Default VIDEO: Watch CNN Reporter Test Tesla's Full Self-Driving Mode And Almost Meet Their O

Quote:

Tesla has given some drivers access to its “full self-driving” beta software. CNN went to one of the busiest streets in Brooklyn to see how it works.

CNN Transportation Editor Michael Ballaban decided to test Tesla’s “full self-driving” (FSD) tech in Brooklyn, New York. The result is a terrifying video where Ballaban desperately intervenes to prevent calamity as the Tesla nearly careens into oncoming traffic, trucks, and pedestrians.
Seriously. See for yourself just how “Beta” FSD really is:

Default Buick previews a self-driving pod tailored for the Chinese market

Buick previews a self-driving pod tailored for the Chinese marke

Every now and then you get a car company imagining what it's products might be like in a future where driving, at least by a human, is no longer necessary.
The latest is Buick which on Friday at Auto Guangzhou 2021 unveiled the Smart Pod concept.

The concept is a self-driving minivan based on General Motors' Ultium dedicated electric-vehicle platform, and Buick envisions it being used not only for transport but also as a private space to relax, entertain friends, or catch up on work.
There are no controls for the driver. Instead, the front of the cabin features a seat that can be folded down to form a table. Behind this is a 50-inch screen that can also tuck down when not in use. At the rear of the cabin is a pair of individual reclining seats, plus a section to hold a tea set. We're told the concept also features an AI-enabled virtual assistant.

A cool element of the design are the exterior lights. These feature micro-LEDs that are used to make emotive patterns. The concept's glass lattice roof also makes the interior an exciting place to be.

Unlike some of the other self-driving pod concepts we've seen over the years, something like the Buick Smart Pod may actually reach production in the not too distant future. GM's self-driving technology startup Cruise is developing its own self-driving pod based on the Ultium platform. Known as the Cruise Origin, it's due to go into limited service here in the U.S. in the coming years. It's not hard to imagine a Buick pod controlled by Cruise's self-driving system being developed for China, Buick's biggest market.

In addition to the Smart Pod, Buick also used the Guangzhou auto show for the debut of a concept previewing the design of the next-generation version of the Chinese-market GL8 minivan.

Default Tesla Owners Locked Out Of Their Cars After App Outage And Ford’s Mike Levine Trolls

Quote:

Tesla Owners Locked Out Of Their Cars After App Outage And Ford's Mike Levine Trolls Them

The tech found in Tesla’s vehicles is among the most advanced in the industry, but sometimes it’s a bit too complicated for its own good. Case in point, the ability to unlock the car with your phone, which, when it crashed, left some Tesla owners stranded outside their vehicles.

The cars’ primary method of being locked and unlocked is with a keycard (or key fob), but owners also have the option to perform those functions via the Tesla app and a Bluetooth connection. However, if you were to only bring your phone with you when the app crashed, you wouldn’t be able to get into your car – and that’s exactly what happened this past Friday to around 500 Tesla owners.

One Twitter user wrote: “I’m experiencing 500 server error to connect my @tesla Model 3 on my iOS app in Seoul, S.Korea. Seems like this is a worldwide issue. @elonmusk.” In response, Musk said: “Should be coming back online now. Looks like we may have accidentally increased verbosity of network traffic. Apologies, we will take measures to ensure this doesn’t happen again.”

The incident was first reported by Electrek, who subsequently provided updates as the story developed. And according to Reuters, Downdetector reported the main 500-user outage to be at around 4:40 PM EST, with another outage report of 60 users at around 9:20 PM that same night. Since then, the issue has been resolved, but hopefully it will serve as a lesson to not rely only on a smartphone – just in case.

The fix didn’t stop Ford’s North America Product Communications Manager and active Tesla critic on Twitter from taking another shot at the Californian EV Bran
