Well, they’re both good. They’re both cars with their differences, but also both VERY comfortable. We love them. I own a 2018 Tesla Model S and a 2014 BMW 5-Series Touring, so I feel qualified to answer. Both cars have their ups and downs: Tesla Driving. Driving a Tesla is just very different from driving any other car. Its instant acceleration and power is just insane, but it also does a really good job at driving comfortable at a low speed. Especially with the adaptive air suspension. Silence while driving. When you’re on the motorway, just cruising, the Tesla is just so much quieter. It gives a more comfortable experience. Charging. If We want to fully charge our Tesla, and have a range of 470 km (292 miles), it costs us about 8 euro (9 dollars). The BMW on the other hand… costs us 80 euro for a full tank. Infotainment screen. The Tesla’s big 17 inch screen is just so much better than the BMW’s. Not only is it larger, but also easier to use. It’s got more functions too. The Tesla has its own web browser and LTE connectivity, which makes it possible to acces my files on Word. In a car. On an infotainment screen. Amazing. Autopilot. Tesla’s Autopilot is just amazing. My dad uses Autopilot 80% of the time while driving to work. It does an excellent job at keeping distance to the person in front at me, and also at braking and steering. What I must say though: it’s not flawless either. Sometimes it will make little mistakes when making a turn, so you have to take over and do it yourself. It’s just an assistant, not a self-driving system. BMW Build quality. The BMW’s build quality is just a little bit better than the Tesla’s. The Tesla has frameless doors, which means the windows have to open a little so it won’t hit the trim above the window. But occasionally they don’t open far enough. So sometimes when I open the passenger door the window hits the gloss trim, which is just really unsatisfying and it also gives a squeaky noise. Also things like interior materials; there’s no thing in the BMW that can be touched that doesn’t feel premium. Climate. The Tesla is electric, so it needs more time to warm up the car in a cold winter. And when it’s warmed up (which usually takes about 15 min) it’s not even that warm. It’s not cold, but it’s certainly not warm either. And, the heated seats in the Tesla just plain suck. They take a lot of time to warm up, and they’re not even that warm too. So when driving a Tesla in the winter, don’t expect to be in a comfy warm cabin. The BMW does all of the above exactly opposite. It’s warm in no-time, and the heated seats grill your butt when turned on. Adaptive cruise control. The BMW has this function, and it is really nice. The Tesla does too, and it can even make turns by itself. But! When driving on a 2 lane road the Tesla will sometimes brake by itself, because it thinks oncoming traffic will crash into it, and this is very annoying. The Tesla does this even when Autopilot isn’t engaged. The BMW never does this; and just keeps comfortably cruising along. Lights. We have the facelifted Tesla, which means that we have the LED headlights. They’re doing a good job, but the lights in the BMW are way better. The high beam assistant always works perfect, and the lights are just brighter in general. And, when making a turn, the BMW’s lights turn with you so you can see where you’re going. That was it, thanks for reading. I hope you enjoyed. Personally I prefer the Tesla, because it’s just an amazing car to drive, and technologically much more advanced. We regularly get new features via over the air software-updates, which are totally free. The BMW is a great car too, I wouldn’t wanna get rid of it. Such a relaxed car. It’s a pleasure to drive these cars every day. EDIT: The Tesla also has a con that I thought of later. And that is: You will always get attention from people when you own a Tesla. ,Positive or negative. In my environment (high school), that is mostly negative. Let me explain why: A Tesla is an expensive car. That’s a fact, and you can’t change that. But owning and having this expensive car, gives people an “image” of you. Everyone in my class knows that my father owns a Tesla, (because one of my friends told everyone) and all they can see is the price tag of this car and then assume that we’re rich. They don’t know any better. In some situations, this is very awkward. When the teacher is discussing something about money or expensive things, people always look at me. I find that very annoying and also kind of inappropriate. My father owning this car led to me being known as the rich kid in my school, and I hate it personally. I wouldn’t want to fully blame it on my dad having this car, but it did surely contribute to the fact that I am now known as the rich kid.
