The Owner of the Electric Car Tesla Decided to Test the Autopilot on His Wife

The reliability of the autopilot from the luxury electric Tesla cars manufacturer often becomes a subject for discussion in the media recently.

We want tо remind you:

A New Model 3 Tesla Was Involved in a Deadly Crash in Florida

One of Tesla car owners posted a video on Youtube (now it’s already removed) of his own testing of the autonomous emergency braking system. Though there is something not quite ordinary in this test – the car owner used his wife as an obstacle. She had to go out on the road directly in front of the car. At this time, her husband was driving a Tesla at a speed of about 40 kilometers per hour and kept his foot on the brake.

It is worth noting that the experimenter received a lot of angry comments. Many users criticized the actions of the young man, some even advised him to switch places with his wife.

In his defense, the owner of Tesla said that, firstly, his wife volunteered to be a pedestrian and did not want to drive, and secondly, this test took place at ridiculous speed and on a closed part of the road. For this reason, he had complete control over the situation and there was no danger to the health or life of his wife.

Well, talking about the results of this test, the autopilot system did not recognize the woman when she was walking or running along the road. She only became visible for Tesla software, when she stood on its way or near the car.
