That is now possible. A man from the USA recently had a chip implanted to open his Tesla, as reported the online portal "Futurezone" on Monday . The implantation two weeks ago was part of a beta program of the implant chip company Vivokey, in the course of which around 100 people would have been used at an NFC chip at a cost of $ 400 (approximately 403 euros), according to "Futurezone".

The Tesla autopilot has found its master in one of the most unlikely companions: as a viral internet video shows, Tesla's chain assistant system is A horse-drawn carriage in front confused so much that it interprets the two-horsepower team as everything-just not as a horse-drawn carriage.

in the assistance systems of

Tesla there seem to be some problems that sometimes even lead to almost strange situations. A short video has now appeared on the online platform 9GAG that has caused some amusement on the network. In the clip, the driver of a Tesla vehicle films the visualization of the central display as he drives behind a horse-drawn carriage. Basically not a particularly exciting situation, but the comedy of the scene arises from the fact that the vehicle's software has the greatest difficulties with becoming smart from the ahead. According to the trading newspaper, the video on Tikkok has already been viewed over 5.8 million times.

As the magazine Efahrer explains, the display of a Tesla car provides the driver about the recognized lanes and road users, which is the basis for the actions of the autopilot software. Among other things, this autopilot is responsible for warning the driver of slowly driving or standing vehicles. But this apparently does not work in certain situations as desired: In this case, the system did not want to be able to correctly identify the vehicle in front.

The software recognizes everything - just no horse carriage

The attempt by the assistance system to recognize the carriage as what it is, resulted in a amusing series of failures. It begins that the Tesla computer tells the driver that the ancient team is a truck. But then it happens: a car overtakes the carriage and the system suddenly decides to turn the team a car before it turns it back into a truck a little later.

Plenty of roadblocks for automakers seeking EV success

  Plenty of roadblocks for automakers seeking EV success The world's top automakers -- motivated either by governmental regulations or pure profit -- have made a sharp turn away from fossil fuel vehicles. - Help, but with conditions - Local regulations could make things more complicated for automakers. In the United States, new legislation championed by the administration of President Joe Biden allots up to $7,500 in tax credits to every American who buys an electric vehicle.But there are conditions: for example, final assembly of those cars must take place within US borders.

But the spectacle really starts. The Tesla autopilot now begins to rotate the virtual image of the carriage truck on its own: First it shows the vehicle as a standing on the street, the next moment the autopilot believes that it would even be a ghost driver opposite. In this case, the autopilot's own action was deactivated, but it would have been switched on, the Tesla would have braked independently in view of the imagined threat. It goes without saying that this represents an enormous security risk. Finally, the autopilot then excludes the barrel: it changes back and forth between trucks and cars, but this time it also dives on the display ominous Behind the non -identifiable vehicle of r) pedestrians. Where it should have come at once, the secret of the Tesla software remains.

The safety of the system leaves significantly to be desired

Although the video is a direct hit from a comedic point of view, it also clearly shows the weaknesses of the software of Tesla vehicles. Situations such as the skills described here lead to so -called phantom brakes, i.e. brake processes triggered by the assistance systems, for which there is no real occasion and which can represent a dangerous intervention in road traffic.

and the shortcomings of the Tesla systems are generally nothing new: According to Efahrer, a judgment of the Munich I, which also dealt with Tesla's autopilot, came to light that the assistance system in the detection of obstacles, such as Lane narrowing, has big problems. As the trade newspaper reports, the system sometimes even sees ghosts: in one case, people were suddenly displayed in an empty cemetery. So it is obvious that Tesla still has a lot to do when improving his assistance systems. Thomas Weschle / Redaktion
