Tesla Announces Recall of 2 Million Cars Due to Autopilot Safety Concerns

Tesla will recall over two million vehicles to address Autopilot safety concerns. Fixes will be issued through free over-the-air (OTA) updates, adding features that ensure drivers pay attention while using Tesla’s Autopilot driver assistance system. Features include more prominent visual alerts, making it easier to turn Autosteer on and off, and eventual suspension from Autosteer if the driver fails to behave responsibly. NHTSA opened the investigation following 11 crashes with parked first-responder vehicles since 2018. Owners are being warned not to sell one of the popular trucks soon after purchase as Tesla could seek injunctive relief to prevent owners from transferring their vehicle’s title if they attempt to sell it within one year of buying it. Tesla’s Optimus robot has improved dexterity — enough to handle an egg. The latest model can move with more grace, perhaps thanks to its Tesla-designed actuators and sensors. It walks 30 percent faster and can handle objects more delicately. Meta Quest 2, 3 and Pro headset owners can now stream hundreds of games through Xbox Cloud Gaming but will need an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate membership, a compatible controller, and a solid internet connection.
