Tesla is trying to reverse engineer a series of features to remove buttons and levers from the car. On the other hand, these automations facilitate, or aim to facilitate, the driving experience. The Model 3 and Model Y, for example, are credited with many automatic functions. Despite that, there are some aspects that are still the subject of criticism. For example, windshield wipers! Musk knows this and has already responded to criticism.
Windshield wipers have a "stupid and rather annoying" function.
Tesla was launched automatic windshield wipers for your Autopilot 2 hardware vehicles in early 2018, but the feature was never refined to a bulletproof level. This is one of the reasons why the brand still receives complaints or comments about the uniqueness of automatic windshield wipers. In social networks, such as Twitter, users often express their dissatisfaction.
In one of these complaints, the long-term owner is even a fsd beta tester, @TesLatinowhat has been sent again video of a Tesla owner who called the automatic wiper function "stupid and downright annoying."
The Tesla owner could not be held responsible for such harsh comments, as the video showed the car's automatic wipers working during the day. User @TesLatino then asked Musk if Tesla could at least let owners take off when Autopilot is on.
Tesla uses all 8 cameras for advanced rain detection
Musk responded to the request, and the CEO apologized for the feature's poor performance. He explained that the automatic wipers are one of the last neural networks to be updated and will be supported by the image captured by the car's cameras.
Tesla owners have suggested a number of improvements to automatic windshield wipers to improve performance. In addition to allowing drivers to disable the feature when Autopilot or FSD is engaged, members of subreddit r/TeslaModel3 He also noted that it would be good for the electric car manufacturer to make it an option for the left control wheel on the steering wheel to directly control the wipers.
Based on Elon Musk's recent comments, Tesla owners can expect some improvements on this feature. Incidentally, it's interesting to note that Tesla is using its in-vehicle knowledge network to go beyond traditional rain sensors. With the use of camera images, this performance can be significantly improved, making it less annoying and more accurate.
