Tesla Model 3: Collision Avoidance Assist

Tesla Model 3 2017-2022 Owner's Manual / Autopilot / Collision Avoidance Assist

The following collision avoidance features are designed to increase the safety of you and your passengers:

  • Forward Collision Warning - provides visual and audible warnings in situations when Model 3 detects that there is a high risk of a frontal collision
  • Automatic Emergency Braking - automatically applies braking to reduce the impact of a frontal collision
  • Obstacle-Aware Acceleration - reduces acceleration if Model 3 detects an object in its immediate driving path

Warning: Forward Collision Warning is for guidance purposes only and is not a substitute for attentive driving and sound judgment. Keep your eyes on the road when driving and never depend on Forward Collision Warning to warn you of a potential collision. Several factors can reduce or impair performance, causing either unnecessary, invalid, inaccurate, or missed warnings. Depending on Forward Collision Warning to warn you of a potential collision can result in serious injury or death.

Warning: Automatic Emergency Braking is not designed to prevent all collisions. In certain situations, it can minimize the impact of a frontal collision by attempting to reduce your driving speed. Depending on Automatic Emergency Braking to avoid a collision can result in serious injury or death.

Warning: Obstacle-Aware Acceleration is not designed to prevent a collision. In certain situations, it can minimize the impact of a collision. Depending on Obstacle-Aware Acceleration to avoid a collision can result in serious injury or death.

The forward looking camera(s) and the radar sensor are designed to determine the distance from a detected object traveling in front of Model 3. When a frontal collision is considered unavoidable,

 Obstacle-Aware Acceleration

Obstacle-Aware Acceleration is designed to reduce the impact of a collision by reducing motor torque if Model 3 detects an object in its driving path. For example, Model 3, while parked in front o
