The lady interviewing sounds like a mom about to punish their child. She’s not letting him say what he’s trying to say. He’ll answer the question, just be patient. From what I’ve got from his biography and the internet is that he wants you to know the way to approach something rather than just know answers.

Autopilot allows the driver to take responsibility for the malfunction of an experimental driving system guaranteed to fail, thus relieving Tesla of all responsibility and improving the profits. Space-X would like you to assume responsibility for those failures also.

mike force How is it defective? It's new technology sure, but I wouldn't say it's defective.
mike force (1 year ago)
no, he is clear in marketing one thing while attempting to dodge responsibility . If one of these cars even dents mine, I will be suing his company and him personally. And I can easily make a case to a jury. You have NO right to make a technology to be forced on people, then whine "too bad, so sad" when it harms others. It is absurd that people can make a twisted argument about product liability when an individual breaks the law with a product, but can't seem to connect the culpability when a company makes a clearly defective product they think is "cool".

I hop when all the accident's come rolling in (And they will) due to idiots driving even more irresponsible with this feature. Most people don't have enough common sense to wipe their ass! Maybe this company will get a class action lawsuit along with the government for allowing these on public roads. Most people are to stupid to operate a toaster and they don't need to be turned loose with something as stupid as this. If you need help driving you may need to get a taxi or catch a bus? And stay off the GODDAM ROAD if you to stupid to drive!
Kelly Rayburn (2 years ago)
Exactly!! Anyone watching a movie or sleeping (or even texting) while autopilot is on should get a citation with a very stiff fine. Autopilot allows the operator (driver) to be in executive mode as opposed to pilot mode. It will take care of the second to second operation, but the operator still has to supervise it and set the speed and separation parameters. And be prepared to take manual control if the thing wigs out for whatever reason.
Daniel Mezhiborsky (2 years ago)
Even so, it's a lot safer to have well engineered software driving a car than a human driving one. In 130 million miles of Autopilot operation, there has been ONE fatal accident. One. Autopilot saves lives.
HeyDude93gt (2 years ago)
This is only if they are paying attention and understand the possible dangers while using this feature. But you know people will be watching movies, reading the news paper and god only knows what else? I could see this being very useful in bumper to bumper traffic that's going fairly slow, but people will put no thought into what could happen at 70mph in interstate traffic. There's a video of a Tesla doing it's autopilot thing and a service truck jumped right in front of him to get off the exit and the Tesla didn't know what was happening cause this other vehicle was speeding and came out of nowhere pretty much. This seemed as if it Startled the car, Kinda like a person gets startled. The driver was paying attention and grabbed the wheel but it just doesn't seem safe for them or others when driving highway speeds.
+HeyDude93gt your statement is correct, sure. Tesla autopilot, like cruise control, can help a person drive for extended periods of time vs getting fatigued. With autopilot you don't have to pay so much attention at the wheel and it could even save a life if someone is very tired and focus. The people who use autopilot aren't any worse drivers because of it. They are just using technology to their advantage.
HeyDude93gt (2 years ago)
I know what it is but I don't need or want "autopilot" If you don't want to be a responsible driver and pay attention to driving OR you just plainly don't know how to drive then maybe these people shouldn't be on the highway. Cars don't need anti lock brakes sensors back up cameras or speed detection devices IF you know how to drive.

