Tesla blames brakes for fatality

American automaker Tesla Motors recently stated that failing automatic brakes were responsible for the fatal Florida accident under investigation. Tesla refuted that the cause of the accident was the vehicle’s “Autopilot” technology, a July 29 article of the New York Times reported.

Tesla experts told investigators in the Senate on July 28 that the braking system of the vehicle has nothing to do with the Autopilot technology. However, an expert from an auto research company believed that the two technologies are related and work together to prevent accidents. Tesla and its Autopilot technology were investigated by the Senate after a Tesla driver in Florida was killed by crashing into a semi-truck. The driver was believed to be using the unmanned driving technology that, according to Tesla, is a “lifesaving technology” when the accident happened.
