Tesla’s driverless car has crashed in the US state of Texas, killing two passengers.
Police believe no one was in the driver’s seat at the time of the crash. One of the two people killed was in the front seat while the other was in the back seat.
According to reports, in the US state of Texas, Tesla car Model S was running at high speed but it failed to make a successful turn and hit the tree uncontrollably. The car caught fire after the accident.
The two men in the car, who were over 50 years old, died on the spot.
When contacted by the BBC, Tesla did not immediately comment on the crash.
Constable Mark Herman of Harris County Precinct Four said: “The case is still under investigation but the evidence shows that no one was in the driver’s seat at the time of the accident.”
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post.
What Tesla calls auto-pilot is actually a semi-auto-driving system that can drive a car in certain situations.
Tesla plans to launch a fully automated driving system by the end of this year.
Both auto-driving systems are not, in fact, fully automated, and Tesla itself says that the human driver needs to be fully alert in the driving seat, with his hands on the steering wheel in order to be able to drive the car when needed. Take control of yourself.
But if you look on social media, there are videos in which the driver is either asleep or gets up from the driver’s seat and goes to the back seat. Some accidents have occurred due to misuse of the car’s auto-driving system.
The car safety research group Thechum and several other critics say the way Tesla offers driver-assisted systems is misleading and encourages people to take risky behaviors.
In Germany, Tesla has been banned from using the term “autopilot enclosure” in its advertisements.
Elon Musk, chief executive of US carmaker Tesla, has said in the past that he will introduce a fully self-driving system this year.
Last month, however, the US National Highway Safety Administration launched an investigation into 27 accidents involving Tesla cars.
In a similar incident, at the Shanghai Auto Show, a Tesla car owner was standing on the roof of a car protesting a brake failure.
There have been several fires in Tesla’s S model.
In 2118, the Tesla car of British TV director Michael Morris caught fire. Similarly, in 2016, there was a fire in Tesla’s S model car in France.
In 2013, there were several fires in Tesla’s S model.
