Tesla: Removal of 'Autopilot' from Chinese site a mistake

What's more, some have criticized the fact that Tesla employs the term "Autopilot" in the first place.

Tesla says the term "Autopilot" was mistakenly removed from the electric auto maker's website for China and it will be restored.

A Beijing driver accused Tesla Motors Inc (NASDAQ:TSLA) of misleading marketing after his Model S scraped a parked Volkswagen earlier this month while its Autopilot feature was engaged. It should be noted that Chinese law requires two hands on the wheel for all drivers.

Drivers must also keep a light hold on the steering wheel when using Autopilot, something data uploaded from the vehicle claims Zhen was not doing.

Russian newspapers cover Erdogan-Putin talks
Both countries' relationship was mended after President Erdogan delivers his apology for the jet that had been shot down. Ankara has repeatedly said the coup attempt was organized by followers of US -based preacher Fetullah Gulen and FETO.

"Additionally, the system will feature a new front-facing triple camera system for which we are told Tesla started installing new housing in the Model S production", the report said. If you would like to discuss another topic, look for a relevant article.

These include: integrating energy generation and storage; expanding Tesla to create electric trucks and public transport; fully autonomous vehicles; and ultimately to allow cities where cars are shared as autonomous taxis. But the Tesla sideswiped the parked vehicle, allegedly with Autopilot engaged, and the driver took no action to avoid the collision.

Putting the vehicle on Autopilot is like taking a sleeping pill: it is much more hard to maintain passive attention over time than to actively drive the auto.

The report also said that the fund owned 104,821 Tesla shares as of March 30, before it increased its shares.

Turkey Prepares Official Request to US for Arrest of Fethullah Gulen
The Turkish PM was addressing attendees in an Istanbul meeting on investment late Friday through teleconferencing. Turkey has branded Mr Gulen's movement a terror organisation and wants the cleric returned to face trial.

Tesla described the changes as modifications made to address "discrepancies across languages", a barrier that many other companies have encountered over the years. At the end of the past week, both terms were removed from the page. Indeed, many take the position that calling the feature Autopilot provides drivers with a false sense of security.

When Luo posted a video on YouTube about how he was told the auto could drive itself, it created ripples felt all the way across the Pacific at Tesla headquarters in Silicon Valley. Mashable reached out to Tesla for comment and clarification regarding the terms.

A quick search online shows Tesla owners giving different time intervals for the "no hands" warning, with one owner saying they get warned if they don't touch the wheel every 15 seconds, and another owner saying they can go 15 minutes before a warning.
