Model 3 Autosteer

Model 3 Autosteer

We have a Model S with Mobileye Autosteer, purchased about 3 years ago (1914 model?), and recently picked up our Model 3 (Vin...3008). The Autosteer does not function as well as that on the S, and I'm curious why. When the 3 wanders toward the edge of freeway lane, the corrections are more abrupt, and on many occasions wanders over the centerline on a two-lane road. Cresting a slight rise on a flat road with or without curves has been an issue for the S, but seems to be more of an issue for the 3.

Was Tesla deprived of the software used with Mobileye at the time of the divorce, and do the post-Mobileye S's suffer from the same issues as my 3?

Together with the lack of fingertip activation and cruise speed adjustment on the 3, the above issues make autosteer and cruisecontrol less convenient, and consequently less useful and I find myself using them less on the 3. A disappointment, when I was hoping that the post-Mobileye autosteer on the 3 would be improved over our S.

Can anyone explain?

Your experience in the Model 3 mirrored my own. TACC is great but Autosteer not so much. Hopefully that will change soon with an update.

also hope TACC could one day not be an EAP required package.

I wasn't aware that Tesla had autosteer in 1914

Tesla is developing their own Auto-Pilot software after the split from Mobile-Eye it is not quite to the level of AP 1 yet but Elon said that there are some big updates coming soon for it. In fact there is an article on Eletrek today about it. https://electrek.co/2018/02/23/tesla-autopilot-beta-testing-new-autopilo...

In 1914 it was called horsesteer and actually worked quite well. No cameras or LIDAR required either.

The 1914 autosteer was killed by Edison. ;p

Yes. horsesteer was far better than any self-driving system today. You could fall asleep at the reigns and the vehicle would safely navigate back to your barn without crashing.
