I am a big fan of this forum and for all of the people who have spent their time contributing to the conversation. What a great place to learn from everyone's experiences, expertise and advice before deciding to purchase my model 3.
I just upgraded my SR+ (purchased in March 2019) with basic autopilot. I thought the community might be interested in seeing the video I made showing that. https://youtu.be/apagwdunN3I
I have been incredibly impressed with the videos I have seen of Tesla's autopilot avoiding cones and stopping and swerving away from potential accidents.
However, I tested my autopilot on a stretch of road that had a construction zone with very obvious cones angling cars into the next lane over. Had I not intervened, it is obvious that my car would have run all of them over and likely ran into the big flashing arrow sign that also indicated traffic to move over a lane.
I have looked all over the web, but have not found a good source of information telling me what basic autopilot will do in terms of avoiding potential threats on the road. For instance, will my car attempt to swerve if someone in the next lane over starts to come into my lane, or will autopilot just give me a warning? If cones do appear in my lane, is it supposed to attempt to avoid them or at least give me a warning?
