Autopilot Supplier Ends Relationship With Tesla Over Safety Concerns

When the people behind Autopilot end their relationship with you over safety concerns, you know something is wrong. How does Tesla spin statements like the ones made by these guys? It's not like they can say "those guys don't know what they are talking about." eek!

Mobileye broke ties with Tesla Motors because the Silicon Valley firm was "pushing the envelope in terms of safety" with the design of its Autopilot driver-assistance system, Mobileye’s chairman said on Wednesday. "It is not designed to cover all possible crash situations in a safe manner," Amnon Shashua, who is also chief technology officer at the Israel-based maker of collision detection and driver assistance systems, told Reuters. "No matter how you spin it, (Autopilot) is not designed for that. It is a driver assistance system and not a driverless system," he said in an interview.
