Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, has a different mindset from other auto executives.  He places technology in his vehicles early on and lets the public try it out, whether it is dangerous or not.  At least, that is what he has done with his autopilot feature that has been the cause of a number of deaths.  No car company today, other than Tesla, would dare put a self-driving feature into their trucks and automobiles because it is still a hit-and-miss function.  The system cannot see dangers ordinary drivers would spot in a second.  Tesla advises drivers to keep their hands on the wheel, but, of course, they don’t.  Musk has the mentality of a Silicon Valley entrepreneur. If it is good enough, get it out.  Don’t wait.  But, of course, apps for a phone or computer aren’t life-and-death tools while self-driving is.  He is being sued for the failure of his autopilot feature to prevent wrecks, and well he should be.  The public shouldn’t have a defective function that might be a marketing success but a failure in reality.
