A Model 3 avoided a fender bender just with the use of front radar and the Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) system. The vehicle was not in Autopilot mode, when in a traffic jam zone the two cars ahead collided. The Model 3’s emergency braking system reacted immediately and stopped the car right behind the front vehicle.
Even when the Autopilot with a Hardware Kit 2.0+ is deactivated, the other safety systems are always active and use the Autopilot’s hardware. Here is the video.
