AAA measured three level 2 vehicles including model 3 and found several safety problems

In this test 3 In cars , Can detect the slow dummy vehicle traveling in the same direction as the test vehicle . In each test ( Each car has five runs ), Test the vehicle and apply the brake , And consistent with the speed of the dummy , To avoid impact . Again , All test vehicles can detect simulated cyclists driving in the same direction , And slow down to prevent impact .

When the dummy vehicle is placed in the same lane , To simulate a frontal collision caused by a damaged or distracted driver , The test vehicle will impact it every time . The speeds of the test vehicle and the simulated incoming vehicle are 25 miles / Hours and 15 miles / Hours -- Lower than what might happen in the real world .

Hyundai and Subaru didn't try to brake , But hit the target without reducing the speed . Tesla applied the brakes in every test , But still managed to 2.3 miles / The average speed per hour hit the dummy vehicle .

what's more , The Subaru Forester failed to detect the simulated cyclist crossing the road in front of it . In this test , Both Tesla and Hyundai can brake to avoid impact . Greg, director of automotive engineering at the American Automobile Association - Bronnon (Greg Brannon) say , Their tests show that , Unstable performance is normal , Not the exception .

The AA's advice to carmakers is simple : Before trying to focus on the future , Listen to the canceller and improve the currently available system .Brannon Add :“ If consumers don't believe now , You can't sell them the future ”.
