A Tesla driver was caught sleeping on the highway with his car on Autopilot

 

We can’t be certain, but it looks like this Tesla owner is asleep at the wheel while his Model S is on Autopilot.

Autopilot is a pretty incredible system. It uses 13 ultrasonic sensors to help Tesla cars steer themselves and change lanes, avoid obstacles and barriers, and even park themselves. There’s even a feature where you can “summon” your car to come pick you up.

That said, Autopilot doesn’t mean Tesla’s cars with this software are fully autonomous. Far from it: Tesla and its CEO Elon Musk have repeatedly told drivers not to sleep at the wheel with Autopilot on, and that it’s important for drivers to have their hands on the wheel in case anything should happen.
