Or he could be a later German ruler, fighting on multiple fronts and losing it all. Time will tell.

IMO if a fireman had been walking behind that firetruck it would have been all over for Tesla ... they are playing a dangerous game with autopilot. The excuse that it's driver responsibility will only fly as long as only drivers get killed.


That German ruler came about 50 years later.

Hasn’t autopilot cars and trucks been about a year away for the past 30 years.  I worked in a building which had two autonomous mail carts.  They followed a wire beneath the carpet.  But they were only traveling 2 mph.

Hasn’t auto pilot for take offs and landing been around for 40 years or more?  We stilll don’t trust is and pilots still are in control for landings and takeoffs.  And just like cars it’s been proven they both are hackable.

The latter simply isn't true. Complex or challenging landings have to be done by the autopilot. It can land an aircraft in conditions that render a human pilot helpless.
