Tesla’s Autopilot System Causes Fatal Car Accidents

Tesla has had increasing problems with their self-driving technologies. This company was once revered as a technology leader in the automobile industry, but lately it hasn’t been performing at its best. Fatal car accidents in both California and Florida raise questions about Tesla’s Autopilot system.

Tesla’s Autopilot system is the cause of a fatal accident in California.

Walter Huang, 38, died on March 23, 2018 from an accident caused by Tesla’s Autopilot system, working in conjunction with the cruise control follow-distance set to minimum. The Model X car slammed into a barrier on the 101 Highway near Mountain View, California. Tesla is keeping the public up-to-date on the accident.

Autopilot still requires assistance from the driver.

Although Autopilot mode is meant to assist drivers, it can be confused with a completely independent self-driving feature. When it comes to its Autopilot system, Tesla says the driver should still keep their hands on the steering wheel, while paying attention to the road. The driver in the Florida crash failed to do so, leaving the Autopilot system to fail and hit a tractor-trailer.

Has Tesla lost its credibility?

After these two fatal accidents, the public is questioning whether Tesla’s future as a high-technology automobile company is still bright. Tesla has great ideas for the future of automobiles, but will they come to fruition in a safe, effective way?

After multiple accidents due to the Autopilot system and other self-driving features, Tesla stocks have dropped and its customers are concerned about its developing self-driving technologies. According to CBNC, “Tesla stock dropped more than 5% in after-hours trading as executives cut off Wall Street analysts in an earnings call dubbing their questions on Model 3 margins ‘boring.'”
