The Autopilot allows me to produce better crops more efficiently, improving my competitive edge in the marketplace," Downing says.
The aircraft made its erratic movements immediately after the autopilot was disengaged, it said.
For one thing, a pair of G5's connected to the autopilot can provide sizable amounts of redundancy because they offer independent ADAHRS and crosscheck--something the FAA will likely require under ASTM approval.
But getting the computing and input gains just right is only half the battle in engineering an autopilot that should fly the airplane better than a human.
In fact, early on in my aviation career, I was severely admonished not to use an autopilot in a situation involving an engine issue--whether aboard a single or twin--and to hand-fly the airplane to obtain maximum feedback from its behavior.
Karl Brauer, a senior analyst at Kelley Blue Book, said the changes should reduce some of the problems drivers have reported with Autopilot, including cars in the right lane on a freeway drifting toward an exit, even when the driver doesn't wish to leave the road.
The crash was the first with a known fatality in more than 130 million miles of Autopilot driving, according to Tesla.
In a blog post last week, Tesla said its Autopilot system has been safely used in more than 100 million miles of driving, and that the crash wasn't "materially significant" because it didn't change what Tesla had said about the Autopilot's "capabilities and limitations.
Tech company founder Mr Brown was part of Tesla's "EV community", a group of electric vehicle enthusiasts, and he had posted 20 videos of the Model S and its autopilot feature to his YouTube channel.
The investigation of the first known fatality to involve a Model S operating on Autopilot comes as Tesla and other automakers are gearing up to offer systems that allow vehicles to pilot themselves under certain conditions across a wide range of vehicles over the next several years.
India, July 1 -- A driver, riding on a Tesla Model S with Autopilot mode activated, has died of a fatal accident met between the vehicle and a tractor trailer on a divided highway in central Florida.
