Tesla unveils Safety Score Beta

Tesla TSLA has a new version of its safety system that is designed to evaluate driving behavior.

The Safety Score Beta aims to provide drivers with feedback, while also encouraging safer driving habits and lower insurance costs. The Hard Braking Safety Factor was revised to exclude braking events that occur when a vehicle detects a yellow traffic light.

The Safety Factors are measured directly by Tesla vehicles using the onboard sensors and Autopilot software. These factors are: Forward Collision Warning, Hard Braking, Aggressive Turning, Unsafe Following, Excessive Speeding, Late Night Driving, Forced Autopilot DisengagementAutopilot Disengagement and Unbuckled Driving. The overall safety score, which is calculated on a scale from 0 to 100, has higher scores indicating safer driving.

The safety score 2.0 of Tesla allows drivers to make the necessary adjustments to improve their Safety Scores and reduce the risk of collisions. The formula will be refined as Tesla gathers more customer data and insights, and the company expects to make further refinements in the future.
