On July 6, according to domestic media reports, in response to the recent Internet rumors that "Tesla autopilot suddenly accelerates to load a muck truck.".Tesla officials said: according to the data retrieved from the background, at the time of the accident, the owner's hands were in the state of being detached from the steering wheel, and no brake signal was detected.Tesla believes that even if the autopilot system is turned on, for safety reasons, owners should always focus on driving."At present, the automatic driving technology has not reached the perfect stage. It is still the driver who is mainly responsible for the driving of the vehicle, and the driver should keep his concentration on driving."
Recently, a Tesla Model 3 published a document on an online forum to protect its rights. The owner said that the normal running Tesla Model 3 has turned on autopilot fully automatic driving function.
According to the exposed video, model 3 was driving normally in the driveway at that time, and a yellow BYD muck truck came to the right.Instead of stopping, model 3 sped up. When the car owner responded, the accident had already happened.
Car owners said that they usually use FSD, according to past experience, in this case, Tesla will automatically slow down or change direction to the side. However, when the owner finds that his vehicle is getting closer to the muck truck, it is too late to intervene.
At present, Tesla has responded to this issue,"When the accident happened, the owner's hands were out of the steering wheel, and no brake signal was detected.".
But apparently tesla's response did n' t convince the owner, who stressed that while tesla turned on FSD, his hands didn't leave the steering wheel with his hands on, and would cancel autopilot if he did n' t leave the wheel.
