Tesla’s cars have the most advanced autonomous driving system, and at the same time, it is one of the most controversial systems in the automotive industry today.

This is supported by the latest video posted on Twitter, in which the Chinese test the system on artificial pedestrians.

The settings are simple, Tesla’s “three” moves straight at a lower speed, and an artificial pedestrian mounted on a sliding mechanism comes out in front of the car at a crucial moment, which should, at least in theory, spot and recognize the danger on the road and stop.

But in the test shown in the video, Tesla does not stop, and the unfortunate “pedestrian” is left without legs and a few other parts of his anatomy. The car is ultimately stopped by the driver himself.

In comments on Twitter, users joke that Tesla’s autopilot may be so advanced that he understands that it is just a doll so that there is no need to stop.

However, this is not the only video of its kind coming from China, and in another test, Tesla cut a pedestrian just as effectively.

In fact, the Chinese claim that Tesla’s vehicles achieved the worst results in testing the automatic braking system.

Tesla seems to have a blind spot in its system because it has now become common for their vehicles to collide with stationary objects (such as parked police vehicles or overturned trucks).

Tesla constantly emphasizes that when driving on autopilot, the driver must be behind the wheel and watch the road.

Tesla charges as much as $ 8,000 for its autopilot system and practically guarantees “completely autonomous driving”, although this technology is not yet in use. Therefore, if you are planning to buy a Tesla or own one of their models, keep your hands on the steering wheel and your eyes on the road and when it comes to driving on autopilot.
