Tesla Model S on the road more than 100km / h … but without driver [vídeo]


Tesla Model S on the road more than 100km / h … but without driver [vídeo]

Driving is one of the actions that is changing with technology. Increasingly, the car (as a smart machine) takes on much of the driving, although the presence and human attention behind the wheel is crucial.

So when does the driver not exist? The wiser would be the car did not walk, but a video contradicts this theory. See a Tesla Model S driving on the road at over 100km / h and without driver.

The (in) safety of autopilot driving on Tesla cars

This morning a video on Twitter appeared that shows a Tesla Model S driving on a two-lane road … but without a driver. The car has at least two people inside but one lying in the back seat and another on the hangs, filming the whole scene.

With driver supervision, Tesla cars equipped with Autopilot technology can provide semi-autonomous driving. In other words, they accelerate, control the steering, lock and change lanes, without the driver having to intervene. However, it continues to play a key role in the control of this whole autonomous system.

In the digital dashboard of the car, when the camera is directed to the road, it is possible to see the number “115”, in the habitual place where it is shown the speed at which the Tesla cars are circulating. Thus, it can be concluded that the car in question would be circulating at 115km / h at the time the video was captured.

The danger of semi-autonomous driving being confused with autonomous

It is very common to see videos of drivers of this type of cars (semi-autonomous, requiring the attention of the driver) completely unconcerned with driving, some of them even sleeping while the car circulates on the road. But this video goes further. The safety of the Tesla Model S is allowing a car to circulate without anyone sitting in the driver's seat.

So far, Tesla has not yet ruled on this case.
