Tesla's automatic lane changes pose safety concerns

In the first version of Navigate on Autopilot, Tesla said the software could guide a vehicle through highway interchanges and exits and that it could make a lane change if the driver confirmed it by using the turn signal or accepting an onscreen prompt.

Consumer Reports did not have kind things to say about Navigate on Autopilot after a thorough test of its capabilities.

Senior Director of Auto Testing Jake Fisher said in a statement Wednesday that the system doesn't appear to react to brake lights or turn signals, and it can't anticipate what other drivers will do. "You constantly have to be one step ahead of it". The outlet argued that companies should need to provide public evidence of a semi-autonomous system's safety before it's made available to buyers. The company aims to launch Full Self-Driving - with driver monitoring, at first - sometime next year. Neither the driver nor the system stopped for a tractor-trailer turning left across the path of the Tesla Model 3 in a crash that was similar to one in 2016 that killed a driver near Gainesville, Florida.

Consumer Reports said Tesla's latest upgrade to its Autopilot system took it on a wild ride - claiming the electric-car maker's software drives like "a kid behind the wheel".

In response, Tesla said that drivers who use Navigate on Autopilot properly have traveled millions of miles and safely executed millions of automated lane changes. The feature is reportedly so bad that drivers have to intervene often to prevent the vehicle from "making poor decisions".

If drivers turn it on, the vehicle will automatically execute lane changes when Navigate on Autopilot is active, and it will continue to do so until drivers change the setting or turn off Autopilot. The magazine said it drove on highways across CT, where its test track is located. After taking several highway trips in its home state of Connecticut, CR said the vehicle was taking a few too many risks, changing lanes too closely to other cars. In addition, the system also didn't return to the right lane after passing, which also could draw a traffic citation in the state, the magazine said.
