Self-Driving Car Saves Momma Bear and Cubs
Occurred on / Montana, USA
Info: I was driving my Model 3 Performance near Glacier National Park in Montana in the evening. Most of the road trip from Utah to Montana was done on Autopilot, including this moment, where you can see the car goes from cruising at 50mph, to a full stop when sensing this family of bears. The mama bear immediately jumps back out on to the road to get between us and her cubs. She then gives us the death stare until we back up away from her two cubs.
This was an amazing demonstration of how much better the Autopilot function has gotten since I received the car. Not only did autopilot sense the family of bears in the dark while the car was going 50mph, but the Dashcam feature recorded the whole thing in great resolution! Thanks again Tesla!
