Tesla Prediction!

Dash cam footage from the Netherlands from a Tesla driver shows the car’s autopilot function predicting an accident before anyone saw it coming.

In the clip below you can see a bunch of cars travelling down the A2 highway in the Netherlands. It is here where the ‘Forward Collision Warning’ on the Tesla beeps and the car is brought to a halt by the emergency braking system. Moments later a crash occurs.

Incredibly the Tesla was able to predict the crash but also recognize what was coming two cars ahead of itself.

Tesla announced in September 2016 that an upgrade to it’s autopilot feature would rely heavily on this feature. With the update being rolled out to it’s first generation of autopilot hardware.

“The most significant upgrade to Autopilot will be the use of more advanced signal processing to create a picture of the world using the onboard radar,”
