On May 7, 2016, a 40-year-old man named Joshua Brown was hit by an electric car Tesla Model S on Highway 27A near Williston, Florida, in a fatal crash with a towed trailer. .Three years later, another Tesla owner, Jeremy Berren's 50-year-old Bayner, who managed the Tesla Model 3 on the Florida Highway, suffered the same type of fatal accident.

According to official reports, the model 3 clashed with a roadside trailer, and the tragic accident caused full cover of the roof.
The researchers found that both incidents had many similarities – during the incident, the two owners turned on advanced technology to help Tesla Autopilot with automated help.
As described by the Automobile Engineers Association, Tesla's Tesla Driver Assistance Functions combine adaptive cruise control, tape maintenance, automatic parking and tape change.
Tesla claims it has one of the safest road systems, but both lives have provoked widespread outsiders, arguing that the company overlooked serious technical shortcomings.
It should be noted that the S and Model 3 with fatal accidents are actually equipped with different basic patterns.
Model S, driven by Brown, used technology from Israel's Mobileye launch, which was later purchased by Intel. The accident also caused Tesla to part with her.
Model 3, which is operated by Banner, is equipped with the second generation Autopilot solution developed by Tesla.
Lessons from the crash show that although Tesla claims that his autopilot technology is sufficiently advanced, it's not enough to deal with some extreme unusual conditions.
To date, the camera-based recognition system for Tesla's computer vision is unable to accurately identify white trucks in the light sky.
Unfortunately, the National Roadside Safety Administration (NHTSA) eventually found that Brown should assume responsibility for negligent objections and allow Tesla to step down.
As the owner set the cruise control system to 74 km / h 2 minutes before the two cars collide. But before finally discovering and hitting the truck, he actually had at least 7 seconds of reaction time.
Regarding the fatal accident that Baner has faced, federal investigators have not yet come to a conclusion. However, in a preliminary report released on May 15, the National Transport Safety Board (NTSB) said:
Automatic automatic automatic 10 seconds before the accident, but 10 seconds before the accident, the vehicle did not disclose that the driver put his hands on the steering wheel, causing it to hit 68 km / h.
