(There’s a TL;DR at the bottom of this post.)
I am currently working on an Autopilot system that I am planning on open sourcing, however I won’t do so until I am sure that the system is fully functional, so that Roblox developers can finally implement autopilot systems to their games. I am also working on a Full Self-Driving car similar to Tesla’s real world version of FSD Beta, I have already developed a working, fully functional, FSD system, however I am not confident with my code yet, I am planning on redoing the whole code so that its clean and understandable.
To those of you who are not familiar with Tesla’s, heres a quick summary of different versions of Tesla’s technology features. There are multiple versions of driver assist features in Tesla’s, these features are Autopilot, Enhanced Autopilot, and Full Self-Drive.
Lets talk about Autopilot first, Autopilot comes standard with all Tesla’s that are being sold today, this feature works in any PAINTED road that goes 30 mph and above, it’s basically AutoSteer and Adaptive Cruise Control combined so that the car can drive itself in its lane. Besides keeping up with speed, adjusting to cars in front of it, and keeping itself inside its lane, Autopilot will also takeover to avoid collisions, such as changing lanes with an oncoming car, inattentive driver, emergency braking, and etc. Again, all these safety features comes standard with all Tesla’s, which are also updated regularly with over the air software updates, so every Tesla vehicle, even the very first manufactured Model S (Tesla’s first production car) are up-to-date and can function like a Tesla that just came out of the factory.
Now, let’s talk about Enhanced Autopilot, Enhanced Autopilot is basically Autopilot but with more features, this feature lets the car change lanes, navigate on highways/freeways, take an exit to another freeway, and take an exit off the freeway. This feature does NOT come standard with all Tesla’s, you have to pay an extra $6,000 (current price at the time of writing) to add it to your vehicle.
Full Self-Driving, or FSD, is widely known in the autonomy/technology field, I myself has access to FSD, it has been great so far, it can take me to any destination I put in the navigation. However this system is in BETA, meaning they are still heavily working on it to make it better, due to it being classified as Level 2 autonomy on the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) chart, THE DRIVER IS FULLY IN CONTROL AND IS LIABLE FOR ANY ACCIDENT CAUSED BY THEIR CAR. With that being said, the car won’t go rogue and just crash you because it feels like it, in fact it is way more sensitive to other cars and pedestrians, that it won’t even move on a 4 way stop sign if it see’s the other car rolling the stop sign. Enough with the safety instructions, FSD is a feature that you can purchase for a price of $12,000 (current price at the time of writing), it has all the features of both Autopilot and Enhanced Autopilot, but with more features, such as stopping at stop signs and traffic lights, maneuvering on a tighter and UNPAINTED roads, such as dirt roads.
There are more features I haven’t mentioned, such as Autopark, Summon, and Smart Summon. All of the features I’ve talked about here are being planned to be added to the game I am developing, but for now I have Autopilot ready for initial public testing.
I heavily ask you guys not to vote on the game at it’s current state right now. However I do ask that you guys send feedbacks through here or DM me. Thank you!
TL;DR - Autopilot System is working, will be open sourced when fully functional. FSD System in the works, however it will only be fully exclusive in the game I am working on until I am ready to open source it.
