Tesla confuses the moon with yellow traffic signals and people are confused.
Tesla’s self-driving feature is quite interesting but the strangest thing happened with a person when he noticed his car is stopping even without any traffic signal in the path. Jordan Nelson, the owner of the car, soon realised that his Tesla is confusing the moon with a yellow traffic light and he shared this information with Elon Musk on Twitter. Take a look at his tweet below.
Hey @elonmusk you might want to have your team look into the moon tricking the autopilot system. The car thinks the moon is a yellow traffic light and wanted to keep slowing down. 🤦🏼 @Teslarati @teslaownersSV @TeslaJoy pic.twitter.com/6iPEsLAudD

This could be highly problematic on planets with two moons. What does this do to the plans for a Mars colony?

Once Tesla takes over there won’t be as much pollution so the Moon won’t be yellow anymore. Problem solved 👍

Wait until you find out how many mistakes humans make. We may be less than half baked, and we are pretty much unsafe for real world use.

What do you want now? That the car knows about celestial objects also, and treats them accordingly?
