See if this helps.

I must be missing something from that video.

Does it actually steer itself around the obstacle?

It says it must be initiated by the driver. Then what?

In the video, after the woman steers to the left, what action does the car take then?

Because it looks like she’s driving herself around the car that pops out.

I wondered that too. Maybe it just gives extra power steering "oomph", or helps you not to oversteer?

From Ford's description of this, ESA can amplify the driver's steering command in specific scenarios where a collision would otherwise happen:

If the distance to the vehicle ahead of you isn’t too short and a collision can’t be avoided by braking alone, Evasive Steering Assist can help you maneuver around the vehicle by providing additional steering support when the effort you’re applying is not sufficient.
