Autopilot supplier disowns Tesla for 'pushing the envelope on safety'

Mobileye broke ties with Tesla Motors because the Silicon Valley firm was “pushing the envelope in terms of safety” with the design of its Autopilot driver-assistance system, its chairman has said.

It is not designed to cover all possible crash situations in a safe manner,” said Amnon Shashua, who is also chief technology officer at the Israel-based maker of collision detection and driver assistance systems.

“No matter how you spin it, [Autopilot] is not designed for that. It is a driver assistance system and not a driverless system.”

Tesla is impatient for the future. 

But I think even they admit it's a driver assistance system right now.
