Technically Tesla didn't "predict" anything. Its radar can detect 2 cars in front. That being said this is impressive as no other cars on the market can do this. Also this is with the gen 1 autopilot hardware, which Tesla already discontinued 2 months ago. Tesla is really years ahead of any other competitors who still have trouble putting Android Auto and Carplay into their lineups.

The funny thing is Tesla also have trouble putting anything as good as Android Auto and Carplay into their cars.

In the not-so-distant future we will look back and wonder how we let humans manually control these death machines - clogging roads, polluting the environment, and killing people. Fully automated control cannot come soon enough.

From Infiniti's own disclaimer: PFCW is intended to warn you before a collision occurs; it cannot prevent a collision and may not detect every vehicle or object. PFCW operation subject to speed & other limitations. Always drive safely.

You only need to put Android Auto or Carplay into the car when your own infotainment system suck (which is most automakers). If it is superior like Tesla's, there is no need.

Tesla is great, don't understand why there is so much resistance to autopilot cars right now, from both everyday people and government. I trust this as more reliable than people I see out there every day.

Also, how did that SUV get wrecked so bad from rear collision by a compact car? Crazy.

Those who are resisting, are the ones that can't cough up the money for one.
I'm not saying I have boat loads of money, but the Model 3, with available autopilot option is priced within my budget (Model S and X, is way too much at $100K).

That's the standard disclaimer, just like the ones Tesla used for its own autonomous emergency braking which can't brake it to a stop.

But that's the thing, Tesla's infotainment system is horrible.

I don't see the resistance, it's more of a don't overhype it to something more than it is.

Please don't make stuff up when you don't know what you'e talking about. Infiniti has had that tech for some time. This Tesla fanboyism gets tiresome, esp. when built up on lies and misinformation.
