At this time the owner of the electric car Tesla Model S decided that the area now empty of the exhibition could not be better suited for testing of the autopilot.

However, the owner of the electric vehicle, and inventors of the mechanical Concierge is not a laughing matter. The driver of the Tesla George Calder is forced to apologize, calling the “dead” robot “nice” and to explain his act of carelessness.

As a result, both sides caught in the incident, promised to conduct an internal investigation. Tesla will once again investigate the reasons why its autopilot not only did not notice the obstacle but did not stop the electric car after the collision. And the creators of the robot will attempt to determine the purpose of their “talking machine” left on the roadway.
