Tesla‘s Autopilot and Full Self-Driving Beta are two of the company’s most impressive pieces of technology. They have been widely celebrated for their potential to revolutionize transportation and make driving safer and more efficient. However, recently Tesla has come under scrutiny for potential safety issues with both of these systems and has been forced to recall nearly every EV equipped with Full Self-Driving Beta.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) released a recall notice on February 16th which outlined the potential safety issues with Tesla’s Full Self-Driving Beta. The recall notice claims that the system, which costs Tesla owners an extra $15,000, can cause crashes due to its inability to properly account for speed limits and changes in traffic. In addition, the system may respond insufficiently to changes in posted speed limits and may travel through intersections in an unlawful or unpredictable manner.
The recall affects a range of Tesla vehicles, including 2016 through 2023 Model S and Model X cars, and 2017 through 2023 Model 3 cars. 2020 through 2023 Model Y vehicles with Full Self-Driving are also affected. Tesla issued the recall voluntarily and will be sending out free over-the-air (OTA) software updates to owners of the affected vehicles. However, Elon Musk was not happy with the news and took to Twitter to call out the use of the word “recall” for the OTA software update.
In addition to the recall, the US Justice Department is currently probing Tesla over safety concerns and claims from the company regarding its autopilot system and Full Self-Driving feature. This comes after a TV ad which aired during the Super Bowl demanding the NHTSA take action regarding safety concerns with Tesla’s Full Self-Driving feature in major US metropolitan areas.
Tesla’s Autopilot and Full Self-Driving Beta systems have the potential to revolutionize the way we travel and make driving safer and more efficient. However, the recent recall and investigation into Tesla’s safety procedures is a reminder that even the most advanced technology can have its flaws. It is essential that Tesla and other companies continue to prioritize safety and be willing to recall and update their technology when necessary.
