Actually, this anecdote is from North Carolina, USA, where a Tesla car owner was driving his car on the highway when suddenly the moon shining in the sky was mistook by the car’s autopilot as a yellow light of the traffic light and the car driver was asked to speed up the car. Started issuing reduction alerts. The driver made a video of the incident and shared it on his Twitter account. This Tesla owner named Jordan Nelson also tagged Tesla owner Elon Musk in his tweet.
He told Elon Musk in his tweet that his team should test this autopilot system, which considers the moon to be a traffic light. He further explained that his car was mistaking Chand as a yellow traffic light and the system was keeping the car slow.
Nelson to ViralHog Told That he had bought a subscription to Tesla’s full self-driving feature. Let us tell you that Tesla recently announced that Tesla owners can also subscribe for a price of $99 or $199 per month instead of paying $10,000 all at once to adopt the full self-driving feature when buying a vehicle. .
Describing the incident, he said (translated) “I went to the local 4-lane highway to try it out and noticed that the car was a bit hesitant, as if it wanted to slow down, while there it was normally driven at my prescribed speed. But had to stay, because there was no one in front of the car.” He further explained that when he looked up, he found that the moon was right in front of him and because the color of the moon appeared yellow amid the smoke of forest fires on the West Coast, it was deceiving the car’s autopilot.
