Scarily Enough, Tesla’s Autopilot Doesn’t Always Stop To Save Pedestrians

Crash

Those against autonomous vehicles have yet another reason for their concerns.

There is plenty of research out there that promotes autonomous driving technology by showing us just how much safer a computer is compared to a human driver. Given that the technology is relatively new and only recently left the research lab, consumers have been preforming their own tests to see if the machinery lives up to the claims. Here we see one such test conducted with a Tesla Model S P90D and its owners very trusting friend. This one test shows us that some work still needs to be done on Autopilot.

In other news, this may be the first time that it is possible to commit insurance fraud where the automaker is blamed.
