It is said that this is tesla Model 3 for the first time a traffic accident!
Just last Friday, tesla was in a traffic accident in Morgan hill, calif., when a Model 3 turned into a stream.
The accident reporter, Jonathan Brusco, also provided the media with a picture of the vehicle’s driving direction when an accident occurred. It can be seen that the vehicle in the accident apparently lost control when turning the corner, and did not swerve as planned but rushed straight out of the road.
So the question is, is this Model 3 due to the driver’s failure to take over the vehicle in time, or is there a problem with the autopilot system that caused the accident?
Tesla’s AutoPilot 2.0 AutoPilot system, at best, is an L3 autonomous driving (it’s considered L2 in the industry), which is conditional autonomous driving. Under certain conditions, the driver can give up control completely and hand it to the machine, and if the system needs a manual takeover, the driver will occasionally help.
The most worrying thing about Google is that it is difficult for the driver to respond in time when the driver is in need of a manual takeover, and it is difficult for the human to make a seamless connection with the machine. For security reasons, Google has decided to skip the L3 automatic pilot and develop the most advanced autonomous driving system.
In fact, there is some truth to this concern. As far as I know, tesla’s Autopilot system is only a similar to a self-adaptive cruise control device. When the car owner activates this function, the car will automatically follow the car and adjust the speed within the speed limit. The car can change itself after the owner has turned on the light. But this kind of driving assistant, without the front car for the vehicle to follow automatically, the car can not turn the Angle of the larger Angle, also can not turn the head.
When the Model 3 of the accident is turning, it is likely that the machine feels in control, while the driver thinks the machine is in control. Good! As a result, both sides are out of control, so the vehicle runs straight out of the road and into the river!
Of course, another possibility is that the Model 3 autopilot fails, and both the machine and the driver lose control of the vehicle. If this is the case, it is the technical problem of tesla, not the technology! That’s what worries Mr Musk the most!
Lenovo has recently released its “2017 Navigant Research ranking”, which is the bottom of the list. Read the list of authority or is that it will be from the company’s vision, partners, production strategy, market development strategy, technology, marketing & sales & products, production capacity, product quality & reliability, product mix, and long-term commitment to comprehensive evaluation and so on ten dimensions, selects the global mainstream competitiveness ranking players in the field of automatic driving.
In fact, the reasons for tesla’s bottom line may be various. Tesla’s Autopilot in 2017 is in the middle of the rules. Although there are no negative accidents caused by car owners’ misoperation, there is no more new technological progress. In fact, Autopilot2.0’s update came to a halt in the second half of last year, when tesla was preparing the Model 3 and the management began to solve the problem of the Model 3 production line.
At the same time, Mr Truss has broken up with nvidia and is partly focused on developing autonomous driving chips. But the problem is that partners, productivity, product quality & reliability are all important reference dimensions for competitiveness rankings, and nvidia is at least a plus.
