On May 7th, 2016, a 40-year-old man named Joshua Brown was killed when his Tesla Model S sedan collided with a tractor-trailer that was crossing his path on US Highway 27A, near Williston, Florida. Nearly three years later, another Tesla owner, 50-year-old Jeremy Beren Banner, was also killed on a Florida highway under eerily similar circumstances: his Model 3 collided with a tractor-trailer that was crossing his path, shearing the roof off in the process.
So after at first I noticed the trailer was detected normally and all is fine, but then… I noticed that driveable space (the green shade) and how the path planner reacted to that.
This trailer here is totally taken as an overhead structure! 2/ pic.twitter.com/YLU0rVvgL9
