In Texas, an electric car maker, Tesla's passenger car crashed into a tree beside a road, killing two men, and local police officials said no one was sitting in the driver's seat at the time of the accident. I showed my point of view.
Tesla's passenger cars have the ability to automatically control the steering wheel and brakes, and the US Department of Transportation is investigating the cause of the accident in detail.
Two men were found dead in a Tesla car on the 17th near Houston, Texas, when a Tesla car crashed into a tree on the side of the road and burned.
One of the men died in the passenger seat and the other in the back seat, local police officials said that no one was sitting in the driver's seat at the time of the accident.
Tesla's passenger cars have a function called "autopilot" that automatically controls the steering wheel and brakes, and the Road Traffic Safety Bureau of the U.S. Department of Transportation formed a special team on the 19th to start a detailed investigation of the cause of the accident. I made it clear.
Meanwhile, Tesla CEO Elon Musk posted on Twitter, pointing out that "autopilot was not available in view of the data recovered so far."
Consumer groups have criticized Tesla's autopilot for misleading drivers as if they were fully autonomous without having to be involved in driving, and in the United States, there is concern about the cause of the accident. I'm gathering.
