Taking a simple straight onramp I take home everyday and let it go on NAP. Yesterday was pretty heavy traffic and it held distance from car on the ramp in front of me (set to 4 car lengths). they merged and a large (and clearly, non shakily , display recognized) semitruck sped up so I was dead middle to it. The car started moving over and I let it get within inches (prob a foot, but I was freaked ;)) of the truck before I couldn't take it and jerked it back to the right. IT WOULD HAVE COLLIDED, ridiculously close! It was red on on the display and the trucks positioin was acurate on display. That just seems like such a basic merge , could have sped up earlier (overriding the 4 car distance or slowed down to get behind it. There was plenty of merging width left.
What do you think? I use AP all the time on and off the freeway and of course am ready to take over as I know this is a work in progress. I just did not expect something this basic to screw up. I definetly was too close. I should have pressed my recording to prove it. Anyone else experience something like this? I'm thinking it situated 'dead center' against the truck and couldn't make up its mind about speeding up or slowing down? But to keep moving over. scary
