  • Tesla has updated its Autopilot software following a federal recall agreement, with the U.S. IIHS testing the system alongside others from major automakers.
  • A study by IIHS gave poor ratings to Tesla’s Autopilot and Full Self Driving technology, citing a lack of evidence for real-world safety benefits compared to other systems.
  • Tesla CEO Elon Musk claims Autopilot is safer than the U.S. average, despite ongoing investigations into nearly 1,000 accidents involving the technology.

Tesla has recently revised its Autopilot software in response to a federal recall agreement. This update comes after the U.S. Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) announced that it will be testing the updated system along with nine other assisted-driving systems offered by major automakers. In a new study released by the IIHS, Tesla’s Autopilot and Full Self Driving technology received “poor” ratings. The research arm of the insurance industry stated that there is no evidence to suggest that these systems provide real-world safety benefits based on crash data. Despite the poor ratings from IIHS, Tesla CEO Elon Musk has claimed that a Tesla operating with Autopilot engaged is significantly safer than the U.S. average. However, federal regulators are currently investigating nearly 1,000 accidents involving Tesla’s Autopilot technology.
