Tesla bans toys from moving cars

Tesla will no longer allow video games to be played on the car's compact screen, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The deal came on the second day after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration opened a formal investigation into the game's features. The investigation was announced after the New York Times reported this month about the game's potential risks.

"After an initial evaluation of the job, Tesla has notified the authorities that the job function will be changed," a statement from the safety authority said. It is locked in the new software update and cannot be used while driving.

If you tested a feature called Passenger Play earlier this month, you can play some Tesla Arcade games while the car is in motion.

A warning will appear on the screen that only passengers can play while the vehicle is in motion and a button will be requested to confirm that the player is a passenger. But nothing can stop the driver from pressing buttons and playing games while driving.

Safety experts have criticized the company for letting it touch toys while the car is in motion. It's indisputable that the feature isn't dangerous, said Jason Levine, executive director of the Consumer Group at the Center for Automotive Safety.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a statement that Tesla notified the agency that the job would be changed.

"The Vehicle Safety Act prohibits manufacturers from selling defective vehicles that pose undue safety risks, including technologies that prevent drivers from driving safely," the agency added in its statement.

The game is limited to parked Tesla cars

Over the past year, the organizers have paid great attention to the automaker. After the company's car repeatedly collided with parked emergency vehicles, it embarked on an investigation into the automatic steering function. Since the first incident in 2016, there have been 8 incidents in which 10 people were killed.

I was also asked publicly if the company offered a fully self-driving test that uses a certain level of security to determine who got it, and initially offered a nondisclosure agreement.

Although the functionality of the video game is not directly related to the problem of the bot advisor. However, the security agency said it feared Tesla drivers could play games while using automated guides. It is a misconception that cars should drive independently and not turn around on the road.
