Re: Auto-crash-pilot

It's less than 2s to impact from the stationary car coming into view by my stopwatch, and the nominal stopping time from 40mph with ABS is 2.0 seconds, so do the math; it's pretty much a guaranteed crash situation.

Actually stopping from 40 in 2 seconds only uses about 60 feet or roughly four car lengths which looks to be about what the Tesla has. My guess is that they staged it so that the Tesla would have just enough distance to stop if it starts immediately and in that respect it is right on the edge of being set up to fail.
