According to a report by "Car Buzz", a specialist in cars and transportation, this decision to resign comes after the self-driving system (autopilot) in Tesla caused fatal road accidents.
And the US Highway Traffic Safety Administration revealed that the largest number of car accidents related to the autopilot system and driver assistance systems that were recorded in the United States was Tesla, which led to the opening of an investigation.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk has laid off 200 employees in its artificial intelligence division, after it received full autonomous driving (FSD) systems.
“It has been a great pleasure to help Tesla achieve its goals over the past five years, and it has been a difficult decision to resign after we have come this path together,” wrote Karpathi, a former chief AI advisor at Tesla.
"Autopilot has evolved from lane-keeping to city-street driving and I look forward to seeing the very strong Autopilot team continue this momentum and progress," he added on Twitter.
The technology in Tesla also relied heavily on FSD cameras and the autopilot system, and in the coming period this old technology will turn to be replaced by a more accurate system that uses radar.
Autopilot and FSD have both been accused of a "phantom braking" problem or worse, not recognizing pickups as solid objects on the road.
And it became clear that the system suffers from serious problems that lead to fatal accidents, which necessitated the opening of an investigation by the Federal Agency to get to the core of the problems.
According to information from Bloomberg Economic Agency, the National Traffic Safety Administration in America found, through research, auditing and data survey, that out of 367 accidents recorded by 12 car companies in the United States during the period from July 2021 to May 15, 2022, the share of Tesla was 273.
