Tesla's new crash-avoidance technology is based on real-life crash scenarios
Ifengnet science and Technology news on October 13, Beijing time, Tesla revealed the latest anti-collision technology based on data collected from real crash scenarios. In a video tesla posted about its "Tesla Collision Lab," its engineers are testing a new anti-collision technology.
"By collecting data from millions of vehicles and recreating actual crashes, we are able to design the safest cars possible," tesla's safety engineer, known only as Dan, explains in the video. Previously, the best way to design a car was through industry-standard crash tests. These collision experiments are like sand that the designers hope will show the beach, but in reality, the beach is incredibly complex. Every crash has a different character."
Tesla says that using the data it collects, it can determine the type of collision within 10 milliseconds (0.01 second) of a collision, determine the exact position of the seat and steering wheel, and allow airbags to react accordingly to maximize the safety of the passenger.
After extensive simulations, Tesla put the technology to the test for the first time: A pickup truck collided with a Model Y, and judging by the dummy "sitting" in the car, the new crash-avoidance technology "won out." (Writer/Shuangye)
