A team of ducks crossing the road in Gisborne, New Zealand were saved when Tesla Autopilot sensed the fowl in the road and swerved at the last minute, narrowly avoiding them.

According to the video's description, the driver of the Tesla Model 3 didn't notice the ducks because of a shadow on the road. But Autopilot did, and stepped in just in time, braking and veering into the adjacent empty lane.

"If it wasn't for the Autopilot function, I think the ducks would not have survived," the driver wrote.
