Third episode of a new series highlighting interesting moments captured by Tesla FSD Beta testers. In this installment, we look at the V10 software update which was hyped by Elon Musk as “mind-blowing”. And while it’s true it improved in some areas and fixed several long standing issues, it’s also been making pretty dangerous mistakes.
Second episode of a new series highlighting interesting moments captured by Tesla FSD Beta testers. In this installment, we show several clips involving cyclists and pedestrians in the road. Autopilot usually has no problem going around them but sometimes the scenario can be pretty complex. Check out the video to see how the software handles these interesting situations.
First episode of a new series highlighting interesting moments captured by Tesla FSD Beta testers. In this installment, I show several examples of big mistakes that FSD Beta in the form of running red lights and stop signs. The video also talks about how Autopilot handles obscured signs and traffic lights or what happens when it encounters a stop sign that isn’t mapped.
FSD Beta software is a version of Tesla Autopilot designed to eventually be capable of driving autonomously in virtually any situation. It’s definitely not there yet, but it has improved a lot since its initial release. I made a video that compares clips from two drives on the exact same route, but taken 9 months apart. The difference is stark.
In another installment of our SpaceX Stories series, we bring you a 2017 interview with former SpaceX employee Daniel Frolich. He was actually the very first intern the company hired back when SpaceX had just 15 employees and was located in El Segundo. The interview contains some interesting stories from the early days of SpaceX and also from Dragon development.
Tom Mueller has been designing rocket engines at SpaceX since the company was founded in 2002. He helped develop the Kestrel, Merlin, Raptor and more. But how did these engines got their names? Luckily, Mueller was kind enough to share the story.
A new series of articles explores the rich history of SpaceX through interesting, informative and fun stories, as told by SpaceX and NASA employees and others. In this video, former SpaceX employee Brian Mosdell will tell you about the construction of launch pad SLC-40 in 2008. The most interesting aspect of the story is how SpaceX had to be very scrappy and resourceful, reusing old hardware to keep the costs down.
