Elon Musk’s Tesla Automobiles and Cars are always in the top discussions when it is about new features, technology add-ons, and so on.
The recent report said Tesla’s in-car cameras transmit video footage of passengers or drivers in order to develop self-driving technology. But the main consequence of this turned out to be raising privacy concerns invading people’s personal space. This has been stated by one of the influential us magazine consumer reports on Tuesday.
One of the Consumer Reports said the usage potentially threatens the safety benefits of driver and passenger monitoring. It has been said that the use of the camera is to alert the drivers when they are not paying attention to the road.
Meanwhile, to cross-question and to dig a bit more into the matter, Jake Fisher, Senior Director of Consumer Reports’ of autotest center said- “if Tesla has the ability to determine if the driver isn’t paying attention, it needs to warn the driver for it in the moment, like any other automakers already do.
Talking about other Automobile companies such as Ford Motor and General Motors. These firms also follow monitoring systems and do not record or transmit data or video. That clearly states, Tesla is going to face some sort of criticism, as it is invading privacy according to the consumers. The magazine also said that they are using infrared technology to identify drivers’ eye movements or other head positions to alert them if they are showing any signs of impairment.
The way Tesla behaved in front of the media questions and did not immediately respond to a Reuters request for comment. Moreover, the Palo Alto, California based carmaker’s
internal cameras are also considered as a point of contention in China, and that’s why the military banned Tesla cars from entering its boundaries, complexes and other citing security concerns.
While Tesla’s Chief Executive Elon Musk said last week that his Company would be shut down if its cars were used to spy or invade privacy. Lastly, too much automation in life is not that much helpful as it seems, and somewhere it disturbs the natural way of living and respecting personal space.
