US Senator calls on Tesla to rebrand ’Autopilot’ function

US Sen. Edward Markey on Friday urged Tesla to rebrand its driver assistance system Autopilot, saying it has ’an inherently misleading name’. Markey called for ’rebranding and remarketing the system to reduce misuse, as well as building backup driver monitoring tools that will make sure no one falls asleep at the wheel’. Tesla said it had taken steps to ensure driver engagement with the system.

Nice to see Musk responding quickly. If this is accurate and my knowledge of government speed vs. business speed is as well, Elon had new versions baking before the senator knew there was a problem.

It works quite well. There is no way you can sleep. They must be faking.
