Collected the new car and gave it an appropriate name. And the toys on it are great. Heated seats and steering wheel, HUD, wireless phone charging, self parking, remote start, adaptive cruise control, and a 10 speaker 640 watt Bang & Olufsen stereo. #middleaged
Connectivity in general is leading up for when cars become autonomous and people spend more time in cars as their office and the such like. Lane departure could be used in times when it is foggy. Again, technology is being added to vehicles in preperation for autonomous vehicles.
See your point but not convinced. As someone who has been driving for 30 years+ and only 3 points (expired) to my name, I didn't need lane departure, auto-braking or adaptive cruise control then, I don't need it now. I enjoy driving, I don't want the car to do it for me #luddite
what's a popular european electric car with autopilot i should look into
Tesla autopilot is honestly just a marketing gimmick for a name look for advanced/adaptive cruise control it does just about the same thing. And is less likely to cause an accident or accident fall asleep because you still have to interact :)
#IveGrownAccustomedTo Our features including adaptive cruise control, collision mitigation, and heated steering wheels to name a few. #YYJ
I just tried to drive. Nope, still can't. Even with the seat all the way back, my knee still bends too far (hurts); Even heavily leaning on Adaptive Cruise Control and left foot breaking, it's still super uncomfortable. Dammit. Stupid knee. Stupid, broken body. This sucks.
my bff's name is Adaptive Cruise Control
Tesla is certainly the company most “pushing” self-driving technology, but other car companies have self-driving features under other names, for example Nissan has “Pro Pilot,” Cadillac has “Super Cruise,” and Audi has “Jam Pilot.” Car brands that offer lane centering and adaptive cruise control on some models include: Acura Audi BMW Cadillac Ford Genesis Honda Hyundai Infiniti Jaguar Kia Land Rover Lexus Lincoln Maserati Mercedes Nissan Porsche Tesla (all models) Toyota I would argue that none of these approach the functionality of the current Tesla Full Self-Driving capability.

This has nothing to do with being a car mechanic but it still makes me burst out laughing to this day. One day, on my way to work I got cut off in a merge lane so I had to come to a complete stop; I did it gently and so there were no tire marks of me braking on the road. About 10 seconds later a woman hit my rear end. I quickly jumped out of my car (which its whole back was severely damaged down the the exhaust now hitting the ground) to see if she is okay. She hopped out of her car and straight away started yelling “why did you do that?!?”; confused I told her I didn’t have much of an option than to stop as three cars cut me off so if I continued to merge I would have hit them. She continued her pointless tirade of “well you shouldn’t have done that”. Now in Victoria, Australia, the police have to be called when damages exceed $1000 so when they showed up I explained to one lovely woman police officer as the male dealt with her. I overheard her telling him she bought the car (a Volkswagen) for all its safety features so I must have done something because her car automatically slows down for her. I was quite confused the rest of the day wondering if she thinks she has a self-driving car until I realised the feature she is talking about is adaptive cruise control, whatever you name it, only works when you are in cruise control, which considering we had just taken off from lights and going 60km/h I highly doubt she had on. 🤦♂️ Long story short, she was a pretty girl and the male cop tried to find anything he could fault me on as his superior rolled her eyes knowing it was entirely this woman’s fault for not watching the road (likely on her phone). Still find it funny though that she thought her car was something out of Back to the Future so she didn’t need to look at what was going on around her 😂
Many are working on similar systems, but call it by less assuming names. The current Tesla “Advanced Autopilot” is a combination of Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane-Keep, Collision Avoidance/Emergency Braking, and Lane Change by other names. Many cars feature Adaptive Cruise Control and Collision Avoidance/Emergency Braking. You see the advertisements for these features all the time from Nissan, Toyota, and others. Less offer Lane-Keep and Lane Change, but it continues to come. Keep in mind that Tesla currently features these “autopilot” features, the self-driving feature is not approved an you can’t get it on any car as a consumer.
There is a 2000 paper by Preslt et al. named The BMW Active Cruise Control ACC http://papers.sae.org/2000-01-0344/ that might help. I am not sure though about how relevant it is in regard to the current verison.
Would you hire a guy that mops hot tar on roofs to rewire the electrical system in your house? I wouldn’t. Speaking as a former technician and service manager I can answer this. Fixed glass replacement is a specialized job that requires different skills than a technician and different tools than a tech owns. The potential downside of screwing up the install are high. Problems like a broken new windshield, wind leaks, water leaks to name 3. The upside is the dealer makes a few more $ ASSUMING nothing goes wrong. But one aweshit wipes out a whole bunch of successful installations. As far as the recalibration goes, my shop would handle that after the glass is installed.
