How big of a deal will autonomous driving be is best shown in this short video. A grandson gave his grandma the Tesla Model S and told her to turn on the Autopilot feature. Now, the grandma, apparently, has been driving cars for all her life and she learned that keeping hands on the wheel in ten-02 fashion is the safest thing you can do in a car. Well, what happens when you tell a 70-year old driver to keep her hands o the wheel and off pedals and let the car drive itself. This happens.
Poor grandma almost lost her mind trying to let the Tesla Model S drive itself. She was properly scared and her grandson caught all the freaking out on tape. Well, not on tape, but considering the quality of the video we would not be so surprised if it really was on tape.
Nevertheless, the 45-second long video gives us all we need to know about the transformation the world of cars will endure in a few year’s time. The autonomous drive is coming and we’d be better of if we accepted it as fast as possible. This video may be the best representation of the amazing technology the Tesla Model S and some other cars give to us at this point in time. We cannot wait to see what will we have in two year’s time.
