Tesla's use of the term FSD is misleading and irresponsible

Jennifer Homedi, chair of the National Transportation Safety Board, told the Wall Street Journal that Tesla must address important safety issues before expanding its fully automated driving mode (FSD).

Elon Musk, the company's CEO, said earlier this month that the company's goal is to bring a larger version of FSD to market by the end of September. This will allow more customers to use the public trial button.

As the Wall Street Journal reported, the software - the software primarily designed for highway driving - will be upgraded to prepare vehicles for driving on city streets.

Homendi claims that the company's use of the term fully self-driving is misleading and irresponsible. Moreover, the company appears to have misled many people into misusing the technology. The National Transportation Safety Board can investigate and make recommendations. But he has no right to use it.

Tesla must address core safety concerns before expanding FSD

According to documents received by legal transparency organization PlainSite in May, the company's autopilot project manager told the US Department of California that Musk had exaggerated the capabilities of the company's advanced driver assistance system, the predecessor to the FSD system.

In February 2020, the National Transportation Safety Board determined that Tesla's autopilot system was a possible cause of fatal accidents in 2018. Note that drivers who play mobile games while using Auto Nav are very confident in Auto Navigation.

The National Transportation Safety Board said the company ignored its 2017 autopilot safety recommendations.

The agency has asked Tesla and five other automakers to equip advanced driver assistance systems with safeguards to make abuse more difficult.

He also recommended that car manufacturers specify where and when these driver assistance systems should be used. Tesla is the only automaker that has not formally responded to the recommendations of the National Transportation Safety Board. However, if the driver takes his hands off the steering wheel while using the autopilot, the alarm frequency will increase.
