According to news on October 17, a recent traffic accident caused by an "assisted driving" system has attracted wide attention from netizens. In the accident, a large truck on the right front side of the Leading Ideal ONE merged with the left side of the vehicle collided with body A. The column was severely bent and the engine was damaged, but the airbag in the car was not ejected in time, resulting in increased injuries to the four passengers. The severe cases have been judged to be disfigured.
On October 15th, Ideal Automobile officially explained the rear-end collision of Qingdao ONE on September 22.
In the accident, the "assisted driving" of Leading Ideal ONE was turned on, but the large truck that was changing lanes to the left was not recognized, so that it did not decelerate or warn in time. This "defect" was considered by the owner as the main source of the accident.
In addition, in the photo, we can see that the rear protective device of the truck does not play its due role-preventing the rear truck from drilling into the bottom of the truck. The energy-absorbing structure of this Leading Ideal ONE was obviously damaged, and the A-pillar was severely bent backward, and the roof was compressed into the head space of the passenger. It is understood that the co-pilot passenger was also the most injured person in the accident.
Although the A-pillar was almost broken, when the Leading Ideal ONE occurred with a truck at 120Km/h, relative to 30Km/h, the airbag in the car did not explode, which is embarrassing.
The explanation given by the ideal car is: the airbag sensor does not detect enough deceleration; ideally, no car model will install the airbag sensor on the A-pillar.
In the response, ideally use the accident diagram to illustrate: Tesla, NIO, Porsche (Cayenne), Volvo (VC60), Audi and other models are also vulnerable to A-pillar accidents.
Regarding assisted driving, the ideal emphasizes: L2 assisted driving is still based on the driver to control the vehicle, and it cannot completely replace the driver in making decisions.
Perhaps, through the Leading Ideal ONE accident, the public will have a better understanding of the limitations of the "L2, L2.5" autopilot system promoted by the manufacturer. At least for now-before more reliable computing power and sensor technology are applied to family cars, any so-called consumer-level "autonomous driving" is based on exaggerated propaganda for high-end assisted driving.
