Same strategy I imagine. Autopilot is programmed to be very conservative. Crashing and/or killing people is really bad PR for a car famed for it's self-driving ability.It was a *pair* of cyclists that the car/sensors/AI detected. Wonder what its/their strategy would have been in the case of a singleton?
Valid points. Autopilot is mostly tested in America which isn't known for its abundance of narrow single lane roads. That said, Tesla's have night vision and all sorts of telemetry which means that its vision should be better than a humans, and decision making (as I mentioned above) tends to be conservative. You would be most likely to have irate motorists behind you honking their horns as the Tesla refuses to overtake until there is sufficient room.Now do it without the cyclists singling out, and with the outside one suddenly swerving round a drain cover.
Edit: on a winding rough surfaced road, with cars parked either side, in the rain, on a single lane etc etc. Basically do it in anything other than the absolutely ideal conditions which are in that vid.
I am not them. I cannot make them behave. I have been part of campaigns for more cyclist training and more traffic policing for many years. I do not deserve to have my life put in danger because some other cyclists break rules (some of which are unjustified bull shoot as I am sure you know) or even the law.Essentially before cyclist get high and mighty about how cars should pass them, cyclist should learn to follow the rules of the road.
