No, it's a report on TSLA's Autopilot dangers, which insideevs regurgitated from the original source, which is why it (and your following post on autopilot hazards) does not belong on this thread.

Well-designed semi-autonomous systems are not causing crashes into immobile objects at anywhere near the rate TSLA's does
, for the same reason well-designed battery packs do not burst into flames after a crash (and at random other times), the way TSLA's do.
Non-TSLA semi-autonomous systems, like the non-TSLA battery packs, in the USA, are all (to date) designed and produced by competent companies.
As you know I've been very critical of Tesla's implementation of A/P, but always based on peer-reviewed research as well as statistical data. What is your statistical data for making that claim
? From the NHTSA's report on Joshua Brown's crash:
ODI’s analysis of Tesla’s AEB system finds that 1) the system is designed to avoid or mitigate readend [Sic. Rear-end]
collisions; 2) the system’s capabilities are in-line with industry state of the art for AEB performace
through MY 2016; and 3) braking for crossing path collisions, such as that present in the Florida fatal
crash, are outside the expected performance capabilities of the system.
Note that as well as surveying a dozen manufacturers for the capabilities of their AEB systems, they tested Tesla's system against a comparably-equipped Mercedes at the time. I have stated my disagreements with many of NHTSA's conclusions in that investigation, but not with their testing.
Now, it may be that other companies' AEB systems have significantly improved in the interim, but AFAICT the main reason that Tesla's are known to be having a lot of rear-end crashes when a car moves out of their lane to avoid a stopped vehicle is that they attract more media attention, and there are a lot of them on the road. I haven't seen any data that other AEB systems do any better with this issue. So, absent any hard information that shows that Tesla has fallen well behind other companies, the post belongs in the general AV rather than A/P specific topics. Should such evidence arise, it will be appropriate to move it.
