Tesla Semi apparently has a "Mad Max" mode

Elon Musk tweeted a photo that shows the console from a test vehicle with a bunch of different Autopilot settings and configurations, one of which is called "Mad Max." The setting is found under the category of "Blind Spot Threshold," and it has "Standard" and "Aggressive" modes, too. Though Musk didn't explain specifically what these settings do, we suspect they have something to do with how aggressive the truck is when making lane changes. Transcript: A tweet from Tesla CEO shows the console from a test vehicle listing “Mad Max” as an Autopilot Setting. The setting is found under the category of “Blind Spot Threshold” and it has “Standard” and “Aggressive” modes, too. We suspect that “Mad Max” mode has something to do with how aggressive the truck is when making lane changes. The “Blind Spot Threshold” probably determines how close a car in the next lane can be when the truck executes a merge. Aside from “Mad Max” mode we can see another intriguing category called “Augmented Vision.” Odds are it’s just a fancy term for a heads-up display, but we can’t wait to find out for sure. What do you think Tesla has in store with Mad Max mode?
