Having 8 more years of life to spend exercising doesn't seem so great.
You do realise that you don't have to spend the 8 years continuously exercising? Right?
That's already been explained. The combination of truck color, angle (it was on the crest of a hill) and lighting conditions made the Tesla interpret it as being a flyover.
And why is that somehow not a flaw with the Tesla software?
As for "lorry", I have no problem with the BBC using "lorry" in place "tractor trailer", given that the BBC serves a primarily British audience. But Slashdot serves an international audience of decently educated people who are familiar with both British and American English, so it makes sense to use the original terminology wherever possible. In this particular case, the coverage is for a report authored by the US government, so using the term "tractor trailer" would make far more sense.
The BBC is a UK organisation, it will communicate using UK English. The term "tractor trailer" would be meaningless to most of us in the UK, if the BBC quoted it from an original US report they would have to provide an explanation.
Most British people would see "tractor trailer" and assume it was something to do with a farm tractor on or with a trailer. "Lorry" is a generic UK term for a big truck, a quick Google suggests that "articulated lorry" is a closer equivalent.
Autopilot is an automated pilot, not an Autonomous pilot. It automates part of the flying of the aircraft. It is not a replacement pilot. It can't make decisions.
This has been discussed endlessly on slashdot. The fact that some aviation company has used a highly misleading term to describe its product does not justify Tesla doing the same for cars.
I do not want to have a pointless argument with you
Yes you do.
What is worth doing is worth the trouble of asking somebody to do.
