The police then carried out a roadside sobriety test which Samek failed. Tesla's Autopilot, which is one of the most advanced on the market, was recently used to drive seven miles down a highway while the driver is alleged to have been asleep and drunk behind the wheel.
The officers slowed the auto down after running a traffic break, with an officer behind Samek turning on emergency lights before driving across all lanes of the highway, in an S-shaped path, to slow traffic down behind the Tesla, Montiel said. Alexander Samek, the chair of the Los Altos planning commission, was arrested under suspicion of driving under the influence and was taken to the San Mateo County Jail. As this was above the speed limit, officers pulled up alongside the vehicle and noticed that Samek was allegedly asleep, leading them to assume it was in autopilot mode.
"It's great that we have this technology; however, we need to remind people that. even though this technology is available, they need to make sure they know they are responsible for maintaining control of the vehicle", California Highway Patrol public information officer Art Montiel said.
However, autopilot is supposed to detect if the driver's hands are on the wheel or not and recent software updates warn drivers in as little as 30 seconds if it suspects they may not be paying attention. The vehicle is created to alert a driver if it does not detect hands on the wheel.
What's curious is how the Autopilot stayed activated for as long as it did in this case; Tesla CEO Elon Musk says the company is looking into the specifics of this situation.
