Recently, a document released by the US official department NHTSA pushed Tesla to the cusp again, and even some netizens used & ldquo; epic & rdquo; to describe the discovery of the investigation.
According to & ldquo; quantum position & rdquo; reports that the U.S. Highway Safety Administration (NHTSA) has a sentence in the exposed document that looks particularly eye -catching:Autopilot Abort Vehicle Control Less Than One Second Prior to the First IMPACT.
Many netizens have questioned: such a design, Tesla can deny that the accident is because Autopilot?
It is reported that last year, many car owners complained that Tesla broke into the accident scene while turning on AutoPilot of the autonomous driving system and hitting a first aid car, police car or accident vehicle parked on the roadside.
NHTSA has conducted investigations since August last year. NHTSA investigations found that in 16 accidents, Autopilot of most vehicles activated the front collision warning (FCW) before the collision.
About half of the automotive emergency braking (AEB) also conducted active intervention. But in the end they failed (one person died unfortunately).
The terrible thing is, on average,Among these 16 accidents, Autopilot stopped control within one second before the car had occurred.And this is not time to take the time to take over enough human drivers.
At present, the investigation continues, and Tesla has not made further explanations to the matter. And NHTSA reminded that cars that do not have completely autonomous driving on the market, & ldquo; Each car requires the driver to be in control at any time, and all states are required to be responsible for the operation of their vehicles. & rdquo;
