Tesla Model S Driver Caught Sleeping While On Autopilot (VIDEO)

A driver of a Tesla Model S was caught sleeping while the car was on autopilot.

Is this real?!? Oh my goodness.

Tesla’s Autopilot is designed to detect if a driver is “unconscious.” A driver must always be ready to take control of the vehicle at any time.

According to Electrek:

“If the system lacks data to continue to actively steer the vehicle safely, it will show an alert on the dashboard. If the driver ignores the alert for too long, it will emit a sound and decelerate while activating the hazard lights and moving the vehicle to the side of the road. The vehicle basically assumes that the driver is unconscious if he can’t take control after visual and audible alerts.”

Honestly, this looks like the future of self-driving cars. People just falling asleep and letting the car take complete control of everything.

If it’s 100% safe, why not right?
