Why Does Tesla Need Autopilot?
The Autopilot system available on Tesla vehicles is an ADAS,
or advanced driver assistance system, meant to improve driver comfort and safety.
To avoid collisions and stay in its lane, it uses onboard cameras, radar, and ultrasonic sensors to detect surrounding objects and lanes.
Autopilot's semi-autonomous driving features include lane-changing at the touch of a button and keeping up with the pace of traffic.
Additional safety features, such as forward collision warning,
blind spot monitoring, and emergency braking, are incorporated into Autopilot as well.
Taken together, these capabilities make Tesla's Autopilot the best suite of driver assistance technologies on the market today.
