Improve AP Hold Steering Wheel Intervals

24

Description

Using autosteer, when the conditions are very good (clear weather, high contrast center lines, controlled access roads, etc.) allow a longer time between the “hold the steering wheel” reminders.

Another option would allow the driver to select the interval amount, like some of the other settings along with appropriate warnings for picking a higher interval.

Competitive/Pricing/Notes

I appreciate the alertness reminders in EAP for where it is in development, it needs to be smarter or variable.

Multiple stories of drivers trying to do all sorts of silly things to override this feature in an unsafe way shows that drivers would like more control over the frequency of the alerts.

I would argue "drivers trying to do all sorts of silly things to override this feature in an unsafe way " do not understand they are playing with fire and most likely also do not understand why Tesla is approaching the suite of Autopilot features in their chosen manner.
I agree the 'every 10 seconds' is a burden and the amount of force necessary to stop the warning will sometimes throw me out of the AP.

I did find that you can adjust the volume or click the speed up or down by 1 MPH and this also stops the warning. I found the radio to be the easier solution.
