Tesla AutoPilot Feature

Saw this article about the autonomous driving feature of Tesla from Norcal DOC. It mentioned bicyclists and I wonder if the conclusions will apply to motorcycles too. Beware.

My concern is that most drivers are oblivious to motorcycles (and bicycles). Among those drivers are likely to be some software engineers who, themselves, may very well be oblivious. I think this increases the likelihood that as they design these systems, they're giving very little thought to any vehicles that are smaller than a car. While BMW and Bosch have a better idea about this, they're not in charge at Tesla...

This video shows the idea the cars could communicate with motorcycles. I've seen something like this from BMW too. It could be a good idea, but only if everyone is on the "same channel", that is, has a common communication system.
