.

With that being said, it’s still pretty fascinating to watch the Model 3 with its updated semi-autonomous technology in use on the Golden Gate Bridge. What do you think about Tesla’s Autopilot updates? Do you feel that the technology has improved drastically? Does it still have a long way to go?

Does it actually recognize the cones in the closed lanes at the toll plaza?

No problem. Tesla can do it. It has more real world miles than any other self driving. Loop

I’ll be impressed if and when a Tesla car will be able to either throw coins into a bin at the toll booth, or hand folding money to a toll booth worker. 😉

It handled it okay by following the traffic in front of it. That isn’t surprising. It was one of the slower car on the bridge and it chose one of the slower lanes.

What is the interesting is that it almost missed the exit to 19th ave… again…

Does bother anyone else that the driver camped in the middle lane, and failed to signal at the end?
