With apologies to @elonmusk and the @tesla #autopilot team, we believe that Skydio 2 is the most advanced autonomous device of any kind that has ever been commercialized. Take a look under the hood and let us know if you agree.
To keep a cinematic framing of the biker while dodging obstacles at high speeds, Skydio 2 has to estimate its own motion, build an obstacle map, estimate the biker’s path, and handle the aerodynamics of fast flight, all in real time onboard the drone.
Each of Skydio’s six 4K navigation cameras has a super-fisheye lens with 200° field-of-view, so the autonomy engine can confidently guide Skydio 2 in any direction.

@Tesla @elonmusk #Tesla #autopilot <start long rant> This in not really a rant, but more of an observation. First of all, it should be understood that I am an admitted Tesla fanboy. I was an early line waiter for my Model 3, and we have been owners of Tesla stock for much longer.
I believe in the future of EVs and Tesla in particular. I have EAP and have paid for FSD, so I’m behind the effort all the way. At 68 years old, I have owned many vehicles, including a number of really nice ones. I received my dual-motor Model 3 in August ’18,
and it is FAR and away the best car I have ever owned - period. Also, my background is in computer software and I am well aware of just how difficult this problem is. Faded lines, shadows, sudden left turn lanes, people pulling onto high speed, two-lane roads.

Thanks to @turo I'm renting a #TeslaModel3 during my visit to Silicon Valley - certainly a different experience than traditional #carrental agencies #future #zeroemission #electriccars
Gone to Tesla's HQ in Fremont, California to try the supercharging there. It's supposed to be much faster than before.
I had hoped the Model 3 would charge at the new rate but it didn't happen

First road trip in the @Tesla Model 3 Performance:

Zurich🇨🇭- Geneva🇨🇭- Les Houches 🇫🇷 - Nice 🇫🇷 - Zurich🇨🇭 (1400km)

Good opportunity to test #supercharger, #destinationcharger and compare consumption to forecast from @RouteBetter

Will share my experience from the road 🤓
Start in ZRH:
SoC: 38% (11°)

First SC (Kriegstetten):
Arrived with: 15% (14°)
95.6km / 1:17h / 182Wh/km
Charged to: 41% with constant 116kW

So as requested, here's a thread on some AP internals. I lost it twice already trying to paste some pics, so refer to a more expanded version on reddit at:…

Software is based on Linux Buildroot ][ 2016.05:
they use runit as their init replacement:

Of the two nodes the one does absolutely nothing.

People on prod cars miss a bunch of funcitonality. They miss on real dashcam that lets them annotatte the records and record any camera or combination to a much faster ssd you can just plug into a USB-C on the side instead of slow usb2 in console: 3/
