Tesla ponders over new approach as to auto-piloting

In light of several accidents that have involved its assisted driving technology, Tesla should rethink just how much automation it provides to drivers, automotive experts said.

While Tesla's Autopilot advanced driver assistance system (ADAS) uses cameras and radar, the carmaker should consider adding LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) technology, which uses lasers to create 3D scans of objects around a vehicle.

Tesla CEO Elon Musk has said he doesn't think his all-electric vehicles need LiDAR, and argues that passive forward-looking radar can accomplish ADAS functions.
