    Thanks. It was in Orlando, (Winter Park specifically).

    To clarify what this was about, they did this on an AP1 equipped Tesla. AP1 was only used from about 2014 thru 2016 on the Model S/X. All cars since then (including the hundreds of thousands of Model 3s currently on the road) use AP2.x or AP3. The newer systems don't read speed signs and instead uses Google map data to determine the speed limit of the road it's on. Also not mentioned is this is with TACC or AP, both of which will not go faster then the car in front of it. So if you are in traffic, the car won't suddenly accelerate and crash into the car in front, it will simply keep pace with it as before. Being a Level 2 system, the driver is expected to maintain awareness of the car and surroundings, so if there was no traffic, they could easily shut the system off (it doesn't do any hard acceleration, so the driver would have plenty of time to notice something was wrong).

    Tesla's AP1 system uses a MobileEye system. The same system other car makers have used in probably millions of other cars. It's just that Tesla makes for a more flashy video and it actually leverages that speed info for the TACC. Most other cars simply used the speed sign info to display the speed limit on the dash and that's all. Because it's a MobileEye system, it would actually require MobileEye to fix their recognition software, not Tesla. However, I suppose Tesla could add some programming on their system to not trust a reported speed that's 50MPH over what Google Maps says it should be.

    I'm sure as self driving cars become more common, people will try to mess with them. They key thing to remember, a lot of these tricks will impact human drivers as well. I'm sure there are a lot of people that think it's perfectly OK to drive up to 85MPH in the city if the sign says so. While a self driving car should be better then a human, the bar is pretty low out there!

    Tesla has seized using MobileEye with recent production vehicles.
