The autopilot of a Tesla causes accident again | Digital Trends Spanish

The autopilot system of Tesla cars remains in question, after a Tesla Model 3 of the Elon Musk brand caused a new accident by colliding with two other vehicles that were stopped on the road.

The accident happened in Orlando, Florida, last Saturday, August 28. The vehicle in question crashed into a police car on a highway, which had stopped to help another driver.

Fortunately, there was no misfortune to mourn, as only the driver of the Tesla as well as one of the stopped vehicles suffered minor injuries; meanwhile, the police officer was unhurt.

The driver of the Tesla Model 3, a 27-year-old man, was driving with autonomous driving at the time of the accident.

Happening now: Orange County. Trooper stopped to help a disabled motorist on I-4. When Tesla driving on “auto” mode struck the patrol car. Trooper was outside of car and extremely lucky to have not been struck. #moveover. WB lanes of I-4 remain block as scene is being cleared.

This new event once again raises doubts and questions about the systems that Tesla uses, which are based on cameras and sensors to determine the movements to be followed by the vehicle. However, these systems are only semi-automated and it is strongly recommended that the driver pay attention to their surroundings at all times.

But these recommendations have not prevented that there have been more than a dozen accidents due to failures in the recognition of the environment. Although Tesla frequently adds new functions to its vehicles and they are even capable of stopping in front of red lights, it has not been achieved that the systems fail and especially in what has to do with parked vehicles.

In addition to what an accident entails as such, Teslas have the risk of them catching fire in an accident. And putting out an electric vehicle on fire requires different actions than a traditional fire, so the process can become a real odyssey.

This autonomous driving technology from Tesla is the same one that will be behind the Tesla Bot, the robot that Elon Musk wants to build to help with the heaviest and most boring tasks.
