The Model Y crossover, moving in autonomous mode, at the very last moment was able to deviate from a collision with a GMC Sierra 2500 HD pickup, towing a large trailer
Tesla’s autopilot has managed to prevent a serious accident on the fast lane in the United States. The corresponding video was posted on YouTube by the owner of the electric car. The Model Y crossover, which moves autonomously, at the very last moment was able to deviate from a collision with a GMC Sierra 2500 HD pickup, towing a large trailer.
The video from Tesla cameras shows how a pickup truck with a trailer at high speed begins to drive into the lane of an electric crossover. Whether the driver of the GMC Sierra tried to change lanes or it happened by accident is unknown. As a result, the autopilot reacted to the danger in time, reduced the crossover speed and deviated from the collision with the trailer.
The owner of Tesla Model Y said that the autopilot “saved his life.” According to Insideevs, most likely, at the time of the incident, the motorist’s hands were on the steering wheel of the car, but he did not have time to react himself.
According to the owner of the electric car, he is not very happy with his crossover. The motorist stressed that he had a very bad experience in buying and owning a car, but this incident made up for all the inconveniences.
Tesla Motors has repeatedly stated that the Autopilot system is purely an auxiliary function. The driver must always keep his hands on the steering wheel, look at the road and be ready to take control at any time. This is also stated in the manual for American electric cars.
