Former Tesla employee alleges safety issues

Its reported a former Tesla employee is claiming the company’s self-driving vehicle technology is not safe enough to be used on public roads.

The BBC has spoken to Lukasz Krupski, who leaked data including customer complaints about Tesla’s braking and self-driving software, to a German newspaper in the summer after claiming his attempts to highlight his concerns internally had been ignored.

“I don’t think the hardware is ready and the software is ready,” Mr Krupski told the BBC.

“It affects all of us because we are essentially experiments in public roads. So even if you don’t have a Tesla, your children still walk in the footpath.”

Tesla last year started rolling out a self-driving software update to employees.

The BBC says Tesla is yet to comment.
