Tesla is working on adding a new vehicle hazard warning system to its cars, according to a new report.
The system is the result of a partnership with Emergency Safety Solutions (ESS) which is the company behind the Hazard Enhanced Location Protocol, or HELP.
Electrek reports that the system is particularly useful when dealing with stranded cars on a highway, with ESS sharing a 3D animation of how things would work.
ESS’ Hazard Enhanced Location Protocol (H.E.L.P.®) is designed to provide highly conspicuous lighting and digital communication using existing vehicle lighting systems, in-vehicle telematics, OEM cloud platforms and navigation application systems.
While the system does various things, including making hazard lights refresh more frequently, the most notable addition is the ability to notify nearby vehicles of an obstruction. It uses the cellular system to make that happen, and the company has announced a deal with Tesla to bring the tech to its cars.
Emergency Safety Solutions, Inc. (ESS), creator of the Hazard Enhanced Location Protocol (H.E.L.P.®) which revolutionizes vehicle hazard warning systems to help prevent crashes into disabled and vulnerable vehicles and their occupants, announced today it has signed a global agreement with Tesla, Inc. to deploy H.E.L.P. on Tesla models initially in North America via over-the-air software update.
Importantly, it sounds like this system can be added to existing Tesla vehicles using an over-the-air update, rather than needing any form of hardware installation.
