More forced autopilot disengagement without warning

I noticed since a while (I think since 2022.40.4 update) that I get the force autopilot disengagement after a longer period.

My usecase. Around the 20 mins of autopilot drivingin a straight line (almost no movement of the steering wheel) it disengages the auotpilot (red steering wheel and audio alert that I have to take over). I need to stop the car to be able to reactivate my autopilot again.

Are more people experiencing this issue?

Yes, this has happened to me 4 times this month. No warnings or anything! I’ve never had this happen once prior to installing 2022.40.4. 619D9DFB-3236-406E-87D5-BFFB31F99A51.jpeg

I have seen (don't remember where tho) that the interior camera is being used to determine if you are "focused" on driving and that some people got disengaments after raising their arms.
That may be the reason why you saw these disengaments.

I have my interior camera covered with black vinyl.

Well that’s not the case for me. I think it’s more related to straight driving and (lack of) sensing the arms at the steering wheel. Those disengagements are without warning (no beep or blue flashing screen).

This latest build is supposed to detect cheater devices, perhaps the covered camera is being detected?

FWIW I’ve had FSD bail on me when driving directly into the sun on occasion. Don’t know if that counts as a forced disengagement.
