Tesla is recalling more than 362,000 electric vehicles in the USA to update its Full Self-Driving (FSD) software after U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regulators said the driver assistance system could cause crashes.
Details: NHTSA researchers discovered the potential safety risks in the context of an ongoing investigation into Tesla’s Autopilot driver-assistance technology.
- In some circumstances, FSD-equipped cars traveled or turned through intersections during a “stale” yellow light, or traveled straight in a turn-only lane.
- They also sometimes didn’t stop long enough at stop signs and failed to adjust their speed when speed limits changed.
