Tesla: Public hearing into fatal Autopilot crash scheduled

United States road safety regulator the National Transport Safety Board (NTSB) has scheduled a public hearing into the cause of a fatal crash involving Tesla’s Autopilot on March 23, 2018. The hearing will take place almost two years after the incident which saw Wei Huang’s Tesla Model X collide with a concrete barrier on Interstate 101 in Mountain View, California while the vehicle’s Autopilot mode was engaged.

Tesla Autopilot: Elon Musk promises 'full self-driving features' by August

Elon Musk has taken to Twitter promising some 'full self-driving features' will be rolled out as part of an August update for Tesla's Autopilot driver assist system. At the moment, Autopilot is limited to Level 2 automation. Although stories about Tesla 'drivers' sleeping and sitting in the passenger seat – and, unfortunately, crashing while reliant on the system – abound, Autopilot is only meant to operate under constant driver supervision.

All new Tesla cars will make full self-driving leap in 2017, if regulations allow

Musk's ambitious comments come as part of an announcement today that all Tesla vehicles now rolling out of the company's factory in Fremont, California, are equipped with sensors and processing capabilities far superior to those feature in existing Teslas.