Wait a sec... if you're driving a software glitch causes you to crash, Tesla won't be responsible?? How do they get around that when we know car manufacturers ARE responsible for mechanical faults?
InvisiMan (2 years ago)
At any moment, except when they aren't even in the vehicle (i.e. Summon feature)...
Sir Klutzy (2 years ago)
Loved this debate but it was clear woo is right in all instances of legal and liability. For right now InvisiMan it seems that liability will be held for drivers who can take control at any moment.
Woo 991 (2 years ago)
+InvisiMan2006 Improper use would be pressing the summon button while not monitoring the car.
Woo 991 (2 years ago)
+InvisiMan2006 when you use the summon feature even tho you are not in the car you have control. yes you can tell the car to brake or go faster. If the control method was unreliable tho(for instance hitting brake doesnt start braking the car in a reliable fashion) then tesla would be at fault for damages.
InvisiMan (2 years ago)
+Woo 991 How would the "proper use" of the summon feature help if the car ends up backing up into a wall when you aren't even in the vehicle?
GRRB (2 years ago)
He has to repeat his answer because the reporter is not intelligent enough to understand. Its really clear, this feature is in the same territory as adaptive cruse-control, so obviously the driver is responsible of what the car does, this features are just aides. If a car crashes while using the adaptive cruise-control and preventive braking (commonly equipped on cars today) he can not say "I was relying on the systems its not my fault"... The big question is who is letting this reporter conduct this ridiculous interviews?
John Ferguson (2 years ago)
Sorry Elon, the every time that a Tesla is involved in an accident involving serious injury or death while on autopilot, Tesla will be sued. It doesn't matter what Tesla states in it's instruction manual. Tesla will be liable if they produced and sold a product that has inherent safety problems. You can get a waiver of liability from an innocent third party. Tesla might not owe anything to the owner but they could still be held responsible for injuries and damage done to others.
John Ferguson (2 years ago)
+driftspeed I understand quite well. His proposals for self piloting vehicles is unrealistic.The limitations are not technological, they are legal and political. He has been drifting along on a river of cheap money as Tesla sales have been weak as the company has hemorrhaged money. He cannot cut prices to increase sales.
C6DRIVES (2 years ago)
+John Ferguson you don't really understand what elon is saying?
John Ferguson (2 years ago)
+Hey There Billy ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) I understand lawyers and legal liability. We have a "Deep Pocket Rule" in California; where Tesla is headquartered. Look it up and you will understand the problems that Tesla and other manufacturers will have. The deadly crash in Florida was just the first example. It won't be just the Tesla owner/driver suing. The people injured or killed in the other vehicles will also file lawsuits.

But does autopilot see motorcycles I keep asking all the latest posts about this thing and no one seems able to answer the question or wants to.What is you switch on your indicator and the car slams into a motorcycle, or the car just mows down a motorcyclist in front of it simply because it can't see them, how safe is this system?
flitsies (2 years ago)
+Mark Schey Well that's good to know, because it seemed one of those questions people were not supposed to ask. So does it take the outline of the rider or does it go for the tail light, I'm just curious because some bikes have a very small rear end while others have a huge fat arse. I'm also curious about the depth of the vision from the sensors/cameras cos the car might see the rider but not be able to work out the depth of the distance between the rider and the tail of the bike. It's no more than curiosity because if this tech is going to come online more such things need to be considered for the safety of others not only the car driver. And then there are the cyclists you do have to wonder how it works out what is what the depth the range and so on.  Hey but thanks for the info.
Mark Schey (2 years ago)
+flitsies I know you asked this months ago, but yes, it can differentiate between cars, trucks, and motorcycles. The on-screen display shows a motorcycle when it's in view of the forward-facing Autopilot camera.
Kurt Foster (2 years ago)
Its a bit hilarious to see big auto companies producing ads that show - "active parking assist" and so on. While Tesla on the other hand is completely revolutionizing the way cars are. period. Autopilot is like nothing to Tesla. In fact its CEO Elon Musk only works at Tesla Motors 2 days per week, the rest of his time is spent trying to colonize mars... I am not kidding you. look up SpaceX, it will blow your mind. Also, search the term "Gigafactory", a battery factory tesla will build thats just as big as the Boeing factory in Seattle! Anyways, what an amazing time to be alive!

I feel like both of them are so dumb-ed down in this interview!! She's dumb "blond" just by way she looks, possible mild case of Down Syndrome and she was able to bring Musk into her frame of reference and thus dumb-ing him down to her level. He answered her question twice and twice she asked; 'SO, WHO IS THE RESPONSIBILITY FALLS ONTO?" A fucking driver, you dumb slut! Can't you hear he said that fully autonomous is coming maybe in 6 years and then it'll be the responsibility of the manufacturer and not the driver. How did that twat ever got a job in front of the camera is question one and how she was ever allowed to interview Musk is question two!

