Tesla and BMW to launch EMF-Rf Detection System in 2018
Posted On June 18, 2021
The carmaker said it will offer a fully integrated EMF radar detector in the new 2018 model year.
The new Tesla Model X crossover will come with the EMF detector, which will be mounted on the front bumper and rear wing mirrors.
The detector will be installed behind the passenger-side air bags and will include an onboard digital sensor that allows it to detect and identify EMF from vehicles.
The EMF detectors will be able to detect up to 0.5 microns (1,000 nanometers) in the air, which Tesla says will allow the system to help detect the presence of harmful substances in the environment.
The company will start selling the EMFs detector on the Tesla Roadster in 2018.
Tesla also announced the launch of its Autopilot Autopay program, which is a pilot program to test the safety of autonomous driving systems in the U.S. Tesla is offering the sensors and the Roadster to buyers of its new 2018 Model X and XE models.
The first batch of the Autopax sensors will be available in the fall of 2018, Tesla said.
Tesla will provide the new sensors in a special package for buyers of the 2018 Model 3 and X, which has a price tag of $35,000.
The Tesla Roadsters, which are priced at $60,000, will have an EMF sensor for the first time.
The 2018 Model Y will have a driver-assistance system with a sensor that can detect EMF in the cabin.
The vehicle will also feature a rear-facing camera, which the company said will provide drivers with real-time information on the road ahead.
Tesla said that it is working on a “more comprehensive suite of sensors” to be included in the 2018 models.
