And I can't find any credible reports of other Autonomous systems being blamed for crashes, though I'm sure some will occur, if they haven't already.
The Uber Volvo killing a pedestrian in Arizona (one of the same situations shown in the video below) wasn't credible?...
You seem to have forgotten that Uber had turned the Volvo's AEB system off.
Backup driver in fatal self-driving Uber crash was streaming Hulu
Police in Tempe, Ariz., said June 21 that backup driver Rafaela Vasquez was watching TV right before a fatal crash in a self-driving Uber in March. (Reuters)
The backup driver in an autonomous Uber that struck and killed a pedestrian in March looked down inside the vehicle more than 200 times and her smartphone was streaming NBC’s “The Voice” in the run-up to the deadly collision, according to Tempe, Ariz., police investigators.
Rafaela Vasquez “appears to react and show a smirk or laugh at various points during the time she is looking down,” according to a police report released late Thursday. Her eyes were repeatedly trained on the “lower center console near her right knee,” police said. Video recordings don’t show what she’s doing with her hands.
Uber’s self-driving system initially misidentified the 49-year-old victim, Elaine Herzberg, as a vehicle when she was pushing a bike across a dark thoroughfare, according to the National Transportation Safety Board. The ride-hailing company’s specially outfitted Volvo was deliberately being tested on public roads without its emergency braking system turned on, the agency said.
Vasquez, who was supposed to provide a second layer of safety, did not begin braking until after Herzberg was hit...

Obviously, any semi-autonomous system (or human driver) can benefit from a dependable AEB system as backup, and TSLA's defective AEB system is a certainly a contributing factor in its poor autopilot safety record.
First, TSLA's autopilot failure steers the vehicle toward a collision, then TSLA's AEB system's secondary failure does not stop (or even slow) the vehicle, allowing (often fatal) high-speed collisions to occur.

I can't find the same successful test results from any TSLA autopilot vehicle.
