Whether you’re a Tesla fan or not, you have to admit that their autopilot system is the best in the world. The real question remains though, is that system good enough, or will it ever be good enough, to safely pilot a car without the need for driver input. Many say no, but this fully autonomous future certainly seems to be the end goal for many automotive manufacturers today.
For the naysayers and the believers alike, you might wonder just what a computer sees when it’s piloting a car. The simple truth of the matter is that it sees a lot more than humans can in real time. Take a look at what Tesla’s autopilot systems see while traveling through the streets of Paris in the video below. The video is simply raw footage, and it’s quite long, so feel free to skip around to get a glimpse at the present reality of autonomous tech.
