New online game tests human reaction time versus Tesla's Autobrake system
Can a human react faster than Tesla's Autobrake system? A new game by Select Car Leasing challenges players to see if they can react to obstacles in the road that require braking quicker than Tesla's Autobrake technology.
According to Select Car Leasing, Tesla has never released the exact reaction time of its automatic emergency braking (AEB) system. To find out what time to use, the company selected 10 viral clips of the AEB system in action, slowed them down, and analyzed the reaction time frame by Fram. The average reaction time was 0.3 seconds, a time that's faster than a sky diver fall 40 meters.
Human perception time varies greatly depending on a number of factors like age, eyesight, conditions, and speed.
Tesla isn't the only company to have installed automatic emergency braking in its vehicles. The technology, which has been proven to save live and prevent accidents, is quickly becoming a standard offering across a number of makes and models by companies including Nissan and Toyota.
