Tesla Tells Full Self-Driving Beta Testers To Accept They’ll Be Recorded
Tesla has begun to ask customers to accept that it will use inside and outside camera footage from their cars when they are part of the Full Self-Driving beta program. Tesla says that it will even go so far as to attach that footage to individual drivers, too.
The news, via Electrek, comes as Tesla begins to sure up the text relating to how the beta program functions.
Drivers will be able to test out the new self-driving functionality, but they should also expect Tesla to record what’s going on in case of a safety issue.
“By enabling FSD Beta, I consent to Tesla’s collection of VIN-associated image data from the vehicle’s external cameras and Cabin Camera in the occurrence of a serious safety risk or a safety event like a collision.”
The fact that the data will be associated with VINs means that data will be attached to the individual that owns the car, something that could be problematic for a number of people.
Tesla only allows people test their Full Self-Driving technology if they have a high enough Drier Safety Score, but it still wants to ensure that it has all the required video footage should something go wrong. This comes after a Tesla driver claimed that the beta was responsible for a crash.
