Tesla vehicles currently offer a function named Passenger Play, with which several video games can be played via the touchscreen of the car. Officially, this is only approved for passenger — that even drivers use the function, but Tesla can not monitor. And exactly the US traffic authority has a problem.
Tesla must deactivate Passenger Play
For the main reasons why the function now has to disappear from the vehicles, the fact that video games could distract the driver — even if only the passenger uses the screen. In addition, the touchscreen should be used to display the navigation and other information about the vehicle. Tesla has already approved the decision of the authority and will deactivate Passenger Play with a Update — at least when the vehicle is in motion.
Passenger Play has already been criticized at the start
Shortly after the launch of Passenger Play, the function was criticized by safety concerns from the gaming industry. Cup head and Fallout Shelter counted to the first titles that could be played over the screen in the vehicle. The update will soon be published for all Tesla models S, X, Y and 3 between 2017 and 2022.
