In the wake of the first fatal accident behind the wheel of a Tesla in autonomous ‘Autopilot’ Mode, is it the Tesla car that is to blame or the stupidity of the drivers thinking that the car in autopilot is that advanced that they can literally sit back, relax and let the car do all the hardwork.
This compilation video shows drivers doing just that. Playing patty cake, rubix cube, boardgames and even sleeping in the Tesla on the motorway! According to Tesla, autopilot, does actually require the driver to be ready to take control at any time.
I wonder if Tesla wishes they had chosen a different name now than Autopilot as it seems some people are taking the feature literally by it’s name at face value!
