Tesla drivers report problems with advanced Level 2 Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) in their electric cars that stop too early at certain intersections. The reason, according to some drivers, is that the stop signs at these intersections are larger than average.
Twitter user @Cowcumber wrote about the issue on August 21, as The Drive first noted. An Internet user noted that his Tesla electric car slowed down before the sign too early.
The driver was not lazy and measured the plate: 123 cm when the size of the other signs in his area is only 76 cm. He suggested that since the sign was about 60 percent larger than standard stop signs, the electronics interpreted it as 60 percent closer, which confused the electric car and caused it to slow down prematurely.
One of the commentators replied that his car always brakes hard at intersections near his house and that “several stop signs are incorrectly marked on it.” According to him, the issue was solved with the latest update.
“The automaker is facing criticism for its proprietary FSD autopilot. The system is being checked by federal regulatory authorities.”
