Tesla is simply fascinating and will become a bigger company than Apple in 10 years. There is no doubt about that. They have a real engineering marvel that will make that market success possible.
Tesla’s super-sensory autopilot system might be able to predict a collision and react faster than a human driver, a new dash-cam video suggests, using radar technology that allows it to see what we cannot.

The video, first reported by tech site Electrek, shows a highway in the Netherlands stretching before a moving Tesla. Eight seconds in, a rapid beeping sound is followed by a car rear-ending an SUV, which then flips over on impact.
CNBC reports that the company has confirmed that that the sound heard in the video, which was shared on Twitter more than a thousand times, was in fact the vehicle’s Forward Collision Warning.
What do you call anti-predictive collision? That is reality.
