How does Tesla’s self driving car work?
Self driving cars have been the thing to talk about during the last decade. New self driving cars came out and new self driving car competitors entered the scenery. Today we will talk about one of those competitors, Tesla. Tesla brought the healthy and green environment we have today, as well as the fully new electric car. Entering the stage with the electric car, came self driving cars. The question today is, how does Tesla’s self driving car work?
Let’s first talk about the exterior of the car. There are 8 cameras that can sense cars that are changing lanes, stop signs coming up, and traffic lights. The data then is inputted into the Tesla and the car uses it. Voila! See it’s so easy. But there’s more. There is also radar modules around the car. They give the car accurate and precise measurements of distance to another car. The Tesla also has a very high tech setup which gives the car detailed and valuable information. Then the data is put into the Tesla computer which is analyzed by algorithms. That’s how the self driving environment in Tesla works. Using these methods the car can scan the road to avoid pedestrians, see that one car is changing lanes and more. The Tesla also gets information or data from other Teslas all around the world. That data helps notify the Tesla about roadwork, a car crash, or a lot of traffic. That data also helps the Tesla figure out how the road moves and how far the road continues. Tesla’s self driving cars have certainly made an impact on this world. Tesla is currently at level 2 on the autonomous index. Who knows which heights Elon Musk could take self driving to? Let’s assume for now that Tesla’s self driving cars will take us somewhere big in the future.
“Self-driving cars are the natural extension of active safety and obviously something we should do.”
— Elon Musk
