Regulator probes July 1 crash of Tesla Model X in Pennsylvania

Yesterday we reported on an accident on the Pennsylvania Turnpike where a Tesla Model X hit a guard rail, the concrete median and then rollover.

Last week, NHTSA announced that it was investigating a fatal crash in Florida that happened in May.

"We received an automated alert from this vehicle on July 1 indicating air bag deployment, but logs containing detailed information on the state of the vehicle controls at the time of the collision were never received".

In a statement, the company says that it now has "no reason to believe" that Autopilot was turned on at the time of the crash and hasn't had any success calling Scaglione since.

NHTSA said it was "collecting information from the Pennsylvania State Police, Tesla and the driver", Albert Scaglione of Farmington Hills, Michigan. The Detroit Free Press quoted a police officer saying the driver had told him Tesla's Autopilot self-driving system was engaged when the accident occurred.

Google Cast for Education lets students show their work to the class
The hope is that Google will be able to put streaming technology into schools so that it can be used for educational purposes. It also doesn't require the installation of new hardware for the teacher since it runs on their existing computer.

NHTSA is looking to learn whether Tesla's Autopilot function, a semi-autonomous technology that helps drivers steer and stay in lanes, was at play.

There are some problems the way Tesla went about doing this, but it's not going to be ideal.

In many ways, we've been warned: Players like Google and Ford have made no secret about preferring so-called L4 tech (full autonomy) vs. a more graduated approach like the one Tesla has implemented with Autopilot.

Another Tesla vehicle in autopilot mode has been involved in a crash, coming a week after the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said it is investigating the circumstances leading to a May accident that became the first fatality caused by a self-driving vehicle.

According to the police report, Scaglione could be ticketed in this crash if he is found to be at fault.
