Lack of ‘safeguards’ in Tesla’s Autopilot contributed to fatal crash


From The Verge:

The National Traffic Safety Board had stern words for all parties involved in the 2016 crash that killed a man driving a Tesla Model S and put the company’s Autopilot driving technology under scrutiny. The board issued seven recommendations at the Tuesday hearing, including three for Tesla and every other automaker that offers Level 2 self-driving abilities that suggested manufacturers should not let a product be used, in a manner that is, “inconsistent with its design.”
