An ex-Tesla employee questions car safety

In May, Lukasz Krupski exposed data to the German newspaper Handelsblatt, including consumer complaints about Tesla’s braking and self-driving software.

He claimed that attempts to raise his concerns inside were ignored.

Requests for comment were not returned by Tesla.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has pushed the company’s self-driving technology.

“Tesla has by far the best real-world AI,” Mr Musk wrote in a Saturday post on X, formerly Twitter.

However, in his first UK interview, Mr Krupski expressed alarm to the BBC’s technology editor, Zoe Kleinman, about how AI was being utilized – to power Tesla’s autopilot service.

Its autopilot feature, for example, provides assistance steering and parking – however, despite its name, it still requires a driver in the driver’s seat with their hands on the steering wheel.

“I don’t think the hardware is ready and the software is ready,” he told me.

“It affects all of us because we are essentially public road experiments.” So, even if you don’t own a Tesla, your children will still walk on the sidewalk.”
