Tesla's Autopilot Chief Transitions From Company After 6 Months Of Service

By Brian Spaen

On the heels of crash data being revealed in a fatal accident with the Tesla Autopilot program, the car manufacturer has announced changes in their leadership. Chris Lattner has left his position as head of software, and responsibility will be split among two other people.

Lattner’s stint with Tesla lasted six months before leaving his position. He was the senior director of Apple’s developer tools department for over five years prior to getting the gig he just vacated. Lattner posted in a tweet back on Tuesday night that Tesla wasn’t “a good fit,” and that he is looking forward to future opportunities.

Tesla gave this statement to Electrek following Lattner leaving the company: “Chris just wasn’t the right fit for Tesla, and we’ve decided to make a change. We wish him the best.”
