Massachusetts U.S. Senator Edward John Markey has published a letter recommending improvements to the Tesla Autopilot electric vehicle system. In it, the politician first proposed renaming the complex
The parliamentarian considered that the name distorts the real possibilities and limitations of the system. Drivers rely too much on the work of assistant electronics, so they neglect the requirements specified in the instructions. The senator suggests renaming the Autopilot something more appropriate to its real functionality: the name should indicate the inability of the system to completely replace the person.
At the same time, Marki believes that Tesla needs to improve control over the actions of the driver. Electronics now monitors the pressure, the applied force and the frequency of receipt of this data, but it is easy to fool. The politician suggests using auxiliary systems that could track, for example, gaze or movements. Moreover, if one of them produced an error, the second would turn on. Thus, the driver would always be supervised.
