Tesla claims this is a world first and said the test was successful based on the crash test with dummies.
Tesla uses data from its cars to optimally deploy airbags
Tesla has once again shown its technological ingenuity and has now showcased new crash safety testing technology based on data collected from real use cases. All Tesla cars are loaded with a constellation of sensors and cameras and are therefore capable of collecting this data. She has now published a preview of her “Tesla Crash Lab” which shows how she designs safer vehicles using the data she has acquired from her active fleet of cars.
“By collecting data on the millions of vehicles in our fleet and replicating real-life crash scenarios, we are able to design some of the safest vehicles on the road,” Tesla reveals. This is not the first time that Tesla’s crash lab has been presented as it first presented it in Fremont, California.
“Previously the best way to design a car was to go through industry standard crash tests. And those crash tests are like a few grains of sand. These grains of sand are meant to represent the beach, but actually the beach. is infinitely complex. Every crash is different, “revealed Dan, Tesla engineer. “With emerging technologies there are opportunities. Now we can look at the real world and design for it,” he added.
Tesla already has over a million vehicles on the road, so it sucks up all of that data. Tesla says it can detect 10 milliseconds of crash type and cause the airbag to react accordingly using machine learning. When the accident occurs, Tesla even claims to know what the exact position of the seat and steering wheel would be even though the driver has adjusted them and will deploy the airbags in a way that provides optimum safety. Tesla claims this is a world first and said the test was successful based on the crash test with dummies.
