It’s the Tuesday before TIFF. A policeman is leaning on his bike while writing up a yellow ticket for a flatbed truck heaped with metal crowd-control barriers. It stands in a no-parking, no-stopping zone, in front of a driveway and beside a fire hydrant. But there isn’t a single spot available today. Roy Thomson Hall, David Pecaut Square and the TIFF Bell Lightbox are all within metres of each other, and Wellington Street is a cyclone of activity. Workers are unpacking outsized tents, window washers are wiping down glass and men in cherry pickers are changing light bulbs at the entrance of the Ritz-Carlton. It’s T minus two days to the Toronto International Film Festival.Franck Arnold, the charismatic European general manager of the Ritz-Carlton Toronto, wants me to experience an A-lister entrance. He signals for a prearranged limo to collect us from the front semi-circle, freshly planted with fall’s mums. “A guest’s arrival is a crucial time for us,” he explains, as I slide my ripped jeans and Converse into the modified Audi A8 stretch. “We don’t make a big fuss, pretty much on the contrary. One of our most critical services is confidentiality.”I’m whisked to the lower depths of the underground garage, relaxing into the leather as classical music tinkles away. We arrive 27 seconds later. My door is opened and I step out onto the welcoming blue carpet at the undisclosed underground entrance (normally there’d be security, too). I step inside. There’s a sign painted on the whitewashed cinder block that says, Entrée des Artistes. Advertisement Advertisement Facebook Twitter “This is the time of year Toronto is transformed. It’s a metamorphosis,” Arnold says. We’re now on the 20th-floor club lounge, sipping Pilot Coffee cappuccinos. “There’s a certain atmosphere, a certain vibe,” he explains. “It draws the attention of something that isn’t necessarily about finances. You see it in Paris and London, too. The restaurants and bars are full, and traffic is blocked in certain areas during festivals. It’s about art.”
Citation: Tesla chief defends self-driving cars after new crash (2018, May 15) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-05-tesla-chief-defends-self-driving-cars.html Musk lamented on Twitter about what he portrayed as an unfair focus on mishaps rather than benefits of autonomous vehicles with the potential to make roads safer.”It’s super messed up that a Tesla crash resulting in a broken ankle is front page news and the (approximately) 40,000 people who died in US auto accidents alone in past year get almost no coverage,” Musk said in a tweet.”What’s actually amazing about this accident is that a Model S hit a fire truck at 60mph and the driver only broke an ankle.”Whether an Autopilot feature was engaged when a Model S collided with the rear of a stopped fire truck in the US state of Utah on May 11 remained to be confirmed.According to local media, police said the woman at the wheel of the car claimed it was in a self-driving mode and that her attention was on her phone.Musk complained in a recent earnings call that accidents involving self-driving cars get sensational headlines while the potential for the technology to save lives is downplayed or ignored.Among accidents to make headlines was a fiery March 23 crash in California that involved its “Autopilot” feature.The US National Transportation Safety Board is investigating the accident, which led to the death of a 38-year-old father of two, Walter Huang. Tesla has released several statements on the accident, including a March 30 blog post that expressed sorrow for the family but defended its technology and pointed responsibility for the crash on the driver.Huang’s hands were “not detected on the wheel for six seconds prior to the collision,” Tesla said in the blog.While its cars have Autopilot capabilities, people in the driver seats are called on to be paying attention and ready to take control of steering wheels.The NTSB is also investigating a Tesla Model S crash that left two people dead and another injured in Florida.The 2014 Tesla was reportedly traveling at high speed when it hit a wall then caught fire last week, the NTSB said in a release.Autopilot self-driving capabilities of the Tesla were not expected to be involved, the NTSB said. The NTSB had yet to announce whether they will be looking into the Utah crash. Tesla chief Elon Musk defended self-driving car technology on Tuesday after reports about the latest crash involving one of the electric carmaker’s vehicles.
