  • Another Auto-Pilot Mode Crash Occurs in a Tesla Car

This time, Tesla autopilot-related crash occurred in China.

Tesla is already seeing a lot of investigation and rather a large number of negative views related to its auto-pilot mode in cars. The recent crash that occurred in May in the city of Florida was proven to be fatal for the Driver Brown.

His car crashed while it was being driven on the auto-pilot mode, according to Reuters. Brown was unable to survive the injuries and died on impact.

Tesla however later on said that the auto-pilot mode was no longer on when the car crashed. Tesla has been making efforts in order to tell everybody that the auto-pilot mode is the safest and efficient choice for drivers while providing them assistance.

However it looks like Tesla is not getting out of this trouble any time soon. Another crash happened in China while a car was being driven on auto-pilot mode.

The collision occurred on the highway of Beijing when a driver Luo Zhen’s car collided with a car which was parked alongside highway.
Zhen and Tesla both have confirmed that the car was on auto-pilot mode.

It can be seen clearly in the before accident footage that the car did not react to the parked car and kept on driving in its line. This resulted in the Tesla car grazing the side of parked vehicle.

The collision resulted in knocking off a side mirror and scraping both vehicles in a pretty bad way. We can clearly see a broken front bumper and scratched sized with good sized dents.

According to the spokesperson of Tesla this problem occurred because Zhen did not had his hands on the wheel. According to Tesla it is a driving assistant system instead of a fully autonomous mode. Thus a driver have to keep an eye on the road while using the auto-pilot as well. However it looks like Tesla is all set to face another problem.
