Recently there was a video posted demonstrating pedestrian collision avoidance in the most recent 8.0 SW updates. Who knew, Tesla Autopilot has a human collision avoidance system There was a brief discussion on the forum about this. Basically with 8.0 and either TACC or AP the vehicle will initiate braking for a pedestrian. There may or may not be a visible pedestrian icon on the dash depending on the circumstances. What I didn't see in the video or in the discussion is whether pedestrian braking occurs without either TACC or AP engaged. So assuming that pedestrian braking only occurs under TACC/AP should we always be driving with at least TACC engaged at the lowest setting (18mph) even on roads unsuitable/not recommended for AP? This would be useful not only for pedestrian avoidance but for deer avoidance.
