Tesla’s a bit nervous about its Autopilot autonomous traveling technology and today I know why.
When I initially engaged Autosteer in the configurations menu, I was greeted by a wall of legalese explaining the tasks I have simply because a driver while operating the system. In case that wasn’t enough, Tesla as well insisted that I first try Autopilot with a communications executive in my passenger seat making sure I was prepared to operate it securely and correctly ahead of my Model S P100D review.
You can’t really blame Tesla.
The company has encountered serious backlash for the system. Some possess blamed it for crashes, others possess criticized the cavalier marketing strategy and allegedly misleading name. Elon Musk has also declared his purpose to 1 day morph Autopilot right into a fully-autonomous system, and he’s previously selling vehicles marketed as having the hardware essential for full self-driving capabilities.
Commonly, when I review cars with semi-autonomous capability, I add a few sentences beneath the “driving” section to critique the systems. But simply because you can observe, there’s far too much to unpack with Autopilot. I made a decision to execute a separate article, focusing on what Autopilot does and what it does not do.
