Tesla's 'Autopilot' system is not safe for use on public roads, says Whistleblower

According to media reports, a former Tesla employee in Norway has come forward, revealing the company's ethically questionable practices, especially with regard to their driver assistance software. Speaking in an interview, the former employee Lukasz Krupski stated his concern about the readiness of both the software and hardware of the assisted driving feature.

Krupski is said to have handed over 100 GB worth of data to a German business newspaper earlier this year, stating that his attempts to bring his concerns to higher-ups were ignored. He went on to mention how the company's internal data suggests that Tesla did not follow the protocols involving the safety of the driver-assist technology. This data includes several documented instances of Tesla's 'phantom braking' phenomenon.

As per reports, Krupski was reprimanded and ultimately fired for taking photos of unsafe practices in his workplace, on grounds of violating company policy. The data leaked by the former employee is said to include lists of Tesla employees, their social security numbers, thousands of accident reports and internal Tesla communications.

Re: Tesla's 'Autopilot' system is not safe for use on public roads, says Whistleblower

All of this information is completely useless. We have no idea who this person is, what his credentials are, other than he managed to get hold of a lot of confidential information.

Why anybody would want to release social security numbers of Tesla employees is beyond me. If anything if you want to present yourself as a credible and knowledgable whistleblower, this is probably the last thing you would share.

If you want to be a credible whistleblower it helps if you know what you are talking about and have concrete evidence and documentation about your claims.

This guys has not shown anything as far as I can tell, that suggests Tesla claims about the autopilot function are not true.

Articles like this give the press a bad name.
Lots of innuendo but not a thread of credible evidence.
