Tesla has dropped the radar sensors from its semi-autonomous driving systems in model 3 and Model Y since May this year in USA.

Would you dare to use the adaptive cruiser control in one of the models 3 or Y on a rainy day, let alone the autopilot? Most automakers and self-driving vehicle companies use three types of sensors: Cameras, radar and lidar. How do you think that Tesla has reasoned about their change? Are they on to something that others have missed?

New innovations and solutions are rapidly launched to the market by the automotive industry. But regardless of new technologies, cost driving activities or how you solve a technical issue, it must be safe!
