My M3 thinks pumpkins are cones

My M3 thinks pumpkins are cones


Backing of my garage this evening and approaching a leftover set of pumpkins, my m3 depicted them as orange cones in the car surrounding display.

Very interesting. In a way, they were indeed acting as cones in my driveway. I wonder if their image processing is using some sort of neural net.

I have a 2019 M3 (October delivery) with firmware 2019.36.2.4 (just installed yesterday).

Another case of mistaken identity :)

It's really fun to see the system's image recognition evolve.

Drove by Gillian Anderson, car rendered her as a cone.

At least they got the color right.

The trouble I've seen is that the cones around here (everywhere?) have a stripe or two of reflective tape around them. No such stripe shows in the screen rendering.
Also, it depicts cones lying sideways on the road as standing up normally, but even when I check the rearview after driving by, the cone will still be lying down. Hideous misrepresentation.
And to top it off, I have a horrible bruise in my back. Turns out there was a pea under one of my mattresses. It just never ends.

Third Tesla Hardware problems.... Those of us on hardware 2.5 do not have these issues ;-)

That’s right, I just drive right over those stupid cones.
