Though we have seen numerous videos of Teslas crashing on highways, catching fire spontaneously, and driving through storefronts, it’s been rare we’ve been able to see exactly what it looks like through the eyes of Tesla’s autonomous driving software.
This week, auto blog Jalopnik offered up a rare glance into what it looks like from a Tesla’s computer during a high speed Tesla wreck. The video was posted by Twitter user and “hacker/security researcher” @GreenTheOnly, who, due to his research in the area, occasionally gets access to vehicle “black boxes” from salvage yards.
This week he analyzed video and data from a wrecked Tesla that he was sent. Admittedly, the piece states that it doesn’t think Autopilot was active right at the time of the impact, but the video still highlights the “problems of any Level 2 semi-autonomous system”.
Ugh, another one for the “who drives like that?” book I guess.
Looks like poor Honda went airborne but I don’t see any news for that date/location so hopefully nobody died or was seriously hurt.
