Tesla Longitudinal Control (Accel / Braking)
Longitudinal control is an ongoing effort. These cars lack electronic pedal control and radar.
We are investigating both hardware and software alternatives for longitudinal control.
|Distance detection technique||Advantage||Disadvantage|
|Software - Use the EON's computer vision||No additional cost||Experimental and less precise than radar|
|Hardware - Install a radar unit||High accuracy||Expensive ($x00)|
|Speed control technique||Advantage||Disadvantage|
|Software - Adjust the cruise control speed||No additional cost||Weak braking, jerky acceleration|
|Hardware - Install electrically controllable pedals||Full braking and smooth acceleration||Expensive ($x00)|
|Hardware - Install a comma.ai Pedal proxy||smooth acceleration, cheap ($x0)||Experimental, not appropriate for brakes.|
