Tesla has expanded its “full self-driving” software to roughly 2000 Tesla owners, but some drivers were revoked access for not paying close enough attention to the road, according to Tesla CEO Elon Musk.
“FSD Beta has now been expanded … we’ve also revoked beta where drivers did not pay sufficient attention to the road, Mr Musk said in a tweet on Friday.
“No accidents to date.”…
The news comes after reports that a letter was sent in February from the National Transportation Safety Board to the National Highway Traffic Safety calling for stricter requirements on autonomous driving testing on public roads.
CNBC was the first to report the federal agency’s request for updated safety requirements for public roads testing.
In the letter, NTSB Chairman Robert Sumwalt states that Tesla is testing on public roads but with “limited oversight or reporting requirements.”
