With the current software, which is not at all intended for autonomous operation, sure.

Just like if you turned on your bike computer and expected it to steer, you'd get hurt too.

Wow, who knew that all you had to do was tell people not to break the law and that would fix it.

The Tesla still killed less people per passenger mile driven than non-Tesla cars in that time.

And it's not supposed to be autonomous - the reason people are dying in Teslas is still driver error.

Charging packs all at once is problematic. Without the ability to monitor each cell, charging is prone to getting the cells way out of balance. This is because if you charge the whole pack as a unit,...

I use a Metro 550 in strobe mode during the day.

I have been told by car drivers that it GREATLY improves my visibility. Nobody has complained about it, many have liked it.

Unfortunately true. You can't actually expect justice.

You don't need to capture the plate to show what happened. In fact I don't really worry much about capturing plate numbers these days since few cameras can do it reliably anyway.

I once had a Plantronics headset that was wretched. If very much of my body was between it and the phone it would cut out. Sold that hunk of junk.

Maybe it's just your body position at speed?

People sure get worked up. You'd think they don't have an immune system. No wonder people have so many allergies, they live in a sterile environment.

The only speed dependent thing I can think of that emits RF would be possibly wireless computer or dynamo? Try removing one or the other and see what happens.
