Tesla is known for its safety technology and autopilot system. The Tesla Model 3 is one of the safest vehicles you can buy. Many videos are doing the rounds on the internet in which Tesla’s safety technology has automatically applied the brakes or took a turn to avoid an accident. The common thing in all these videos is that Tesla had warned before the accident happened. A video about this is going viral these days.

Tesla Electric Car Brakes

The video is from 2016 but has resurfaced on the internet and has gone viral on Twitter. The video has been shared by Hans Noordsij and has garnered over 3 million views. The video is of the dashcam, which is inbuilt in Tesla. In the video, we can hear the sound of a beep, and after that, the accident happens. Hence, Tesla was able to alert about the accident and had already applied the brakes.

How did this happen?

Some Tesla cars are equipped with radar and cameras. The radar emits ultrasonic waves, and these waves come back after hitting the objects in front of the vehicle. Through this and the front camera, the software can create an image of what is in front of it.

This hardware provides a safety feature called Automatic Emergency Braking. The vehicle detects that a collision is likely and applies the brakes automatically. The system can see that the car in front of the vehicle has come too close, and a crash may occur. Because some Tesla vehicles are equipped with a powerful radar, they can also detect the collision of two cars in front.

Tesla removed radar from vehicles.

Tesla has removed radar sensors from its Model 3 and Model Y, which raises questions about whether the new models are as safe as the previous ones. The new models will only use the cameras for safety features. The Model 3 and Model Y has eight cameras all around the car. The system will now use these cameras as there is no radar on offer. Tesla is also not offering lidar with its vehicles.

Lidars provide a high-resolution picture of ‘what’s next, but they are unreliable under different weather conditions. Radars are relatively cheap, but they can be confusing in size and objects. They have low resolution but work in various weather conditions. Cameras, on the other hand, are weather-friendly as dirt or snow can damage the camera. Plus, he has a limited vision. They can only see the vehicle directly in front of your car while the lidar and radar can see ahead of it.
