"Musk was unconvinced and overruled his engineers. In May 2021 Tesla announced it was eliminating radar on new cars. Soon after, the company began disabling radar in cars already on the road. The result, according to interviews with nearly a dozen former employees and test drivers, safety officials and other experts, was an uptick in crashes, near misses and other embarrassing mistakes by Tesla vehicles suddenly deprived of a critical sensor"

#Cars #SelfDriving #Tesla #Musk: "Long before he became “Chief Twit” of Twitter, Elon Musk had a different obsession: making Teslas drive themselves. The technology was expensive and, two years ago when the supply chain was falling apart, Musk became determined to bring down the cost.

He zeroed in on a target: the car radar sensors, which are designed to detect hazards at long ranges and prevent the vehicles from barreling into other cars in traffic. The sleek bodies of the cars already bristled with eight cameras designed to view the road and spot hazards in each direction. That, Musk argued, should be enough.

Some Tesla engineers were aghast, said former employees with knowledge of his reaction, speaking on the condition of anonymity for fear of retribution. They contacted a trusted former executive for advice on how to talk Musk out of it, in previously unreported pushback. Without radar, Teslas would be susceptible to basic perception errors if the cameras were obscured by raindrops or even bright sunlight, problems that could lead to crashes."

Musk’s decision to eliminate the radars coincided with the rising #hype around #AI methods (ie., “neural networks”) whose proponents argued that camera-based computer vision was sufficient. As the original AI experts left Tesla, I know true-believer neural network engineers, with no real expertise in other key areas of AI, were hired by #Tesla after the “no radars” decision. So Musk likely felt there was technical support for his decision. Yet…3/5

#Safety is a word that is tossed around like a cheap suit these days - particularly in the context of #AutomatedDriving systems and, more typically, in white hot topics like #Tesla's #FSDBeta program.

But what is "safety" (or “#SystemsSafety”, terminology that I prefer to use)?

How is it defined?

This thread is probably overdue given the immense amount of incorrect and strawman arguments that I see out there on this topic - and that has real-world ramifications.

The pushback becomes...

"Well, Dan O'Dowd and #TheDawnProject did it... so why can't I?"

The Dawn Project should be contrasting the unmanaged, sloppy, quasi-testing that #Tesla has constructed, with displays of managed, competent and responsible testing.

That is the way to educate the public and, perhaps, educate #automotive regulators.

To make matters worse, it is my understanding that some of these "testing" clips were shown during a #SuperBowl advertisement that #TheDawnProject commissioned...

This type of display really does make the job of other #SystemsSafety experts so much harder, perhaps damn near impossible now (and in the #Tesla Universe, it was already a chore).

This display can be used by laypeople to disqualify competent warnings on safety-critical systems testing outside of a managed SMS.

Adam Cook

Such a process is *instrumental* in not only continuously and efficiently protecting the public, but also, in allowing the technical organization to "tease apart" the components of a large, complex safety-critical system (operating within and with other safety-critical systems).

By essentially tossing "beta" software over-the-wall to untrained, unsophisticated human drivers in an enormous ODD with zero controls... no possibility for a SMS can exist.

That is what #Tesla is doing.
