Awesome identification - Pickup truck with a cap

Awesome identification - Pickup truck with a cap

Here's something interesting I came across.

I was driving behind a Nissan pickup truck with a cap on it's bed - so it's practically a SUV as far as looks go. My Model 3 identified it correctly as a pickup truck!! I was amazed. My car is on 2019.40.50.1

Opinion: I think deep learning is able to even identify the make/model of vehicles

Opinion: Tesla doesn't have a visualization for a pickup truck with a cap on it. I think it could have identified it as a van pretty easily as well. The back glass on the camper may be a defining characteristic in the car's identification.

@derotam,
But it didn't identify the vehicle as a van or SUV, the truck with the cap looks closer visually to those vehicles. What characteristic was used to ID the vehicle correctly as a pickup?

Just because it identified it correctly, doesn't mean it will ALWAYS identify that type of vehicle correctly. I have Semi's get identified as all kinds of things, and it changes as I pass by.

True, and it is impressive that it identified it as a pickup truck at all. Especially from a rear angle. We've seen this with other vehicle types, identification is often unreliable - but it gets better with each update.

I’m with Vmulla. I’ve noticed (and been impressed by this) many times. I’d expect an SUV but usually get a truck.

My Stela knows a pickup with cap is a pickup. Don’t know why it matters, but I’m impressed. She also thinks my garage is a semi or big bus. I forget which.

Elephant in the room: Set for 75 in a 55? @vmulla, I'm shocked! ;-)

Second elephant... CHILL mode :-D

:))
Ok, I'm a big fan of the chill mode, especially after I burnt through half my tread in the first 7-8k

I do chill mode with my foot. Then when I don't want it, I do that with my foot too!

I used to listen to WTOP all the time commuting and going to customers, @vmulla.
