"WW2 autopilots"

Yes but the pilot is likely to still keep awareness of what is going on around them. I can't see why they don't call it a driving assistant, its there to assist driving and does what its designed to do very well from what I can tell. I think Tesla would be get less flack if it wasn't named AutoPilot, I assume the name AutoPilot would be able to do nearly everything (As Autopilot can in most airline aeroplanes manufactured in the past few years).
