Tesla's autopilot does not comply with the applicable legislation and manufacturer's cars poses may be a security risk on Swedish roads.
So significant was the allegations made by the Swedish Transportstyrelsen fixed against the u.s. elbilproducent back in 2015. And the Swedish authorities considered it seriously. Initiated a process, which could ultimately make it temporarily over to buy Tesla's electric cars to the east of the Peberholmen.
It writes the Berlingske tidende, which cites Svenska Dagbladet.
the Problem that got Transportstyrelsen to shout, sounding the alarm, was Tesla's ability to update its cars wi-fi - and thus outside the control of the authorities. It was Tesla the only car manufacturers who could, and it made the authorities unable to respond, if the manufacturer suddenly got the urge to make electric cars more self-propelled.
the Cars were already equipped with the technology that would be used in order to get it to happen. Cameras, sensors and radar is in other words, in place, and the only one which, according to Berlingske was missing was an update of the operating system.
It was not, however, such right to slow down Tesla from selling cars in Sweden. The manufacturer's model had been approved in the Netherlands, and because Sweden is part of the EU, could Transportstyrelsen not override this approval, or the software updates that Tesla has introduced in its cars.
According to Berlingske tried the Swedish authorities, therefore, to take contact for both your Dutch colleagues and the EU, but neither in the Hague or Brussels shared it seems the Swedish point of view.
Therefore, Sweden could not stop Tesla from selling cars in the country, although one would like. It was only possible to slow down the manufacturer temporarily through a special rule called Article 29.
the Rule makes it possible to stop the sale of cars, which poses a safety hazard - and it would consider to long to make use of, says Anders Gunneriusson from Transportstyrelsen.
- We have a article 29-procedure on Tesla. This means that we examine whether Sweden should stop Tesla from selling cars in six months, if there is a serious trafiksikkerhedsrisiko, he says, according to Berlingske tidende, to Svenska Dagbladet.
In the interview with the Swedish daily newspaper Svenska Dagbladet pointed out Anders Gunneriusson, however, that the Swedish authorities were considering to shelve the matter, and that probably had an accident to, before you took the Article 29 in use.
It has Transportstyrelsen subsequently made the seriousness of the. In a pressemeddelelese Tuesday, Anders Gunneriusson determined that the case is finally completed.
- This is a case which we have followed in three years, and we are finishing it now, because the risk of accidents involving Tesla's autopilot system has been reduced, he says in the press release.
In an email to the Svenska Dagbladet points out, Tesla's Swedish head of communications, Maria Lantz, that updating the software always keeps within the limits of the law.
- Tesla stresses that all updates that are introduced in Europe, fully harmonises with all the EU's type approval requirements, writes Maria Lantz, according to Berlingske.
Since January 2014, according to Bilsweden been registered 4901 cars from the american manufacturer in the country.
