Tesla’s autopilot system not safe and may even increase risk of crashes – investigative report

New research by Quality Control Systems Corporation (QCSC) has found that Tesla’s Autosteer may have made accidents more common instead of reducing crashes.

According to the report, the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), which launched an investigation in 2016 following a fatal Tesla crash, has misinterpreted the data it was provided. Back then, the NHTSA determined that the system wasn’t just safe, but actually slashed crash rates by nearly 40 percent.
