All Tesla vehicles, including the future Model 3, have the hardware needed for full self-driving capability at a safety level substantially greater than that of a human driver. As you can see in the video, all these drivers have to do is angrily lay on the horn after the fact. This is an awesome demonstration of where transportation technology is headed, and how countless lives can be saved.
Teslas have eight surround cameras provide 360 degrees of visibility around the car at up to 250 meters of range. 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. A forward-facing radar with enhanced processing provides additional data about the world on a redundant wavelength that is able to see through heavy rain, fog, dust and even the car ahead. The car calculates changing velocities of surrounding vehicles to predict whether you are in danger of an accident beyond your possible comprehension. I can’t wait to see more videos showing how innovative technology is changing what we think is possible on the road.
