With the latest 8.0 software update Tesla’s autopilot can create an image of the surrounding using the on-board radar sensor which includes seeing not just the vehicles around you but even those beyond… it’s like seeing though other objects.
What a time to be alive!
There’s a video evidence of that shows the car doing just that… predicting an accident that’s about to happen ahead of the car it’s following. If you watch carefully you will notice that the Tesla is slowing before the car in front even hits its brakes!
There are certain aspects of this accident that need addressing and just because of that I’ll call this evidence and not proof. We don’t know for sure what cause the autopilot to issue the warning. We also don’t know for sure whether the driver intervened or the car predicted that although the guy who uploaded the video claims there was no intervention.
