Testing Tesla Model 3 Navigate On Autopilot In Heavy LA Traffic: Video
LA traffic can be a major mess.
How does Tesla’s Navigate on Autopilot negotiate heavy traffic situations like you’d experience in Los Angeles?
Tesla’s Autopilot system added a new feature Navigate on Autopilot (Beta) rather recently. It enables the car to change lanes, as well as enter and exit highways automatically.
The driver first needs to set navigation, engage Autopilot and allow Autopilot to do so, which requires reading a disclaimer. Settings allow for speed-based lane changes (disabled, mild, average, mad max).
So, how well or poorly does it work in LA traffic? Click play on the video to find out.

Quick video showing merging and lane changing in moderately heavy highway traffic with Navigate on Autopilot. Autopilot performs well when there’s about 2 or more car-lengths between vehicles, but can swerve unnaturally when aborting an automatic lane change.
