Cross Reference: NHTSA requests data from 12 OEMs as part of Tesla probe

Toronto, Ontario — Tesla’s autopilot system is causing safety concerns among drivers and the automotive industry alike, so the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has decided to take up the case and send letters to 12 major OEMs, requesting equivalent data for comparison.

The group includes the “Detroit Three” automakers of Ford, General Motors and Stellantis, as well as nine other makers that operate in the U.S.

The letters say the data will be used for a comparative analysis of Tesla’s features and request details on each company’s Level 2 Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS), which it defines as being able to “control both steering and braking/accelerating simultaneously under some circumstances” while the human driver is continually engaged, including their testing protocols and any crash reports that involved the technology.
