A video showing a model of Tesla traveling on the road without anyone in the driver's seat circulating in social media on Monday night .
The luxury electric car seems to have worked on the autopilot, Tesla's semi-autonomous technology, which allows its vehicles to be equipped with a control, accelerating, braking and switching function with driver supervision.
At one point on the camcorder, the camera goes to the windshield to show that the car is traveling at speeds on a two-lane road. The digital tool can be seen when "115" is displayed, but it is not clear whether this number is miles per hour or kilometers per hour.

A drink holder containing a bottled drink is attached to the wheel of the car.
The camera then deviates from the S-driver's empty seat to reveal a person lying in the backseat.
Videos showing Tesla drivers who are sleeping or otherwise busy behind the wheel are quite common even when the carmaker asks their customers to stay under the control of their vehicles while they work with them on an autopilot.
The system requires drivers to hold their hands on the steering wheel. It activates a series of warnings if it does not find feedback from the driver and deactivates if there is no response.
Tesla did not respond immediately to Business Insider's request to comment on the video on Monday night.
