First Autopilot running on the road video

Very cool. Wish we could see how it handles curves!
Here you go. Brand new video from WSJ:

Tesla Downloads 'Autopilot' to Its Vehicles

Interesting quote: "In a nod to regulators, the car makes you put your hands back on the wheel every so often, or it will start to slow down and bleat at the driver with a warning bell."

Every so often = timed?

How would Tesla know who that is?

Every so often = timed?

Ever so often the car comes to an exit ramp and the right lane line veers off. Ever so often the car comes to an on ramp that causes the lane line gap to widen. Ever so often there is patchwork on the road that obscures a lane line for a second or two.
The problem is that if this operates like MB then even though the car has locked back on the lane lines within a second or two the system will still force you to grab the steering wheel when it is totally unnecessary.

Well that sounds like it will suck.
