The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration under the U.S. Department of Transportation suspects that there are problems in the autopilot system.
The U.S. transportation security regulator is launching an investigation against Tesla due to suspected problems in the autopilot system (ADAS). Reuters reported this on Monday with reference to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) under the U.S. Department of Transport.
According to him, the NHTSA has recorded 11 cases in the United States since 2018 in which Tesla car models “participated in [road traffic] accidents and as a result, crashed into one or more cars.”
According to the agency, the agency will consider about 765 thousand cars produced from 2014 to 2021 during the investigation.
In June, NHTSA investigated 30 cases of accidents involving Tesla cars, resulting in which 10 people were killed. According to the results of the study, the agency suspended the operation of the ADAS system.
