The girl went out on the road in front of the electric car, and the guy at the wheel checked or noticed his autopilot, but kept his foot above the brake pedal and did not accelerate faster than 40 km / h. Of course, negative reviews about the video were massive, but the driver said that his wife herself wanted to become a “living target”.

As for the test results, the autopilot did not “see” his wife when she was slowly walking or running along the road, but noticed her and braked when the girl stood in the middle of the road, and even near the car. Apparently, the Musk needs to work on the autopilot system in order to avoid the terrible consequences on the road.
