According to The New York Times, Tesla has now been ordered to turn over all its detailed Autopilot data by October 22 or else the electric vehicle company will face fines up to $115 million USD. The NHTSA has indicated to Tesla to produce a detailed report on how the driver assistance system works. It specifically asks the company to pinpoint exactly how Tesla ensures that drivers will keep their eyes on the road even when using the Autopilot function.
For months, Feds have criticized Tesla for not being able to make sure drivers will keep their hands on the wheel despite using the function. Tesla only recently activated the camera mounted above the rearview mirror of its Model Y and Model 3 vehicles so that they can detect and alert drivers to be attentive to the road. Autopilot was only designed to be used on highways, however Tesla does not actively stop those from using it on regular local roads. The NHTSA is also looking or information on how many Tesla cars are sold in the U.S. as well as all the arbitration proceedings and ongoing lawsuits regarding the company. They also plan to look into all the complaints filed against Tesla.
