Will Tesla Model X Falcon Doors Pinch Objects? – Video
The trademark Falcon Wing doors on the Tesla Model X have garnered more attention than any other single component on the electric SUV.
The door, which operates automatically, have been both applauded and criticized for various reasons.
One concern is whether or not the sensor in the doors will prevent finger crushing. To test this out, YouTuber Like Tesla tested the doors as they closed on multiple different object.
“People have asked how the doors react to obstructions like fingers and hands. Here’s a quick demo about the sensor suite on the doors and their response to several differing textured obstacles.”
Yes, we know that the objects used do vary from fingers and hands, but we assume the doors would operate in a similar manner provided that the tested object is close to the size of fingers and hands and near the same in terms of hardness.
