July 6 news, according to domestic media reports, in response to the recent network of “Tesla self-driving suddenly accelerated to install the dirt truck” matter. According to data taken from the back stage, the owner’s hands were off the steering wheel at the time of the accident and no braking signal was detected, Tesla officials said. Even with the self-driving system on, Tesla believes, owners should always focus on driving for safety reasons. “For now, autonomous driving technology is not yet in the perfect stage, and the main responsibility for vehicle driving remains the driver, who should remain focused on driving.”
Recently, a Tesla Model 3 posted on an online forum, the owner said that the normal driving Tesla Model 3, the AutoPilot fully autonomous feature.
According to the exposed video, the Model 3 was driving normally in the driveway when the right side came to a yellow BYD dirt truck. Instead of stopping, model 3 accelerated up and waited until the owner responded, and the accident had already occurred.
Owners say they also use FSDs, and in this case, according to past experience, Tesla will automatically slow down or change direction. But when the owner found his vehicle getting closer and closer to the dirt truck, it was too late to force his intervention.
Tesla has responded, saying that “the owner’s hands were off the steering wheel at the time of the accident and no braking signal was detected.”
But it’s clear that Tesla’s response won’t convince owners, who stress that while Tesla turned on the FSD, it’s not leaving the steering wheel with both hands, and that not being at the wheel will eliminate autonomous driving.
