Cars With Autopilot

Tesla has been considering adding driverless technology to its vehicles and held discussions with Google, Musk told Bloomberg News in May. While Google has coined the phrase "self-driving car" for the technology it's developing, Musk prefers the term "autopilot."

"Self-driving sounds like it’s going to do something you don’t want it to do," Musk said. "Autopilot is a good thing to have in planes, and we should have it in cars."