As a Model 3 reservation holder, I can tell you why I would not buy a Bolt today. I do not care all that much about Tesla’s image (honestly, I think it’s somewhat overrated, just like Apple but less so); I would easily pick Bolt over Tesla if it had the right features at a lower price point. However: First, the supercharger network is key. If I just wanted a car for local trips, I could buy a Leaf for half the price of a Bolt. If I want to be able to drive from San Diego to, say, Grand Canyon, I can (in theory) do that in a Model 3 by a number of routes (there are several superchargers along the way). In a Bolt, it would involve a lot of hassle, including a detour to Vegas and a multi-hour recharge stop at a level 2 charger on a university campus in Flagstaff, and I would not be able to get to Dallas at all without multiple stops at third-party low current chargers. (Conversely, if Tesla fails to keep its charger network up to the task, that would strongly discourage me from buying a Tesla at all.) Second, the autopilot. Model 3 comes with all hardware for semi-autonomous driving and a promise of full automation in future. Bolt (as far as I can tell) does not even have adaptive cruise control. Seriously, WTF? My 4-year-old Subaru has adaptive cruise control. Bolt has “Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking”, as an option in the Premier trim, and a few other alerts/indicators: GM is only confident enough about Bolt’s ability to recognize the environment to trigger automatic braking when you’re attempting to mow down a pedestrian at 15 mph, but it won’t do dare to do much more than beep at you otherwise.
As an experiment, for a few hours I observed everything I used and noted things that weren't widely available 10 years ago. I also noted any infrastructure I knew to be associated with each thing. Here are the things I used: GE smart light switch, using ,Z-Wave,, which was invented by the startup Zensys. Google Home, Amazon Echo (I have both) Philips air fryer Google Pixel Android phone, which includes innovations like Night Sight. The LTE radios were created by big companies. Quora (startup), which uses AWS on the back end Google Music, because I work there, but really the startup Spotify created this category of product Subaru adaptive cruise control (developed in house, as far as I can tell) Nest Cams, which were originally the startup Dropcam I also took a look at the most used apps on my phone that are new and innovative. There were only two not already mentioned: Google Photos image recognition and automated collages and videos Signal encrypted messaging (nonprofit) In total, there are 5 products by startups and 9 products by 5 big companies. So at least in my life, the question’s premise is false.
A high-end car today may have nearly a 100 million lines of code — ,according to this article,, 14 times more than a Boeing 787 Dreamliner (7 million) — spread across 100 or more separate microcontrollers. Even a mainstream auto has probably 50 microcontrollers and 10 million lines of code. At CES 2016, ,Ford announced, they have 150 million lines of code in their latest version of the F150. Those numbers, particularly for automobiles and trucks, include not just the auto-pilot features, but all the systems in the car such as engine control and entertainment centers. I’m not sure what’s all included in the 787 numbers. But still. Airplanes have had ,autopilots ,for many years. They are designed to keep the plane level, using an ,inertial guidance system,, and on course, based on the desired heading and either signals from the ground (in the past using ,LORAN-C,, now using satellite navigation such as ,GPS,). But they don’t have to worry about other vehicles or other obstacles directly ahead, behind, or beside them. Automobile ,autonomous driving systems, are actually more complex. They range from ,adaptive cruise control,, to ,lane-keeping assist,, all the way up to completely self-driving vehicles, such as ,Waymo self-driving taxis,, currently being tested in my area (near Phoenix, AZ). Autonomous vehicles use a combination of ,lidar,, radar, and cameras to make their way among traffic, and GPS for navigation. A year ago we bought a Subaru Impreza which has three separate LCD screens for the driver. It also has a system called ,Eyesight, which uses two cameras located on either side of the front mirror, and can pick up lane markings so that if I should start to wander outside of a lane, it will actually steer itself back into the middle. Plus it has front and rear collision avoidance systems, and adaptive cruise control (follows the car in front of me). So there is a lot of image processing going on here.
