Let’s take a look at a speeding car, minutes before the accident. The vehicle is driving at a high speed, and the driver starts to depress the brake pedal. At what point is the automatic emergency braking function activated? If not immediately, when does it take effect? How much effect does it have on the velocity of the halting car?
Tesla’s automatic car system was first introduced in 2014 and as of May 2021 the advanced autopilot system was released to a few thousand Tesla owners for testing. Since then, there have been a number of collisions and accidents that have put a tremendous amount of pressure on the company, from the public as well as from family members of the victims. Luckily, or shall we say, thanks to responsible company practice, Tesla’s cars log every drive so that each action and reaction of the car’s system is uploaded to the cloud. This makes finding the cause of accidents as simple as clicking a button.
