What causes most car crashes? Mark Matousek:
Tesla said… that the only way last month’s fatal Model X accident could have occurred was if the driver was not paying attention.
The accident, which happened in Mountain View, California, occurred while the vehicle’s semi-autonomous Autopilot software was engaged. Tesla had previously said the driver, Walter Huang, received multiple warnings to put his hands on the wheel in the six seconds before the crash and indicated a shortened impact attenuator increased the damage to Huang and the vehicle. Huang died after being taken to the hospital.
Paying attention is important.
