Tesla is expected to roll out with its Enhanced Autopilot just before this year ends. The Autopilot is set to feature a much improved accident-avoidance technology, on top of self-parking and automatic lane-changing capabilities. “The fountain is laid for cars to be fully autonomous at a safety level we believe to be at least twice that o fa person, maybe better,” said Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla.
Judging by the footage of a Tesla predicting a car crash just seconds before it happens, we can safely assume that they’re going to roll out as advertised.
Check it out:
Realizing that an accident was close to happening while running on the A2 highway in the Netherlands, the car’s autopilot feature kicks in and triggers the alarm, causing the emergency breaking system to stop the car just before the crash happens.
Can you imagine just how many lives would be saved if this ever goes mainstream and works as well – if not better – than advertised?
Speaking of lives saved, the person responsible for sharing the video above on Twitter reports that nobody was seriously hurt during the high-speed collision.
