Full Self-Driving Doesn’t Look at All Ready for Prime Time

We tried Tesla's 'full self-driving.' Here's what happened - CNN

What "full self-driving" could do well was impressive, but the experience was ultimately unnerving. I can't imagine using "full self-driving" regularly in a city. I noticed I was reluctant to ever look down at the Model 3's dashboard, such as for checking our speed, because I didn't want to take my eyes off the road.

I would suspect Tesla’s full self driving feature works better on highways or suburban areas, but this city example was rough. Watch the video in the linked post to see what I’d describe as one of the most tense short films of the year.

It also just so happened to make me better appreciate how much data we humans are able to process and make decisions on in a short period of time.
