‘Tesla cars are killing peoples’ said Huawei smart car solution head, demoted by Huawei
The company explained that the unethical remark made by Su Qing is the reason for this strict action. A person has to be responsible for his deeds, that’s why the company is taking further actions.
Huawei smart car BU president Su Qing took part in the World Artificial Intelligence Conference. During his interaction with the media about autonomous driving technology and safety measurements, Qing made a controversial comment about the Tesla vehicles and their ADS technology.
In his answer, Su Qing used an unpleasant word to describe the issues with Tesla vehicles. He said machines from the big names such as Tesla cars are causing accidents in human society and “killing peoples” even in the case of autopiloting.
He added that Huawei is working hard to bring solid technologies to decrease the smart car issues. The company (indicating Huawei) wants to overcome the causes as low as possible that are responsible for increasing the accident rate.
Reacting to this whole story, the Huawei spokesperson explained that the statement (Tesla is killing peoples) was his (Su Qing) personal view, but the company believes that it harms the reputation of both firms.
The company decided to demote Su Qing from the President and Chief Architect to the strategic reserve team. He will receive the training in the distribution department and will reflect on his statement.
Furthermore, Huawei spokesperson stated that the company respects the struggles and participation of each enterprise and appreciates their work in the automotive industry. Moreover, the company believes that only the joint effort can bring a breakthrough in autonomous driving technology.
