Prototype On The Bench: This Ventilator is Powered by Tesla Parts

As Coronavirus cases continue to spike, Tesla is building a ventilator based on their vehicle parts. This video from Tesla Engineering shows us their first prototype. The ventilator, on a bench in their laboratory, provides hospital-grade air through a robust mixing chamber, an array of sensors, and a filter, before ultimately reaching the patient’s lungs.

Powering the ventilator? A Tesla Model 3 infotainment system.
