This video, posted to YouTube over the weekend, shows what happens when a Tesla Model X falcon door bumps into an object while opening.

From the video, you'll see that the door simply stops when it hits an object.

This is not what we expected to see.

First off, we had assumed the sensors would detect the object and stop the door prior to contact. Secondly, it seems the door doesn't retract upon hitting he object, but rather it stays in contact with what has been struck by the door.

This operation is exactly the opposite of what we had expected to see. Door hits object, which shouldn't happen. Then it stays in contact with object, which doesn't seem right either.

Are you surprised by the operation of the Falcon Door as seen in this video?
