AutoComplete: Tesla's Q2 results are in, and it's a mix of good and badFord recalls 830k vehicles for door latches, and researchers find multiple ways to fool Tesla's Autopilot.
Today's August 4th and here's what's making news on Road Show. Tesla's quarterly reports are a mix of bad and good and it's new Q2 report is much the same. The company posted a non-gap loss of $150 million on $1.56 billion in revenue with 14,402 total deliveries. Tesla looks like it will fall short of its promise to deliver 80,000 cars this year. Even with some serious production ramp ups. Ford is recalling about 830,000 vehicles for an issue with its side latches which could either prevent the door from closing securely or unlatch the door while the vehicle is in motion. The recall affects several different Ford and Lincoln vehicles including the Mustang, Escape, Focus Cmax, transit connect, and MKC. Researchers have discovered multiple methods in which in which to sabotage the Tesla's semi-autonomous autopilot system. Using complicated, expensive equipment, the group was able to convince Autopilot's radar sensor that the path ahead was clear when it was not. Although they attempted to **** with autopilot's cameras, the system deactivated and told the driver to take control once again. Exciting stuff, unless you own a Tesla with autopilot.
