Tesla is Tired of Bad Autopilot Videos So the Company Decided to Make One Itself

By: | January 31st, 2016

A quick internet search of Tesla’s autopilot feature will bring up a whole bunch of videos showing Tesla owner’s doing rather stupid things with their vehicles.

While Elon Musk’s company has made it very clear that the autopilot mode is in “beta,” it appears many owners are just ignorant or don’t seem to care.

As a result, Tesla has released its own ad showing off the autopilot capabilities without any nonsense involved.

From the car pulling itself out of the garage in the morning, to changing lanes on its own on the highway, Tesla’s autopilot is a wonderful feature when used correctly.

In the video, however, you will notice how the driver never takes his hands off the steering wheel, something people have been doing that is completely unsafe.

At the end, the Tesla parallel parks itself on command which I personally could use all the time.

At the moment, Tesla is working on adding some constraints to its autopilot feature to “minimize the possibility of people doing crazy things with it,” says CEO Elon Musk.
