A video of Tesla EVs beta testing the most recent fully autonomous version was taken down from YouTube.
A Tesla owner put their own kids in the car and drove them on the road and down their driveway to imitate real-world driving situations.
The tests were designed to see if a slowly driving Tesla equipped with the most modern driver assistance systems produced by the firm would automatically avoid pedestrians strolling or standing in the roadway.
YouTube Removes the Tesla Video
YouTube does not allow the distribution of material that exposes children to danger or encourages them to engage in risky behaviors.
Dares, jokes, and stunts all fall under this category of content. When a business finds films on its platform that encourage unsafe or illegal behavior that could lead to severe harm or even death, it removes those videos right away.
The specific regulation that YouTube was referring to deals with questionable and dangerous content.
On August 14, a video was uploaded on Omar Qazi’s Whole Mars Catalo YouTube account. The investor in Tesla, Tad Park, was filmed operating a Model 3 Tesla car at a speed of eight miles per hour.
On a road in the San Francisco Bay Area, the car was seen moving in the child’s direction, according to CNBC. Before YouTube removed the video, it received thousands of views.
Park is the CEO of Volt Equity and a portfolio manager for CAR. He claimed that after doing the test on a tall basketball player and a mannequin, another youngster stood up and his other child crossed the street.
He made sure the car acknowledged the child and emphasized that it was not moving faster than eight miles per hour. “I was ready to take over at any time,” said Park.
If the car did not appropriately slow down, “I had a sense of when I was going to need to brake.”
In a nationwide advertising campaign that challenged the driver assistance capabilities provided by Tesla, Dan O’Dowd, the creator of a software company, made assertions that Park conducted the tests to disprove.
The owner of the Whole Mars Catalog YouTube channel, Omar Qazi, is well-known for being a shareholder in Tesla and a prominent advocate for the brand on social media.
Tesla’s Full Self
The Full-Self Driving beta program from Tesla enables the cars to autonomously navigate to a location that the driver has pre-programmed into the navigation system.
The driver is still in charge of remaining vigilant at all times and being ready to take control of the car at any moment.
Tesla has been regularly releasing new software upgrades to the FSD Beta program, and the business has been expanding the beta program’s user base.
Tesla’s FSD beta 10.69 was scheduled to launch tomorrow, August 20, according to electric, however, Elon Musk announced on Twitter that it will be rolled out with extreme caution.
“Releasing on 8/20 to about 1000 Tesla owners, then 10.69.1 next week to incorporate feedback & release to about 10,000 customers, then 10.69.2 the following week & release to the rest of FSD Beta,” Musk said.