The driverless car of Google is an epitome of what machine learning can do. I have figured out the working of the car by studying the patent filing of Google which I would love to let you know by providing you an abridged detail of its various units . I’ll provide some external relevant links for further exploration at some places. Moreover, I would be discussing only the non-obvious parts of the car. By non-obvious I mean the parts/units that are not commonly seen in other cars. Thus, we will be focusing on the technical aspects in simple language. Just in case, you would like to explore the market side of the autonomous vehicles, consider going through this guide: ,Market and Research Trend in Autonomous Vehicles So here we go. The car has following non obvious units/parts/features 1. The Obstacle detection Unit 2. The data stored in its computer 3. Its display unit 4. Various Sensors (excluding obstacle detectors) The Obstacle detection Unit The car has different units that supply the data to the car computer to make a driving strategy. The obstacle detection unit, for example, consists of Radar, Sonar, Cameras and a Laser. These equipments help the car computer to have a situational awareness. That is to say, this unit is kind of eye of the driverless car computer that let it view the outside world. The ,laser, is mounted on roof of the car that measures the distance between the car and other objects on road by rotating on its axis. The ,radars ,are installed at front and back side of the car and on the sides of the bumper for the adaptive cruise control. Different types of ,cameras, are installed at various locations, separated from each other by a small distance. Sonar ,will also be used for adaptive cruise control Now you may be wondering that why the hell multiple sensors are used for doing one task i.e. to calculate the distance of other objects on road. Radar, Sonar, Cameras and Laser, all are calculating the distance of the objects. For that I would request you to check the provide link. You will also know the range of various detectors from the post itself. - ,Google Driverless Car- The Obstacle Detection Unit Now if you have explored the link then you know why multiple sensors are there. Apart from that, the Laser detects the snow/rain fall on the road by calculating the intensity of light and tweaks the driving strategy accordingly. There are other uses also. The Data Another non-obvious thing that Google’s Driverless Car carries under its hood is the data. The data consist of Control instructions – it includes the driving strategy for autonomous mode Maps, Sizes and shapes of various vehicles, how to differentiate between them and their behaviour on road. The meaning of various road signs, traffic lights and the like User information – whom to let the car drive and whom to avoid Please check these links to read in detail about the data that car utilizes ,1. ,Google Driverless Car - Data Stored in The Car Memory, ,2. ,Google Driverless Car - Under the Hood of the Car, ,The Display Unit of the Car Computer There will be two display screens installed in the car dashboard, one at middle and one just right behind the steering. Have a look at the image for clarifications. A status bar at dashboard displays whether computer is driving or human is driving. It displays letter ,“D”, to indicate that car’s ,driver is controlling,the car, letter ,“R”, when the, computer says that it is ready to drive, and displays ,“Cruise”, on status bar ,when the driving is controlled by the computer,. The screen that is right behind the steering displays road and traffic information in real time. Another display at centre displays music player, map and other information. Other Sensors Apart from the obstacle detection sensors that are sensing what is going on outside, there will be sensors for sensing what is going on inside. Pressure sensors will be installed on steering, brake paddle and the accelerator to know whether the driver is driving or has been slept. Depth cameras will be there inside the car to know the same. Apart from that, the cameras will be used to provide gesture recognition also. For example, to move the windows up/down you have to wave your hand in up/down direction. Similarly, by performing a rotating gesture in front of the AC, the temperature can be adjusted. In same fashion, gesture controls are there for controlling music player, wipers and the like. An Overview The sensors (obstacle detector as well as other) sense what is going on outside and what is happening inside the car and send this information to the car computer. The car computer checks its data to draw inferences from the supplied information and makes a driving strategy in real time. For example, the obstacle detectors supplies the data of what is at what distance from the car and the sensors that are inside the car supply information like whether the driver is sleeping/awake or he has his hands on the steering or not, whether he is applying enough pressure on the brake/accelerator paddle and the like. After combining all these information, a driving strategy is made. If you want to get down to the more details, I would suggest you to go through this link and read all the posts one by one. ,Driverless Car Archives - What A Future!!
