Los Angeles:

Tesla is known for designing auto-pilot cars but on Thursday a car crash recorded on dashcam showed the car’s amazing concepts.

In a dashcam footage, it was revealed that a Tesla car predicted a car crash just seconds before it actually happened.

The auto-pilot feature realized that an accident was about to occur on the A2 highway in the Netherlands.

However, the car’s autopilot feature tried to assist the car by triggering the alarm and the emergency braking system moments before the crash unfolded.

It was able to sense what’s up ahead by utilizing safe-driving-pattern monitoring, but in vain as the crash collision happened. Meanwhile, Hans Noordsij, who recently shared the video on Twitter, confirmed that nobody was serious hurt in the crash.

The company is expected to roll out its Enhanced Autopilot along with improved accident-avoidance technology before the end of the year.

The car’s autopilot will also feature self-parking and automatic lane-changing capabilities.

Founder of Tesla, Elon Musk said, “The foundation is laid for cars to be fully autonomous at a safety level we believe to be at least twice that of a person, maybe better.”
