Tesla Autopilot Does Good One man is crediting Tesla Autopilot with saving his life, allowing the self-driving software to pilot him and his Model X SUV to a hospital as he endured a pulmonary embolism. Joshua Neally, from Branson, MO., had engaged Autopilot when he started having severe pain. The software had control of the Model X before getting to an exit ramp, where Neally took over to get to the emergency room. He believes without Autopilot, he would have had to pull over, make a call and wait for an ambulance—certainly a delay in his care. (Via Tech Times)
