Putting an autopilot drive system on a toy car is a great achievement for an engineer, but making it work in real-world scenarios in a 691-horsepower electric car is definitely worth the world’s attention.
Going further, to make that autopilot system become even more badass than a parking ticket cop, is stellar.
Although it’s a bit late for this, Tesla made an April’s fools-like video where a Tesla Model S is avoiding parking tickets by playing smart with a cop. Well, in the real world, things aren’t going to end up like this, but it’s a start.
