Euro NCAP first checked the operation of autonomous control systems

The organization Euro NCAP has tested 10 different electronic assistants.

For the first time, Euro NCAP has conducted independent testing of integrated autonomous control systems offered by various brands. The Audi A6, the BMW 5 Series, the DS 7 Crossback, the Ford Focus, the Hyundai NEXO, the Mercedes-Benz C Class, the Nissan LEAF, the Tesla Model S, the Toyota Corolla and the Volvo V60 with adaptive cruise control and restraint systems. and electronic speed limiters.

For testing, Euro NCAP specialists have developed a number of situational scenarios. First, they checked the work of the adaptive cruise control, including its capabilities with a full stop and a sudden rearrangement of the vehicle in front. During the experiment, it turned out that DS and BMW electronic systems interfere least in the driving process. Audi, Ford, Hyundai, Mercedes, Toyota, Nissan and Volvo offer the best balance, while Tesla, by contrast, relies too much on electronics.

Also, none of the cars could not independently avoid the accident when imitating a sharp rebuild with exit or entry into the lane.

The second set of tests designed to assess the function of control of the number of rows of motion. The degree of assistance to the driver is determined during races with S-shaped turns at different speeds, when the system should not shut down or interfere with the driver. It is noted that during a detour of obstacles Tesla also relies excessively on the work of the assistance systems, while systems of other brands give the driver the opportunity to apply less effort to the steering wheel to perform the maneuver.

In addition, Euro NCAP experts noted that a number of presentation materials from BMW and Tesla give an erroneous idea of ​​the capabilities of such systems. So, the viewer can assume that the cars of these brands can move in a completely autonomous mode.
