Active Safety Features
Tesla offers these safety features as standard equipment for all new Tesla cars, including Autopilot functionality and Full Self-Driving functions.
- Auto emergency braking: Detects obstacles or cars and applies brakes accordingly.
- Warning about potential collisions with stationary or moving objects in front of your vehicle
- Warning about potential side-collisions: Alerts to collisions from the side of your vehicle
- Obstacle-Aware Acceleration: Reduces acceleration if an obstacle is in front of the vehicle while driving at low speeds
- Warning – Warns if a vehicle is detected while moving into adjacent lanes
- Lane departure warning : Corrective steering is applied to keep the vehicle in its intended lane.
- Avoidance of lane-departure emergencies: Reverses the vehicle into the driving lane if the car detects an unintended lane change or a possible collision
Are all of Tesla’s self-driving?
Elon Musk claims Tesla will be able to produce self-driving cars by next year without the need for human drivers.
Reporters in Brazil were informed by Elon Musk that Tesla would soon have self-driving cars without the need to have human drivers at the wheel. This is expected to happen around next year.
This is Musk’s latest timeline for Tesla’s self-driving efforts, but he was wrong about the ones in the past.
On Friday, the Tesla CEO was in Brazil. According to reports, the reason for his trip was to establish a partnership with local authorities to launch a program to link Amazonian regions to SpaceX’s Starlink satellite internet. However, he also spoke about Tesla to local reporters.
Musk stated that Tesla will be able to create self-driving cars with no need for drivers in a year. This would make it around May 2023.
Musk has made this announcement before.
Famously, he has claimed that Tesla will have 1,000,000 robotaxis on its roads by 2020.
We reported recently that Musk had changed Tesla’s goal of 1 million robotaxis by the end of the year to ‘1,000,000 people in FSD Beta’. The difference is huge.
“Robotaxi” refers to a vehicle that can offer a taxi service, but without a driver.
Tesla’s Full Self-Driving Beta (FSD) Beta, on the other hand, has all the features that a self-driving vehicle should have, but they can fail. This is why the driver must be present at all times to ensure the system works.
Drivers behind the wheel also have a responsibility
Tesla will continue to improve the system by testing its FSD beta fleet and gathering data to train its neural networks. Tesla believes that the FSD system can eventually be safe for drivers to use, provided there are enough improvements. However, doubts have been raised about its ability to do so after several missed deadlines.
