CEO, Tesla Motors, to make "some additional constraints" on autopilot update
Due to some people's abuse of the autopilot update, the CEO of Tesla Motors is threatening to lock it down.
While some people took this well, others abused it by ignoring Elon Musk's warning and treating their cars like they were fully autonomous.
This has caused the CEO to address the situation by threatening to put "some additional constraints" on the update.
According to Musk , this will "minimize the possibility of people doing crazy things with it."
Based on people's negative reaction to the semi-autonomous feature, Google has revealed plans to pursue full autonomy.
"We did spend some time thinking about ways we could build features to address what is often referred to as "The Handoff Problem" -- keeping drivers engaged enough that they can take control of driving as needed. The industry knows this is a big challenge, and they're spending lots of time and effort trying to solve this. In the end, our tests led us to our decision to develop vehicles that could drive themselves from point A to B, with no human intervention. Everyone thinks getting a car to drive itself is hard. It is. But we suspect it's probably just as hard to get people to pay attention when they're bored or tired and the technology is saying "don't worry, I've got this...for now."
