Elon Musk’s push for autopilot unnerves some Tesla employees

Raj Rajkumar, an autonomous car pioneer at Carnegie Mellon, frequently meets with employees from auto companies at conferences and research events. According to Rajkumar, Tesla employees he has met “say it’s an understatement to say [Tesla] is hyperaggressive.” When Rajkumar has raised concerns with those Tesla employees about autopilot’s technical limitations, the response is they have to “wash their hands of it” because “it’s a business decision.” Multiple employees told CNNMoney that numbers and data matter above all else for winning arguments with Musk and other top execs.
