"...The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety tested five advanced driver assistance systems and reported that the Tesla Model 3 experienced the fewest incidents of crossing over a lane line, touching a lane line, or disengaging. The 2018 Model 3 also stayed within its lane more often than the four other vehicles in the test: 2017 BMW 5 series with "Drive Assistant Plus", 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class with "Drive Pilot", 2018 Volvo S90 with "Pilot Assist", and a 2016 Tesla Model S running an older version of Autopilot.

The results appear in the IIHS special issue on autonomous vehicles.

Across a set of 36 tests run on both hills and curves, the Model 3 drove outside of its lane only once, while the E-Class drove outside of its lane 12 times, the Model S 14 times, the S90 18 times, and the 5 series 33 times...."

I've posted numerous head-to-head comparisons over the years that showed that TSLA's Autopilot beat all the top companies' best driver assist technologies despite coming to the party waaaay late, at least a decade since the incumbents had been dinking along with the technology and putting it into only their top luxury trims.

Now we finally have a 3rd party testing several of the top driver assist technologies including TSLA's Autopilot.

And the M3 crushes the competition.

No surprise.

At all.

And this is a brief interlude as TSLA continues to ramp up towards full autonomy - and as I've said the road map for TSLA is a continuous evolution via machine learning and that will get you a robust technology at the end of the road - much faster and more robust that GOOG's plan to test only in sunny dry southwestern US and in virtual simulations. HA - good luck with that.

There's just so much good stuff going on with TSLA - I pity dem shorts! I pity dem foools!
