There is always criticism of Tesla's Full Self-Driving.

In a test, the system now overlooked children's dolls and drove them over. 

Both the "Autopilot" and the more expensive "Full Self-Driving" (FSD) bring Tesla criticism again and again.

Accidents happen again and again because the drivers trust the systems completely, although strictly speaking they are only driving assistants.

As a result, Tesla was sued by the US authorities in California for misleading advertising.

Elon Musk (52) is so convinced of the FSD that he has his customers test the beta version on public roads.

Users repeatedly demonstrate how dangerous this is with videos.

This is also the case with “The Dawn Project”, which wants to draw attention to the dangers for children.

This is said to not correctly recognize Tesla's "Full Self-Driving" and thus poses a fatal danger to children, according to the accusation.

For the tests, a child-sized doll was placed on the street and a Tesla with FSD activated drove towards it at 40 km/h.

Tesla's full self-driving is repeatedly criticized.

Tesla: Full Self-Driving does not recognize children

The result of these tests is quite sobering: not once does the Tesla slow down for the child.

Similar results have already been obtained from other tests in which children were also not recognized.

For example, the system also has problems recognizing dogs and cats.

"Elon Musk claims that the FSD software is great," explains The Dawn Project founder Dan O'Dowd in the short clip, adding: "But it's not!" Much more is the "Full Self-Driving “A danger to all Americans.

The tests are intended to show the vulnerabilities and thus put pressure on US politicians to ban the function.

Until Tesla's electric cars "don't mow down kids anymore," O'Dowd wrote on Twitter.

Tesla: Full Self-Driving under criticism

But the founder of "The Dawn Project", which wants to ensure safe interaction between people and computers, is also criticized.

The reason: He has a company that is active in the field of self-driving cars.

However, O'Dowd emphasizes that there is no competition with Tesla and that the car manufacturers only use a few components of his company's software.

The numerous accidents prove that the criticism of the Tesla FSD system is not unfounded.

Accordingly, the US traffic authority NHTSA is also investigating a connection.

In Germany, the US manufacturer even had to refund a customer because a court considered the software to be too dangerous.
