Tesla

Founded by Elon Musk, Tesla Motors develops the Autopilot Level 2 autonomous driving system that uses a combination of cameras, radar, ultrasonic sensors and data to automatically steer down the highway, change lanes, and adjust speed in response to traffic.

Tesla Autopilot also offers digital control of motors, brakes, and steering to help drivers avoid avoid collisions from the front and sides, as well as preventing the car from wandering off the road. Your car can also scan for a parking space, alert you when one is available, and parallel park on command.

Tesla Autopilot relieves drivers of tedious and potentially dangerous aspects of road travel. While truly driverless cars are still a few years away, Tesla Autopilot functions like the systems that airplane pilots use when conditions are clear. The driver is still responsible for, and ultimately in control of, the car. What’s more, drivers always have intuitive access to the information the car is using to inform its actions.
