Collision avoidance system and Euro Ncap

When will it be avilable in the S?

All premium sedans on the market has something similar as standard or an optiion (Adaptive Cruise Control etc.)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collision_avoidance_system

Soon to be an standard in all cars sold in Europe .

I have been told that the S will have wiring prepared for this (?)

And when When the S be tested by Euro Ncap?

I didn't get the chance to ask Elon personaly when he came to Norway. (But he really answered a lot of questions from the invited audience - impressing)

Nothing is more important then Safety
That's for sure, as soon as I purchased My Tesla Model S
I started looking online for the best solution, I found a collision avoidance system by "Mobileye" to have the most options, it also was installed in my Tesla without the need for any screws or medaling with the dashboard. I have had it for a few months now, very reliable and all I can say is it already paid off for me, I wont say I am a bad driver cause I'm not, but on a few occasions I came too close for comfort....

Thanks for the Mobileye heads up (Pun intended). I didn't know it existed. Can I ask what you paid for it and about the installation process? Do you have a dashboard warning system as shown on their website?

Mobileeye told me they make the system for ford, Volvo and gm but they do not integrate aftermarket systems with breaks. To much liability. So the manufacturer needs to do this.

Their system looks very interesting but I have yet to take a test drive with one. My concern is that it might get annoying at some point like radar detector before GPS integration.

I love the option of Google Driverless Car as it can avoid accidents in any conditions day, night, rain, snow, fog, pedestrian, animals...

There are a few constraints: I can't afford the cost of about $300,000 to equip my Model S for Driverless Car feature. Those equipments look montrously big and occupy too much space. How can Model S supply enough energy for driverless feature?

This ad is for brake assist and not an anti collision system, but they often go hand in hand.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emergency_brake_assist

I don't want an anti-collision system in my vehicle. I like having control of my car. If they put a system like this in I hope they have a way to turn it off.

I have been reading about the defects Nissan's anti-collision systems. From my understanding there is no way to turn the anti-collision systems off in their cars. I will be staying away from any manufacturer that does this.

@I-Like-Electric

It's an option.

1) You need to pay extra for it. If you don't want it, don't pay for it.

2) If you accidentally paid dearly for it, you can turn it off.

"A 2012 Institute survey of owners of Volvo vehicles with crash avoidance technologies found that, despite some annoyance, the majority of drivers left the systems turned on most of the time, felt the systems made them safer drivers and would want them in their next vehicle."

Cruise control should never be engaged in heavy traffic. Period stop.

Are tesla owners happy with mobileye?
Cost to install?

@DTsea why not?

Have you used a car with a good adaptive cruise control? The system in my Infiniti works very well, slowing the car as traffic slows, speeding up when needed. I can adjust the gap between cars. Works well in heavy freeway traffic when speeds are varying

I remember when I fall asleep in my car. It was horrible. I had finished a survival military training week. I was exhausted. I was home relaxing and my girlfriend asked me to drive to her to hangout… well I was tired but people that have been in the military will agree, you don’t turn down such a request heheh.
Anyway, coming back I just couldn’t keep my eyes open, I tried everything: music, open windows, drinking water… I was fighting to stay awake… and then I saw my town exit board saying “1500m to exit” and I relaxed a bit…. Boom!! Let’s say I’m happy to be able to tell the story.
Now, if I’m tired or someone of my family is tired the car stays parked… No driving when tired period!
I hope those systems don’t “relax” the driver too much, or you’ll end up with a tons of cars driving themselves until stopping on the side of the road…

I woke up in the passenger seat to a field of green before me in the early mist of sunrise. My Brother was slumbering peacefully in the driver's seat, as my car was passing over the median toward oncoming traffic. I yelled his name, he awoke, quickly assessed the situation, and corrected the course of the vehicle into our own lanes.

Naturally, he said he was 'fine' and could go on. I insisted that he pull over at the next exit. I drove the rest of the way to my Grandparents farm, well rested, and very alert.

I'm glad to be able to tell that story.

On my epic youthful cross-country trip on a Kawasaki 175 two-cycle back in the late '60s, I was taking the bypass around Regina -- about 45 miles per side of a square, ruler-straight on dead-flat prairie. Other traffic at about 1 car per 5 minutes.

I can attest that road hypnosis is possible on a 'cycle. As my speed crept up into the 80s and location on the road began to vary, I managed with intense effort to release the accelerator grip, and coasted to the shoulder. I felt as though I had cheated death!

Any updates on driverless functionality?
