Recently, Tesla official news that in addition to the self-developed autopilot chip, Tesla will also launch a new ultrasonic radar and an enhanced version of the front radar. Officials say the new radar is close to twice the range and accuracy of the previous generation.
According to the official introduction, there are 12 ultrasonic radars on Tesla models, which are distributed in the first 6 and the rear. As a supplement to the body vision system, they are mainly responsible for detecting the precise distance of objects near the body. Tesla's new ultrasonic radar will not only improve detection range and accuracy, but also identify soft or hard objects. Therefore, the technology may be able to solve the problem that the current radar cannot accurately detect plastic obstacles on the road surface.
