Elon Musk And The Tesla Automation Strategy: A Disruptor In Vehicle Safety Or Not?

Elon Musk And The Tesla Automation Strategy: A Disruptor In Vehicle Safety Or Not?

AgeLab Research Scientist Bryan Reimer writes in Forbes on Tesla's attention to driver safety in its development of increasingly automated vehicles:

Tesla might argue, as detailed in its vehicle safety report, that Autopilot improves safety; however, other data seems to suggest differently. If Tesla’s Autopilot feature has not been clearly established to be dramatically better than a human, should one ask, how was Tesla allowed to release (and perhaps continue to sell) Autopilot without a camera-based driver monitor?
