Many Tesla electric vehicle owners have begun to complain about sudden brakes being applied while driving. For this reason, dangerous situations have arisen on the roads more than once.
The brakes are applied when the ADAS driver assistance mode is on and the car is on autopilot. Car owners note that cars either slow down smoothly to a full stop, or stop abruptly, which has repeatedly created the danger of an accident. The reason is called the activation of the autopilot due to the erroneous recognition of obstacles in the way.
The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is already investigating complaints from car owners.
