The Tesla autopilot is undeniably impressive, but while the company doesn’t recommend people use it ands then just fall asleep, just use the system on motorways and highways – but the system does also kick in when needed in certain circumstances, such as this driver for Uber who has a Tesla Model S. The driver, Jon Hall was driving one rainy evening when a car pulled out in front, without autopilot he would have crashed but the car braked for him. Tesla Autopilot was added to cars just a few weeks ago with a software update, version 7.0. This added support for braking and controlling the engine, this all works to stop collisions like this. The Tesla Model S can also park itself, adjust cruise control for traffic and change headlights from low to high beam.
