The vehicle manufacturer (Tesla) has however, continuously warned that drivers must maintain control of the vehicle while the Autopilot system is in use, because the vehicles are not yet fully autonomous, even though the autopilot can maintain the high way lane and it distance in traffic it still requires attention from the driver.
I really think that they have tried in developing this technology even though it is yet to be fully enabled, but for it to be useful to the extent at which it has been is really commendable.
What do you think of Autopilot becoming the norm on our roads in the near future?
