Tesla Model S Driver Caught Sleeping on Autopilot
The Tesla Model S has a really cool feature called “Autopilot.” While this feature is called Autopilot, it’s not true autopilot. The driver is still required. Video surfaced this week of a Tesla Model S driver caught sleeping while using the Autopilot feature. With more than 1.5 million views on YouTube alone in a couple days, some skeptics believe Tesla released this video as part of a viral marketing campaign.
Tesla’s Autopilot feature can steer within a lane, change lanes with the tap of the turn signal, manage speed and stop to adapt to traffic, steer to avoid collisions, parallel park, and more. This incredible system is always being improved via software updates.
