Autopilot - not

One thing that Tesla's control software is not is an autopilot. No autopilot vendor recommends that the pilot keep their hands on the controls at all times, that is the whole point of the damn thing. Nor do autopilots cut out automatically and leave the plane potentially out of control.

Tesla need to be sued for misleading users and to be forced to change the product name.

If it was just called "supercruise" or similar, we might be less inclined to hand over responsibility to it.
