New leaked video shows Tesla can actually predict road accidents. The footage shows that Elon Musk’s EV was able to avoid the accident before it happens.
Tesla electric cars are becoming more popular than ever, especially the new Model S Plaid and Model 3. And now, it seems like this giant electric vehicle manufacturer will get more popular as a new video is leaked showing that its autopilot could avoid an upcoming car crash.
The video shows a Tesla anticipating a crash with incredible The incident actually took place back in 2016, as video footage shows the Tesla reacting to the danger on the road and stopping instead of getting stuck into the collision like every other car might have done.
This amazing feat became possible, thanks to Tesla’s Autopilot 8.0 system, which uses radar to track the road from two cars in advance and therefore track the danger on the way. So, the footage is fairly unremarkable, but that is actually what makes it remarkable.
To give you more idea, here are other details of the popular Tesla Autopilot 8.0 system.
Car Roads To Be Predicted?
Frank Van Hoesel, the one who posted the video, said that he managed to get out of the way of the crash, and it looks like a bad one, that was taking place ahead of him on the road. As the video shows, the Tesla Model X’s Forward Collision Warning does exactly that, it warns him of a collision happening ahead of him and takes action to avoid it.
Mercifully, no one was injured in the crash, and people just got the video of the incident to look at now and marvel at the impressiveness of Tesla’s collision avoidance system. However, you still need to remember that your safety is still not guaranteed.
You can definitely still crash in a Tesla, but the system is there to help you out and stop really bad smashes from taking place. It’s stuff like this that just increases the clamour for cars that are capable of driving themselves, the more collisions that are avoided, the better the technology will become.
On the other hand, the EV manufacturer explained that its Autopilot system works through eight surround cameras that provide 360 degrees of visibility around the car at up to 250 meters of range.” The company said, “twelve updated ultrasonic sensors complement this vision, allowing for detection of both hard and soft objects at nearly twice the distance of the prior system.”
The EV maker added that “Autopilot advanced safety and convenience features are designed to assist you with the most burdensome parts of driving. Autopilot introduces new features and improves existing functionality to make your Tesla safer and more capable over time.”
EV developer added that although its Autopilot system is considered advanced, drivers are still advised to have active supervision and to avoid making the vehicle autonomous, especially if there are lots of cars around.
