I guess we have to determine why the sensors didn't see this very large object, autopilot on or off, because I assume "Intelligent Emergency Braking" (Nissan's name for it) is active whether the autopilot is on or off. I don't know if the driver is telling the truth about the autopilot being on. I just read the https://forums.tesla.com/forum/forums/automatic-emergency-braking-autopilot-turned discussion. One guy in there thinks the Automatic Emergency Braking feature in the Tesla only slows the car by delta 25 mph! If true, that would explain why the car did NOT look like it hit at 65 mph. It does indeed look more like a 40 mph hit, starting to maybe make sense now.
