Tesla’s Autopilot Predicts Crashes Freakishly Early [VIDEO]

All Tesla vehicles, including the future Model 3, have the hardware needed for full self-driving capability at a safety level substantially greater than that of a human driver.  As you can see in the video, all these drivers have to do is angrily lay on the horn after the fact.  This is an awesome demonstration of where transportation technology is headed, and how countless lives can be saved.

Teslas have eight surround cameras provide 360 degrees of visibility around the car at up to 250 meters of range. Twelve updated ultrasonic sensors complement this vision, allowing for detection of both hard and soft objects at nearly twice the distance of the prior system. A forward-facing radar with enhanced processing provides additional data about the world on a redundant wavelength that is able to see through heavy rain, fog, dust and even the car ahead.  The car calculates changing velocities of surrounding vehicles to predict whether you are in danger of an accident beyond your possible comprehension.  I can’t wait to see more videos showing how innovative technology is changing what we think is possible on the road.

Guy is Bringing his Tesla Model S P100D to the Drag Strip and Toasting the Competition

So it’s happened. Kids are now bringing their Teslas to the local midwest drag strip to race against big block engines and souped up imports. Kind of like how people are switching to those e-cigs. I guess it was only a matter of time before die hard coal burners noticed sub-3 0-60 for about $100,000. That’s not entirely out of reach if your dad owns the local Ford dealership or something along those lines. With 100% torque from a stand still, Tesla Model S can smoke just about anything the locals bring to the track. One YouTube channel, Tesla Racing Channel, has been entirely dedicated to doing just that for about 5 years now. They currently own a P90D and a P100D Model S with Ludicrous mode with which they drag race on a daily basis. They intend to get a Tesla Roadster as well as a Model 3 to add to their collection. So if you ever were curious about what the Tesla Model S can do in the 1/8 and 1/4 mile, check out this guy’s channel.

Here they demonstrate the difference in acceleration between the P90D and P100D:
