Will Tesla Beat the Audi A8 to True Level 3 Autonomy?

Will Tesla Beat the Audi A8 to True Level 3 Autonomy?

Which car maker will really make the first Level 3 autonomous production vehicle? My money is on Tesla.

Recent news reports suggest the 2018 Audi A8 will be the first Level 3 autonomous production vehicle this fall. Read deeper, and you will see Audi's Level 3 autonomy only works "when the car is driving 37 mph or under" AND "on a highway with a physical divider." To me, that isn't real Level 3 autonomy.

When will we see true Level 3 autonomy?

Let's see- Silicon Valley vs. Germany. Yeah, definitely Tesla.

Audi is definitely misleading. Tesla could claim level 4 with summon.

There's no rule on that. It's just an honor system. Audi would cheat even when there is an emission rule.

Yes, Tesla will beat them. Close, but it will happen. Book it. :)

Have you seen any reliable predictions on when Tesla will get to Level 3?

Will Audi cheat on its FSD software?

@ahall: Unless Audi comes out with NHTSB approved level 3 before the end of Q3 2017 Tesla will beat them.

Not even close, yes, Audi system is far superior. Don't believe me, check for yourself. Take a test drive. My AP2 is no where close to the AP1 system I test drove. Audi system does exactly as is expected,

For cars currently on the road for sure, Tesla will beat Audi.

Also guaranteed for cars below 50 K price tag.

Audi belongs to a premier German company that will never cheat ;)
