Elon Musk: Many findings ‘so far’ indicate that Autopilot did not travel in the Houston crash
This week two men aged 59 and 69 died when a Tesla Model S, who was on the left side of the road, hit a tree and set it on fire. As KHOU 11 he said, the researchers said their bodies were found in the front and back seats of the occupants, and Constable Mark Herman told reporters that the investigators were “100% sure no one was in the driver’s seat who was driving the vehicle at the time of the incident.”
Given the claims of the researchers, this raises the question of whether this is an example of another Tesla user (s) Independent or beta “Complete Self-Driving System, “two assistants who should not drive the car without another driver. Although Tesla did not comment publicly on the accident, Elon Musk sent one tweet Monday to speak to them directly“
Musk did not elaborate on the findings of the car this time, when the NTSB He said sends two investigators to investigate the accident and the ensuing fire. Similarly, investigators did not determine why they were sure no one was on the wheel at the time of the crash.
However, there have been examples of Tesla owners having Autopilot assisted even if they are disabled / unconscious or sitting in the driver’s seat. One person on Twitter has backed up Musk’s claim that Autopilot would not be given a chance on the road, send video the display operates in a lineless mode. Journalist of KPRC 2 he spoke to the brother-in-law of one of the men involved in the crash, who said the owner of the car had reversed the road, then jumped back before taking off and smashed several hundred meters from where the journey began. In the meantime, we must wait for further evidence to determine the cause of the fire and the fire that lasted for about four hours.
