Accidents happen, but not if you drive a Tesla!
This gut-wrenching video captured Tesla’s Model S Autopilot vehicle strategically moving out of the way to avoid colliding with a truck.
The driver, Joshua Brown, recounted the incident on YouTube by writing, “I actually wasn’t watching that direction and Tessy (the name of my car) was on duty with autopilot engaged. I became aware of the danger when Tessy alerted me with the ‘immediately take over’ warning chime and the car swerving to the right to avoid the side collision.”
Tesla CEO Elon Musk caught wind of the incident (and the video) and shared it to Twitter.
Watch the video below and SHARE if you think Tesla did a superb job perfecting autopilot!
