Tesla’s automatic driving even staff feels very insecure

On May 7 this year, a car accident occurred in Florida and resulted in the death of the driver. It was the driver who used the Autopilot System on Tesla. People were increasingly worried that Tesla did not take preventive measures. This allows the user to activate the automatic driving function.

However, Tesla CEO Elon Musk believes that Autopilot system can avoid human error and thus save people's lives. Therefore, Elon Musk has been pushing the system to the market, which makes some Tesla employees worried.

It is reported that before Tesla starts the Autopilot system, it will push a disclaimer to consumers.

From the very beginning, the Autopilot development team knew that any defects or unforeseen failures could lead to casualties, and the May accidents also confirmed their concerns.

However, Tesla employees are most concerned about the driver's misuse of the Autopilot function. Even though Tesla has repeatedly reminded the driver to return to essential driving, it is not uncommon for drivers to ignore the reminder case when Tesla opens the Autopilot system.

Although the absolute data point of view, the use of autopilot technology is actually lower than the probability of accidents caused by man-made driving, a new thing, it will inevitably be suspected, after all, caused the first deadly car accident, had to let people take a serious look The feasibility of this technology.

As far as Tesla’s automatic driving technology is concerned, this technology is only a transitional period for fully autonomous driving technology, which is far from fully automated driving. There is still a big gap between people’s imagined autopilot.

The questioning and confidence crisis of Tesla’s autopilot technology is actually a deviation from the knowledge of autopilot between the Tesla side and the owner. The Autopilot technology that Tesla currently provides to the owner is not completely understood. Autopilot, which is more practical in terms of definition, is an auxiliary tool and cannot completely replace human-driven driving because it is only a transition, but many owners have defined this technology as autopilot, so they have problems. At that time, it was all Tesla's technical responsibility, but it was pointed out that Tesla had never promoted this.

Regardless of rumors and concerns, the Autopilot system is based on cloud computing in today's big information era and will be increasingly improved by engineers' efforts. Even if some people complain that the Autopilot system is not perfect, at least it is the most advanced technology in today’s driving system. Knowing that traditional carmakers haven't done it yet, Tesla has come out and it takes time to prove that new things are good or bad.
