Joann Muller reports that while most people know that cars are recording information about a car’s location, contacts shared, and other information recorded by “black boxes,” Tesla records more information than most other cars:

- It also monitors airbag deployments, braking and acceleration, which helps in accident investigations.
- And it knows when Autopilot, Tesla’s assisted-driving feature, is engaged or disengaged, and whether you have your hands on the wheel as you should.
