Tesla Model S Autopilot Self-Driving Technology

The Autopilot system is controlled by 12 ultrasonic sensors and eight surround-view cameras that give a 360-degree view of the vehicle with up to 250 meters of range and detect objects. Additionally, a radar that faces forward provides more information regarding weather, conditions and traffic ahead of the vehicle. The new onboard computer controlling the Autopilot system provides 40 times more power than previous generations, giving Tesla drivers access to the most high-tech and innovative self-driving technology available!
