Tesla recalls over 20 lakh vehicles to address autopilot safety issues

Following a two-year investigation by U.S. auto-safety regulators into Tesla's Autopilot mode-related crashes, Elon Musk's company is recalling over 2 million vehicles. The recall aims to address the flawed system meant to ensure driver attention while on Autopilot mode, affecting nearly all Tesla cars sold in the U.S. since late 2015.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration identified Autopilot's shortcomings in verifying driver attentiveness, potentially leading to system misuse. The software update aims to enhance controls, encouraging drivers to maintain continuous responsibility while driving. Initial updates have been dispatched, with the rest of the vehicles scheduled for the same.

Though capable of steering, accelerating, and braking within lanes, Autopilot remains a driver-assist system and cannot independently operate the vehicle. Recent evaluations revealed vulnerabilities in its monitoring system, allowing drivers to manipulate the system, including driving under the influence or being seated in the back.

In an earlier instance this year, Tesla recalled 54,676 Model X vehicles due to issues detecting low brake fluid and a lack of warning light display. This recall, affecting vehicles manufactured between 2021-2023, was resolved via an over-the-air software update.
