Tesla recalled more than 2 million cars overseas because of autopilot defects, and will release OTA software updates to solve the problem.

2024-04-22 Update From: SLTechnology News&Howtos shulou NAV: SLTechnology News&Howtos > IT Information >


Shulou( Report--, December 13 (Xinhua)-- Tesla announced that 2031220 cars equipped with driving aids will be recalled due to safety risks in autopilot. Tesla plans to solve this problem through OTA updates.

The recall covers almost all vehicles sold by Tesla in the United States, including vehicles manufactured between October 5, 2012 and December 7 this year, including the 2012-2023 Model S, 2016-2023 Model X, 2017-2023 Model 3 and 2020-2023 Model Y, all models that support Autosteer automatic auxiliary steering (one of the FSD functions).

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has conducted a two-year investigation into a series of accidents that occurred after Tesla turned on the assisted driving system and found some fatal problems.

The agency said Tesla could not ensure that the driver was focused and "may lead to abuse (assisted driving)".

Tesla sent OTA upgrade notices to some of the affected vehicles on Tuesday, and the software updates included "additional controls and alarms" to "further encourage drivers to assume their driving responsibilities," NHTSA said. Note: at present, Tesla's FSD driving assist system includes functions such as Autosteer on city streets, and the software update will obviously limit the scope of use of Autosteer.

"if the driver attempts to enable Autosteer if the conditions are not met, the driver will be informed by visual and auditory prompts that the feature has been disabled and ensure that Autosteer will not be activated," the recall document said.

Obviously, this is accusing Tesla of failing to stop users from abusing the auxiliary driving function. For example, some people have played tricks before. By pressing a bottle of mineral water on the steering wheel to achieve "unlimited auxiliary driving" in order to achieve the goal of "autopilot".

Tuyuan PexelsNHTSA also pointed out that Tesla FSD has brought unnecessary risks to motor vehicle safety because he failed to fully comply with the traffic safety law. Note: Tesla China model currently does not have FSD, so please do not worry.

NHTSA warned that FSD Beta could cause vehicles to behave unsafely near intersections, such as going straight in lanes that can only turn, not fully stopping at intersections that require full parking, or rushing into intersections when the yellow light is on (without due vigilance).

At present, Tesla FSD is still limited to North America for testing, while the commonly used Autopilot can only be said to be an L2-level driving assistance system, where drivers need to keep their attention and put their hands on the steering wheel. When the driver's hands are off the steering wheel or when he is tired and the pressure is less than a certain value, it will sound an "alarm" until it detects pressure on the steering wheel.

When the Autopilot function is turned on and the speed is less than 45 mph, drive on a straight road and get your hands off the steering wheel for 5 minutes, there will be an "alarm"; if there is a bend, take into account the lateral acceleration, refer to the situation of "more than 45 mph".

In other words, when you turn on Autopilot for a period of time, you have to put some pressure on the steering wheel, otherwise there will be frequent "alarms", so there were "smart users" who thought that they could put their hands on the steering wheel with other things instead of hands, so they wouldn't keep issuing warnings.
