Tesla’s autopilot feature lulled a driver into inattention according to the National Transportation Safety Board.  The fellow crashed his vehicle into the back of a fire engine.  This is a reputation crisis for Tesla and for autopilot technology.  The software and hardware packages aren’t ready for general use.  Alphabet’s Waymo subsidiary has barely allowed its vans to go driverless after years of development. There is always something the system can’t anticipate, which humans can handle.  People who use autopilot want to take their hands from the wheel and do something else.  Autopilot should allow inattention, but it doesn’t — not yet, anyway.  As long as that is the case, using autopilot is a safety risk and the systems will have a negative reputation.
