The safety features of Tesla’s electric car are once again under question. A video has been shared on Twitter, which claims that a Tesla while driving in its self-driving test climbed on top of a child-sized effigy. The test was carried out by the safety campaign group Dawn Project, in which the latest version of Tesla’s full self-driving (FSD) beta software failed to detect the presence of a stationary dummy on the road.
The advocacy group said the video is now being broadcast as a TV ad demanding a complete ban on the Tesla FSD and that it will air “until Elon Musk proves it’s not children.” will be crushed.” It further stated that the test was conducted under “controlled conditions” at a test track in California.
The video shows a Tesla Model 3 crashing into a child-sized dummy at the end of the road, with no other obstacles. The test was conducted by a professional test driver who was tasked with driving at an average speed of 40 kmph between the two lines of cones.
One blog post In the Dawn Project, said, “Our Tesla Model 3, equipped with the latest version of the full self-driving beta software (10.12.2), repeatedly hit the effigy in a way that would have been a real baby. [यह] would be fatal.”
The Guardian’s accordingDan O’Dowd, founder of the advocacy group, also described FSD software as “deadly technology”. He said more than 100,000 Tesla drivers are already using the car’s full-self-driving mode on public roads, which has put children in communities across the country at “great risk”.
Tesla, on the other hand, has yet to respond to the video, but it has repeatedly hit back at claims that its self-driving technology is too underdeveloped to guarantee the safety of car occupants or other road users. According to the outlet, earlier this month, Elon Musk even said that full self-driving has improved a lot, and he plans to make the software available to all owners by the end of the year. Hope those who request it.
