  • Tesla says that they would not disable Autopilot service in Cars

Tesla denied all rumors of discontinue using Autopilot mode in cars.

Tesla Motors Inc. Chief Executive Elon Musk says that they have no plans of disabling the autopilot mode in cars. Since the fatal accident that happened in May, there were rumors of Tesla’a autopilot not being up to the mark.

However Tesla is carrying out investigation with the National Highway authorities and SEC to see if the car was being driven on Tesla’s autopilot software or something else. Tesla also identified that this kind of accident was the first in more than 130 billion miles driven on Tesla’s autopilot mode. 

Tesla introduced autopilot mode in order to bring ease and luxury while driving. According to WSJ, the company has no plans of shutting down the service so early after being introduced. 

Elon Musk recently said in a statement that they have no plans of shutting down the facility. However they will take extensive measures in order to teach the people about autopilot mode. He said that people need to learn about the functionality of autopilot mode. Thus they will be educated for that purpose. 

Tesla has the ability to turn off the autopilot on one command. The autopilot which was not already introduced in the older models was later on introduced after a software update. So if Tesla needs to discontinue this feature then they can do it by blocking it on the software too. 

However nothing can be said with confirmation until the investigations are completed. The company needs to see if the autopilot is associated with accident or not. Thus it is fine to keep on using the autopilot feature.

Many people have been seen weary about the beta version of Tesla’s autopilot version. Nonetheless only time and investigation will tell about the fact if the autopilot will be continued or not.