Daveinet (2 years ago)
I don't think people understand the concept of autopilot. I have autopilot on my sailboat, but I am fully responsible if it crashes. Its really more like steering assist. It gets confused sometimes, and is only useful in limited conditions. But it is super handy to have, as it allows me to use my hands for other things, like eating, or socializing. In some conditions, it steers better than I do. If I am in heavy traffic, I stay at the helm, but it still seers the boat. In open water, I have more freedom, but still have to pay attention.
Daveinet (2 years ago)
+turboslut Yes, but those Walmart types will troll YouTube and also do media interviews.
Xyu (2 years ago)
+Daveinet well, it's not like every "wallmart" type will be buying tesla anytime soon. This means we don't have to worry about idiots thinking Cruise control is an Autopilot http://www.snopes.com/autos/techno/cruise.asp . Also, idea is to prevent normal folks not to get in debacle with idiots who don't know how to drive or just reckless! If my car can prevent an accident and let that twat spin out of control and smack into a light post, I am 100% okay with that. http://electrek.co/2015/10/28/tesla-autopilot-wdriver-assistance-prevents-a-45mph-head-on-collision-video/

"Billions in change" was the ad before the video. Probable the first time I let the ad play with out skip.
paladin876 (2 years ago)
The difference here is that if there is a problem with the autopilot on an airliner they have about 30,000 feet to figure it out. Plus air traffic control is directing traffic. In a car, you may only have a matter of feet to correct if the autopilot doesn't do what it is supposed to. That would also mean that you would need to be paying attention. We all know that once this thing hits the street, people are going to become complacent and accidents are going to happen. Even though Elon Musk says you are still liable. I have a feeling that Tesla is going to find itself wrapped up in legal battles over liability.

You keep your hands on the wheel, and your eyes on the road. Pretend the car might crash as often as a computer, if you were to look away, and I'm sure that'll be motivation enough to keep you focused. In 3-5 years, this'll be a better system because there'll be less bugs and more mature software. For now, it's very impressive, but very limited. What's good is that most people can't afford those cars yet, so by the time they can, in 10 years, the systems will be very mature in comparison to the baby steps we've taken so far. Fantastic work from Tesla. Bravo.

I'm against the whole idea of auto pilot, you must pay full attention to the road and regulate your speed at all times but now it's gotten more advanced to which people could be drunk when behind the wheel and that is not a good combination.
Hatagashira (2 years ago)
+Adam Carruthers Autopilot might make it more likely to get away with drunk driving but it sure as hell doesn't take away the burden of responsibility.
Martin Andreas Kruse (3 years ago)
+Adam Carruthers Depends. If you're drunk and your actions behind the wheel lead to an accident, it's just you being a drunk driver. Humans will with 100% certainty be less effective than a computer/robot driving your car in a few years. We get way too easily distracted by emotions and other factors such as health (cardio arrest), sight, dark blindness, frustration (slow/fast traffic), panicky (too many cars/distractions) etc. etc. Computers don't have these. You can already see how effective self-driving metro trains are in various places in the world, like the metro here in Copenhagen for instance.

She's asking perfectly good questions. I just don't see his lawyers (or any automakers lawyers) letting him anywhere near fully autonomous driving. An accident will happen, and his company will be sued. Autopilot is different. It doesn't change lanes, or exit the highway. The driver must signal a turn and slow down, this defeats cruise and autopilot. It's a great feature for stop and go driving. Mercedes also offers this feature.

May I inject a tiny note of caution?  You cannot design anything to be idiot-proof.  The idiot will always find a way to totally fuck-up, it's in their genes!  Do you remember the motor-home new owner who turned on her cruise control and then went in the back to make herself a nice sandwich?  She crashed of course - but successfully sued the manufacturer because it was not in the vehicle instructions that such an action was forbidden.  Get someone who knows how to write stuff really watertight, give customers a DVD of operator instructions, signed for, or film each handover as proof - whatever - because as sure as eggs is eggs, some gormless one-watt moron will work out a way to autopilot one of your lovely, safe cars straight over a cliff!

Im interested about my balls in your face. What are these questions? I mean, yes, I understand you have to ask them, but, he answered your question, so you ask it again? If this was a self-driving car, you would know it. If tesla was comfortable taking legal responsibility, youd know it. Surely he shouldnt need to baby step a reporter who is supposed to be doing her homework about these things. And you say "Oh, I want the clearest answers for my audience", well, guess what, your audience doesnt even need you to ask that question. You do it just to be complete.

