Music producer Zedd shares story about how Tesla Autopilot ‘probably’ saved his life
In a recent Twitter post, music producer Anton Zaslavski has a shared a story about how the ‘Autopilot’ semi-autonomous driver assist system of his Tesla electric vehicle had ‘probably’ saved his life.
Anton Zaslavski, who is popularly known by his stage name Zedd, has 8 million followers on Twitter. In his new post on the social microblogging platform, he has mentioned how the Autopilot system of his Tesla electric vehicle helped him out of a potential danger.
Sharing his story about the Tesla Autopilot system, Zedd said in the Twitter post that he once dozed off while driving home late at night on the highway, with the Autopilot of his Tesla car left on.
Zedd further said that he “got woken up” by the Autopilot system which kept “beeping + turning off music to wake me up;” and added: “Would have prob been dead without it.”
With the Autopilot system being held responsible for some of the recent crashes involving Tesla’s electric vehicles, Zedd has shared his story about the system because he feels that it “shows the other side” of the Autopilot system.
Zedd’s story has drawn attention to the fact that the Autopilot system in Tesla vehicles sends periodic alerts to drivers to ensure that they keep their hands on the wheel. The system prompts the drivers to remain alert all the time, so that they can take control of their vehicles when required.
