The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety ran a survey that is scary. A large portion of drivers of Teslas and other advanced driver assist features, are overestimating their cars ability, considering them fully driverless. Even scarier is that many of those surveyed had noted that they had to take over suddenly, or even moreso… were locked out of features due to inattention and other fail safes. This disconnect on the part of drivers is serious, and has implications against how these cars are marketed and sold. Note that Tesla’s true self-driving, defined by the industry as Level 5, still has yet to be delivered.
Hey Elon, it turns out people think cars are driverless when you call them ‘full-self driving.’
