Tesla Model 3 software updates revealed

  • Swiss Tesla accident: crash may have sparked battery fire

He tweeted: "It's super messed up that a Tesla crash resulting in a broken ankle is front page news and the (approximately) 40 000 people who died in U.S. auto accidents alone in past year get nearly no coverage".

Tesla is constantly updating its cars, so look for more software updates coming to the Model 3 in upcoming months as well. The NTSB had yet to announce whether they will be looking into the Utah crash.

Tesla is at a critical juncture as it tries to fix an inauspicious launch of the Model 3 sedan, a mid-market auto crucial to its success and future profitability that has been plagued by early production problems.

Tesla's Autopilot displays audio and visual warnings if it does not detect a driver's hands on the wheel, and it will shut the system off after too many warnings. "Eyetracking rejected for being ineffective, not for cost".

Autopilot crashes: Is it the tech or the driver?

The show always premieres in Fox's traditional late September release window, usually right around the autumnul equinox. The new season will be having 13 episodes, bringing the total episodes of " Gotham " to 100 episodes.

Everyone at Tesla is not only encouraged, but expected, to provide criticism and feedback to ensure that we're creating the best, safest cars on the road. Winkler said they expect to see a report back from Tesla in a matter of days.

The 28-year-old said that she was using her phone prior to the collision while the semi-autonomous driving features was enabled. Tesla's Autopilot allows the vehicle to drive itself for short periods of time with steering, acceleration, and braking based on traffic conditions.

"What's actually unbelievable about this accident is that a Model S hit a fire truck at 60 miles per hour and the driver only broke an ankle", Musk tweeted. In a couple of recent tweets Musk downplayed the accident itself, emphasizing the fact that the only injury the Tesla driver had sustained was a broken ankle, when, he argued, it would have been much worse in any other vehicle.

The National Transportation Safety Board has not opened an investigation into the crash, spokesman Keith Holloway said, though it could decide to do so. The family alleges the crash was the fault of Tesla's Autopilot feature.

The NTSB said last week it was investigating a Tesla accident in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, on May 8 that killed two teenagers and injured another - the agency's fourth active probe into crashes of the company's electric vehicles.
