The video was released by Tesla last month to demonstrate the capabilities of its current generation of self-driving cars. The video provides an inside look of the self-driving platform and how it views and interprets the usual obstacles that are encountered by a typical vehicle while moving on the road. The video has been fast-forwarded to reduce the playtime.
The self-driving cars are undoubtedly one of the biggest wonders of science and technology. Just imagine, thousands, even hundreds of thousands of decisions being taken in the split of a second while the car is self-driving on the road, just like the human brain does. Assessing all those sounds and images and then reacting in milliseconds, it must be an amazing experience to travel in a self-driving car. These cars will change the way we travel. The most wonderful thing about the self-driving cars is that they will minimize accidents that kill thousands on the roads every year.
I have repeatedly said on my blog that if they really want to test the grit of the self-driving cars, they should start testing them on Indian roads rather than on American roads. Let’s see how these cars fare amidst the unadulterated lawlessness and unpredictabilities of Indian roads.