These features are absolutely incredible: BMW Brake Drying You know when it's pouring cats and dogs, the most common advice you hear is not to brake too hard or your car might skid? Well, BMW is ahead of the curve on that one. Simply put, ,Brake Drying ,dries your brakes while you are driving. Activated by your windshield wipers, this new BMW system intermittently moves the brake pads close to the rotors to keep them dry and improve your stopping power in wet weather conditions - in my opinion, this should be a must have in any car because it is a brilliant safety precaution and has the potential to save lives. 2. ,Honda Lane-watch Again, another innovative safety feature - Honda has placed a camera on the sideview mirror to help drivers change lanes. Instead of looking in the sideview mirror and glancing over your shoulder (problems because of the infamous blind-spot) you simply turn on your indicator (which activates the camera) and look at your center screen. The camera shows the entire lane next to you, showing you not only what's in your blind-spot, but also offering guidelines detailing exactly how far you are from other vehicles. Honda Lane-watch ,is an amazing system, and I wish all cars offered it. 3. ,Mercedes-Benz AIRSCARF Don't you just hate it when you're driving in your convertible and you want to put the top down but it's too cold to do so? It's a hard-knock life, but Mercedes has found a way to make it easier. This life-saving system is called ,AIRSCARF,, and it is a built-in heating system that sends warm air - not from the dashboard but rather from the seats' headrest - onto your neck, hence an air-scarf (it's a really catchy name honestly I'll give them that). The result is that you can stay warmer than usual when cruising around in your Mercedes convertible and can put the top down on a cold day. Game-changing isn't it? 4. ,Nissan Easy-Fill Tire Alert Out of all the systems on this list, this is the one that you will probably use the least. ,Nissan Easy-Fill Tire Alert ,pretty much takes all the guesswork out of filling your tires. When you fill up your tires, generally it involves filling it up, checking if it's at the right pressure, filling up some more, - oops too much - taking air back out and so on until your tires are full. Sure, it's only about once every few months that you fill up your tires, but Nissan has your back. With this system, this tedious exercise is non-existent. You simply fill up your tires until the horn honks and the headlights light up, indicating the right pressure of air. While it is a novel concept, Nissan customers can rest easy knowing that they'll be out of the gas station about 27 seconds quicker than their Honda rivals. 5. ,Subaru-Eyesight Now this, this is an invention that I would most definetely buy a Subaru for. The ,Subaru-Eyesight, offers a wide range of modern features, such as adaptive cruise control, lane-departure warning, a blind spot monitoring system and rear cross traffic alert. Yes that's all fine and dandy, but that's not the real reason I would get a Subaru. The ,Subaru-Eyesight ,basically has a feature that switches on when the car isn't moving, and alerts you when cars around you start to move. When is this useful? Picture this. You come to a full stop at a red light. You are the first one in line. Your phone beeps as a text message comes in. You pick it up (Disclaimer: I don't text and drive…maybe) and read the message you received. All of a sudden, the guy behind you is honking like the world is about to come to an end because Godzilla is coming behind him and he doesn't want to die and you look up from your phone - startled as fu*k - and you realize that he's honking because the light turned green a second ago and then you become angry as f- The ,Subaru-Eyesight ,beeps when the cars next to you begin moving because the light turned green so you can look up from your phone and start driving again. Get it. 6. ,Volvo Drowsiness Detection This is another potential life-saving feature - this time designed by Volvo. As you can probably see from the picture, this system alerts the driver when he or she seems to be drowsy and needs to rest before continuing to drive. But how does it do it? Well, ,Volvo Drowsiness Detection ,features a rear facing camera that scans the driver and monitors eye and head movement to see if you're too drowsy to be driving. Chances are that at that point, you're already aware that you are too sleepy to be driving, but it definitely helps to have an outside source confirm it, and this comes in definite handy if you're driving alone. These are some absolutely incredible inventions, and while some may be over the top (read: AIRSCARF), many of these are dire safety features that should be included in all vehicles. . . . .

Land Rover (original Range Rover, Range Rover sport, Range Rover Velar) Jaguar (f-pace, xj) High-end Germans (above 1.2 crore rs.) Lamborghini Urus to name a few…… Not many car manufacturers are interested in introducing radar-based safety features in indian cars.
Adaptive cruise control as the name suggests it adapts to different speed and doesn't always run at the set speed It uses various parameters like distance of the vehicle running up front ,relative speed of the vehicle, speed limit of the road, etc. If you have set the cruise speed to 60kph and the car at front is travelling at 50kph then you will be automatically slowed down to 50kph and it won't increase the speed unless you change the lane or the car at front acclerates. And if your car is travelling at 60kph and suddenly the car at front slows down or an another car unexpectedly changes in your lane, this would reduce your speed as necessary. This is achived with Laser and Radar. Most modern cars have this facility for safety purpose. Mercedes uses cameras to detect speed limit sign board along the highways to limit the car’s cruising speed to the mentioned speed limit.
Autopilot is another name for cruise control. Originally, it was identical to standard cruise control. These days, it’s a name for adaptive cruise control, usually with automatic lane centering. Currently Tesla is the only automaker marketing a driver assist system with that name, and it has those features, plus automatic lane changes, as well as the a few other features.
After saving for almost ten years, I finally got my ModelX a year ago. Her name is Joule. It is the BEST car I’ve ever had. That said, there was a learning curve and the only constant is change. You have to be flexible. It is cutting edge technology that is constantly being updated and improved and there are little bugs sometimes. Running on electric only can be nerve wracking but you learn to plan and Superchargers are common enough you can go almost anywhere in the US. I have done several road trips and although you have to plan a few extra hours to charge, it really tends to work out well because there is almost almost always good shopping/food walking distance from the Superchargers. The Supercharger infrastructure is constantly improving. Most TESLA owners I have met are genuinely nice people who love their cars, technology, and the Earth. The car is MOST efficient when driven responsibly (reasonable speed, turn radius, using regenerative braking vs. the brake pedal, accelerating normally from a stop). I have however, had the pleasure of opening her up on a NASCAR track and it was both exhilarating and terrifying. The raw power of 100% torque is simply incredible. The stability of the low center of gravity due to the battery pack in the chassis made it hug the curves very well. I do have the autopilot hardware and programming. Many people mistakenly think the car drives itself. This is NOT true (although the goal is to get there). It basically has adaptive cruise control (holds the lane and adjusts speed with traffic). This makes driving in traffic or on long trips MUCH easier but you must remain diligent and pay attention as the technology is not yet perfected.
