While this is older article, things don't seem to have improved...
PS. Not singling out Telsa specifically, all automakers are just as bad...
The Teslas use a combination of radar and optical cameras, they've chosen not to use Lidar (presumably for cost reasons). They've also chosen not to use eye tracking tech to monitor driver attention, unlike GM with their Super Cruise option. So driver attention is tracked via steering wheel input.
Looks like the Tesla software gets confused when presented with a tractor trailor broadside, the optical cameras are basically blind to the white trailer against a bright sky, it sees it on radar, thinks its an overhead gantry type sign, and ignores it. They also apparently disable the radar input at overpasses to avoid false positive braking problems.
