I saw the details of this story on a blog which listed Tesla's instructions from the owner's manual. The 2 requirements that I found to be strange were:
(Paraphrasing here)
1) Driver must keep 2 hands on the steering wheel, and
2) Driver must pay attention to the road ahead in case Autopilot misses something and driver must then take appropriate action.

So what good is this Autopilot if you have to follow those 2 instructions? This is no better than a regular cruise control system.

@robo: These systems have a long way to go before Seniors will be able to rely on them to make their driving "safer."
