Fatality in Tesla Autopilot mode

As previously reported by TechRepublic, Joshua Brown was driving a Tesla engaged in Autopilot mode when his vehicle collided with a tractor-trailer on a Florida highway, in the first-reported fatality of the feature. Since the accident, Telsa has announced major upgrades to its Autopilot software, which Elon Musk claimed would have prevented that collision. There have been other fatalities linked to Autopilot, including one in China, although none can be directly tied to a failure of the AI system.