*So what if I'm talking on my phone while autopilot is engaged. Do I still get ticketed?*

I often heard stupid peoples calling me «rich-hater» which is false. What those simpletons can't understand in their 1-dimension mind is that I can't stand the rich peoples which made their money by speculation, exploitation of people, greed and brought NOTHING to society, no long-term vision for mankind, no real innovation. Most often. those leeches don't deserve a penny of their own forture and are treated like geniuses, messiahs of St-Dollars. That is CLEARLY NOT Elon Musk's case. I seriously ADMIRE that brilliant guy. Musk is pushing the world in the right direction. That guy is a fucking HERO.

work in progress clearly and I applaud tesla for taking a hefty step into the future with this,.. I'd just be concerned about the event where it's on auto pilot and you approach a shifting lane where lines on the road intersect and don't make sense.. what would the car do?

Drivers crash, die, and kill innocent people every minute. It's a safe bet to say that safe autonomous driving is possible right about now and is in the near pipeline for a company like Tesla. Government will of course stand in it's way like a bully until the water spill over the dam.
takanara7 (3 years ago)
The government isn't stupid (well, it's not *that* stupid).  They know crashes will decrease with autonomous vehicles, and crashes cost them a lot of money. in fact, we're likely to see things like collision avoidance become mandatory as other safety features have (like air bags, and so on)

How about training the driver to be a better driver?

+babybirdhome Dude America doesn't even compare to Europe. Go to Europe if you love it so damn much. You won't though because you love all the great things America has to offer even though you talk shit.

+babybirdhome do you know where Tesla is produced?
babybirdhome (3 years ago)
This is 'Murika, and you think you can train anyone to be a better driver? Nope! That would stand in the way of teh freedumbz! We could already have been doing this the way much of Europe does, but we haven't. It's clear that we don't value safety, education, or prudence in the U.S.

In my opinion, any accidents should be all on the user, not the vehicle, and why are people bashing tesla so much for this. They are not the first ones to have auto pilot features, look at mercedes, bmw, gm, and no one is giving them shit, so why tesla.

I'm not sure I buy the claim that two motors makes it substantially more efficient. 1-2% maybe, not the 11% claimed in range. not sure what's going on there.
Andrei Brănescu (2 years ago)
+Dan Frederiksen Actually, if you listen closely you will see that he said 10 miles, not 10%.
T M (3 years ago)
By having two motors they have to power two motors with roughly half as much energy is. But it turns out that both motors usage can vary slightly and if you can balance your supply to each motor carefully depending on the performance of each motor, you can in turn use less energy. Basically by having hitting the sweet spot on two engines

+Dan Frederiksen Yes weight load from the mass transfer. More vertical load = more grip = more negative torque (Resistant Torque produced by the traction force) Resistant Torque =< Torque limit of the diff 
Dan Frederiksen (3 years ago)
+Rik1pk weight load sure. not torque
Rik1pk (3 years ago)
+Dan Frederiksen PS: Outside wheels have larger load than others

What happens when auto pilot on air plane fails? Obviously, they need to consider legal liabilities if they want to develop a fully autonomous car, this is meant to be just a driver assist. I would really appreciate auto pilot feature as many drivers crash their cars while distracted.

curtis133 (3 years ago)
what happens when you crash into someone behind with old school cruise control... its Your fault, this is absolutely no different aside from this will prevent that from happening and save you a law suit, people get so wound up over who to blame, fact is these kinds of systems will dramatically lower accidents world wide and it will be noticed very quickly and infact already is noticed, check out google driverless cars travelling Millions of miles now with zero accidents ect people just dont want to admit that a machine can do it better? I Love to drive but even with my skills and experience realize over a long 10 hour highway drive this would be the best thing since .. the car.
Junn Kopf (3 years ago)
when autopilot on an airplane fails, the pilot(s) take over... it's the same with the the model s, i assume.
K (3 years ago)
+Danny Shin Elon Musk is probably thinking how to do that already. Model S can practically navigate itself to destinations, so with the combination of wireless charging that shouldn't be too hard to do. The barrier for autonomous drive seems to be regulations not technology.
Yohanes Mario Chandra (3 years ago)
+Danny Shin As elon said, this is auto-pilot, not autonomous driving. You're still expected to check the charge level of the car and go to the charging station yourself.
