Are yall really going to trust the next self-driving that comes out to not malfunction and kill you?


Washington CNN —

A driver told authorities that their Tesla’s “full-self-driving” software braked unexpectedly and triggered an eight-car pileup in the San Francisco Bay Area last month that led to nine people being treated for minor injuries including one juvenile who was hospitalized, according to a California Highway Patrol traffic crash report.

CNN Business obtained the report detailing the crash through a public records request Wednesday. California Highway Patrol reviewed videos that show the Tesla vehicle changing lanes and slowing to a stop.

California Highway Patrol said in the Dec. 7 report that it could not confirm if “full self-driving” was active at the time of the crash. A highway patrol spokesperson told CNN Business on Wednesday that it would not determine if “full self-driving” was active, and Tesla would have that information.

The crash occurred about lunchtime on Thanksgiving, snarling traffic on Interstate 80 east of the Bay Bridge as two lanes of traffic were closed for about 90 minutes as many people traveled to holiday events. Four ambulances were called to the scene.

The pileup took place just hours after Tesla CEO Elon Musk had announced that Tesla’s driver-assist software “full self-driving” was available to anyone in North America who requested it. Tesla had previously restricted access to drivers with high safety scores on its rating system.
“Full self-driving” is designed to keep up with traffic, steer in the lane and abide by traffic signals. It requires an attentive human driver prepared to take full control of the car at any moment. It’s delighted some drivers but also alarmed others with its limitations. Drivers are warned by Tesla when they install “full self-driving” that it “may do the wrong thing at the worst time.”

The report states that the Tesla Model S was traveling at about 55 mph and shifted into the far left-hand lane, but then braked abruptly, slowing the car to about 20 mph. That led to a chain reaction that ultimately involved eight vehicles to crash, all of which had been traveling at typical highway speeds.

Tesla’s driver-assist technologies, Autopilot and “full self-driving” are already being investigated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration following reports of unexpected braking that occurs “without warning, at random, and often repeatedly in a single drive.”

The agency has received hundreds of complaints from Tesla drivers. Some have described near crashes and concerns about their safety. This summer NHTSA upgraded the investigation to what it calls an engineering analysis, an indication that it’s seriously considering a recall.



UPDATE:


"He got out and spoke to the driver of the crashed Tesla, who was not injured in the incident. The driver told Kaplan he had his 2018 Model X in Autopilot but "it suddenly veered hard to the left and stopped against the wall."

Kaplan bought his Tesla about four months ago with 6,000 miles on the clock but said: "It has been a complete disappointment – software notwithstanding, the fit and finish are miserable."

He said he's also experienced many frightening miscalculations by Autopilot in his Model X.

"Just last week it completely ignored a traffic cone on the highway and ran over it," he told Insider. "That was just before, the car turned from an inside of a double-turn lane into the outside lane despite there being other vehicles already occupying that space."

Kaplan quipped that Tesla should advertise Autopilot as "the scariest ride you'll ever take."

AS A FORMER VEHICLE TESTER, SELF DRIVING VEHICLE SCARE ME. I'VE BEEN IN VEHICLES THAT NOSE DIVED ON THE HIGHWAY AFTER DETECTING SHADOWS. I'VE BEEN IN CARS THAT WENT WIDE OPEN THROTTLE AFTER CHANGING LANES. I HAD AN ESCALADE VEER OF THE HIGHWAY AT 85MPH IN A SLIGHT TURN BECAUSE THE CAR COULDN'T FIGURE OUT WHICH LINE WAS THE HIGHWAY AND WHICH ONE WAS THE OFF RAMP.

SELF DRIVING TECH SHOULD BE SECONDARY SUPPORT FOR SAFETY INSTEAD OF PRIMARY DRIVING FOR VANITY...
