exciting future prospect. There are many factors that must be considered when making a decision about who’s at fault when an autopilot crash occurs. Which is the role of the driver or the manufacturer when an autopilot accident occurs? Perhaps we now know the answer. In this short video, you will learn about a recent ruling from the aftermath of a Tesla autopilot crash. Unfortunately, none of the auto repair could make the accident better.
An old man drove his Tesla equipped with autopilot several back in the day. As his Tesla was leaving a highway, he wasn’t paying at all. The autopilot had a red light and hit a couple that was driving through the intersection. The couple tragically were killed during the accident. Two years later the driver of the Tesla was convicted on charges of vehicular manslaughter. This is an extremely strong precedent. It is not always an issue with the automaker when there is the autopilot crashing. It could also be the fault of the manufacturer when the user was not paying to pay attention. Tesla has introduced safety features to prevent inattention. The car, for instance, will alert drivers who had their hands off the steering wheel. Self-driving vehicles aren’t yet practical.
