Ex-Tesla employees claim that sensitive images were captured by vehicl – Tesla Maison

According to a new report from Reuters, nine ex-Tesla employees claim that sensitive images were sent by vehicles to the company's internal messaging system.

According to the report, ex-employees described sharing images of the vehicles that were captured using the vehicle's exterior cameras. However, what they saw wasn't technically PG.

According to one employee, a "video showing a naked man approaching an automobile" was shared by the messaging system. However, that's not all.

Former Tesla employees were said to have sifted through videos and images of road-rage incidents, and crashed vehicles. One of the videos showed a child riding his bike getting hit by a Tesla travelling at a high speed. The video spread quickly throughout the company's San Mateo office.

Pictures of dogs, funny road signs and humorous captions were also captured. These memes were made with amusing commentary or captions. According to the report, these images were then shared via private group chats.

According to one employee, not all the videos appeared to have been recorded while the vehicle is on or in motion. One worker said that they were able to see into garages and private homes. The report says that these videos were only recorded "if owners consented".

An employee claimed that images were captured in garages and private properties. He also stated that they could identify certain people based upon the distinctive nature their belongings. One of these was the "Wet Nellie," which was a submersible vehicle used by James Bond in 1977's "The Spy Who Loved Me."

Elon Musk is the owner of this vehicle. However, Reuters stated that it was not clear if Musk knows that the video has been shared.

Tesla states on its website, "Customers' privacy is and will always remain enormously important to Us."

Tesla was forced to change the way it promoted Sentry Mode in Germany earlier in the week due to its violation privacy laws.
