Tesla’s Autopilot mistakes the Moon for a traffic light | Digital Trends Spanish

The owner of a Tesla noted that the vehicle’s autopilot mistook the Moon for the yellow light of a traffic light. The user posted a video on Twitter where the failure during assisted driving is clearly seen.

“Hey, Elon Musk, you might want your team to deal with how the Moon tricks the autopilot system,” Jordan Nelson wrote on Twitter. “The vehicle believes that the Moon is a yellow traffic light and wanted to continue slowing down,” he added.

Hey @elonmusk you might want to have your team look into the moon tricking the autopilot system. The car thinks the moon is a yellow traffic light and wanted to keep slowing down. 🤦🏼 @Teslarati @teslaownersSV @TeslaJoy

The problem is that, according to the registry, Tesla’s Autopilot assisted driving technology interprets the Earth’s natural satellite as one yellow traffic light after another, in a kind of endless line that motivates you to slow down.

As a result of this unique case, Elon Musk’s company recalls that “the autopilot and full self-driving capacity are intended to be used by a fully attentive driver, who has his hands on the wheel and is ready to take control in any moment”.

This error, although it seems exceptional, is added to other similar ones. For example, it recalls the case of the vehicle that stopped unexpectedly when it detected a Stop disc on a billboard, or the other Tesla that also slowed down when it was behind a truck carrying traffic lights.

Both cases were reported by the owners of the vehicles.

Of course, the company headed by the tycoon will have to correct this error in its next versions.
