Tesla Model S Collision Avoidance HUMAN TEST! Collaboration Video ================================ Testing The Tesla Model S's Summon on my Guinea Pig, errr, friend Mike Anthony, during my annual Tesla & EV Get Together BBQ. We tested the car in 3 modes, Summon, Which did perfect job stopping each time, TACC And Autopilot failed to attempt to stop the car, though give a audible and visual collision warning. It failed in our opinion to attempt to slow or stop the car. Now, each situation is different, but in this case, it did not work. I have had it emergency brake when another car has pulled out in front of me though. See this video from my Test Subject Mike's POV! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ltHNKNozcUc Please note, everything was arranged in advance with pre-determined situations planned if the vehicle did not stop. And Mike signed the waiver for me that allowed me to dump his body in the lake if I managed to run him over......

But, we have managed to do it! The Tesla Model S and other Tesla Motors Vehicles use a series of sensors, including ultrasonic, and radar, as well as a forward facing autopilot camera to detect objects, people and animals to help avoid collision. IN these tests, we found a serious flaw in the Tesla Motors Collision Avoidance system. These tests are reminicient of in city driving at low speeds, and a person walking out in front of a vehicle, or biking out, skateboard etc... is quite common, and the human driver might not always be able to stop in time. So this Tesla Motors Collision Avoidance Autopilot system should be much more fool proof then it is. The great thing though, this can be corrected to prevent a crash or collision. Tesla and Tesla Motors can update the vehicle firmware at will, so in a future firmware update on the tesla model s, or tesla model x or tesla model 3, might incorporate better collision avoidance, and help prevent a tesla accident, or tesla hitting a human. If a Tesla hits human, the media news will of course use it against the case of electric vehicles. The summon features of tesla summon of the model s, worked flawless as designed, though the tesla autopilot and tesla traction aware cruise controll (TACC) failed to even attempt to slow or stop the vehicle. The Collision avoidance was a fail, so this crash test showed two very very serious flats of the Tesla Model S collision avoidance software. I hope this does not cause any tesla accidents, and I hope a update comes very soon to prevent some Tesla Accidents. So we start the video by testing first, the center sensors on the bumper using summon mode. Mike stood in front of the car, and I then summoned the car forward. The car stopped exactly 12inches (As set in the summon settings) from mike. We then backed up the car and summoned it again, testing a side bumper sensor. The car tried to drive around him to a certain extent, and had to be stopped from being summoned into the road. Third test was mike walking out in front of the moving Tesla Model S being summoned, again, flawless performance and the vehicle stopped. However, Test 2, TACC, failed to do anything but warn me, the driver, both audible and visually that I was going to collide with a object. The Collision avoidance system failed to stop the Tesla. This was a Tesla Fail . Test #3 was worse. The Collision Avoidance system while under autopilot waited even LONGER to alert me of a potential collision. I did have the distance setting at it's maximum of 7, and gave the collision avoidance system as much opportunity to attempt to slow or stop the car yet again, yet again, the collision avoidance system came up shore on the Tesla S and o...