For the first ~500 miles during the break-in period of a new car When carrying heavy or odd shaped cargo, particularly on the roof, since the handling of the car may change When towing For camera based adaptive cruise systems, when conditions can possibly result in bad images (sunlight normal to windshield, fog/condensation on inside or outside, badly marked roads). The system may shut down and (hopefully) revert to normal cruise, so you shouldn't be caught unaware. But cruise is great for driving down I-5 in California where it is a straight line for 230 miles
A definite NO. It is recommended not to tamper with the Factory fitted OEM settings of Maruti Suzuki Ciaz (or any other car brand) with after - market products like Cruise Control as it might not adapt to the system and may possibly fail anytime. Imagine, cruise - control malfunction when you are speeding up on a highway. It can be blood curdling. You can possibly risk a bit with a sophisticated rear view mirror with Dash Cam as an accessory or an extra set of high beam halogens, car power window winder kits, parking sensors with back up camera as the alterations / damage can be very minimal. Never even attempt to think about critical things in a car like Cruise Control, Ignition key, LPG gas kit conversion etc After all, a car is built all mechanical and electronics. In fact, I use cruise control and am so conscious after a few hundred kilometres of driving alone on an empty highway, I suddenly get a spine-chill and safely press the brake pedal to slow down just to reassure myself that all is well. ,We need to be alert and aware we are driving a car, at all times when we on the steering wheel. Cruise control as a factory fitted OEM is good, but at times, it does takes off our attention momentarily leading to some unexpected fatalities. Loss of control of vehicle happens when a 2 wheeler or a stray cow accidentally running haphazard into the main highway from a merging lane which we fail to notice from a distance. In unfamiliar terrain, cruise control set at say 120 kmpl may lead to instability of car and lose balance particularly in blind corners in spite of last minute unexpected braking. In the case of wet roads, things can turn even worse with improper tyre pressure to add to our woes. Snow, sand storms, flash floods, boulders rolling down from mountains, blinding rains on long expressways can lead to crashing onto slow / stationery car queues due to poor visibility when ,cruise control is on. Cruise control can also lead to driver fatigue over a period of time on a long expressway with no life around. They tend to take off one hand from the steering wheel and also prop up one of their legs on the dashboard just to stretch out a bit. This is dangerous. It is best the driver and co-driver refrain from sitting unusually and removing their seat belts while the car is on the move. Be Alert. Drive safe. Your family is more important than the pleasure of an after - market cruise control. Picture source : Google Images
If by automatic system you mean the adaptive cruise control, then yes. The dash will actually display images of the vehicles around the front of the car. There are images for cars, trucks and motorcycles. These images are derived from signals received from the radar at the front of the car.
a few that come to my mind are: Real time traffic management and signalling using video detection Vision systems to avoid accidents by detecting obstacles and providing adaptive cruise control and driver assistance such as active braking. Some companies are also working on face-recognition for In-car tech safety.
A high-end car today may have ,nearly 100 million lines of code, — several times more than a Boeing 787 Dreamliner — spread across 100 or more separate microcontrollers. Even a mainstream auto has probably 50 microcontrollers and 10 million lines of code. Some of these processors may be ARM-based with large memories, for example controlling the media center (what used to be the radio) and navigation, and possibly running Linux; while there are many more that are simple 8-bit devices with dedicated tasks such as operating the windshield washers or power windows, and not running an operating system at all. We just bought a new Subaru Impreza which has three separate LCD screens for the driver. It also has a system called ,Eyesight, which uses two cameras located on either side of the front mirror, and can pick up lane markings so that if I should start to wander outside of a lane, it will actually steer itself back into the middle. Plus it has front and rear collision avoidance systems, and adaptive cruise control (follows the car in front of me). So there is a lot of image processing going on here. In addition to cameras, some vehicles also use LIDAR (,Light Detection and Ranging,). Plus many cars are now connected to the Internet, so you would have wireless capabilities as well. And of course networking to tie all of this together. A common networking scheme using in autos is the CAN (,controller area network,) bus. Autonomous vehicles, which are already on the road, have a lot more of the above, plus mapping functions and probably voice recognition/response. This is all in addition to the computers that have been in cars for some time now to ,control engine-related functions, — timing, fuel mixture, etc.
