Tesla fights back against eavesdropping allegation

The procurement of seven Tesla vehicles by the Basle police, does not run quite smoothly. After initially the high price of 140'000 Swiss francs per electric car was criticised, has turned now, the Basel supervisor Beat Rudin.

The Tesla model will offer features such as GPS and voice control, the police use of privacy can be legally dicey, wrote CH Media, in a report dated Thursday. For example, the Tesla vehicles would always listen to what is spoken in the vehicle interior. And that the recordings could be evaluated on the Server of the manufacturer. In addition, Tesla will have remote access to the vehicle and the position data.

That is potentially possible, shows the action of the car manufacturer in case of severe Storms in the United States. There, Tesla had unlocked in the past, remote access and more battery capacity in order to facilitate the vehicle owners to escape from the danger zone.

The Basel police had to solve the data protection problems before you can send their vehicles out on patrol, said data pads Rudin to CH Media. And compared to SRF: "It is tricky, if, for example, talks by police officers or detained be recorded."

No prior inspection occurred

Multiple media, including the daily Gazette.ch/Newsnet, the report of CH Media. Now the manufacturer fights back. Tesla vehicles would not save voice recordings, and the company's own servers to forward, say it in a comment. Also, location data would not be saved. And the customer would jeopardize the ability to disable the transfer of data from the vehicle entirely – without the safety of the occupants.

had taken What agreements the Canton of Basel-city with the vehicle manufacturers, when buying, is not known. Apparently, the leaders have signed the General terms and conditions of Tesla, reported CH Media. Conversely, this has not happened but. Therefore, it remains unclear what data may charge a Tesla in the spring of 2019 and forward, and may, if the vehicles are located in the Basel police. The need to clarify the data pads now. To Rudin said in the media: "prior checking of these problems would be at an early stage can be addressed, unfortunately, has not taken place."
