On the other side, Tesla Model S autopilot takes over and saves driver from collision, according to Marketwatch. At what time Ohioan Joshua Brown took his Tesla Model S for a spin earlier on Sunday, he got familiar fast with how handy the autopilot system could be as it took over, and avoided a crash.
In remarks attributed to driver alongside video, released earlier this month on YouTube, he recounted what happened at what time a heavy truck equipped with a hydraulic lifting system unbeknownst to him:
“I was driving down the interstate and you can see the boom lift truck in question on the left side of the screen on a joining interstate road. Once the roads merged, the truck tried to get to the exit ramp on the right and never saw my Tesla. 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.”
