Tesla’s Next Move? Self-Driving Semi-Trucks
BOISE and NAMPA, Idaho. Even as the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigates the recent Tesla crash in which a car’s autopilot may be to blame, Tesla continues to make announcements about the future of the auto industry and the self-driving car. The crash, which took place in Florida, in which the car’s autopilot was engaged, is being called the first documented death involving a self-driving car. However, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is still undergoing an investigation into the technology and it is unclear why the accident took place. Fortune notes that Tesla has no current plans to disable the autopilot systems in its car models. In fact, Tesla has recently announced that it plans to put electric trucks, and self-driving tractor trailers on the road.
