The guy was a software engineer at Apple and he thought setting his car to auto-pilot was a good idea so that he could play video games.
According to investigators, Apple software engineer Walter Huang was playing a video game on his smartphone at the time of his fatal crash on Hwy 101 in Mountain View, California, in 2018.
Systems like Autopilot cannot drive themselves, yet drivers continue to use them without paying attention.
“This means that when driving in the supposed ‘self-driving’ mode, you can’t read a book, you can’t watch a movie or TV show, you can’t text and you can’t play video games,” he said.
Can someone explain the purpose of auto-pilot if you’re supposed to keep your eyes on the road? I don’t get it.
